Back seamed tights are one of the most traditional vintage tights, if not the number one most seasoned feature in legwear. Seams have been one of the most loved and appreciated kinds of motif or feature in the fashion industry, legwear or otherwise. Vintage tights are loved not just for their unrivalled sex appeal, but for their history and powerful leg lengthening effects. Seamed tights and other kinds of legwear exist out of necessity. This comes from the time when looms would knit lengths of fabric and seamstresses had to finish them entirely by hand. Backseams persisted after machinery became more sophisticated and shaped legs emerged, thanks to the sheer beauty and sexiness of this gorgeous type of leagwear. It's very difficult to create a seamless pair of tights or ones with an invisible seam. Modern machinery can do it quite well, but back in the time when seamed tights were popular, like the Jazz Era of the Roaring 1920s, everything was made by hand and with sewing machines. This meant something had to join up the fabric that was strong enough to hold but beautiful enough to look fantastic. Seamed tights are the product of a search for the perfectly balanced legwear and those qualities keep it one of the most popular legwear designs around. This is truly an unbeatable classic.
