1931 gave us the perfect solution for sagging stockings! "The Bonton Rayon Air Cushion Garter". A rubber tube surrounded by a rayon covering. Brilliant. I sure hope the tubing was more flexible when new. What's that you say? Your legs have fallen asleep? Numb? According to the unintentionally hilarious patent application these are ideal when you roll the top of the stocking down around them. I bet! The young lady who seems to have lost her balance on the card is a nice touch.
