Thigh High Thursday – 2011July08

Edit: Good lord, I can’t believe I mixed up my dates. XD

So I did a little back tracking on my THT posts and found out that I haven’t covered one of the more popular fetishes uniforms that are most commonly associated with thigh highs and knee high socks: Nurse uniforms.  I thought it best to rectify this lapse, and update the THT archives.

I also figured it’d be timely that I cover this now when I could do with a bit of TLC myself. I think I’m coming down with something… and of all days, now when I’m about to go on a trip.  I’m an need someone to give me my meds and check on my needs.

Anywho, here’s a quick wiki history lesson about the nurse uniform:

The first nurse uniforms were derived from the nun’s habit. Before the 19th century, nuns took care of sick and injured people so it was obvious that trained lay nurses might copy the nun’s habit as they have adopted ranks like “Sister”. One of Florence Nightingale’s first students (Miss VanRensselaer) designed the original uniform for the students at Miss Nightingale’s school of nursing. Before the 1940s minor changes occurred in the uniform. The clothing consisted of a mainly blue outfit. Hospitals were free to determine the style of the nurse uniform, including the nurse’s cap which exists in many variants.[1] In Britain, the national uniform (or simply “national”) was designed with the advent of the National Health Service (NHS) in 1948, and the Newcastle dress.[clarification needed] From the 1960s open necks began to appear. In the 1970s, white disposable paper caps replaced cotton ones; in the 1980s, plastic aprons displaced the traditional ones and outerwear began to disappear. From the 1990s, scrubs became popular in Britain, having first appeared in the USA; however, a majority of nurses in Britain continue to wear dresses, as in many other countries.
