Of course where Beren was concerned, the Girdle of Melian was no match for the Suspenders of Lúthien.

(Just kidding, it's highly unlikely that Lúthien ever wore stockings.)

But how else would she keep her legs warm when she went running through the forest of Neldoreth in the middle of winter?


Tolkien's own drawings of his wife Edith in 1918. We all know he based Lúthien on her, and these drawings were made at the same general time that she went dancing amid the hemlock-umbels in a forest clearing, and she's definitely wearing stockings in some of those drawings!. Ergo, Lúthien also wore stockings. :)

Heh... I like how he didn't dare try to draw her face...
