The Brady Bunch
The later years of this show featured beautiful Maureen McCormick ("Marcia") as a junior, and then senior in high school. She was usually in mini-skirts and sheer pantyhose. 'Jan' (Eve Plum) also blossomed into a good looking girl sporting such outfits as well. Florence Henderson as 'Carol' (the Wife/Mother) looked outstanding in mini skirts & pantyhose too

Season 3 Summary
Some early hints what the trend line, or in this case hemline also, was: up! Maureen McCormick wore what looked to be nude, perhaps off-suntan (or poor quality brand), pantyhose during most of this season, but in episode 21 donned some wonderful off-black pantyhose, then wore better quality suntan pantyhose, the best episode #23 for the latter in that regard, setting the stage for continued “exploration” into hosiery in the series’ fourth and fifth seasons.

Season 5 Summary
Representative of fashion this year, the hemlines dropped :( - except what is found in episode 17 :) Pants were also more common. Also, they introduced a new character, a young boy, perhaps due to falling ratings, giving less screen time to the female characters. Perhaps these were factors as to why this was the last season of this series!
