According to Catherine Bach in an interview on E! True Hollywood Story, her famous "Daisy Duke" shorts almost didn't make it onto the show. According to the story, when network executives saw her wearing the shorts, they had a fit and told the producers she couldn't wear them. After arguing back and forth, the execs allowed her to wear them on one condition: She had to wear pantyhose beneath them (So nothing would accidentally be "revealed" should she bend over). Instead of detracting attention, as the execs hoped, the hose highlighted her legs and drew attention, making Bach a TV sex symbol.
