Price of silk stockings in post-WW II London

I've tried googling the above phrase and a few variations of it, but struck out. Can anyone tell me about how much a pair of nice ladies' silk stockings would have cost in London, circa 1949? Would they be readily available, or would the black market have come into play? I know many things were rationed in England in the first years after the war.

ETA: Thanks to all who replied! Your answers were very helpful! I may have my character switch to nylons...
