“I do recommend it for all… put on a pair of fishnet stockings and find your inner sexiness!”

-Nia Vardalos


Fishnet stockings are a special type of legwear that are often considered to be extra slutty. They have a crisscrossed pattern that is made from thread, and they look really hot! You can have fishnet thigh highs, full stockings or even a body-stocking. Sometimes they even make shirts or dresses out of fishnet material. Fishnet creates a diamond design and it is also usually available in a lot of colors. Besides being worn by sexy people, they are also sometimes worn by Emo and punk people, and the fishnet pattern is also a popular one for certain fitness apparel on a small scale, because it can help to trap warmth making for some toasty garments.


Fishnet stockings and apparel have been around for a while, but it is hard to say exactly when they appeared. There is a fable by Aesop about a woman who solves a complex riddle by wrapping herself up in a fisherman’s net. Some say that fishnets started with exotic dancers around the turn of the 20th century, but photos reveal that striped and black stockings were more the fashion. They truly started to become more popular in the 1920s, because stretchy stockings hadn’t been invented yet and fishnets allowed more movement for active flappers! Since then they have always been a symbol of people who live a fun and free lifestyle.

Where to Get Them

If you want to have fishnets in your collection, you can go to any store, really. You can certainly find them at lingerie and sexy stores, but a lot of the time you can even find them at your local corner store, in the aisle where regular stockings are sold. However, if you want to see the greatest amount of variety, then you should definitely look online.
