The Fascinating Legacy of the Fishnet Revolution

Fishnet has been around forever! No longer confined to adorning the legs of ‘adventurous’ stocking wearers, it is now one of the most versatile and ultimately sexy fabrics, to be found in the lingerie drawer of many a lingerie lover. Lets take a look at how this came about…

Fishnet’s Erotic Roots

Fishnet has a long and vague history. Depending on your age, you may think that Madonna was the first to wear it. Or your first recollection of fishnet stockings may be from the Rocky Horror picture show! I personally think back to the time of pin ups and burlesque stars such as Gypsy Rose Lee, Bettie Page and Jayne Mansfield. Certainly, fishnet stockings have always had erotic associations.

Thankfully as time and fashion has progressed; fishnet is now used in many garments. It is not limited to stockings and tights any more than it is limited to strippers, burlesque and drag queens. The fish net look isn’t the only a way to make an outfit look sexy. But going back to it’s original roots of being something favoured by women who worked in the businesses that had to do with turning men on; fishnet stockings and other such goodies are still a great way to get your man to notice you and really get his pulse racing! There is just something über-hot about fishnet tights or stockings.  Even more so these days thanks to spandex and lycra making them fit even better over your every curve!

Fishnet Backseamed Stockings

You don’t have to stick to stockings or tights to turn him on either. The selection is incredible these days! Consider some sexy lingerie like a fishnet bodystocking, teddy or bra set. Nevertheless, still to this day, something that men all seem to find to be the epitome of sexy is a pair of fishnet seamed stockings. MEOW!

Your journey into fishnet

Fishnet is now being enjoyed in dresses, lingerie, gloves, socks and bodystockings – for those that like to sex things up in the bedroom. Women of all ages can find a way to incorporate the look into their wardrobes without being sneered at or mistaken for a “loose woman”. However, that risqué history remains and fishnet will still evoke that sense of the erotic.

Fishnet Teddy Bodystocking

You may still be a little hesitant about wearing fishnet tights or even seamed stockings to work. Perhaps you find them too adventurous for your taste. This doesn’t mean that there is anything wrong with bringing out your inner vamp at home! The next time you’re shopping for stockings or tights, take a walk on the wild side. Take a peek at some of the fishnet goodies or other sexy patterned tights.

Maybe you can start venturing out of your comfort zone in small steps. First with some colour like a pair of red tights and then maybe some gloves. Then try something sexier, like fishnet dresses, teddy or bodystocking. You could even try wearing something under your suit or for your lover. I’m sure it won’t be long until you’re ready to jump into the world of fishnet feet first!
