The Fishnet Stocking:
“In the field of textiles, fishnet is a material with an open, diamond shaped knit. Fishnet is most often used as a material for stockings, tights or bodystockings.
Fishnet is available in a multitude of colors, though most often sported in traditional matte black. Fishnet is commonly worn on the legs and arms by practitioners of goth and punk fashion, but is also commonly worn in mainstream as a fashion statement.
It is generally considered to be a sexy garment, and may be a component of sexual fetishism.”
Of course they’re considered to be a component of sexual fetishism! Dang fools at Wikipedia don’t have a clue what they’re talking about half the time.
