Although fishnet stockings have been through many different stages in there ever growing popularity. At the beginning of fishnet stockings, they were seen for the most part as having intense desirability, which was made famous by showgirls and flappers in the 1920s because fishnet stockings allowed flappers to dance and move more freely. Fishnet stockings then took a different approach in the 1950s, by becoming associated with pin-up girls. Although 20 years on in the 70s; fishnet stockings were taken over by the Punk and Goth scene, which they added extra holes and tears to subvert the mainstream idea of proper women’s clothing. Fast forward to the present and fishnet stockings and tights have become a popular fashion trend around the world from supermodels to the girl next door all wearing fishnets in their own way - showcasing a new era of sensuality for femininity.
