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 or, for example, a fishnet bodystocking. 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 it's certainly enjoyed by the general population as well, mainly as lingerie. Part of the reason for this is that fishnet looks really sexy and creates flattering shadows that make legs look absolutely fabulous. The same goes for a fishnet body stocking!
* Fishnets are often popular at Halloween so if you are going as a sexy, well - anything, to your costume party grab some fishnet stockings and liven up your sexy costume!
