Fishnet, we’re all familiar with. Leggings – now that’s a different story. What’s the difference between leggings and tights, or between leggings and stockings? Are you sure you know? And why would anyone want leggings made out of fishnets? Let’s explore both of these areas.
First let’s discuss exactly what leggings are. Leggings go from the waist to the ankles and are generally made out of a heavier fabric. They can be worn in place of trousers and are often paired with tops or skirts. Tights, on the other hand (or leg) are made of a variety of different fabrics and they fully cover the feet. And lastly we have stockings, which also cover the feet but do not extend fully up to the waist. Stockings are generally made of more sheer fabric and need to be held up by suspenders or garters. Although similar in nature, all three items have very different characteristics.
Now that we’ve cleared up that mystery, let’s move on to the fishnet. Everyone knows the diamond-shaped pattern, and if you’re reading this article I’ll wager you’re also familiar with fishnet stockings, gloves, tops and other traditional items. Given our description of leggings above, it’s clear that this see-through material would not usually be considered a ‘heavier’ fabric for making leggings, which can be worn in place of trousers. So what have learned here? Wearing fishnet leggings instead of trousers will truly give everyone a sexy eyeful!
So if you’re feeling bold and beautiful enough to wear a pair of see-through trousers, then fishnet leggings are the perfect choice for you. There are a variety of fabulous designs to choose from that can be as bold or as daring as you like.
