Hot Fishnet Stockings For Men

Updated on October 13, 2009

Just because the temperatures are rising, it doesn't mean that you have to abandon wearing sexy stockings. Men can wear stockings all year around if they put just a little thought into the types of stockings they are wearing. This is not a time for digging out your thick opaque stockings that seal you up like a tightly wrapped meat product, this is the time for going lightweight and sexy with fishnet stockings.

Fishnets were just made for sultry summer nights. Unlike opaques, which may cause you to sweat uncomfortably, fishnet stockings have enough aeration to barely affect your temperature levels. Before you groan boredly and think to yourself that one pair of fishnets is very like another, think again, fishnets have been undergoing a revolution in the past few years, and there are now a wide range of fishnets to choose from.

Diamond Fishnets are the classic fishnet, and most likely the first ones to leap to mind when the phrase "fishnet stockings" is heard. The diamond can be cut large, medium, or small, and each different type of fishnet stocking will produce a different look. Large diamonds are notoriously naughty, whereas a smaller diamond hints at mischief whilst still retaining an air of propriety.

Colored Fishnets

Fishnets also come in a wide range of colors, so if you're dressing brightly this season, don't despair about having to wear conservative black stockings. This may seem unimportant, say, for a man who wears lingerie under his clothes but as we all know, a large part of wearing women's lingerie is knowing that the items adorning ones body are delightfully sexy. An unseen pair of naughty pantyhose can provide a thrill for the man wearing them, even if those around him have no idea he has them on.

Spiderweb Fishnets

Feeling a little Gothic? Try spiderweb fishnets. These make a nice change from ordinary fishnets, and are still rather cool to wear on the hottest of days.

Adorned Fishnets

Fishnets are no longer always the simple stockings they once were. It is now possible for a man to come by all manner of ornamentation on his fishnets, from bows to fancy seams.

If you are a creative type of fellow, then you can even devise your own ornamentation to match various outfits or themes.

Thigh Highs

Thigh high stockings are another excellent option if you are a man who feels the heat. Unlike full length stockings, which are notorious for trapping heat and moisture in the gusset and giving the wearer a hellish time, thigh high stockings sit nicely on your thigh, giving the panty region freedom to breathe, an essential on hot days.

Keep in mind too, thigh highs are generally much more sexy and exotic than their full length counterparts, and you can team them up with a suspender belt for a hot look on a hot night without consigning yourself to an evening carrying around your own personal sauna in your pants.

      Personally, I think a knee length skirt and stockings can look amazing on a man. I don't like the idea of chunky guy sandals at all, in the way of footwear, perhaps something nice and leather and styled in the Italian tradition, slick and smooth with a hint of point to the toe.

      Hope, a serious question for you: For a fella, what would you pair stockings with?

      I have a self-imposed rule ("It's more a guideline, really") about women's wear, which I call 'the rule of one.' It says to wear only one (visible) ladieswear item at a time. Thus, if I wear a skirt, then I wear Oxford shoes. If I wear high heels, then I wear slacks and a sport coat.

      It is my opinion - my taste only - that deviating too far from this, say to a knee-length skirt, heels, and nude hose, pushes other people's buttons too hard, and just makes me look like a mustachioed failure at crossdressing.

      Oh yes, I'd love to change society in this way, and I shall continue to press the frontiers to this end! - But that's another essay...

      So, given the reality of our society, what would you recommend a fella pair his tights with? Shorts? Chunky Guy Sandals?

      Seriously interested in your thoughts on this matter.

      My wife loves me wearing toe polish. She picks the color and applies it every week. She happened to mention fishnets to wear with my polish this Winter and then going shoe shopping.I'm a bit worried about that but she's determined.

      What's to say? I am sick of the world looking at men as some dumb brute, that is only good for making money and drinking beer and getting into trouble. Now don't get me wrong, I love being a male. But I'm also like to escape the stressful life that is handed most males. I work hard, raised my family and did all the right things or so the world has made of the rules. But I have also always like the escape part of slipping into something soft, lacy, and sexually provocative, and let's face it strictly taboo, in most western cultures. I enjoy most lingerie, garters, stockings and yes even some very fem lingerie. Baby dolls, boy cut panties, sheer robes and gowns. Put me in some cute little ruffles anklets, a pair of lacy boy cut panties, and one of my many pairs of Mary Jane heels and I'm a happy horny male. My GF agrees, men in lingerie is just plain hot and sexy.

      Trevor - I would let her know, or you may have a divorce on your hands. If you can not see yourself not wearing nylons, then you might want to start looking for a woman who likes a man in nylons. they are out there.

      I am a straight guy who enjoys wearing nylon socks and nylon thigh highs. I have a problem though, my fiance wouldn't understand if I wore them, she said it would be a freezing day in hell if she would stay with a man wearing such things. I still have these items, but secretly put them on when she's not around,. How do I handle this situation so we both can be happy???

      Because men wearing stocks, heels, skirts, etc. is so close to the genre of crossdressing, it will never be excepted as common masculine fashion.

      The only way to make this acceptable fashion is if crossdressers were shunned by the straight, masculine man who was trying to make skirts, heels, and hosiery apart of masculine mens fashion. (I hope that made sense.)

      Unfortunately, people will always stereotype people and because crossdressers have always popped there 5 o'clock shadowed head in conversations such as these; people will always put the real masculine clothing revolutionaries with the flaming crossdressers.

      It's a sick sad world we live in.

      Who says we neeed permission to wear stockings and pantyhose if I feel that I am comfortable wearing them the to hell with all the bigots who think its wrong, you probably find they cross dress when their wives or boyfriends have gone out.

      Dear Kelley Eidem,

      If you think 'allow' in the sense I used it means 'make legal', then let me draw your attention to the fact that even though words often have multiple meanings, 'allow' is not a synonym for 'legalize'. I also didn't say we 'need' to allow men to wear stockings at all. Did you actually read any of this before you left the evidence of your ignorance in a public place?

      Allow me to also note (See how that works? The English language is marvelously fluid and beautiful when you're not limply trying to pick holes where there are none to pick), that this page, and others like it, are read by literally thousands of men who do like this sort of thing. It is written for them, and whilst you are free of course, to read it, it's probably a waste of your time given that you've already decided you don't enjoy wearing stockings (if you're male) or don't like men wearing stockings (if you're female and like to make men miserable by telling them what they should wear.)

      Are you also in the habit of perhaps wandering into gardening centers and commenting on the way you hate plants? Or perhaps going to the zoo and expounding as to how much you dislike animals?

      My, what a busy wo/man you must be.

      A big no thanks.

      There is no law that prevents men from wearing fishnet stockings, so it's not clear to me why you would assert that we need to "allow" others to do it.

      No Drama Intended. I think everyone should feel free to do as they please as long as it does not cause someone else harm. I like to wear boxers and I sure do not care what anyone else thinks. I meant it when I said YOU GO GUY! Enjoy your life. Bless you for it too!

      Oh you two, quit being so dramatic ;) Many a man has worn tights throughout history, it is only recentlly that they were delineated as being female only pieces of attire. Who really cares what people wear if it makes them happy? And why should playing dress up end when you hit puberty? It's fun and men and women both enjoy it, if only we could allow people these little freedoms in their own personal lives, we might be more free as a whole.

      My vision takes me to places that even freak me a little. Makes me shiver to think about what my imagination is capable of.... AHHH, but it is all good! What harm is a little imagination? Without it we would not have this Internet system we all utilize, amongst so many other inventions......... You Go Guy.
