Fence net stockings are a nice alternative to standard fishnets, with their more open look. They look nice paired with a variety of costumes and lingerie.

extremely useful review
I love to wear stockings when I dress up for sex, and I’m always looking for a new design or color. I decided on the Fence Net Stockings by Leg Avenue for their open look and stay-up design.

The stockings come in a standard hosiery plastic package with a picture of the product on the front. The package opens easily from the bottom. Inside, the stockings are sealed in plastic with the lace tops inserted end-to-end on a plastic shape keeper.

The sizing on the package indicates one size fits most, and gives a suggested weight range of 90 to 160 pounds. I’m not exactly in that range, but I thought I’d give them a go. These stockings come in a variety of colors. I chose white – not the most adventurous color, but I have a lot of black and a lot to wear with white.

The stockings have lace tops and a reinforced toe. The lace is pretty, and about 3” wide. The actual stocking is made of fence net, a larger version of standard fishnet. The diamond openings are much larger when stretched, and the net feels thicker.

Straight out of the package and un-stretched, the stockings are about 28” long from tip to toe. They should be put on by rolling down to the toe, then unrolled up the leg. This can be a bit tricky due to the holes. I found that they went up a few inches past mid thigh.

One thing that I noticed is that, because of the wide weave, these stockings don’t support as much as standard fishnet. If you have a bit of flesh on your legs you’ll notice it coming through the holes somewhat, especially on the upper leg.

The stockings stayed in place pretty well for me, although they had a tendency to slip down after a lot of movement. They also worked well with a garter belt. The lace top made it easy to attach the garter straps so the stockings would stay in place.

The stockings are made of nylon, and feel fairly strong and rip-resistant. They should be hand washed or drip dried, or they can be washed in the gentle or hand-wash cycle in the washer. These stockings will look a bit more stretched out than standard fishnet after washing and drying due to the weave.

Fence net is a great look. I’d recommend these if you’re looking for some new hosiery and want to show a little more skin.
Follow-up commentary
These stockings have held up well to numerous washings in a garment bag and drip-drying. I typically wear these with a garter to help them stay up.

My husband really likes the open weave of these, and I'd like to get them in a few more colors.

    I know just what ya mean about flesh coming thru the holes!
  • Sammi
    It's an interesting look - but hubby doesn't mind, so I don't either Smile
  • spicywife
    I like to wear stockings when I dress up too. I'm weary of "one size" things though! We aren't all the same!
  • Sammi
    I agree - I'd like to see more sizes in hosiery, lingerie, and costumes Smile.

  • Alan & Michele
    Hmm... these look like they would go nicely with the new lingerie I just got, along with some black heels. Oh well here I go again adding yet another item to my wish list (lol).
  • Sammi
    I think you'll like them Smile

    I'm pretty thin but I've had problems with the tops of thigh highs cutting in too much. How are these at the top? And how did they hold up for the evening? Were there any tears afterward?

    Great review!
  • Sammi
    They are a little snug at the top, which helped hold them up, although a lot of movement did cause them to slip down. My legs are also a bit wide at the top - I would guess with thinner legs that they wouldn't cut in badly.

    They held up great - no tears while they were on, and none when I took them off. I think the heavier weave of the fence net helps with this. Plus I've schooled my husband never to pull or try to rip my stockings. I didn't have any problems with snagging, either.

    I've worn and washed these a few times so far, and no problems yet.

    Thanks for the comment and questions!

    Is there such a stocking that doesn't slid down at the top? I'm relatively new to stockings and my first pair was from Victoria's Secret. They look great, yes, but they slip down when I wear them. They were the appropriate size too.
  • Sammi
    I have some pairs that have a bit of elasticy-rubber type material on the backs of the tops, that truly lets them stay up without slipping.

    Yay for reinforced toes. I've heard good things about leg avenue products. Too bad about the sizing, though.

    I once had a pair from VS with a sticky type top but it still didn't help.
  • Sammi
    Reinforced toes rock Smile. I like a lot of the Leg Avenue stuff too.

    I'm not sure what brands I have with the sticky stuff, but they've worked really good for me.
  • spicywife
    Yes, my pair from VS has sticky tape top but it didn't help either.
  • Sammi
    I'll have to see if I can find the brand mine are - if I do I'll let you know Smile

    Thanks for the review. It was really helpful to know about the width of the netting and the possibility of flesh stick through. I have large thighs but I still want to try a pair. I love thigh highs and stockings they are more flattering for my body type.
