Fishnet Pantyhose

At one time fishnets had a questionable reputation (think Gwen Verdon as Lola in Damn Yankees). They've come a long way in the past 50 or so years. While they can still come off as very provocative -especially the wider nets in black, they can definitely complement an outfit, whether worn with boots or heels, little black dress or formal wear. Fishnet tights can also be layered. For example, you can wear nude fishnets over nude/beige hosiery or black over black for a textured look. You can also be daring and go for more contrast. Here we have Cette (pronounced “set”) Jamaica Fishnet Pantyhose, which are finer net, Belgium made tights. These are fishnet-to-the waist. I point that out because we get questions from time to time from costume designers and the like who need fishnets for wear with leotard-type outfits.

Carnival Merry Widow

 Although Carnival doesn't refer to this as a Merry Widow (they call it a brasselette, as it's a combination of a bra and corselette), it's nearly identical to the original Warner's Merry Widow from the 50's/60's (we had one for a side by side comparison).  It's a classic front zip curve-maker with garters. This low back strapless comes in black or white, depending on if you're naughty or nice!
