Esther Rantzen: Women find fishnet tights exotic
TV personality Esther Rantzen has stated that older women like fishnet stockings as they remind them of their youth.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, the 68-year-old, who has recently published a guide to "growing old disgracefully", said that women see fishnet hosiery as "exotic and slightly wicked".

Ms Rantzen added that fishnet tights are supposed to disguise a number of figure flaws and flatter pins of any shape or size.

"So even the baggiest knees can be disguised by a latticework of black elastic," she continued.

However, she warned that once a women approaches 50 she should be wary of wearing fishnet stockings, or at least be careful what clothes they are teamed with.

Esther added that she has only recently discarded her own fishnet hosiery.

Meanwhile, it has recently been reported that fishnets teamed with opaque tights is a hot fashion trend.

USA Today remarked that Gossip Girl star Blake Lively is often seen sporting coloured tights with contrasting stockings, while writing for online resource Propeller, an author known as Cindy asserted that the trend is popular among fashion-forward individuals.
