Stocking fetishism is a sexual fetish relating to women's stockings. Stocking fetishists may particularly find sexual partners clothed in sheer nylon or silk stockings to be sexually stimulating, or find the act of a person donning or removing a pair of stockings arousing. This can also be related to pantyhose fetishism or transvestic fetishism. Some men find it arousing to collect and wear stockings,panties and suspender belts sometimes hidden under a pair of trousers.
Additionally such fetishists may also be divided into many sub-categories relative to their attraction to certain types of stockings. Some find fishnet stockings more arousing compared to other forms of stockings, for example. Other preferences include fully-fashioned (seamed) stockings, seamless stockings, designer stockings, luxury stockings, reinforced heel and toe stockings (RHT), stay-ups etc.
