The sub-categories and degrees of pantyhose fetishism are too many to list and is in many cases combined with other fetishes or paraphilias of the fetishist and often his partner too so as to make an individual's preferences as with many other popular fetishes unique. Some people experience sexual excitement from the look or feel of articles made of silk or satin fabric.
Other preferences include fully fashioned seamed stockings, seamless stockings, designer stockings, luxury stockings, reinforced heel and toe stockings RHT , stay-ups , etc. The attraction may be to the look or feel of the material, such as lace , or how it looks on a person.
Both men's and women's underwear are also sometimes referred to as "drawers". For the style of trousers, see Knickerbockers clothing. Garter belts can be very tricky to attach to a lace welt, therefore it is much easier to start wearing garter belts with old-fashioned regular stockings that have a plain welt without any lace, designs, or silicon lining.
In Australia, men's underpants are often referred to as "undies". Typical components include an elastic waistband , a crotch panel to cover the genital area usually lined with absorbent material such as cotton , and a pair of leg openings that, like the waistband, are often made of elastic.
A man who likes to wear pantyhose may be deeply anxious and worried about being associated with homosexuality or transvestism , and as such most will endeavour to keep the fetish private, commonly hiding it from their wives or partners though some do have the ultimate trust and understanding of their partners due to such enormous fears that are invariably completely out of context with such relatively mild desires.
