* Lampshaded in ''Literature/TheShortestWayToHades'' by Sarah Caudwell. Selena notes that she and her friend Julia are greeted at a party by a woman wearing "[[FrenchMaidOutfit a black dress, black stockings and a little white pinafore]]." Apparently, the dress was short enough that Selena didn't need to guess that they were stockings and not tights.

* WesternAnimation/BettyBoop's garter belt that she wears on her left thigh has become part of her signature look and was often used for comedic purposes in her early cartoons (before the HaysCode interfered). Now a days, Betty officially wears a white frilly garter with a red heart design in the middle.

Expect the FemmeFatale to be dressed this way, and very likely to use the garters as a hiding place for money, concealed weapons or a flask. Also, in StockingFiller scenes, the lead actress will most frequently wear black stockings with seams running up the back of the legs to conform with RuleOfSexy (in the real world, "nude" or flesh-toned is the most popular color for hose, and seams are very rarely seen except as decorations on special occasions). Actresses in movies and shows set in the 19th and early 20th centuries will also most frequently be seen wearing black or white stockings in StockingFiller scenes, often with fancy decorations on the calves and ankles. In this case, it's TruthInTelevision due to the manufacturing and dyeing processes of the time (and social mores which prevented women from showing their legs but did wink at them flashing their ankles in flirtation or seduction).
