* Fishnets (usually worn as tights rather than stockings) were almost mandatory uniform for a lead actress in a song-and-dance scene in musicals during the GoldenAgeOfHollywood. Some notable examples are Jane Russell in ''Son of Paleface'' and
''GentlemenPreferBlondes'', Marilyn Monroe in ''Bus Stop'' (where her fishnets were tattered to reinforce her image as a down-on-her-luck showgirl), Kay Kendall, Mitzi Gaynor and Taina Elg in ''Les Girls'', and Mitzi Gaynor, Cyd Charisse, Vera-Ellen, Leslie Caron or just about any other movie star particularly skilled as a dancer in a movie in which they exercised said skill.

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.

When you see a Stocking Filler scene in a PeriodPiece, check what kind of garter the actress is wearing to see if the costume department has been [[ShownTheirWork doing their research work properly]]. Before the late 19th century, stockings were customarily held up by round garters, ribbons of various materials, or even simply rolled up at or above the knee. Garter straps (also often called suspender straps) were introduced as attachments to corsets during [[VictorianBritain the Victorian Era]], and garter belts in the modern sense came along during TheRoaringTwenties as skirts got shorter and corsets fell out of fashion. Along with pantyhose, stockings with special elastic bands at the thighs were introduced during the 1960's. Also, thigh-length stockings were fairly uncommon before the late 19th century; most stockings were knee-length or extended just a couple of inches above the knee.

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).
