Definition - What does Industrial Net mean?

Industrial net is a type of synthetic fabric characterized by its open, criss-cross knit finish. This material is soft, stretchy, and durable. Due to its very revealing finish, it is a popular choice for sexy undergarments including tights, body stockings, and mini dresses.

Industrial net is sometimes mistaken for fishnet or fencenet, but these fabrics have smaller diamond shaped holes than industrial net.

Kinkly explains Industrial Net

Industrial net has a similar look to fishnet and fencenet, but its knit is much more open to show a greater amount of skin and to allow easy access to the body. A person wearing industrial net lingerie can be touched intimately without removing the undergarments.

People enjoy wearing industrial net lingerie to appear provocative or even slutty. For this reason, industrial net is commonly used for lingerie that’s deemed fetish wear.

The open weave of industrial net garments mean that they offer less support than items made from fishnet or fencenet. For this reason, some women with large breasts or body issues prefer not to wear industrial net lingerie.

While industrial net is strong enough to stretch over the body, it will not withstand machine washing. Industrial net lingerie should be washed by hand in cold water. Industrial net undergarments should never be ironed or bleached. After washing, industrial net items can be dried on a clothes line, away from direct sunlight and heat.
