Although laddered stockings are currently on trend they may soon become extinct. Not because they will no longer be fashionable but because of a new scientific discovery - a self-healing material.

"The new material described in the journal Nature displays rubber-like behaviour. However, unlike a rubber band, once snapped, all is not lost: hold the pieces together for 15 minutes and they will knit a new bond, without the need for adhesive," according to the Telegraph.

Perhaps these science geeks don’t realize how popular the ripped and shredded trend is. Thanks to Fashionising for these hot laddered stocking photos. Stats for Self-Repairing Stockings Trending: Older & Average
