Garter Belts

A garter belt is a piece of lingerie that’s designed to keep your stockings up. It sits somewhere between your waist and hipbones, and has adjustable elastic straps with tabs that grip the stocking tops. You don’t need to wear one with stay-ups (and shouldn’t, in fact, since the garter tabs can damage the silicone that makes those stick). Most garter belts have either 4 or 6 straps, with 6 being preferable for all-day wear since it’s a little more secure.
