9 thoughts on “For garter belts what type of stockings do you wear?”

  1. Any stockings. The garter fastenings grip the material so they don’t need to have holes in them. You just place the top of the stocking in between the two bits of the fastener, push the round lump bit through the hole and then down the narrow part. The material gets stuck inside the fastener and holds the stockings up.

  2. Attach clips as deep as possible into welt, otherwise you risk popping clasps. If you find those little ribbons over suspender tabs, remove them all. They only irritate, And of course panties go always on top.

  3. If you are looking for brand I wear Victoria’s Secret. I would stay away from fishnets. As other pointed out the stockings do not have holes in them to accomodate the garter belt. The garter belt clip pushes the stocking up and then clips it so they stay up.

    The girls at VS can show you how they work…I am sure that they get this request all the time.

  4. Garter belts actually attach to any type of thigh highs. Obviously the most slimming thigh highs are black… but you can make it fun by getting any color like ivory, white, pink, red etc. Some stores carry thigh highs with a really pretty lace design around the top… or a silk ribbon. Fish net thigh highs are pretty popular too but you have to have super skinny legs in order for them to be super flattering. Here is a video about how to attach your garter belt…. it might take you a few tries (it took me a while my first try! lol) So maybe it would be best to practice before the big day…. đŸ™‚ Good luck !

  5. This from a long time male wearer. I never fasten my garters really deep in the welt. That’s a sure formula for laddering the stockings, particularly if the garters are snugly fastened. Fastening my garters near the top of the welt distributes the stress of the garters evenly around the welt and helps to prevent laddering. And my garters can be fastened very snugly as I like.

  6. Theoretically, any thigh high stocking with a wide welt (the band of lace or doubled hose at the top of a stocking) can be worn with a garter belt.
    In practice, thigh highs with anti-slip grip don’t work very well, and most thigh highs are anti-slip. The thick band of no-slip silicone around the inside top of the stocking doesn’t fit into the garter clip and keeps it from closing. Check the packaging and avoid any that call themselves “stay-ups”, or which advertise extra grip.
    It can be difficult to find stockings without the ring of silicone inside the welt, especially if you’re not in a specialty store and don’t want to spend a lot of money on fully-fashioned stockings or similar. If this is the case and you’re stuck with Walmart options: try to choose a pair with the thinnest silicon for a better chance of them fitting in the garter clips, OR, buy an inexpensive pair of garter nylons, which are a style of panty hose. Instead of a control top, they have a built-in, fake garter top sewn onto the stockings. Snip off the garter top so you can wear them with your own garter belt.
    I do not recommend seamed stockings, or those with vertical patterns unless you have a garter belt with at least 6 garter clips, preferably 8, because they look poorly if they twist, which they’ll do if you only have 4 clips.
    To dress:
    1) If you’ve never worn the garter before, loosen the extender straps on each garter before putting it on.
    2) Put the garter belt on around your natural waist and straighten it. Hint: the shortest straps go in the front. Give it a tug to ensure it isn’t too loose and won’t slide down. You will not have underpants on at this time, but some women like to put the garter belt on over their camisole. Not the sexiest look, but it keeps the cami from riding up and bunching.
    3) Pull on your stockings. Ensure they are straight and not twisted.
    4) Clip the front garters on top of your thighs to the welt of your stockings.
    If you look at a garter clip under the ribbon, you’ll see they consist of a loop of wire around a round button. Slide the wire loop forward, which allows you to then lift the wire loop up, off the button. Slip the welt of your stocking between the button and the wire loop, then close the wire loop over the button, and pull it back to secure in place and trap the stocking between the loop and button.
    5) Adjust the straps you just attached. What you’re going for: when standing straight up and down, both front straps are tight enough to hold the stockings up and lie flat against you, without being so tight that they pull the stockings up. The top of the stockings should be fairly straight across, not pulled into a point, which can cause rips. Tug the straps a little to ensure they won’t pop off.
    6) Sit down or put your foot on a toilet or chair so your leg is in a 90 degree “Captain Morgan” pose.
    7) While sitting, grab the back garters, pull them over your bum to the back middle of your thigh, and clip them to the stockings.
    8) Still in this position, tighten the straps you just attached until they lay flat against the backside of you without digging in. If you make them too tight, they’ll cut into you and be uncomfortable when you sit. Too loose, and the backs will droop, but too loose is better than too tight.
    9) Stand up straight again. Ensure everything is not twisted; attach any remaining clips. Note: The back straps will be looser while you stand. Do not tighten them or you’ll be sorry when you sit down again.
    10) Pull underpants on over the stockings and garter belt.
    11) If you’re wearing a slip, put that on. This will help keep any ribbons or sticking-out bits from showing through your dress.

  7. You can also use the garter belts with pacifier clips. They’re like suspender clips but with a nylon insert. Put the garter belt on, then the stockings. Clip the front clips. slide the back of the garter belt down a few inches to give the rear straps slack. Fasten the rear straps then pull the garter belt back up to normal position. No tug of war with the rear straps!

  8. Stayups or thigh highs don’t stay up, but they almost do. With my stayups, I wear a very short strap garterbelt with only a single garter to the side and large metal clasps that can be fastened to the stocking welt. I pull the stockings up and fasten them snugly to the two garters. The stockings are up snugly all the way to my crotch and well above my crotch where they are fastened. The feeling is just wonderful. Try it!
