The suspender belt is an ingenious piece of lingerie, complementing and enhancing the female form and accentuating your curves. Adding a suspender belt to your favourite balcony bra and thong can make you feel empowered and desired.
This timeless lingerie piece is more than just an accessory, so we have answered some of your most frequently asked questions, helping you to transition from suspender belt novice to suspender belt connoisseur in no time.
What is a suspender belt and what is its purpose?
A suspender belt (also known as a garter belt) is designed to keep your stockings from slipping whilst creating an alluring silhouette and gives a polished look to your lingerie set. The suspender is clasped from the bottom of the garter belt to the top centimetre of your stockings, securing the fit snugly around the upper thigh. As well as being practical, a suspender belt is a highly decorative piece and comes in many different designs.
How do I wear my suspender belt?
Just like a well-fitted bra, your suspenders should have just as an exquisite fit. If the suspender belt is too loose or too snug it will do a poor job of supporting your luxury stockings. A suspender with a belt too tight will cause discomfort after extended wear. Although often presented with exquisite silk panties or thongs worn underneath the garter belt, for ease of functionality some women prefer to wear their briefs over the suspender belt.
Here is a step-by-step guide on how to wear your suspender belt:
- Your suspender belt needs to sit on your natural waist (the narrowest part of your torso).
- Secure your suspender belt at the back with the hook and eye.
- Use the silicone clip on your suspender straps to clip the top of your stockings in place.
- Adjust the straps so there is enough tension to hold your stockings securely and snugly in place.
For what occasion should I wear my suspender belt?
The suspender is a lingerie item that can simply be worn anywhere. Rather than a one off occasion, even if heading to the office everyday, the gentle tug of suspenders under a smart fitted pencil skirt or trousers will remind you of the small indulgences in life. Make like Kathryn Kemp-Griffin (author of Paris Undressed: The Secrets of French Lingerie) and wear your suspenders underneath your jeans to feel sensationally glamorous appeal.
