Why You Need a Garter Belt Set
The ever-so-sexy garter belt has been around for decades. Although long ago, both men and women used garters and garter belts to serve the practical purpose of keeping their stockings up, they’re now commonly worn to seduce as a sensual, mysterious piece of lingerie. Garter belts now usually worn as part of a garter belt set.
What is a Garter Belt Set?
A full garter set is usually made up of a garter belt, a matching bra or other top, underwear, and stockings.
A garter belt’s purpose is to keep your stockings up by preventing them from slipping down while creating a sophisticated and sexy silhouette.
Many women wear garter belts in their day-to-day life to keep their stockings up, but more often, they are worn as part of a provocative garter belt set for you to wear in the bedroom to drive your partner crazy.
How to Wear a Garter Belt Set
You may have seen garter sets before and been put off, thinking they are complicated and uncomfortable. But when they are worn right, they can actually be extremely comfortable.
The top of a garter set is usually a bra, but it may be a different type of mesh top or sexy lace number. These are usually very simple to wear. It’s most common to wear underwear underneath the belt. However, if you’re wearing the garter belt for a long time, you may wish to wear your underwear on top of the belt to make it easier to go to the bathroom!
The trickiest part of putting on your lingerie garter set is attaching the garter belt to a pair of stockings. So, here’s how to wear a garter belt in 5 easy steps:
- Put the belt around your waist and make sure the straps fall down your leg.
- Fasten the hooks. These hooks are usually similar to those on a bra, so you can easily adjust them to a comfortable fit.
- Put stockings on. You can really choose any type of stocking, but garter sets are usually worn with fully fashion stockings or stockings without a silicon band.
- Attach the stockings to the garter belt using the clasps. Open the clasp by sliding the silicone nub out of the larger loop. Then, place your stocking in between the silicone nub and the large loop of the clasp. Then, slide the nub so that it fits tightly into the smaller loop.
- Finally, adjust the garter belt straps the same way you’ll adjust a bra strap.
How to Style a Garter Belt for Optimum Seduction
You can purchase a full, matching, sexy garter belt set, although you may want to mix and match with a different bra or underwear, depending on the look you’re going for.
Garter belts look incredibly sexy with a pair of thigh-high stockings that will make you irresistible. If you really want to step it up a notch, you could style it with a pair of high stilettos. Why not opt for a sultry red lipstick for a truly seductive look?
What is a Garter Skirt?
A garter skirt has the same purpose as a garter belt, to keep stockings up and create a sexy silhouette. But a garter belt skirt will usually have a lot more material than a belt and cover a larger portion of your torso.
It may also flare out at the hips to create a sexy silhouette.
This can be fabulous option if you’re trying to make your waist or stomach look slimmer. A garter belt skirt may also be a great option if want to feel more covered up.
How to Choose a High-Waisted Garter Belt
Choosing a type of garter belt to wear will vary depending on things like the length of time you’re wearing it and your body type.
It’s important you choose a garter belt that fits you well so that you feel as comfortable as possible. A high-waisted garter belt should fit on the small of your waist, not around your hips.
Certain materials are also much more comfortable than others—if you’re wearing the belt for a long time, you may want to opt for a satin or charmeuse belt rather than a lace or mesh one.
