Garter Belts: What Are The Best Garters & How To Use Them?
Garter belts make for excellent addition to already sexy lingerie, and I love garter belts. 💋🔞
I am a man, I love how they look, how feminine my lady becomes — did, I mention, they are sexy? 👠
In this guide I've collected all the best advice on garter belts and the best garter belts for you to choose from.
The thing is that it's hard to buy high-quality garter belt if you are new to this.
The first one I got for my girl looked great, but it was constantly falling down.
But you won't have this problem, because you're here!
Just so there is no confusion, wanted to clarify…
If you want to wear a garter belt, you'll need:
- garter belt
In this guide we'll just focus on garter belts (oh well, also on standalone garters a bit).
What are Garter Belts?
According to wikipedia definition:
“Garters are articles of clothing: narrow bands of fabric fastened about the leg, used to keep up stockings, and sometimes socks.
In the eighteenth to twentieth centuries, they were tied just below the knee, where the leg is most slender, to keep the stocking from slipping.
The advent of elastic has made them less necessary from this functional standpoint, although they are still often worn for fashion.”
How Do You Go About Buying A High-Quality Garter Belt?
#1 — Get high quality clips with adjustability option
As a general rule — the more clips the belts has the better it will hold the stockings.
If you want a super secure option, look for three clips for each leg.
If you plan to use garter belts regularly and want them to last, look for metal and adjustable clips.
Plastic ones will break.
And if you cannot adjust them, then again you can run into the problems.
#2 — Look For Sturdy, Stretchy Fabric
It really depends what kind of materials you enjoy having on your skin, but other than that always check the reviews of how sturdy the belt is.
#3 — Make Sure You Get The Sizing Right
Ideally you could buy garter belt in your local lingerie store, but not always you'll be able to find the one you like.
If you buy anything online, make sure you talk to customer support to be 99% sure that the size is right.
If you thought that bra sizing is confusing, you don't have an idea how challenging garter belt measurements can be.
Make sure you've got a good flexible tape measurer that's accurate.
#4 — You Get What You Pay For
If you want to buy a garter belt, please buy a quality one or don't buy one at all.
Cheap ones will just disappoint and break.
Look for metal snaps, the belt that could be used as every day wear — it will last you for years!
“Definitely don’t get cheap lingerie garter belts.
I wore them to work once, snapped whilst I was walking, stocking fell down constantly. Had to tie the bugger to me, which bulged under the dress.
Definitely invest in ‘everyday wear’ ones.”

Final Tips on How To Wear Garter Belt From Other Women:
If you never wore one…especially for kinky evenings, it helps to get some advice from more experienced women, doesn't it?
Here are the best tips on how to wear garter belt correctly for different times:
“I usually put my thong over the garter so my boyfriend can take it off or if he’s feeling frisky, he’ll just cut it off. “
“Pro tip: If you are using stockings with it, clip the stockings to the garter first, then put it on.
10x easier. Trust me.”
“Go for a garter belt that has a clasp/clip instead of elastic at the waist!”
“And I just always wear my underwear over my garter, for sex and also just out in the world.
I do the same thing with crotchless tights.
It makes it SO EASY to go to the bathroom since you don’t have to fuck with your stockings at all.
Plus the same is true for sex, it’s way easy to take them off (and easier/more comfortable to just push them to the side) if they’re over the top instead of tangled underneath the straps.
So long as you match your underwear to your garter it looks normal and sexy to have them over the top.
It's good even if it's just complimentary colors.
I usually get black garters since I can pair any color sexy underwear with them and it still looks dope.
Plus, most garter belts sit around your waist above your hips — so higher than your underwear does — which creates a sexy layered look that totally works with wearing the underwear on top.”
“I put my thong over the top of everything so I can take it off and keep my garter and tights on. “
“If I am wearing the garter for function though, like under professional dress, I usually put it under the garter.”
“I love wearing a garter belt and stockings. “
“I feel so sexy and feminine knowing what I’m wearing underneath.
I wear my panties over the garter belt.
It’s much more convenient for when nature calls.
It’s especially convenient for when we’re ready for him to enter inside me and make me his.
He just loves the feel of my stocking covered legs wrapped around him as he’s giving me his hard manhood.”
“Proper way to wear a garter belt.”
“For daily wear and to work, over the panties.
For bedroom fun, the garters must go on first and worn under or invest in some panties or g-string with ties on the side or open beneath.
I feel silly pulling up silky panties over garters, so I found some a few nice lacey pair of side-ties at JCPenney.
Pull the strings and they magically drop to the floor, it’s an instant party.”
Oh and I'm sure this video will help even more to see how to use them for different cases:
“Just be warned that many of the garter belts that you can buy will be for show only. “
“They simply won’t be strong or supportive or comfortable enough to wear for any length or time or during “normal” day-to-day activities.
If it’s just dinner, some might work, they might not.
The “old fashioned” six clasp garter belts were used because they actually worked the best.
I’d suggest that you purchase well in advance of having dinner and have a test run.
Worst comes to the worst (and believe me it’s still pretty damn high scoring) you wear normal underwear to dinner, excuse yourself to the bathroom when you get home, and put the lingerie on.”
