Garter belts

topic posted Fri, May 12, 2006 - 1:07 PM by  Unsubscribed
I like thigh highs, let me just make that clear. I wear the sock type thigh highs more the the nylon type.

Now my thighs aren't all that toned, they do that fan over the top thing, & the stockings roll. I considered using a garter belt to keep them up but it's a pain in the butt. The one I have has those flimsy little flat metal & plastic slides- a nightmare for someone with fine motor problems.

My questions are, what kind of different garter belt claspss have you come across? Are there any off the rack with easy to use clips or am I going to have to go with custom?

    i generally avoid garter belts and go with sock garters instead. They do squeeze your legs a little bit, but they're generally not as annoying, and there are some really cool sock garters out there - i think i posted about that on this tribe not too long ago. You could get some with ankhs, or spiders, or little nursey crosses and hearts! :D

    I second the sock garters idea. That's usually what I use.

    There are some places that sell metal clamp garter belts. They're considerably more pricey ($30 is the cheapest I've seen), but I'm just dying to get a pair for myself.

      Those metal clamps are nice. I really dislike the plastic ones. I usually have to get someone else to do the plastic back garters. I go to the club and find a friend to hitch me up.

          well, you know what they say: A friend in need is a friend in deed.

            A freind with weed is better,
            A friend with breasts and all the rest,
            A freind who's dressed in leather."

                :runrunrun: :HUG: Mary! :-3

                Yeah, Pure Morning is a wonderful song. Like all good proto-emo songs, it makes me want to lay in bed all day and zap bugs with an experimental raygun. :P

                  This thread is from a long while ago, I realize, but maybe someone can clear this up for me:
                  What is the difference between garter belts and sock garters? I have heaps of garter belts that I bought on clearance, but have never heard of a sock garter before. Huh(?).
                  • This is the maximum depth. Additional responses will not be threaded.

                    A sock garter is a little strap that goes around the top of your sock. Some are meant to have the sock rolled down over them to hide the garter and form a cuff, while others are decorative as well as functional and are meant to be seen.

    i really like using stay-ups, fredericks of hollywood does a really good job of providing godd sizing options. i got a garter belt there too, but i do need help from my date to put the clips on.

    another thing i did once was tie my stockings up with chenille yarn. i made a knot in the top of the stocking then tied the yarn around the knot. the other end of the yarn i tied to my panties. it worked. you could do something like that with ribbon, and maybe a garter belt with detachable garters.

    Any popular lacy lingerie type of garter belt are really not made for keeping stocking up in the course of night out.
    and thigh highs are NOT for garter belts... stocking has to create a tention that stretches the garter clip part...
    the easiest stocking you can find are stretchy ones from Leg Avenue.. you can buy them in most trashy lingerie places.
    I bought my 6 garter garterbelt with rubber and metal clips at Foxy Lady in San Francisco. Also Secret in Lace carries very nice selection of practical garter belts and classic nylons

    I know that once-upon-a-time they used to make garter belts with metal alligator clamps. I have no idea if you can still find a place that makes them like that but I bet you could find similar fasteners at a local craft store and it should be pretty simple to add them to a standard garter belt.
    Just a thought.
