What’s a suspender belt lover to do when the weather’s too hot for hosiery? Double garters! Once an old-fashioned thing that only brides still wore, the trend for strappy, elastic lingerie has brought leg garters back into style again.
There are leg garters (or thigh garters, whatever you want to call them) that hold stockings up and do away with the need for a suspender belt, such as these, these, these* and these. But that’s not what this article is about. What I’m sharing today are garter sets that let you skip the stockings but keep the suspender belt. Because sometimes you want to wear a 3-piece lingerie set even in summer!
If Instagram is anything to go by, there’s a growing trend to just wear suspender belts on their own, with the straps left flapping about. Each to their own of course, but personally I’m not a fan. I’d much rather wear a set of garters that give those straps a purpose, not to mention secure them in place so that they don’t start to annoy me as I walk about.
Here are 20 leg garter options for budgets big and small. A handful are sold individually, but most come as a pair. None of these actually need to be worn with a suspender belt by the way, but all of them can be if you want to.
Do you wear suspender belts in summer? With stockings or garters?
