Garter belts are one of the most important types of lingerie in the entire industry. You may also know then by suspender belts, and it's a real essential for so many different people and for so many different looks. So what is a garter belt and why is it necessary for your outfits? Let's take a look at just how great suspender belts can be and what they bring to your outfit.
Why Do I Need A Garter Belt?
A suspender belt is a vital item to have for one reason, if you like wearing stockings. Hold ups are items of legwear that stay up by themselves, but stockings are hosiery designs that end at the thigh without any silicone for holding them up. You need to purchase a suspender belt to clip onto your stocking tops so you can hold them up, otherwise they will slip down. This makes a garter belt a thoroughly practical item, but is it all about the practicality? No, there's plenty of other reasons to get hold of one of these wonderful items of lingerie. Let's take a look at a few of these.
What Makes A Suspender Belt So Versatile?
Apart from the necessary and practical elements, there is the beauty of these wonderful items. When you have something that starts out as being purely practical, the designers often want to add something gorgeous to it, to elevate it from the ordinary and give it something new and wonderful. The magnificent variety of design in the world of garter belts is extraordinary. Because they don't need to be redesigned or thought out afresh each season, this leaves all the efforts and time of lingerie designers free to go into the fashion elements of a suspender belt. Fashion suspender belts are as varied as any other type of clothing, maybe even more than others. This means you can have a classic black lace suspender belt or a jewel green garter belt, or a more abstract patterned one, or something really boundary pushing. The sky is the limit with these types of accessories.
Which Garter Belt Should I Go For?
There are as many different styles of garter as their are tastes in fashion. The best thing you can do is go for something that suits your own personal style or matches the colour of stockings you are going for. But then again, you do need to make one important decision about your garter belts.
