Step by Step Guide on How to Wear a Garter Belt

Let me tell you a little secret… Wearing a garter belt can help you stay in tune with your seductive side. It makes you feel sexy and stunning. But it could be frustrating if you don’t know how to wear this super hot lingerie. Don’t worry; I’m here to help. Here are tips on how to wear a garter belt.

1. Put the Garter Belt Around Your Waist

Ideally, you should be practicing with a garter belt as you read this article. It makes it easier for you to learn the process.

The thing you should do when wearing a garter belt is to put it around your waist. While on your waist, check if the straps fall on your leg. If they don’t, it means you are wearing the garter belt upside down. That’s the first mistake most women make. Once the garter belt is around your waist, you proceed to the next step.

2. Fasten the Hooks

Once you have the garter belt around your waist and the straps fall on your leg, the next step is to fasten the hooks. Sometimes, fastening the hooks can be a bit challenging. But here’s a quick tip – slide the belt over to make the back come to the front, and the front goes to the back. With this, you will see the fasteners clearly on your belly.

Adjust the belt to a fit you are comfortable with and slide to return to the previous position (That’s the front will return to the back vice versa). As a rule, don’t allow the belt to be too tight; it will make you feel uncomfortable.

3. Put Stockings On

Conventionally, you should wear your garter belt with fully fashioned stockings or stockings that don’t have a silicone band. However, women prefer wearing garter belts with thigh highs these days. Thigh highs have silicone or elastic bands at the top.

4. Fix the Garter Belt to Your Stockings

Attaching your garter belt to stockings is a bit confusing. But I will take my time to explain it to you in the simplest way you can understand. Let’s start with the stockings. Remove the silicone nub from the loop. The next thing you should do is to place your stockings’ welt between the silicone nub and the loop. The welt is the part of the stockings that you will attach to your garter belt. And it’s made with a double layer of nylon depending on the stockings you are using.

Once you are ready, shift the nub to fit into the smaller loop, repeat this process for the other clips. But if you are attaching thigh highs to your garter belt, you don’t need to attach any clip to the stockings.

5. Adjust the Strap

Just like your bra straps, you can also adjust the straps of your garter belt. Depending on what you want, you can adjust the length to be longer or shorter. For instance, if you are going to be sitting most times, it’s better to make the straps longer to make you feel comfortable. Similarly, if you are wearing it for a photo shoot, it is better to make the garter belt shorter to give you more fit. The choice is yours.

As a rule, always wear your underwear after you wear your garter belt. This makes it easier for you to use the restroom. Never wear your underwear before the garter belt. It’s a terrible experience which I don’t want anybody to have.

There you go, by now you should know how to wear a garter belt without stress. It’s easy, isn’t it? If you have any questions or contributions, don’t hesitate to drop it in the comment session.

How to Attach Thigh Highs to a Garter Belt

If you don’t want to wear your garter belt with stockings, you can use thigh highs. But it’s a bit tricky. Don’t worry; I will teach you how to do it.

Remember that your garter belt has either four or six straps hanging down, depending on the style you are wearing. These straps have a small clasp each, take note of them.

Follow the tips below to attach thigh highs to your garter belt. It’s simpler than you think;

  • Put your garter belt around your waist
  • Wear your pantyhose/stockings
  • Attached the clasps on your garter belt straps to the pantyhose/stockings
  • Adjust the straps to a comfortable fit that you like

How to Use a Garter Clip

The garter clip refers to the clip at the end of the garter belt that attaches to the stockings. It comes in two types – the loop-and-button and suspender. Most times, the suspender garter clip holds firmly and better than the loop-and-button. It doesn’t matter how thick your socks are; a suspender garter clip will always clamp them down.

Most garter clips come with an attached piece of ribbon. The ribbon rests over the clips after attaching it to stock. It helps to camouflage the garter under clothing. So, whether you are using stockings or thigh-highs to wear your garter belt, garter clips will help hold it firmly.

What is the purpose of a garter belt?

The main purpose of a garter belt is simple – It’s worn around the waist to hold up your stockings. It’s a sensual form of lingerie that men find exciting when they see you wearing it.

Mostly, women wear garter belts for two reasons – utility or seduction. If you are wearing garter belts for everyday use because they are cool and allow airflow, then you will be choosing specific garter belts. You will be selecting the ones with back adjustability, rests at your waist, metal garter clips, about four or more suspenders. The more the suspenders, the more comfortable and stable the garter belt will be.

However, if you are wearing your garter belt for seduction, that means it will be for a short while. So, anything can go. Your garter belt can be any size, rest anywhere between your waist and hips. And more importantly, the clips could be metal or plastics, etc.
