Suspender Belts

A GUIDE TO SUSPENDER BELTS

Wearing a suspender belt (or a garter belt, as they can be known) and stockings is one of life’s simple pleasures. In everyday life, rocking some high-quality lingerie can turn anything – whether it’s a day at work, a lunch with friends, or a steamy date – into a luxurious, glamorous experience! It may seem daunting at first, but knowing how to wear a lingerie classic like a black suspender belt and stockings can boost your confidence and make any day special.

There is a huge variety in the world of suspenders; from a stunning bridal white suspender belt to foxy red satin suspender belts for a hot night with your lover, there is something to perfectly match your desires. Depending on whether you’re looking for day-to-day wear or a sexy treat; a modern slim belt or a retro wide belt; you might have very different preferences in your lingerie selection. For day-to-day lingerie, a high waist wide suspender belt is your best option, as it will better hold up your stockings, keeping them firmly in place and create a smooth line under clothing. Narrow suspender belts can be less strong at holding up your hosiery, but their modern, sexy vibe means that they are a great piece of boudoir lingerie. Whichever style you choose, suspender belts look seriously seductive holding up your stockings and see you through the working day before enticing your luscious lover.

HOW TO WEAR A SUSPENDER BELT

The first step is to rocking your suspender belt and stockings is to decide whether the suspender belt is going under or over your knickers. If you’re wearing your suspender belt during the day-to-day, it might be more practical to wear the knickers over the belt, so that a trip to the bathroom isn’t a troublesome affair! But if you’re planning to wear your suspenders for a short time, and want to make sure the look is extra hot, then the sleeker option is to go French and wear your suspender belt over your knickers.

The most important thing when wearing stockings and suspenders, as with any hosiery and underwear, is that they feel comfortable and secure. It is super sexy to meet your date wearing suspenders, but it might just kill the mood when your stockings are creased as your suspender belt has become loose and fallen down. A suspender belt has two main jobs: to look sexy as hell, and to hold up your stockings. Once you’ve picked out your beautiful suspender belt from Bedtime Flirt, you’ve ticked the first box. Now all you have to do is make sure that you fit the suspender belt correctly so that it holds up your stockings all day or night long and keeps you feeling your glamorous, sexy vibe.

 

HOW TO ATTACH YOUR SUSPENDER BELT TO YOUR STOCKINGS

Attaching the stockings to your suspender belt can be a little tricky at first, but practice makes perfect! After deciding how you want to style out your suspender belt, now is the time to clip in the stockings and complete your sexy look. Different suspender belts have varying numbers of clips; whereas some of us are looking for a sleeker option, others need the security of several clips! The majority of garter belts have 4 clips but if you’re wearing your lingerie all day, a 6-strap suspender belt will provide you with more comfort, as the extra suspender straps ensure that your stockings stay securely in place. For shorter boudoir wear, fewer suspenders are just fine and look extra sexy.

The suspender strap is attached to the bottom of your belt, and clips onto the top 1cm of your stockings so that it fits securely around the upper thigh. You can attach your stockings either standing up or sitting down, but the easiest way to clip in your stockings is to clip them in at the front first before putting your foot on a chair to more easily reach the back clips. If you’re wearing seamed stockings, you might prefer to clip the stockings in the suspender belt before putting them on – so that you can perfectly line up the seam with the clips – and then put on your suspenders and stockings like tights. It doesn’t matter whether you prefer to attach the stockings before putting the belt on – how you feel when you wear your suspender belt is the important thing.

Ideally, your suspender belt should have a snug but comfortable fit around your waist for everyday wear as this will prevent it sliding down causing your stockings to wrinkle and metal clasps will add that extra security, sometimes you may find it easier to lengthen the straps to attach the stockings first then tighten the adjusters to your desired fit. Adjustability is key to holding up your hosiery and most styles feature adjustable straps and back hooks.

Remember when wearing a suspender belt make sure that you don’t attach hold-up stockings. Hold-ups have a rim of silicone elastic, which is too thick for the suspender belt clips. If you want to feel your fantasy in a suspender belt, make sure to have regular stockings so that you can make the most of the experience (and do it again!).

When you have your stockings securely attached, take time to adjust the suspender straps so that the stockings are taught and un-creased, but without putting too much tension on them! The most important step of putting on your lingerie garments is to take a minute before you leave the house to check that everything is comfortable and secure, and to admire your sexy glam in the mirror!

WHERE YOUR SUSPENDER BELT SHOULD SIT

Where your belt should sit on your body depends slightly on which style of suspender belt you choose. If you opt for the more retro, wider suspender belt, then it should sit snugly around your waist – the smallest part of the torso – and comfortably cover your abdomen. If you prefer the more modern, narrow suspender belt, then they should sit closer to your hips or lower abdomen and cover only a small area of your torso. Whichever style you go for, your suspender belt should complement your feminine curves and accentuate your body, so make sure that it fits snugly, but comfortably.

Not sure about which style would suit your needs best? Generally, a wider suspender belt is recommended for longer wear, as they are more sturdy and secure, so won’t see your stockings drop an inch! If you’re looking for more of a boudoir piece, then something like a delicate lace suspender belt will do the job just fine and will be a perfect choice for a steamy night of seduction.

The suspenders themselves hang below the bottom of the belt and attach to the very top of the stockings. They should sit at the top of your thigh so that they don’t show under your hemline and make your stockings look beautifully smooth and silky.
