A few decades ago wearing garter belts was the norm and women didn’t think twice about how they should go about doing so. Enter the affordable and easy to wear pantyhose. These nylon hosieries really shook up the world of shear-wear for women and once they hit the scene the popularity of garter belts quickly faded away. But they never totally fizzled out.
These days when a woman wears garter belts and stockings it is usually on a more intimate level. Because of that they are typically reserved for special occasions. Because of the limited number of times that a woman will actually find herself wearing these types of hosiery they may or may not know how to go about properly wearing them. If you are one of those women fear not, it is not as hard as you might think. Here’s what you need to know:
– Try on the actual garter belt: The most important part about wearing garter belts and stockings is ensuring that your garter belt fits you properly. This is essential because you will not only want comfort but you will want the clasps to function properly as well. Before you buy a garter belt you need to actually try it on. It should fit nicely around your waist but you don’t want it to be too snug. Be sure that you will be able to easily modify the clasps in accordance with your body’s length.
– Check the clasps: The clasps of the garter belt should be strong and durable and be able to put up with a little bit of abuse if need be. Again you need to make sure that they can easily be adjusted to match your body length.
– Choose good stockings: Be sure that your stockings are as durable as your garter belt is. Going with a nicer material such as silk will often help in terms of durability. These types of stocking may cost a bit more but they can be worth their weight in gold if they last longer.
– Actually putting them on: To avoid any embarrassment later on in the ladies room, put your panties on first. Put the garter belt on and be sure that it is fit properly and that all the clasps are hanging down at about the same length. Next you will put the stockings on and pull them up as high as they will go. Now you need to attach the clasps onto the stockings and adjust them until they feel even and above all else comfortable.
There is no rule of thumb for the adjustment of the clasps on the garter belt and the actual indicator of truth is your own personal preference. Many women these days avoid wearing garter belts and stockings because they feel it is too hard to put them on. But if you start with the right garter belt and stockings the rest is practically a cake walk. It may take you a time or two of putting them on to get smooth at it, but just as with anything else, practice makes perfect.
