They can be hidden under clothes to give the appearance of tights, which makes them ideal for any occasion or can make an amazing impact for a special occasion.

Suspender Belts can be a fantastic alternative to tights or hold ups, giving a smooth finish under clothes hiding a special secret for the wearer only or delivering a perfect intimate surprise.

Many woman who wear stockings and a suspender belt rather than tights choose this look because of the way it makes them feel. Lindy Gallagher recently told The Mail Online that wearing Stockings and a Suspender Belt under her everyday clothes makes her feel younger!

The 54 year old estate agent says that wearing stockings is empowering and rebellious, acting as an ‘anti-ageing weapon’. The feminine and sexy appearance is great for those who have a set uniform for work, it can make them feel pretty even in drab clothes.

Finding stockings is easy and there are many styles to choose however it is more difficult to choose a garter belt that will best suit you and your shape. There are a few things to consider before making a decision on your purchase.

Firstly where will your belt sit? The waist is generally considered best for practicality and to hold everything in place.  Measure at the waist to avoid having to readjust it constantly and ensure that it sits comfortably. Some wearers (particularly for a bedroom look!) prefer a belt that sits on the hips – stretch styles are especially popular for this look as they hug the figure and don’t dig in.


Most straps can be adjusted with sliders to make the distance between the top and the stocking far shorter – the shorter the distance between the stockings and the suspender belt itself the better the hold will be. Suspender belts generally have 4 or 6 straps but can have even more! Some wears have a preference to metal or plastic clips. Plastic clips tend to be cheaper and also are kinder to stockings, where as metals clips offer a more vintage, retro finish.


There are a variety of choices to suit everyone’s needs. Vintage lovers are drawn to seamed stockings, these are a classic sexy look and come in a range of colours! There is also sheer, opaque, luxury or shiny stockings, which are ideal for everyday, match with a pencil skirt and blouse for a sophisticated look.
