Garters and Garter belts were traditionally used as anchors around the waist to help keep stockings from falling down. Nowadays, stockings and hosiery can stay up all on their own, so garter belts get to be a lovely, seductive ornamental touch to a lingerie set. Still, you
want to be sure that your garter belt is adjusted correctly, sits nicely on your hips and feels comfortable when you wear it. Similar to bra straps, the straps on garter belts are also adjustable, so you’ll be able to choose the length that’s right for you.
