Sir has changed my dress code. As such, we're trying to find new items that will help us in changing some of my wardrobe toward this end.
One of them is a Garter Belt, to hold up my now winter-required Thigh Highs. I ordered one on Wish just before I left for North Carolina. When I got back, it had arrived!
It was good for a tester garment.
A few thoughts:
One, I hope I have it on right. We put the eyehooks at the back.
Two, I ended up ordering a 5X, since it said the sizes run small, and I've had problems ordering sizes online only to not be able to get into a garment before. I know I'm not a tiny human, but I am not a 5X. And I think it may be slightly large, perhaps I should have gotten a 4X.
Three, the material is very sheer, like a mesh. That's not how it looked online. While this was fun and sexy, I don't think it will hold up to everyday wear.
But, it DID keep my socks up, even through some pretty intense activity. And that's the entire point- keeping them up. The fact that they are aesthetically appealing (at least to me and Sir) is just a bonus! So this may be a viable solution. Online, I also found a straight up Garter without the belt, and that may be an option too. These things are all pricey though - the thicker thigh highs, the garters. Baby steps I suppose. These are not things easily found at the thrift store. I'll have to find a brick-and-mortar place, or a better online source.
But for now, I am excited! And I think Sir is too.
