The Garter Come Back

Garter belts are having a moment! This vintage style is making a come back due to the unique style and sex appeal. Garter belts and stockings have become a secret love for people of all ages! 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.

DeepLaceSuspenderBelt-Plus Sized-GlamShot

The FIT

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.

The STRAPS

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.

The STOCKINGS

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.

The RANGE

Miss Naughty have a sexy and comfortable lace or satin style that is the perfect for intimate occasions. These suspender belts have plastic clips and a hook and eye fastening at the back for a comfortable and easy wear. The Miss Naughty range is available in plus sizes up to XXXL.

Furthermore, the Silky Suspender Belt is discreet and affordable for all daywear. The Dreamgirl Suspender Belt has short straps for a strong hold, meaning that it can be worn for long periods of time without the need for readjusting. Including a bondage design, this belt is great for surprising that special someone!

Match your garter belt with the perfect stockings for you from the latest fashion styles to sheer, opaque or shiny stockings and seams. There are also luxury choices, fishnets, plain top and cheaper options, for those who would prefer to spend a little less.

Fishnets : The Must Have Trend!

Fishnets are BACK IN STYLE! For many Fishnets are a love or hate style but recently this classic hosiery look has most definitely been feeling the love. They’re enjoying a moment in the spotlight, becoming a popular choice for woman’s fashion from tights and socks to full body stockings!

Screen Shot 2017-02-16 at 16.37.13.pngA staple for the runway this season and loved by fashpack and celebrities, fishnets offer an  easy way to make a plain outfit visually striking and ultimately sexy. Walking right off the catwalk into super hip street style, the fishnet look has been adapted to suit a whole range of looks. Kendall, Gigi and more of fashions PYT’s have been sporting nets under denim look that, aside from highlighting their model figure, adds a sexy rebel edge to ripped jeans.

The full body fishnet is a bold look, which can give an elegant edge to your day-to-day wear or a quirky, rock and roll feel to casual outfits. The key, as with many fashion styles, is to keep it simple. Less is more.. so the less you show, the more effective. Think an inch above your jeans waistband or just the neck and calves under a wrap dress – as seen on runway below.

 

Of course, fishnets will always have a hot, sexy finish and are the perfect addition to evening wear, giving your LBD some extra vavavoom. If you’ve ever shied away from adding sassy nets to your party looks before, now is the chance to get them out! Seen below on Kendall Jenner, who added fishnet hold ups to her party frock.

Spotted on the catwalk at Jenny Peckham who added nude medium nets to give her feminine satin and fur designs some grit. Whilst Philip Lim added black oversized net tops for texture and pattern to earthy tones.

 

Fishnet’s themselves are now available in a huge range of designs from small micronets to large diamond patterns, in classic black, delicate nudes, crazy neons or sassy red.

Nude fishnets are particularly popular for pop icons such as Beyonce, Katy Perry and Little Mix who want the leg perfecting finish of hosiery with the cool and quirky finish of fishnets rather than sheer pantyhose.

For the classic fishnet look we’d recommend Jonathan Aston Fishnet Tights or Pamela Mann Nets which are available up to XXXL. For the high fashion wide net try Trasparenze’s new season Edera Fishnet Tights which are available in Nude or Black or Gipsy’s Medium Fishnet Tights.

If you’re feeling brave, Miss O’s fishnet Bodystocking is beautifully soft with lovely details such as finger loops.

Be bold, be brave, be bad – Fishnets are catch of the day, you don’t want to be seen without them!
