attached to hose/stockings (and which are also not those ruffled-wedding-gimmicky ones) exist? (I may not be using the correct vocab to express this, so ... more inside if this is unclear.)
I'm wearing this bridal bustier
under my wedding dress, which as you can see has garter straps. They are detachable, but I would like to use them to help keep the torso of the bustier stretched out (so it doesn't pull up/rumple when I sit or move about). However, I'm going bare-legged and won't have hose to attach the straps to.
I know that the term "garter" usually refers to either the actual straps trailing from a garter belt that clips to your hose, or those "keepsake" ruffled fabric bands
that women sometimes wear on one thigh beneath their wedding dresses. The keepsakes, uh, don't seem like they're for practical use (loose elastic made to be pulled off with groom's teeth = not gonna hold anything up or down).
I'd like to find a version of those thigh garters loops that are discreet and slim (not bedazzled/ruffled) and that will actually work to keep the garter straps in place. Does such an item exist? What should I be searching for? Do you have any recommendations on brand, etc.?
(The garter straps on the bustier also end in loop-and-button fasteners, not clips like a suspender. Does that change the kind of hose/thigh garter I need? Is there a special way of fastening them when it's not a clip?)
Thanks as always, MeFites! I just know there's somebody on the green with extensive knowledge of old-school lingerie.
(Or--last thought--I guess if you have any recommendations for a brand of truly sheer, non-shiny thigh-high hose that I could use with the bustier garter straps, that'd be cool too.)
