Ok, so I feel stupid asking this, but I’ve been looking at garters for the garter toss, and then I started thinking, am I Just supposed to wear this thing around my leg all night? But then no, I started looking and there are garter belts and everything, which attach to knee-highs, as far as I can tell! My dress is supportive enough on top that I don’t need a bra/bustier, and I was just planning on wearing regular undies and plain ole nylons on the bottom. Am I “supposed” to wear a a garter belt and knee highs and everything? Or can I just slip the garter over my nylons?
Thanks for the advice!

@geekily: my guess would be to just wear the garter. they really don’t have any place for the belts to hook onto and garter belts are typically for thigh-highs.
They USED to be used to keep socks up and before that, I believe the men’s hose (think medieval/renaissance

You can totally wear the garter over your normal nylons. I think most people do this. Garter belts and such actually scare me a bit (look too much like medieval torture devices to me).

@tinlizzleizzle: lol. they also aren’t very useful unless the straps are attached to something other than a “belt” that is nothing more than elastic that goes around the waist. Been there, tried that, it failed miserably.

Just wear whatever undies/understuff you normally would, and put the garter on over that.
You’ll likely find it fairly annoying/uncomfortable – for most of my brides that did a toss they didnt actually put it on until after the reception started just because it bugged them.
