Hmmm…I’m not really sure but woud love to know the answer myself. I’ve always seen the garters on your mid-thigh, even the ones you throw away.

I didn’t do a garter but I would have put the throw one on my mid calf so that my husband wasn’t going all the way up my skirt in public.

since garters are traditionally used to hold up thigh-highs, they go wherever your thigh-highs would end, which is generally a few inches above the knee to mid-thigh. obviously, if you’re not wearing thigh-highs, it can go wherever you’re comfortable putting it.

I didn’t even wear the throwing garter.  I wore my keepsake garter mid thigh, as if I were wearing thigh high panty hose.

I am wearing my regular keepsake garter mid thigh…but that is a good idea to put my throwing one on my calf (except I think it might fall down?)

Wear it as low as you can without it falling off. If it needs to be mid thigh to keep it up you can always wear the 2 garters on different legs.  And possibly you could just pull the garter down a bit yourself before the garter toss.
