You don’t actually have to wear it on your thigh. You can wear it around your knee or calf. That is what I am planning to do.

I’m plus sized and our garter toss was totally fine. I also had a custom made plus size garter, and one of my skinny minny friends caught the bouquet – I remember worrying for a split second that the garter would just fall down her leg! But remember, they stretch and contract – The garter fit fine and people were none the wiser!

Don’t worry about it!

I’ve had this worry since my friend started shopping for her garter!! AHH! I kept telling myself “who the hell do I need to pay off to catch that thing, so the crowd of single men doesnt part like the Red Sea” AHH!! Im still scared to do it, and we dont even have that many SINGLE men; we seem to be the last ones, until the next generation of youngins start!

Also, you can always have the garter on the lower part of your leg. Thats what I did 🙂

If you remember correctly the skinny guy was super proud to show off those plus size panties to his friends…..Im super your FH will be just as proud to show and throw your plus size garter….I know how it is to worry about stuff like that…I being plus size too. But like the other bees said….be proud and if they dont like it they can leave!

@chasesgirl: I totally agree, love those shoes!!

To the OP, you can definitely make it work with some of the suggestions the other ladies have given. Do it and don’t be ashamed!

OP rock your garter! You love your legs your FH love your legs, and there is nothing saying that a plus side bride can’t have everything an “average” bride has just because she’s plus [email protected] I had two garters…my toss garter which I wore below my special garter that my grandmother and I made together for me to pass on to my first born girl! I went and bought my toss garter and VS and it did great, they are soooo stretchy you shouldn’t have any issues!!

I also purchased custom made garters for my wedding off of etsy.  As you can see “my” garter isn’t much larger than the toss and it was 19″
