Garter, Garter Belt, Garter Skirt

Initionally, Garters were use to hold up hose or socks.  The advent of elastic dimished the usage of Garters in real life, but you still see limited usage at Weddings. Why?

Traditionally, the witnesses would accompany a newly wed couple to the bridal chambers to ensure consummation. The wedding garter being retrieved from the bride served as proof to other guests that the deed was done, and the garter was then tossed into the sea of people.

Symbolically, the garter was thought to influence fertility. It also symbolized marriage consummation and future children for the couple. Because of this, the garter was fiercely sought after at weddings. It was an honor to detach the garter from the bride and was believed that the luck of the wedding couple would pass on to the guest who obtained the garter.

Garter Belts (or Suspender Belts): a belt with attached garters or fasteners, worn as an undergarment to hold up stockings.

Which brings us to the newer term-

Garter Skirt: (a dievca and Master favorite) A wider garter belt acting as a short skirt or mini skrt which can attach stockings.  Allows for bottom coverage with easy access – a flattering, sassy way to Present.

Working the stockings

Master has been into stockings lately.  dievca has been working them with a garter belt, no garter belt (stay-ups), chemise, slip, soft corset. etc.  Is your Sir or Madame into a certain presenation mode? XO


In need of a Garter Belt (lingerie and a dievca disaster)

dievca met up with Master and at his request had stockings on.
she chose to wear her Wolford black stay-ups.
Bad choice for the activities…

As vigorous action occurred while standing up and facing the Cityscape – dievca had a 1920’s rolled stocking moment. Master didn’t want her to take the stockings off, so it got worse and worse.

If the moment had been planned for…ok. dievca would have set a flapper’s theme and maybe used the rolled stocking elastics to help. You can buy them on etsy.


No such luck, the stockings rolled and sagged to her ankles.
dievca should have used a Garter Belt.

Garter/Garter belt/Suspender belt (British),
a belt with attached garters or fasteners,
worn as an undergarment to hold up stockings.


Next time, dievca will plan better and use a Garter Belt if the activities are going to be standing up and more vigorous.

Plus, with her corset, she would have looked like this (below) -Ciao Bella~
