More suspender advice

- My boyfriend has pointed me to this site and I must say, it's very impressive! I had previously thought everyone took stockings for granted - you still see racks of them on sale in places like M&S; I had no idea they were so 'under threat'! I am a manager for one of the big mobile companies in the UK (think fruit) and regularly wear hold ups for work. I am 37 and did wear stockings and suspenders for years … [Read more...]

How deep should you attach suspenders?

- For all the suspender (garter) wearers out there, how deep do you attach your suspenders into the stocking tops to ensure they stay put all day? Is it 1/2", 1" or 1 1/2"? And is there a depth at which it doesn't work, ie popping happens? Thanks in anticipation. - I prefer to attach the garter approximately an inch into the front of the welt and in back just above the finishing loop. - I have taken to wearing my … [Read more...]

The problems of narrow suspenders

- I have just had a look at the old pictures on the Spick & Span site, and despite the pics being from what appears to be the sixties, and the stockings being either FFs or RHT, many of the models are wearing totally inappropriate suspenders. The ones I refer to consist of just a narrow, frilly loop of elastic around the waist with frilly straps, or ones that are completely covered by the narrow hipster style … [Read more...]


The best skirts to wear with stockings

- Could I canvass the opinions of this forum as to which type of skirt compliments stockings and suspenders best? I must profess that a skirt that rests to just above my knees and with a back split offers me most elegance and poise for workwear but a long, fitted ankle-length skirt with high-heels gets the most success when it comes to attracting a partner! Maybe its because others think that I might have more … [Read more...]


Can higher deniers still be attractive?

- I'm no fan of thick opaques but on separate occasions in the last week I've seen three ladies (one each in their early 20s, late 30s, and mid 40s), all of whom were attractive, all smartly dressed for work (the oldest in a corporate grey suit), and all with skirts at knee length. Each of these was wearing shoes with not-too-chunky heels (4", 3" 2" respectively). Their expensive-looking tan-coloured hosiery (50% … [Read more...]
