Garter Belt Sizing


Garter belts are usually worn just below the navel and
measurements should be taken at that point. The length of 
the straps are derived from this point as well and will be 
adjustable to hold up stockings short as well as long. 
If for some reason  you find the straps to be too short 
or too long we can always custom tailor  your belt.

 TWO STEP GUIDE TO FIND YOUR SIZE


This is a guide which should help in finding 
your stocking size but may not be Ideal 
for every one. 

Sizing is not an exact science and can require 
trying different size nylon stockings 
to find a size perfect for you. 

Stocking fit will vary from one brand to another.

Vintage flat knit nylon stockings do not have the elasticity of vintage 
run resist stockings or modern type stockings.

Please follow the two steps below
