Sexy A to Z – G


I am sharing something each day covering the alphabet until I reach Z!  Here we are at day 7!  I am sharing topics having to do with sex, BDSM and/or kink.  These topics are of things I am curious to learn about, love to know more about or just love to share.

If you have anything to add or have something else in that alphabet letter to share, please do so in the comments below.

Today’s sexy letter of the alphabet is:


Garters/Garter Belts (and Stockings) – many get turned on seeing a woman in these under garments.  Maybe it is such a turn on because they are so uncommonly worn now.

The Garters are a round elastic band with silk or material covering it, worn above the knee to the high thigh area, holding up the stocking. The Garter Belt (or suspenders as some call them) are used to clip on to the stockings to hold them up so they won’t fall as the woman is walking and/or moving.

*Definition for Garter and Garter Belt:

Merriam Webster
a: a band worn to hold up a stocking or sock
b: a band worn to hold up a shirt sleeve
c: a strap hanging from a girdle or corset to support a stocking
an article of clothing comprising a narrow band of fabric fastened about the leg to keep up stockings. In the eighteenth to twentieth centuries, they were tied just below the knee, where the leg is most slender, to keep the stocking from slipping. The advent of elastic has made them less necessary from this functional standpoint, although they are still often worn for fashion. Garters have been widely worn by men and women, depending on fashion trends.
Also…Suspenders or suspender belts, also known as “garter belts” in American English, are an undergarment consisting of an elasticated material strip usually at least 2 to 3 inches (5.1 to 7.6 cm) in width; it can be wider. Two or three elastic suspender slings are attached on each side, where the material is shaped to the contours of the body. The suspenders are typically clipped to stockings with metal clips into which a rubber disc is inserted through the stocking material effectively ‘locking’ the stocking in place. These are normally attached to a length of elastic allowing for adjustment. These clips, also known as suspender slings, are best attached to stockings with a simple welt that do not have lace, or ‘hold-ups’ with a silicone rubber lining.

Suspender (garter) belts are usually worn at the waist or just slightly below to prevent the belt sliding down as it is pulled downward by the stockings. Some undergarments such as corselettes or girdles may come with suspender slings attached.


I was not sure about them when I was asked to wear them.  I had always worn pantyhose and tights.  So to put a pair of stockings on with garter belt or to wear hold-ups was awkward at first.  I thought I liked the hold-ups better because there wasn’t anything else I had to worry about.  But the more the hold-ups did not “hold up” I began wanting to wear the stockings and garter belt more.  And I found that it was actually better because I didn’t have to worry about them falling down or feeling funny.  The only thing I have found I might worry about is one of the clips or suspenders coming off or unhooking from the stockings.

I find I feel sexy and in my own erotic scene when I have them on.

Hmmm, maybe I will go put some one now! 😉

Come back tomorrow and I will share a topic that begins with the Letter H!
