As a company who make lingerie and specialise in suspender belts (or garter belts if you’re in the US), the question of whether knickers (or panties) should be worn over or under the suspender belt it a frequently asked question of ours.
Maybe you’ve already bought yourself a three piece lingerie set, or maybe you’re starting your lingerie loving adventure with one piece that caught your eye and a pair of stockings, many people wonder the same question.
You’ve probably looked over the website extensively and noticed that all our product photos show the suspender belt being worn over the knickers, even in mannequin photos. Maybe you’ve tried to emulate this at home and after several very labour intensive and time consuming trips to the loo, you’ve wondered if this really is ‘correct’ or the ‘right way’?
The truth is that there are practical reasons for wearing knickers over your suspender belt. It can be far quicker to pop to the loo when knickers are worn on top, as you don’t need to unclip and re clip each suspender clip several times a day. And when you’re in the business of wearing 6 strap suspender belts (the minimum really required for straight stocking seams), this can really take some time.
Ultimately you, the wearer, have the choice of whether you put your suspender belt and stockings on first, or your knickers on first. There is no right or wrong and it’s entirely up to you.
When it comes to photo shoots, we always photograph the suspender belt over the knickers because the belt has more detail in it that the knickers, and if we showed it under the knickers you wouldn’t be able to properly see what you were buying; how many straps it has, where it’s designed to be worn on your torso or the details of the top stitching that we apply to every single seam.
So next time you’re wondering, or you see someone online wearing theirs differently to you, remember that this is totally down to your personal choice, to do whatever works for you best, and really is no one else’s business.
