Lingerie has the power to make us feel confident, sensual and empowered. Among the many lingerie accessories, suspender clips and stockings hold a special place. These pieces can add a special touch of sophistication and allure to any outfit. However using suspender clips and selecting the right stockings can sometimes be a bit daunting, so we are here to help! In this blog post let us guide you through the process of using suspender clips like a pro and help you choose the perfect stockings to complete your look. 

How to put on suspenders and stockings 

Once you have chosen the ideal suspenders for you, it’s time to attach them to your stockings, there’s a few ways to do this dependent on you! 
  • Start by fastening the suspender belt snugly around your waist, making sure it’s comfortable and flatters your curves. 
  • Locate the suspender straps, typically four in total attached to the bottom of the suspender belt. Each strap features a metal or plastic clasp at the end. 
  • Begin by putting your stockings on and then squeezing and unclasping one clasp at a time, slipping the stocking inside, and pressing the clasp closed once it's attached to the stocking. 
  • Repeat this process for all remaining straps, evenly distributing them linearly around your hips. 
Another way, which may be easier for people with limited mobility or who struggle to reach the back clasps. 
  • Start by laying your stockings down with the front facing forward and the same with the suspender belt of your choice.
  • Line them up so they clip on to the stockings evenly and clip each clasp on once at a time.
  • Once this is done you should be able to pick up the suspender belt with the stockings hanging evenly off them.
  • Bunch the stockings up and pull them up your legs.
  • Once these are on your can do up the suspender belt at the back and adjust the length to fit your legs.
Be cautious with your stockings, as most are quite delicate. Make sure to not pull them on like a pair of socks, instead bunch them up and delicately pull them up inch by inch so as to avoid ripping them.

Types of Stockings

As for what kind of stockings to wear with your suspenders, we have a few recommendations. 

Sheer Stockings 

A classic choice for a sophisticated and polished look, they are made from lightweight materials and offer a subtle hint of skin while providing a smooth finish. Sheer stockings work well for both everyday wear and special occasions. For a touch of vintage-inspired glamour, opt for seamed stockings which feature a long back seam running up the entirety of the leg.

Opaque Stockings

If your looking for a bit more coverage and warmth, opt for opaque! These are thicker and often have a more matte appearance. They are perfect for cooler weather or when you want a more modest look. To add a dash of playfulness and personality to your ensemble check out our coloured stockings.

Adjusting your Suspender Belt 

Once the clasps of your suspenders are securely attached to your stockings, take a moment to adjust the suspender straps to the desired length. This is the most important part of the process, and will depend on your height, the stocking length, and what feels most comfortable to you. Make sure the straps are evenly adjusted to avoid imbalances or sagging. If you have chosen a suspender belt not intended for stockings, secure the garter straps around your legs until they comfortably stay in place. Once fitted correctly, the suspender should elongate your look and flatter all of your beautiful curves.

Briefs: Under or Over?

There are two ways you can wear your suspenders- either over your briefs or underneath. If you’re planning for the whole look to be ripped off, then we recommend wearing your suspenders on top of your briefs. If you rather want easy access and the extra confidence of the suspender throughout your night, we recommend putting the suspender under your briefs, allowing your briefs to be pulled off while the rest of your outfit remains. Either way, a pair of suspenders will elevate your nightly look and increase your confidence.
Although a suspender belt may seem like a daunting addition to your lingerie collection at first, with the right steps it can become a seamless and exciting part of your lingerie outfits. Remember to take your time, adjust the straps for a perfect fit, and wear your suspenders with confidence. The best lingerie ensembles are ones that make you feel beautiful and suspenders are the perfect accessory to help you shine in the bedroom.
