      “Garter/Hose or Pantyhose?”

      It’s to bad the 3rd option isn’t listed; Thigh Hi’s or Stay Ups!
      My choice is “Garter/Hose”.

      Lost count many decades ago of how many pairs of pantyhose I had to throw away because I got a run or snag in one leg or ruined trying to get down far enough so I could pee. I am cursed with a weak bladder and now no prostate so when my “mini” wants to go it does! With nylon or stay up stockings and satin panties properly “outside” the garters mother nature is responded to faster and easier. If one buys many of the same pairs they are matched so only 1 leg covering needs to be tossed when ruined which means they should last twice as long.

      I also favor stockings IPO Pantyhose for their ease in other matters. I was a teenager during the 1950’s and dating was pure joy at that time. Those infamous Pantyhose had not yet been invented so along with their huge billowing petticoats the girls wore gartered nylons or “Bobby Socks”! This sure made for some interesting late night times after the Record Hops and other dress up activities of those times!!  🙂

      Garters is the most sexy and can be matching  set. But I personal always wear pantyhose, it help me hold my tucking and give more feminine shape to my tummy and waist.

      Usually a garter and hose, they’re one of the first things that became part of my regular wardrobe a million years ago, but sometimes I’ll go for stockings if I’m wearing other articles to try to appear more feminine (hip and butt enhancers and a gaff mainly)

      I prefer thigh highs, but also like wearing a garter and hose. After suffering a DVT blood clot in February, I have to wear compressing stockings and have found some nice looking ones online in a comfortable thigh high.

      no question — garter/hose are sexier than pantyhose.  maybe not as comfortable, but being sexy is worth the extra effort 🙂

      I love the feeling of pantyhose and I started with cheep brands to try it out.  Then I bought Falke and Wolford and it is a game changer.  So light and softs.  When I get dressed to the 9s though I prefer a garter belt and matching bra and panties.

      I love both but I own more pantyhose and wear them frequently – typically black ones with matching 5 or 6 inch platform heels.

      I wear both, pantyhose for normal wear, garter belt and stockings (or thigh highs) when I want to feel sexy. Plus they make it much easier to sit and pee…lol.

      Julia Morton…

      Especially when we are older and much less flexible.  😉👍

      I saw a video of a young 20something GG who put on a pair of Pantyhose standing up… would be nice to be young and limber again…

      Hi Ria

      Thigh high stockings are my favorite to. I wear short skirts that the hemline is just below the top of my thigh highs Pair this look with a pair of 3 inch heels for a sexy and comfortable look. My favorite color is suntan thigh high stockings. They cover any flaw that I may have and make my legs look great

      I voted Garters and Stockings – the ritual of putting them on is a thrill, and the look and feel is super-charged femininity. The height of elegance and eroticism.  I don’t own any Pantyhose that can stand up to that.

      But here is the million dollar question.  Do you wear your panties under the garter straps? Or over?  Wearing them over certainly makes it easier when visiting the loo.  But I think in the tight-laced 50’s, it was considered risque if not downright slutty to put the panties on last (because they will, by necessity, have to come off first!)

      Dita Von Teese advises “Wear them the French way: underwear over the top of the garter belt, not under.”

      The “French Way”?  who knew?

      I like panyhose but by far my favorite is stockings with a garter belt. Love the ones with multible straps. When fully dressed or wearing under my guy clothes, it really feels wonderful? Thanks for this poll. It is a question I have often wondered what others thought.

      G’day Genevieve,

      My weakness is garter / suspender belts and stockings.  I have over 20 different designs, but absolutely love those with multiple straps, 10+ is the best arrangement for comfort and support.

      They make me feel so sexy.  The stocking tops with that bit of flesh look great.  Plus, as Carolyn says they seem so much more functional than pantyhose.

      Davina

      love it your spot on

      Note to our sisters across the pond: over here we call garter belts – suspender belts, pantyhose – tights and thigh highs – hold ups (but not as in John Wayne “holding up” a Wells Fargo coach)! Hose is something we water the garden with, what you’d call your yard. Hope this clarifies things.

      I voted garter/hose but only because knee highs weren’t an option.  I like to keep things simple.

      I began wearing stockings and pantyhose when I was 4. I loved the stockings, but keeping them up was always a problem. So when I got my first pantyhose and learned to put them on, it was heavenly. They stayed up by themselves. I could walk around in them and even sleep in them at night. Then when I discovered sheer to waist pantyhose, I loved the look and never wanted to take them off.

      Still, I was intrigued with stockings and holding them up with graters. I wanted to experience that. When I got my own place at 18, I really began to step up my femme dressing. I bought everything I always wanted. That included many pairs of stockings and garter belts. it was so much fun and exciting, sliding on my stockings and hooking them up to my garters. I really enjoyed it. But when I went out, I always wore a short dress with heels and sheer to waist pantyhose. That was and still is the look I love best. Now as the years have gone by, I pretty much have turned to wearing pantyhose most of the time. That’s still what I wear out with my short dresses. But occasionally its a lot of fun to slip on a pair if stockings and hook them up to garters. There’s just something wonderful, sexy and fun about that.

      For shear (or is that sheer?) sexiness, nothing beats a garter belt and stockings.  But I don’t wear them often for a couple of reasons.

      First, with my belly, my waist and hips are the same size.  I can often pull on a pair of pants or a skirt without unzipping it.  So unless I make the garter belt super tight, it is harder to stay up and tight; it is more likely to slip down.

      Second, they don’t make the clips the way they used to.  What should be a simple operation to put the stocking over the clip and slide it up has become a difficult operation.  The little little bit of stocking shouldn’t make it so much more difficult to slide the clip into place than without it, but it does.  I get the clip over the stocking and in the wide part, then have an almost impossible job of pulling it up to the narrow part.  The clips I used when I was younger were so much easier to put on.

      Cleaning out my mom’s things, I found many many garter clips that she cut off girdles.  While the rubber is drying out a bit after so many years, the clips look to be in good shape.  My daughter noticed the clips and said to me that they feel much more sturdy than today’s garter clips.  Today they use plastic clips and a plastic knob.  I have had the plastic clip break on me.  The ones I got from my mom are metallic clips and rubber knobs, and I think they work better.

      So if I am not going to go bare legged, I will use pantyhose, or stay-up thigh highs.  In the winter I’m more likely to wear tights.  I save the garters for very special occasions.

      I enjoy both but I prefer pantyhose. We had 3 new record high temperatures this summer. 103 with high humidity.  I still wear my favorite pantyhose.

      Oh my!

      Pantyhose? Too much work. On and off. Awful. Maybe you have to use the ladies room. Sit and pee ladies, it won’t hurt you.

      Thigh highs? The MOST overrated item. Why you say? They DO NOT stay up. End of story.

      Stockings? So feminine, so easy. I love Trasparenze.

      Yes, Ladies…OBG, BODY BRIEFERS, GARTER BELTS …with beautiful,100% nylon stockings,in all colors,styles, back seamed, fully fashioned Stockings.

      I have Always thought of this as one of the main reasons I dress. I have been told I have great legs. For a ” guy” they are a very feminine shape from toe to thigh. Good genes ,thankfully.

      I get my “stuff” from SECRETS IN LACE, Richmond,VA, WHAT KATIE DID,Burbank,CA. And GIO STOCKINGS on Amazon.

      Everyone enjoy your lingerie…

      Hi Genevieve, while I voted for garter belt & stockings (because there wasn’t a third option “no preference/it depends” or a fourth option “thigh highs”), for me it truly depends on the mood that I am in, the look that I am going for, and what outfit I will be wearing.  When I get glammed up in a LBD or fun club wear then definitely the garter belt & stockings.  For my office casual look, panty hose or thigh highs will get the nod.  Stay healthy, stay safe, All the Best, Hugs, Krista

      Garter belt and stockings are my #1 go to for leg coverings.  I don’t own but a couple pair of pantyhose and never have owned very many at one time, just as I needed them.  I wear leggings and tights more than pantyhose, and I usually only wear those when it is cold and windy.  I even own and wear knee highs more than pantyhose.

      I end up wearing the garter belt just for effect,  because I always were thigh highs with them. Maybe if I ever tried a real silk pair I’d wear regular stockings with them, but thigh highs stay put and don’t stretch out.

      G’day Genevieve,

      My weakness is garter / suspender belts and stockings.  I have over 20 different designs, but absolutely love those with multiple straps, 10+ is the best arrangement for comfort and support.

      They make me feel so sexy.  The stocking tops with that bit of flesh look great.  Plus, as Carolyn says they seem so much more functional than pantyhose.

      I went through a phase about 6 years ago to where I couldn’t get enough of garter belts and stockings. I owe about 8 different garter belts, all different colors. However, then I started to wear pantyhose and I found it do much easier to get dressed. Although, using a restroom was easy with the garter belt, just as long as the panties were over it, lol.

      Although I absolutely love both ways I would have to vote for garters and nylon stockings (hose). I almost always underdress in pantyhose daily but home and fun times are garters and hose, it gives so much more freedom without taking everything off. The illusion to me is perfectly sexy, sophisticated and functional. Always remember to put the panties on last. I see so many models do it the other way around. I want the garter belt and hose to stay on for playtime, not all come off with the panties.
