The Perfect Combination Of Sexy And Style
Garter belts have come a long way since they were first created in the eighteenth century. Even the purpose of them has changed tremendously. Something that was once created to hold up socks, to a symbol of luck and prosperity when getting married, to a form of lingerie that would look sexy under a nice teddy and accentuate the upper thigh. This idea was brought to me by a customer who was looking for a different kind of garter belt. And what a great idea! I plan on doing many more in the near future. Stay tuned for different styles of these handmade garter belts. This particular garter belt is created from a white cotton and elastic band that has rainbow sequence through the middle of the band. I have attached three different silver chains to it with silver findings. At the bottom of the middle chain I have attached a silver butterfly charm. The whole thing flows beautifully together.
Wedding Garter History and Meaning
One superstition was that owning a piece of the wedding dress would bring good luck, leading to wedding guests attempting to literally attack the bride to rip off a piece of her gown. This led to brides wearing a specific article of clothing to be given out as the lucky piece in order to keep the dress in tact, and the bride out of harms way. Which was a really smart idea. And from that the garter belt was created.
