What is a "garter"?

arrow

A garter is a narrow band of fabric or elastic that is worn around the leg to hold up stockings. It is typically made of satin, silk, or lace and is often decorated with ribbons or bows. Garters were traditionally used as a functional accessory to keep stockings from slipping down, but they also became a popular fashion item in the early 20th century. In some cultures, the garter has also been associated with wedding traditions, where the bride will wear a special garter and it is then thrown to the single male guests. Today, garters are often worn for special occasions or as a sexy lingerie accessory.
