Pull on your stockings after fastening the suspender belt with a hook at the back. We recommend first gathering up the whole stocking on your hand, then placing your toes in and gently unrolling them because nylons can be delicate. You can also use a piece of string to hold the stocking in place while you unroll it.
Pull the suspenders up to the top of your shoes. If you’re wearing a high-heeled shoe, you may need to pull them up a little higher than you normally would. This will allow you to wear your high heels without having to worry about them falling off.

What do you do with a garter belt?
A suspender belt is designed to keep your stockings from slipping whilst creating an attractive silhouette and gives a polished look to your outfit. The traditional type consists of a belt with a loop at the back of the belt. This loop is used to hold the stockinette fabric in place whilst you are wearing it. It is usually made of leather, but can also be made from a variety of materials such as cotton, silk, nylon, or even metal.
Modern suspenders are made in a number of different styles and colours. They can range in length from just a few inches to over a foot and a half, and they can be worn on either side of your waist. You can choose to wear them with or without a waist belt, depending on how you want to show off your figure.
