Lovely Vintage

Corset with suspender/garter clips... need help on stockings?

Hi,

So, I have a lovely vintage corset with suspender / garter clips at the bottom.

Normally, I wear it with tights and tuck the clips inside but I would love to wear it properly, with stockings.

Once, just when I was getting ready, I cut the top off some tights and tried to attach them to the clips, but I think the nylon was a bit thin and they ripped.

The next time, I realised I had bought hold up stockings, and the top was too thick for the clip.

The third time, the stockings didnt come up high enough on my leg. I had to really stretch them to reach the clip, and the nub/button ripped through the fabric again, prob due to too much tension.

What am I doing wrong? What should I look for on the packaging when shopping for stockings?

I would really like to wear it tonight, but that will involve finding stockings at my local branch of Boots, which may not happen.

You need to get the right size of stockings so you can attach the garters. You can cut a pair of tights or pantyhose but you must make sure they are long enough to reach the garters.
