Garter belts have been around for quite some time. They are an item of personal clothing that wraps around the hip area and is traditionally used to hold stockings in place. In the earlier days in our history, garters were placed right below the knee and used to hold up the stocking firmly in place. While this style of a garter still exists, it is the garter that is placed around the hip area that has become popular. Some felt that with the invention of pantyhose that the garter belt would have faded and become a thing of the past. This however hasn’t happened.
