Choosing your garter size
Making the right choice for your garter style and size
|Styles of Garter...|
|At Silk Garters I have three different ways of making your garter. Your garter can be: |
Garters elasticated all the way around with gathers...
This is our most popular style of garter with elastic encased with silk/satin and lace for comfort, pictured left is the ivory silk ruffle wedding garter. On the main garter shown there is a frilled lace edge, the same technique is used on the toss garter...it has gathers all the way around, but no lace.
Styles of Garter...
Shown on the right is our Vintage Sparkle Wedding Garter again it has gathers all the way around but it is still quite slim fitting with no frills. The bows are also flat to sit nicely under a slimmer fitting dress.Garters with a flat front...
This is how most of our personalised garters are made, although the garters that are gathered all the way around, can have some of the gathers moved to the back, to give a flat appearance at the front. This makes it more comfortable to wear than a flat panel with no stretch.
|Garters designed to sit fairly flat on the leg...|
These garters are designed particularly for the bride wearing a slim fitting dress. The fabric is just 2" (5cm) larger than your leg measurement, then elasticated for comfort. or have a few gathers at the back.
