Are you confused about which size wedding garter you will need?
~ Above is the best selling Lauren garter, available in several gorgeous colours, in sizes 14″-22″, 20″-26″ and XL plus size 27″-34″ ~
Unlike your usual clothing which comes in ‘Standard’ sizing, the size of your wedding garter will depend on, how high up your leg you choose to wear it…
If you’re having a garter photo or have a tight dress, you may decide to wear your garter just above the knee (A hand-span or 4”) and may need a smaller size…
Are you usually a plus size? You may not need a plus size garter…
To find your size, you will need to measure your leg, where you would like to wear your garter. Don’t worry if you don’t have a soft tape measure, you can use anything flat narrow and non-stretchy and then measure that against a ruler

Your measurement should be snug, but not tight, with the flat garters, you want to create a smooth line.
Choosing a ruffled garter, is slightly different…
~ Two layers of our exclusive cotton tulle are used to make the Darcie garter ~ One Size 14″-22″, Plus Size 20″-26″ and XL Plus Size 27″-34″ ~
I know with all the dashing around before the wedding, the weight just dropped off me, so if you’re someone who loses weight when they get a bit stressed and your measurement is a borderline size, you will be better off going for the size down.
e.g. with sizes 14”-22” (35cm- 56cm) and 20”-26” (50cm-66cm), if you’re 20” (50cm), choose the 14”-22” (35cm-56cm), this will still be secure, even with a little weight loss.
