Okay so color me naive, but how does a garter belt work?

I've been trying to decide on a very personal problem: what to wear under my wedding gown. The main things, petticoat and longline bra, I'm buying from the bridal salon. I know the rest is a bit personal, but I'm pretty torn.

On one hand, I'm chubby. My thighs...well, they rub. I usually wear shorts under dresses and skirts. Pantyhose will cover them. But...I'm going to be pretty hot in that heavy gown, and the top of the pantyhose will probably be under my longline bra. Making using the restroom more difficult than necessary.

My other option is a garter belt and thigh-highs. I have honestly never worn one and have no idea how it works. Yes, I know, duh. After asking around on Twitter I think it'll work out. Easier to go to the restroom, a little, well...cooler. And yes, sexier. ;)

I know, this all may be a bit TMI, but I wouldn't mind some feedback from ladies who have been there! Please?

Album of most of my finalized #wedding details if anyone is interested:

It's really all coming together! I have centerpieces, boutonnieres, corsages, bouquets, and filled vases. Our outfits are complete, the alterations have begun. I am SO excited with how everything looks!


My gorgeous bouquet:


I'm just going to concentrate on that and not how much I have left to do, m'kay? Cuz I'm kinda panicking. Just a bit.


  1. On LJ's weddingplans, Anti-Monkey Butt has been suggested, as has deodorant and plain ol' baby powder. I know I'll be using something like that in my underwear. ;) Maybe have the Anti-Monkey Butt sprinkled into the bike shorts or whatever you're going to wear underneath before you put it all on, to absorb sweat?

  2. No bike shorts under the gown lol, want to feel slightly feminine. ;) Just some powder should do it, not like I'll be dancing so I'm not too worried.
