From the history of lingerie: garters and belts

The history of things stores many interesting, unusual and, sometimes, funny facts about a variety of things and events. And lingerie is no exception. Here, for example, the intimate detail of underwear – the garter owes its popularity to the English king Edward III. How it was?

In chivalric novels and in historical chronicles, an incident happened in 1348 at a ball in Windsor Castle with one high-born lady. Some call her Countess of Kent, others claim that she was Queen Philip, and still others attribute the incident to Countess Salisbury.

Here’s the story that happened during the dance: a blue ladies’ garter suddenly appeared on the floor. The courtiers began to whisper, chuckles were heard in some places – still, such an intimate detail of lingerie and suddenly came into view. But King Edward picked up the garter and fastened it to the sleeve of his camisole, saying: “Let it be a shame to someone who thinks badly of this!”

Whether the royal act was dictated by the chivalry of the king or sympathy for the beautiful lady is not exactly known, but the fact that after this incident Edward III founded the knightly Order of the Garter, and the words spoken at the ball became the motto of this Order is a historical fact.

But back to lingerie. A garter called a ribbon of elastic material that was attached to a corset or belt. In the Middle Ages, with the help of a garter, trousers were supported, moreover, ladies and gentlemen wore garter. Later, with the help of garters, they began to support stockings.

By the way, the garters of noble people have always been richly decorated with lace, embroideries, ribbons and even precious stones.

But over time, the garters, as an element of women’s underwear, almost completely disappeared, their belts replaced them, and stockings were almost completely replaced by pantyhose. But, nevertheless, today garter is in demand as an element of erotic lingerie that women love and admire men.

Moreover, a spicy wedding tradition has been preserved in many countries: the bride always wears a round garter, which the groom then takes off and throws her unmarried friends to the side. It is believed that caught the garter will soon get married.

Women’s underwear
As an element of lingerie, a stocking belt appeared in the nineteenth century. The prototype of the modern belt is considered to be the model invented in 1878 by France Dedier. The first belt looked quite simple: the base, which is a narrow ribbon, was worn on the waist or hips. And four rubber bands equipped with fasteners to support stockings were sewn or fastened to the base.

A new piece of women’s underwear quickly became very popular, and the styles of belts became more beautiful and elegant. This continued until the designers came up with tights. The new fashion quickly replaced stockings and, accordingly, such a detail of underwear as a belt, but after a couple of decades, the belt comes into fashion again, as women quickly realized how sexy and piquant they look in stockings.

Modern belts are very beautiful: they are sewn from high-quality fabrics: silk, satin or elastic, belts are decorated with lace and embroidery, and fasteners for stockings are made of lightweight plastic.

Today, the belt, as an element of women’s underwear, is quite popular, just like stockings. Women enjoy wearing belts and putting on stockings, especially if they want to look spectacular and charm their beloved man. And pantyhose have become an ordinary everyday part of the toilet.
