1. MAISON CLOSE Tapage Nocturne Garter Belt

Review

French lingerie producer Maison Close is renowned for producing classy, sensual, and luxurious pieces filled with classic Parisian style. This Nocturne garter belt is very much in keeping with their trend for beautiful simplicity.

Made primarily of soft, high-quality lace, this simple suspender belt has a surprisingly saucy twist. It comes with detachable handcuffs and can be paired with an open thong and half-cup bra for a seriously stimulating fit.

Available in sizes small to extra-large, this is a reasonably stretchy garter belt which doesn’t have harsh elastic or ribbing. As a result, it will softly cocoon your hips, giving a light and airy feel on your skin.

Composition:

84% Polyamide, 16% Elastane

2. AGENT PROVOCATEUR Whitney Suspender

Review

Agent Provocateur is the pinnacle of vampy, over-the-top sexiness in pretty much every area. So it really should come as no shock that this suspender belt is an intricate, sexy, with a touch of BDSM-chic in its aesthetic.

The soft, satin-look elastics that make up this suspender belt are relatively firm, but they do have some give in them. And the effect is undeniably stunning, especially when paired with the matching bra.

Whitney suspender belt, available in sizes 1 – 4 (roughly UK 6 – 12), so may not be overly friendly or forgiving for plus-sized women. However, if you are self-conscious of lumps and bumps it might be advisable to pop a pair of nude, high-waisted panties on underneath this.

Nevertheless, this astonishing belt looks incredible on, giving an enticing, sexy look.

Composition:

90% Polyamide, 10% Elastane

3. DITA VON TEESE Bijou Chartreuse Suspender

Review

Celebrity lingerie lines are becoming more and more common. The rise of SavagexFenty is just one example of this. Of course, few celebrity lines come close to those launched by Burlesque icon Dita Von Teese. 

The Bijou Chartreuse suspender belt is a perfect example of her vintage pinup inspired style. 

The delicate lace and mesh, creating this beautifully embroidered garter belt, look stunning when worn in contrast to plain lingerie. Even so, best worn with the matching bra and pants this garter belt will make you feel like a real glamour puss. 

Available in sizes 8 to 16, this is a predictably inclusive line (Dita is well-known for being body positive) that is both comfortable and beautiful. 

Composition:

62% Nylon, 30 Polyester, 8% Elastane

4. FLEUR OF ENGLAND Iris Suspender Belt

Review

A quintessentially English brand, Fleur of England specialises in producing ultra-feminine, ultra-comfortable designs in a way that shows high fashion doesn’t have to be uncomfortable. And the Iris suspender belt perfectly illustrates this.

The mix of satin and delicate lace in sky blue gives it a feel of vintage luxury and glamour. The dramatic incline of the lower edge makes the attachments feel seamless, like a part of the overall suspender belt as opposed to sewn on additions.

Available in sizes small to large, this isn’t the most inclusive line, but it is undeniably stunning and comfortable. Paired with matching lingerie, it gives a captivating, luxurious look, making you feel the queen of the show!

Composition:

58% Polyamide 38% Silk 2% Elastane 2% Viscose

5. WHAT KATIE DID Maitresse Nouveau Suspender Belt

Review

If you are really into the vintage aesthetic, What Katie Did is the brand for you. Specialising in 1950’s fashion, they came from practically nothing and is now one of the most popular vintage-inspired labels in the UK.

The Maitresse Nouveau narrow suspender belt beautifully represents the character of the era. Plain black, but undeniably stylish, this mesh and satin suspender belt looks absolutely stunning paired with matching pants and a vintage style, non-underwired bra.

Available in sizes 8 to 18 this is one of the most size-inclusive options on the list. Though it uses elastics, it is relatively kind on the skin, softly embracing the hips.

Classic and timeless, the Maitresse Nouveau suspender belt is a staple piece, creating a unique, signature style.

Composition:

88% Polyamide, 12% Spandex

6. DITA VON TEESE Vedette Lace Suspender

Review

Another offering from Dita Von Teese, the Vedette lace suspender belt is a little less traditional and much flashier. Shaped more like a waist cincher, this blue lace suspender with velvet ribbing is luxurious, feminine, and a little bit wacky.

The detailing in the lace is utterly divine, and really has an air of vintage opulence that can’t be ignored. While this could technically be paired with any plain lingerie, it does go best with the matching thong and bra.

Available in sizes 8 to 14, this belt is a little less forgiving than the first Dita Von Teese offering. The ribbing doesn’t stretch as much, giving less flexibility. However, it is true to size and should give you no trouble.

Composition:

63% Polyester, 21% Élasthanne, 16% Nylon

7. KATHERINE HAMILTON Mariella Suspender

Review

Katherine Hamilton lingerie is mature, sophisticated, and sensual, just like the Mariella Lace and Satin suspender belt, which is radiant in keeping with that trend.

Soft, sumptuous burgundy satin is complemented by embellished tulle panels that cover the hips, almost cradling the lower body. Lightweight and breathable, this suspender belt is a little more modest than some of the other options, providing cover which extends slightly beyond the waistband of the matching pants.

Available in sizes small to extra-large, it is pretty inclusive and can be worn by women of pretty much any size. The increased coverage also offers a smoother silhouette and minimises the chance of VPL, which is nice.

Composition:

82% Polyamide, 10% Silk, 8% Elastane

8. MAISON CLOSE Inspiration Divine Suspender

Review

Another stunning and sexy entry from Maison Close, the Inspiration Divine classic waist cincher also acts as a suspender belt (though it can be worn alone).

The mix of mesh and floral lace accentuates the shape of the waist and gives it a dramatic hourglass effect. The attachable suspender straps have gold-coloured cross-shaped clips to secure your stockings. When paired with the matching bra and thong, this suspender belt has a vampy, sexy feel that is reminiscent of the 50s femme-fatale.

Available in sizes small to extra-large, this is a fairly inclusive lingerie piece which will make you feel like a goddess!

Composition:

100% Polyamide

9. AGENT PROVOCATEUR Helene Suspender Belt

Review

The second offering from Agent Provocateur is uncharacteristically demure, with baby pink satin and lace curve around the hips accentuating the waist. The satin waistband seems to hold the two hip panels together from a distance as the delicate lace fades into some skin tones.

Especially notable on the pale skin (though on darker skin tones it provides a stunningly subtle and beautiful contrast) making it almost invisible. As a result, it keeps some of that classic Agent Provocateur sexiness.

Available in sizes 2 to 4 (roughly equivalent to a UK 8 to 12) the Helen leavers lace and satin suspender belt looks flawless on, giving a sophisticated,, almost retro look.

Composition:

92% Silk, 8% Elastane

10. ANN SUMMERS Alina Suspender Belt

Review

Ann Summers is, without a doubt, one of the most iconic and affordable lingerie brands in the UK. Covering a range of styles and catering to most body types and sizes, this is a brand with something for everyone.
The Alina Suspender Belt is a perfect example of how stunning their designs can be.

Sat high on the waist, this suspender is crafted of mesh and satin held together with a soft elastic waistband. Its delicate shape is at odds with the starkness of the black colouring.

The matching thong and bra with their eye-catching cut-outs make Alina suspender belt a classy but undeniably sexy, which can be worn under almost anything.

Available in sizes extra-small to large (roughly a UK 4-6 to UK 16 – 18), this is an affordable and accessible suspender belt which is both comfortable and sensual.

Composition:

63% Polyamide 27%Polyester 10%Elastane

Conclusion

The essential aspect when it comes to choosing the best suspender belts should be a style that you will be comfortable with wearing. First of all, think which areas of your body you are most at-easy showing and which you want to be disguised by the suspender belt.

Secondly, think about your body shape. If you are curvier a low sitting, slim suspender belt may give that desired attractive look, as it will provide less support. In contrast, a high-waisted, broader option will flatter and enhance your curves.

Finally, consider the material and colour. This is entirely dependent on your taste, of course, but you should think about how often you intend to wear it and what you are likely to wear it under. Although you can never go wrong with the classic colours such as black, red, white or nude, it pays to have at least one white or nude-toned suspender belt, perfect for wearing under pale clothing.
