Sock garters come in many forms and anybody can make them with just a little creativity. But not everybody wants to have to make their own so we try to offer at least a few fun and useful styles. We are always dreaming up new ones and sometimes have trouble keeping them in stock for one reason or another.
Our first sock garters were based on the ones our Angora thigh high makers offered. I asked before making ours because stealing other peoples ideas just isn’t nice. They said they didn’t know the origin and that by all means we should go ahead and make them. The latest edition is an even less expensive version that is just for around your knees. You could cuff your knee highs or OTKs to cover these, but I found I really like leaving them showing. It is recommended that you wear these as loosely as is functional because if you tighten them too much you are restricting the flow of blood through your legs and we do not want that do we? No, no we don’t because tingling toes and spider veins can result and that just isn’t good!

Garters were used in the middle ages and before that. Stockings back then we’re made from non-elastic material and needed garters to stay up. They could be simple pieces of string or elaborate woven ribbons. The order of the garter was founded in 1348 and is the oldest chivalric order still existing.
Those sock garters are great! I looked up the origin, and it said that garters have been around since the 17th century. There was something called the “order of the garter” in which members wore leather or fabric straps, tied just below their knees, both to hold their socks up and show membership. Pretty cool! I am sure these are much more comfy since they are elastic!!
I think these look so cute on the Msquareds!
I’m so glad you’re making cheaper sock garters! When I first looked at the page I was overwhelmed because many of them were around $18, but under $10 is much easier on my budget. : D !!
