Garter belts (Suspenders in England) are small straps or bands that hold up socks or stockings. For stockings, they are usually attached to a garter belt or the bottom of a corset, and have special clips on their ends. Garter belts worn with stockings by women have a strong erotic appeal to many men. They are very popular for wear by transvestites. As with many items of lingerie, they are sometimes items of fetish. For this reason they are sometimes worn by striptease artists.
