In the 1950s, it was common to find both narrow and deep garter belts. Which you favor is entirely a matter of personal preference, so the choice up to you! This cute little belt by What Katie Did is only 3.5 inches deep, and is primarily made from stretchy powermesh, with a non stretch satin panel at the front. The narrower style is easier to wear panties over, which in turn makes calls of nature a breeze! The six garters have metal clips, and will both hold your stockings up securely, and keep your seams firmly in place.
