Garter Pantyhose/Suspender Tights
Suspender or Garter Tights can be one of two things. The Mock Suspender Tights, made famous by fashion designer Henry Holland and seen on celebrities such as Jessie J and Rihanna, are tights with a higher denier leg that comes to stocking height. The top part has a sheer finish with a lower dernier with mock straps printed or woven in a higher denier on top. These tights give the appearance of stockings and suspenders or hold ups but take the same design as a pair of tights- i.e. from toe to waist with gusset enclosed.
The term Suspender or Garter Tights can also be used when referring to a hosiery item that comes in one piece but open around the gusset and waist area as it would be when wearing stockings and suspenders. The waistband of the garment acts as a suspender belt. However the straps that reach down to the ‘stockings’ are attached permanently and so no straps or clasps are required to hold the stockings in place. Sometimes called 'Strip Panty', these tights could be described as cut out tights as the waist, hip and gusset area are cut out.
