From lacy numbers to vintage-inspired embroidery and garters embellished with something blue, we've got you covered. Ahead, 19 garters and sets to wear under your wedding dress, on your wedding night, on your honeymoon, and beyond.
Best Something Blue: Something Blue Lace Roses Garter Set
While most garters are white with a touch of blue hidden throughout, this all light blue garter makes much more of a statement. Slip it on your thigh before checking your "something old, something new, and something borrowed" boxes.

Best Vintage-Inspired: TeAmore Spotlight Embroidered Set
This bra, panty, and garter belt set are straight out of a Gatsby scene. The French embroidery boasts Art Deco details and scalloped edges. And as if that wasn't luxurious enough, the silk straps on the bra and suspender belt come complete with 24-karat gold-plated hardware.
Best Lace Details: Kiki de Montparnasse Coquette Set
This sweet lace bra with eyelash edging details looks feminine and sexy, especially when paired with the garter belt and lace-up panties. The garter belt sits at the natural waistline and boasts a peplum lace detail at the hip that gives this entire set a flirty feel.

Best Neutral: Fleur Du Mal Velvet Lily Embroidery Garter Belt Set
Whether you're planning to wear this set under your rehearsal dress, wedding gown, or on your honeymoon, consider a nude color rather than white.

If you're the bride-to-be who refuses to conform to an all-white ensemble, this set gives you bridal vibes while also feeding your fun side. Colorful floral embroidery over polka-dot mesh is anything but boring.

Best Garter Belt: For Love And Lemons Love Story Garter Set
While most garter belts are worn slung low on the hips and often feature straps suspended from a simple silhouette, this garter belt sits high on the natural waistline and mimics the look of a half corset.

It doesn't get more luxe than ivory satin mixed with an overlay of ivory lace. This expensive garter also features a cute bow that is worth every penny.
Can I wear lingerie under my wedding dress?
It all depends on your wedding dress style and lingerie details. Slip styles will most likely require seamless underwear or shapewear, whereas voluminous ball gowns may be more conducive to lacy lingerie. If your lingerie set adds unwanted bulk or unsightly seams, it's best to opt for simple and smooth undergarments.
What lingerie works best for my body type?
There are no rules—ultimately, it's what you feel the most comfortable and confident in! But if you're not sure where to start, pick a style that shows off the part of your body you'd like to accentuate the most.
