The two most common questions that people ask me are:
- How do you go to the bathroom in that?
- Should I wear my knickers under or over my suspender belt?
People seem to get quite angry at me for wearing mine under my suspension and it’s made me realise how important these two questions are to stocking wearing people everywhere.
So first things first, let me address the question of how one goes to the bathroom in a suspender belt/ girdle/ corselette.
As I often wear my knickers under the straps, I cannot simply pull them down, however this isn’t an issue. When I’m wearing a girdle, I just pull the girdle down as I would a pair of knickers. All I have to do after I’m done is pull up and readjust my stockings.
I only own 14 strap suspender belts so I do not undo every single clips each time I need to powder my nose, instead I choose one of two options; I can either treat them like my girdles and pull them down over my hips, or I can undo the joining clips at the back (they are just like bra clips).
With a corselette, I simply undo the back clips then do them up when I’m done.
It is of course a bit tricky to do up the back clips without assistance at first however, you will discover that with a little practise, it isn’t that bad.
That is how it works for me. It may be different for other women but there you go.
On to the next question; ‘Should I wear my knickers under or over my suspender belt?’
I have been looking through a few forums to see what other people think about this topic and people tend to strongly recommend one over the other, but never both. Some people recommend wearing knickers under the straps because it looks prettier, while others insist that wearing knickers over the straps suggests that the wearer is loose as it makes their private area more accessible to a potential sexual partner. I found that last comment to be slightly offensive if I’m honest.
I don’t think that the question of which layer goes on first is particularly important, I think getting the right piece of shapewear around your body and your legs into stockings that fit and feel nice is more important and to be honest, a lot more interesting.
Personally, when I wear knickers, I prefer to wear them under my straps but that does not mean that everyone else should. I would recommend trying both out and seeing how you go. If you are nervous about wearing a suspender belt because you are unsure about how to go to the bathroom, then wear your knickers over your straps, it is nobody else’s business but your own.
To be honest, I would just recommend going commando, problem solved 😉
