Suspender belts are a staple for regular stocking wearers. Although I adore wearing firm and structured girdles, I also have lazy days which have me reaching for a six strap suspender belt. This style of easy-to-wear suspension seems like a simple concept, yet it can be a struggle to locate a good supplier of suspender belts. And when I say ‘good’, I’m referring to all of the characteristics mentioned in this post. If you can’t be bothered to read that post, then let me boil it down to two things that I absolutely demand of my suspender belts:
- Thick suspender straps
- A deep belt
The rest is negotiable if push comes to shove, but I really do value these two aspects of a suspender belt.
Along the years of wearing, researching and blogging about foundations and stockings, I have met and spoken with quite a few lingerie brand owners. It needs to be said that the owner of Nylon Dreams is an absolute gentleman. This doesn’t add value to the suspender belt, this is true, however I really like to draw extra attention to company owners who are kind.
Anyway, back to suspender belts. The garment in question in this blog post is the six strap power mesh suspender belt by Nylon Dreams. This belt comes in three colour ways – Black, white and red. Since discovering how much I love light coloured underwear and stocking up far too many pieces in white, cream and peach, as well as having a pile of black underwear from my ‘black underwear only’ days, I thought I would change things up a bit and try the red version.
I usually end my blog posts with the topic of size, however I feel that it is important to draw attention to the huge range of sizes available in this style of garment, but also many of the garments available on the online Nylon Dreams store. This suspender belt ranges from XS to XXXXL, which is, in my opinion, bloody amazing! Many other brands don’t even go past an L. Catering to larger sizes is very important, everyone deserves to be able to wear beautiful underwear! I am wearing size M, for reference.
Now, on to the belt itself. As I mentioned, I need to have a deep belt and thick suspender straps – Tick and double tick! But the thing that drew me to this belt was the lightness of it, the main section of the suspender belt is made of powermesh. It is wonderful for hot summer days, and boy have I suffered through those, here in Australia! Although we are coming into winter now, I wanted to get my hands on it for those lazy days I mentioned at the beginning of the post. For those coming into summer, I recommend grabbing a belt right now in preparation for warmer temperatures.
How much does this belt cost, I hear you say? Well it is honestly a bit of a steal at 24.50 GBP which converts to around $48 AUD. Yep, it’s a bit of a bargain.
As with all of Nylon Dreams’ garments, this is beautifully constructed and flawless in its finish. Maybe one day, they will make an eight, 10, 12 and 14 strap version! All in good time. In the meantime, I think I will be adding the white and black versions to my underwear drawer.
