1. How to Attach Stockings to Suspenders

    Not only do suspender belts hold your stockings up during the friskiest of trysts and the most energetic stripteases, they also boost your lingerie's sex appeal to eye-watering levels.

    However, if you aren't careful when you clip, you might find yourself with your stockings round your ankles before you've made it to first base.

    We've put together a handy guide to help you master a perfectly put-together look.

    Above: Find out how to attach stockings to suspenders in this video from lingerie expert, Sammi Cole.

    Step-by-step guide to suspender belt success

    • First thing first... Put on your stockings! (This may seem obvious, but if you're wearing structured lingerie that's not that easy to move around in, putting them on will be a lot harder.)

      If you've never worn stockings before, just roll them up your leg like you would a pair of socks.

    • Put on your suspender belt or lingerie with attached suspender straps.

    • Undo the suspender clip at the end of the suspender strap, by pushing the rubber nub that's at the back up and through the widest point of the frame at the top (watch the above video for a close-up).

    • Take the top of your stockings and, starting with the front strap, move it between the rubber bit at the back of the suspender clip and the metal or plastic frame at the front. For suspender belts with 6 straps or more, start with the straps at the sides.

    • Push the rubber nub through the widest part of the frame at the front, with the stocking in between. Done!

        3. Eye-poppingly sexy and designed with seduction in mind, many basques, bustiers and corsets feature suspender straps. Some are removeable, while others are attached and form part of the shape, like the merry widow style.

        4. If you still think stockings and suspender belts are a faff and would rather not bother, you can still get the effect with suspender pantyhose, a no-fuss alternative that's just as sexy.
