The question that often comes up at our boutique is: what is a waist cincher and what’s the difference between a garter belt and a waist cincher?
The garter belt and the waist cincher serve the same purpose: they have four garters/ clips to hold up stockings. But the waist cincher is usually wider and has built-in stays or bones to define the waist. It is a garment that is worn to make the waist appear smaller. A waist cincher puts the accent on the waist.
Frequently, waist cinchers come with garters – usually four, sometimes six- which are used to hook to stockings. Often times those garters are removable although occasionally some waist cinchers are designed without garters, in which case they are more of a decorative waist accenting garment.
At Aricie Lingerie, we have an amazing array of waist cinchers that will dazzle you.
