One size that fits only the plus sized girls

This is a “one size fits all” narrow lace garter and fishnet stocking set ONLY for the plus sized. The belt will be too big/stretchy for girls smaller than XL. The garter and stockings feel well made, and the set is offered in two colors: white and red. I chose the red which is a deep and rich shade that will turn heads.

extremely useful review
I had some doubts about requesting this garter belt and stockings set for my first assignment since it was “one size fits all.” I was concerned as to whether it would end up being too small for me, but the gorgeous, bright red color convinced me to give this set a try. The set includes a garter belt and stockings. The thong shown on the product page is not included in the set.

Material
The stockings are fishnet with the usual, standard sized “loops.” They are smaller in the toe area which makes that area somewhat reinforced. This is definitely a plus in use as your toes (and toenails) will poke out a little bit less and give the stockings some longevity.





The top of the stockings have a 3.5 inch wide, stretchy, lace top with an elastic “band” sewn in about 3 inches down from the top. There is no silicone band on these stockings, so a garter belt is a must to keep them up (the elastic band was not enough for me, at least). The lace on the belt and the stockings is very soft. It won't irritate or scratch the skin.

The garter belt is very narrow, and it sits low on the hip, so it won't cover any “problem areas” one might have. The lace is floral pattern you see in most laces these days. It’s very standard stuff.

What caught my eye was the slight difference between the red shade on the garter and the stockings. The shade on the belt seems to be a notch bluer, but this is a VERY slight difference, and I suspect that most people won't even notice it (my camera did pick it up). I only did because I compared them side by side. Obviously, it is kind of unnoticeable in use since there's some skin in between the fabrics, but I thought I should mention it anyway. I see it most in the garter strap satin that will connect to the stockings.





On the cardboard (aka “box”), it says “100% nylon.” The tag on the belt, however, states “87% Polyamide, 13% Elastane Excluding trims.”

Size / Design
I'm about 5'4 tall and usually wear size 12 (or medium for underpants). My hips are 41 inches at the widest part (on my butt). On the box it says it should fit “5'-5'10 (100-175lbs).” I should fit right in, but as I mentioned earlier, I was concerned whether this set would be too small for me since it's only offered in the infamous “One size fits all” size. Boy, was I wrong. The garter belt is in fact TOO BIG for me! The belt is super stretchy and will sit low on the hips. Not stretched, it's 17 inches across at the smallest. I would say it can be stretched to 23 inches easily. The back of the belt has three bra strap-type clasps that can add another inch to the belt.





Here’s the only problem I have with this set. The belt is just too darn big for me, so it falls very low on my hips. When I add the stockings, they kind of weigh the belt down a bit, and it slides further down on my hips. The stockings are good fit for me, but I can pull them right up to my crotch as well. You can see in the photo above that the stockings are around 19 inches not stretched (from the box).


Some measurements on the belt:
Belt not stretched at the smallest clasp: 17 inches across
Belt stretched at the smallest clasp: at least 23 inches across
Garter strap front: 3-6 inches
Garter strap back: 4.5-9 inches





The garter straps are not detachable, and the clasps are the usual kind with the rubbery back you need to slide into the clasp. Some effort needs to be made to clasp them to the lace on the stockings.


Packaging
This set comes in your typical hosiery packaging: the plastic covered cardboard sleeve. The sleeve shows the product in black on a model. It's not really meant for long term storage, but I guess you could fold the set in the sleeve to keep your drawer more organized.

Cleaning
On the sleeve, it states “hand wash in 30 Celsius,” but on the belt tag it reads “40 Celsius. Gentle hand wash only. Wash deep colors separately.” Since I haven't used this set much yet, I can't tell you how it will hold up. I would at least wash the stockings by hand.
Experience
I can't see how the belt would fit a woman smaller than XL. I plan on doing some alterations to it to see if I can make it smaller so it will fit me better. I would give this set 3.5 stars as it is, mostly because it doesn't fit correctly and for the slight color differences, but if you're plus sized and looking for a narrow garter belt set with fishnets, this might be good for you.

    Thanks for the review! I've come across a lot of "One Size" hosiery recently that I put on and wonder how people at the bottom of the size range can even keep it on, since I weigh 250 and can use some of the pantyhose I've got as a bodystocking. Not sure what that's about, but I don't mind!
