During the 19th Century it was custom for a Birde to wear a yellow Garter given to her by a friend.  It was then hoped that marriage would ensure for the friend within the year!  Today most Brides like to follow the traditional folklore rhyme....."Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue" with the "Something Blue" often taking the form of the Wedding Garter incorporating a blue bow or ribbon.

Measuring for your Garter

A garter is usually worn on the right leg and from 3"-6" above the knee.  Once you have chosen your desired area take a tape measure, piece of ribbon or string and measure around the leg circumference.  See photo below for guidance. 


When you have your measurement please choose the best fit from the table below.  If your size is inbetween i.e. 20.5 inches then go with the smaller size of Medium and not the next size above.

Leg Circumference in Inches

Small 10-14 inches

Medium 15-20 inches

Large 21-26 inches

Extra Large 27-32 inches

Plus Size 33-38 inches

Please email for any other size
