I am trying to find a functional garter belt with metal clasps for the stockings. All of the decorative garter belts I find at the "fancy" shops have these plastic-button-nub clasps which do not hold stockings for more than 2 minutes. Which I suppose is the point with decorative garter belts! However, my search has also led me to find some "old lady" garter belts, which are not particularly attractive. Do any good-looking, metal-clasp garter belts exist? I am a size 6 with a max. budget of $50. Both lacy and smoother fabrics are okay, and I'd rather find one that sits more on the hip bones than around the natural waist. Sincerely, Should-have-lived-decades-ago"
