The Garter Tank by Kiki de Montparnasse: just what it sounds like

Garter-tank

Well, we guess this is ONE way to stop your tank top coming untucked, and, on the plus side, it doesn't involve those pesky "crotch poppers" you get on body suits, which has to be a good thing because we hate those.

On the other hand… well, suspenders don't tend to give a great line under clothes, and is the untucked tank really such an issue, we wonder? In other words, is it enough of a problem that you'd want to attach your top to your stockings, and pay $195 for the privilege?

We're going to go with "no", here. If you're saying an emphatic "YES, where can I buy it?!" though, you can get it at Shopbop. What do you think?

    It’s an…idea. Though I think with the tank top attached to your stockings, it would get stretched too tight and you’d lose any natural curve or you’d feel hunched over all the time for fear of a wardrobe malfunction. No, I think a regular garter belt is preferable.

    Reminds me of those baby undershirts that has a crotch panel that snaps up front.
    My husband would laugh at me!

    I have a Smashing Grandpa “garter tank” exactly like this, only it’s black and has the slogan “I love beautiful arrogant debauched London boys” on it in old-gold swiry retro text. It would never have occured to be to actually use the garters, though! – and I do wear real stockings a lot! I wer it over jeans or over a pencil skirt and the garter bits just hang down.

    Do they actually intend it to be worn under something though? I think nj’s lady gaga prediction is spot on.

    Picturing Lady Gaga in them reminds me of Christina Aguilera’s chaps/knickers combo …

    Y’know, I can imagine the model adding a pair of denim Daisy Duke shorts to this outfit and hanging around under a street light. It needs to be really short shorts so the garters can peep out under the hems.
