Review: Veronica Varlow’s Danger Dame Leopard Garter Panty
Above is the Leopard Garter Panty from Danger Dame. The website doesn’t have specs, but they’re made of a velvet-like material, with a low-rise (straight across the hips on me), full coverage front and boyshort, cheeky cut back. Four black garters, slightly adjustable, with black plastic clips and black plastic tabs. Two black ruffles in the front and back are aligned with the garters. The panty is available in sizes S-L, fitting waist measurements 24-32, and costs $28.00USD/pair.
First things first…if you need a cute undergarment for a night out, a photoshoot, or the boudoir, the panty above is a good choice. The velvet material is soft to the touch, and the knicker evokes that classic, pinup spirit. I think it would look perfect with a pair of topless (weltless) fishnet stockings.
However, if you like sturdy support for wearing your stockings all day long, this panty is not for you. For one, the garters are only minimally adjustable. As you know, I prefer to wear my stockings high on the thigh, and I couldn’t adjust these any higher than mid-thigh which made me feel as if my stockings were about to fall below my knees any minute.
In addition, wearing them so low made the welts visible when I sat down in a knee-length skirt, and I dislike that kind of exposure. Furthermore, the garter tabs and adjusters are made of flimsy plastic; I honestly could not see these lasting more than a few hours without breaking off and possibly tearing your legwear. Finally, the panty was cut a bit small. I have a 28″ waist and ordered a size medium, but it felt uncomfortably snug. If you have a larger waist-hip differential, you may want to consider going up a size.
In summary, these panties work just fine for what they were probably intended to do, which is look sexy and be seen for an hour or two,. But if you’re looking for a daily wear alternative to the traditional garter belt, this isn’t it.
