Look for Less: Kiki de Montparnasse Garter Tank


Back in February, I reviewed the Kiki de Montparnasse Garter Tank and, without going into too much detail, was left terribly dissapointed.

I still really like the casually sexy look of a garter tank though, and I’ve been looking for a suitable replacement ever since. Now I’ve found two.

Etsy designer Clarebare makes an Organic Bamboo Jersey Garter Tank which is cuter than hell, sells for only $48, and comes in 4 different colors…not to mention being custom made.

Dollhouse Bettie also designs a Ribbed Cotton Garter Dress modeled off a classic Hanes tank. Available in black or grey, their version retails for $62.50.

Whatever you decide, either one is an infinitely better option than spending $150 on KdM’s “luxury” version. Click on the look for less tag to see more of these money-saving features!
