Very James Bondish :)
MY NEW AND EXCLUSIVE LINGERIE 

Hi and welcome to my exclusive, French inspired lingerie, Hooked On You.
I have designed each elegant piece to match and compliment, from my bikini inspired lacy bralette and panties, to unique satin elastic suspender belts and ruffled satin with lace suspender belts, both with the new, innovative and interchangeable suspender rings available in a choice of colours, silver, gold, gunmetal and black and only exclusively available at Hooked On You.

My range is elegantly sensual with a flattering yet simple style, combined with easy to assemble suspender belts and suspender rings. The innovative suspender ring eliminates the stress of attaching suspenders to stockings as well as creating a brand new fashion statement. Hooked On You's European style stockings are available in four sizes and have a pretty hand made ribbon and diamante embellishment attached to the centre front and back of the stockings to accommodate the suspender rings.

To compliment my lingerie, I have designed a range of sensual and delicate Kimono style Robes, in short, three quarter length and elegantly long. Hooked On You's Robes are made with the finest silks and chiffons with delicate lace or satin trims. 

I design all my lingerie and many pieces are made by me and an Adelaide based manufacturer in Australia. 


PRETTY IN IVORY

Sam, our model is wearing Hooked On You's Ivory ensemble with a delicately light and soft, three quarter length Kimono style Robe with beautiful English lace trim.

Delicate and comfortable... my bikini inspired lace bralette with soft satin ribbon halter neck ties.
Matching bralette and Panties (G-string) and satin elastic suspender belt or ruffled satin with lace suspender belt including suspender rings and lace top thigh high stockings.
The satin elastic suspender has an adjustable clip at the back and can also be worn higher in the waist.


Most suspender belts are designed to be worn over panties and look unflattering if the panties are worn over the suspenders. For your comfort and obvious convenience my thoughtful range of suspenders are designed to look as though they are worn over the panties, however they are worn under panties!

Our sassy and easy to apply suspender rings are available in four interchangeable colours: silver, gold, gunmetal and black.

OK. Put on your corset and get it so the belts hand down from it. Don't lace it up tight yet. Put on your stockings and see how high the top of the stockings are. The top usually have a band that has more fabric and is a bit more durable than the sheer nylon elsewhere on the stocking. Make sure the little straps from the suspender hang down so that the clips are a little bit above the top of the stockings, I'd guess maybe about two inches on the front straps. You want the clips on the belt to be a bit above the stocking because you will need to pull it down to the stocking to clip it on so they provide the tension to pull the stocking up when you are done. The ones in the back will need to hang higher from the back of the stocking. The straps on the back will need to be adjusted so they are longer than the front ones. You need to get them to go over your tush, which is longer than just going straight down in the front. Because they are longer, you need to stretch them more to get the same tension in the strap, which is why you also want the longer straps in the back to hang higher above the top of the stocking than the front ones. I would guess the ones in the back might need to be like 4 inches above the top of the stocking. The first time you do this, you might be playing and adjusting this thing for a while to get it just right. Then you just leave the straps alone.

Now you can lace up the corset and then put on the clips. Or you can cheat and put the clips on, adjust position of your corset and lace it up. I usually cheat.

The clip usually is a metal piece with what looks like a key hole. The other piece is usually a piece of flexible plastic, like silicone rubber. It has a round button sticking out on it. How it works is the round button goes into the larger hole in the metal flat and then slide into the slot. To open it, you just slide the rubber button out to the hole and it comes out. So open up the clip by sliding the rubber part out of the flat metal clip. Pull the strap down to the top band of your stocking. Put the rubber/plastic part on the inside. There should be a little piece of satin ribbon or some fabric too on the inside so your skin doesn't rest right against the plastic. Then you bring the metal clip on the outside on top, over the stocking now covering the round plastic button. Push the button with the stocking on top into the hole in the metal hole and slide it into the slot. It should kind of tight and might be harder to do now that there's extra material, but you shouldn't rip anything. That's why the thing is made of silicone and the top of the stocking is heavier. Bring the little flaps ribbon or whatever they happen to be made and cover up the clips. Do this for all the straps. The ones behind you are kind of a pain, by the way. It takes a contortionist to do them sometimes. When you have all the clips on, just adjust things to get them to sit right and pull up your stocking evenly.

I think that's pretty much it. If your clip works some other way, then I have no idea. I've only see the kind that I described.
                                                                                                            Hmmm...  flat pack furniture instructions are easier to understand than Elisa's answer!

Is there an easy way to attach the back straps of a suspender belt to your stockings girls??

  • Claire asked 

Ok.....so call me thick? But I've just bought a really nice chimise type thing to wear for my b/f...has attached suspenders and I've bought lace top stockings. Now, fitting the little straps at the front to the stocking tops is fine....it's when I come to try and attach the back ones!!! I just can't seem to get the hook over the little circle thing.......(sorry for lack of technical terms!)........is there an easy way?..........weird question I know but not much use if can't get the back ones done too!!!! HELP girls.
Robin answered
No!

It's a nightmare, I try leaning backwards but that can be a little dangerous.

It takes practise but my god, when I first had to try it i spent about an hour trying to get it done up and was thorwing a tantrum by the time i was finished. not sexy!
Christina answered 

Not in my experience, it helps to have a supple back and good balance! All I do is pull the stockings up, and then twist round trying to bend down and around. It is very fiddly and it often takes me several attempts to get them straight. Sorry, it's not better advice, keep practicing or do what I do now and that's wear hold ups most of the time.
                                                                                                              Maybe Robin thought Claire was putting a straight jacket on...... this is funny stuff!


THE EASY TO APPLY SUSPENDER RING
This is how the suspender ring works 
(I will post a video soon) 

Our exclusive suspender rings have an inward opening arm and the stockings have a looped ribbon and diamante embellishment. Simply feed the suspender rings through the suspender straps and the ribbon loop on the stockings and vuala, it's that simple!

Remove the suspender rings, before washing your lingerie.





We have cute little gold embossed Hooked On You gift bags. Feed one through a suspender ring... a very intimate way to give a gift.






Sam, our beautiful model, is my daughter's facebook friend. I can't believe we found her on facebook. When I asked her if she would consider modelling my lingerie label, she said, "Ingrid, I trust you and I would love to, but are you sure you want me?" The pictures speak for themselves...wow! 
On the day of the photo shoot Sam was intrigued with the suspender rings and couldn't believe how easy and how fast they were to attach to the stockings and she loved the sassy look they gave to her legs. 
During the photo shoot, Sam changed suspender rings so many times, from black to silver and then gold and every time I turned to help her, she had already done so, quickly and effortlessly, even with her beautiful, long acrylic fingernails.

Thank you Sam, you were a joy to work with.
Without my family and friends, non of this would have been possible and I love you all. :)

NEWLY EXPOSED


A couple of months ago I packed up my car with my lingerie samples, mannequin and props and hit the road to Melbourne, a long 725km drive to their 3 day fashion trade show, Fashion Exposed...an experience I will never forget.

I had to leave on a Friday to set up my stall the next day, ready to display my Hooked On You label for the Sunday trade show. I had planned on leaving early, but somehow my best laid plans came undone and I finally left at 4.00pm. As I was driving, my mind was going over everything I had packed and I was hoping I had listed everything and missed nothing. I made peace with myself after leaving the traffic behind, taking in the scenery of country South Australia, listening to my favourite music and feeling relaxed I was excited about my road trip adventure!

As I crossed the South Australian border into Victoria, the sun was going down and I could see the odd kangaroo and rabbits feeding on the side of the road. I was praying a roo (short for Kangaroo) wouldn't appear on the road. A big red kangaroo can stand over 6ft in height and can cause quite a bit of damage to a car travelling at 100km/hr. Before nightfall I was overtaking trucks and road trains (trucks with double rigs) with a feeling, I had the road to myself. However, as darkness fell I didn't want the prospect of a Kangaroo jumping out and in front of my car, so I decided to keep a safe distance behind a truck and hoped (definitely not wished for), if there was anything on the road the truck would hit it first.

At 1.00am my GPS finally found the apartment! The next morning at 9.00, I had to battle my way through Melbourne's traffic and unfamiliar roads to the Exhibition Centre. My GPS kept telling me I had reached my destination but all I could see was the Convention Centre. The map I had been given didn't make any sense to me, so I drove around the block a few times and for the life of me, I couldn't see the Exhibition Centre! Eventually I pulled in to the front of the Convention Centre, only to be told I was an unauthorised vehicle and must leave... now! He was annoyed and wouldn't let me speak. I drove around the block one more time desperately looking for the Exhibition Centre and again back to the Convention Centre, where my GPS had again told me, I had reached my destination! A taxi driver got out of his car and approached mine, having witnessed my hasty exit, he asked me if I was lost as he saw my South Australian plates. He told me to follow him (it was complicated and I would never have found it, nor did my GPS!). He delivered me to the unloading dock at the back of the Exhibition Centre and wished me the best of luck..... he was so kind and restored my faith in humanity!

I was given a safety vest and trolley, found my stall and unloaded my car and began setting up. The Exhibition Centre was a place of chaos, with clothes racks whizzing by, electricians setting up lighting, forklifts driving up and down the aisles, and people unpacking and setting up. A lovely lady by the name of Severine, a business development manager for Fashion Exposed came by to introduce herself. I had previously spoken to Severine on the phone and she knew this was my first trade show. I set up my stall just like the, 'to scale model' I had created at home! Severine gave me some tips and 6 hours later I had finished setting up and was exhausted.

To my surprise a dear friend of mine, Mandy phoned  me and wanted to know if there was a spare bed in the apartment I was staying at and if I needed help! A couple of hours later, Mandy was on a plane and I was so glad she was there to support me.

The next morning Mandy and I followed my not so trusted GPS's instructions to the trade show. We met a friend of mine, Alexandra who lives in Melbourne and who was kind enough to also help me on the Sunday. The chaos from the day before was gone and Melbourne's Fashion Exposed was ready to open. I was so excited! 

Over the next two days there were fashion shows, media and so many people from all corners of the world visiting the trade show. We handed out leaflets, met and chatted to many interesting people and I was so happy to be able to show off my lingerie designs and my new concept, the suspender ring. Thanks to Mandy, I was able to leave my stall and attend a few fashion seminars. My favourite seminar was Alex Perry's, an Australian fashion designer and I was inspired by his life story and work ethic.

THE FRUSTRATION

Over the last couple of years I have heard so many stories about suspender clips. I must admit some of them have been pretty funny, but seriously how frustrating must it be when you spend ages trying to attach suspender clips to stockings?

Some women have had their night ruined by back pain, trying to attach the back suspender clips and if you've got long acrylic nails.... forget it! It's difficult enough keeping the plastic clip (the metal ones are better) in place at the front of the stocking, while your fingers have to push the rubber raised bit tight against the underside of the stockings, if you had long finger nails, you probably would have ripped through your stocking at this stage and if you were fortunate enough to have your stockings in tact then all the best of luck sliding the metal clip up over the stocking covered rubber bit. It can take quite a few attempts, but if you manage on your first attempt, then rejoice!

 If you haven't centered the straps properly, the clips have to be unclipped and redone. Does anyone have any energy left, let alone attaching the back suspender clips?

Then, when all are attached, try not to sit or bend forward too much because the back suspender clips will most likely ping off!

The vintage styles are stronger and will hold for longer but not everyone wants vintage. My Mother told me she always had to reattach a back suspender at some stage of the day or night and the occasional front one, back in the 1960's

I recently found this complaint.


Why Won't These Damn Things Stay On?

September 16, 2010 5:51 AM    Subscribe

What am I doing wrong with my garters and stockings?

I like wearing the old fashioned kinds of garter belt with the clips (plastic) with thigh-high stockings. However, they only stay clipped on for a little while before I'll bend or move too much and they'll snap off and I have to reattach them. It happens more on the back ones than the front. Why?

Here are some possibilities I thought of:

- the fabric on the stocking top is too thick for the clip
- the garters aren't long enough (I put them at the longest length)
- the garter belt and the stockings aren't meant for each other (garter belt from some store online, thigh highs from Duane Reade)
- the garter belt is super cheap and wouldn't stay clipped onto anything

Is there a special technique to gartering? Are there better ones to buy that don't have these problems? Should I try metal ones? I'm willing to spend money if there is a significant difference. Any brand or type recommendations?

I feel her frustration!

 HOOKED ON YOU TO THE RESCUE


Was there a need to do something about this? I think so, anyway I think a change is great!

That's why I came up with the innovative suspender ring, some sass for your legs! They are so easy to attach to my tagged stockings and  are so reliable and wont come off until you want them to.


The stockings have a decorative, permanent ribbon and diamante embellishment. This acts as a guide for the suspender ring, which has an inward opening arm and will definitely hold secure until you remove them.

The centred embellishment adds a pretty finishing touch to Hooked On You's thigh high and stay up range. No more fiddling and adjusting, our suspender straps will always stay level! Our stay up stockings can be worn with or without a suspender belt.

The suspender rings are available in 4 different interchangeable colours: gold, silver, gunmetal and black to compliment your lingerie and jewelry accessories.

Thank you for the great feed back, it's been crazy, in a good way and for those of you that haven't experienced Hooked On You's suspender rings and would like to ask some questions, please email me on ingrid@hookedonyou.com.au 

Thanks and kind regards
