    I had mine on my left leg but never thought about whether it is meant to be on a certain one.

    Just found this.........

    The function of a garter is to hold up stockings on the bride’s legs. Therefore, there is no correct leg to wear it on. You may choose to wear your garter on either your left or your right leg based on your personal preference. Many brides choose to wear two garters: one to toss, and one to keep. If this is the case, you should wear both garters on the same leg with the tossing garter placed lower than the keeper garter. The most important thing is to make sure your partner knows which leg it’s on so that he can retrieve it easily when the time comes.

    I'm only having one garter and there is no way in hell that my other half is taking my garter off in front of a room full of people haha, I've found one I like so just about to order it and have measured my thigh and it's bigger than what the size of the garter is! Now it's not a problem with ordering the garter as she can make it bigger but must admit it has upset me a bit as I know I have large thighs but didn't really think of it until tonight :( so have decided to get on my exercise videos haha. Thanks ladies :) I haven't been on this group for ages but glad I can just come back and ask my silly questions knowing that you guys are here x

    Ha ha ha Danielle.....



    I'm not bothered about wearing one to be honest.... I think it might irritate my leg and I have large thighs so would be conscious of it!

    I think I'd wear mine on my left leg, but not sure why! I have one but not sure if I'll be wearing it, it might be too big under my dress and I have visions of it just annoying me the whole day, so might not bother. If I do wear it I'm definitely not letting OH take it off... definitely staying under wraps!!!

    Agree with everyone else about not having OH take it off.
    When I have worn one before has always been right leg assume because I am right handed but never thought of it making a difference.

    I think I tried mine on on my right leg but I would go with whichever is more comfortable. And I agree OH will not be taking it off in public. X

    I'm thinking left too. Won't show OH until we're in private but I am looking forward to wearing mine, if I feel it during the day will just be reminded of the finale later ;) x
