Hi!
I'm looking into making my garters more wearable and getting some silicone-tape to make them not sliding down when wearing.

Does anyone have any experience about this? I would like some kind of double-sided tape since I want them to fit and sit on leather, elastics etc. Or maybe some glue-ish which you're putting on and getting a silicone-finish?
I have no idea about what I should get and I've googled this without getting any good result, which I figured it would be great to ask some experienced crafters like you guys!

xoxo

I don't know how well it would work on garters (though it seems like it would make them cling to stuff), but you can get clear silicone glue in a tube.  If you use a lot, big tubes and cylinders are available as caulk in the paint department of most hardware stores.

Latex might also work, but it's a milky color--you can tint it a bit with acrylic paint or universal tints.

There's also a product made to go on the bottom of home made kid's slippers.  Probably also latex, haven't really checked it out.

Silicone tape sounds interesting, would love to know more!

Oh, latex! Why haven't I thought about that?!

I'll look into this silicone glue and see how it will work out!

And yes! I've heard about silicone tape, but I'm not actually sure that it's existing for fabrics?

I'm looking into this kind of silicone-strips which is seen on bras without straps etc.
