Vintage inspired garter belt with clasps instead of standard grips.


My sewing career began in the moment when I cut out my dad's socks to make a dress for my doll . I was about 5 then and I loved to watched my mom to sew. There was something magical to me in the way when fabric pieces are transformed into beautiful clothes.
My family is my biggest support. Without them, all this would not be possible, because besides sewing goods for the store I work double shifts six days a week so that my boys took over most of the cooking and cleaning. Nevertheless they left ironing to me.

GL Design and Coco'sRetroCloset shop is my part time business for now, but who knows...

Items are sent in bubbled envelopes.
Approximate delivery time will vary according to your location. It shouldn’t take longer than 3-10 business days if shipped to Europe; 7-20 business days if shipped to US, Canada and rest of the world, though in some rare cases it may take a little longer.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through or its related sites and services.
This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.
Information I Collect
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate
interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention
I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Gordana Lakic, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at cocosretrocloset [!at] Alternately, you may mail me at:

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalised orders

Each item from my shop can be custom made to your specifications.

Sizing details

My size scale may differ from other sellers. That’s why, in order to ensure a perfect fit, the most important information for me is your measurements.
It will be the best if you provide the measurements in the "Note to Seller" at checkout.

Care instructions

Black and white garter grip tongues are made of cloth and they become soft when wet, this is why I recommend hand-washing or washing bag if you wash in the washing machine, hang to dry.

How to wear your Coco'sRetroCloset garter belt?

Coco'sRetroCloset garter belts are made to be worn with any kind of stockings, from vintage non-stretch to thick wool winter stockings and that's why they have to be worn at your waistline and not on your hips. If you prefer to wear your garter belt lower on your hips take one size up when ordering but in that case they just might slip of.
