A busy mum has invented the world’s first suspenders to be held up by poppers.
Ella Vine, 32, now wears her super convenient popper suspenders on the school run and every day to work.
She struggled with a medical condition called Fybromalgia in the early days of her business, causing her to experience severe fatigue and spontaneous bouts of severe pain.
Ella has now secured the rights for her unique idea across the whole of Europe.
While running her suspender business, Ella also works with a charity supporting Fybromalgia, a condition which causes extreme uncontrollable pain throughout the body.
She said: “I started with little or no money, and only really started making these stockings because of the pain I experienced with my battle with Fybromalgia.”
She said: “I have to wear compression hosiery for medical reasons and invented poppy suspenders simply because the traditional fastening was too difficult and it took too long to attach stockings to a suspender belt.
“I wanted to help not only myself, but also other women.
“Now I can also attach hold ups to a suspender belt, which gives it extra comfort and staying power.
“It took me two years and many prototypes of different fastenings until I arrived at the simplest solution – poppers.
“The simple is often the best.”
Ella opened her online luxury lingerie store as a birthday present to herself on 24th April earlier this year.
Her patented fastener garter belts can be bought from her web-shop for £25, with stockings starting at £12 a pop.
Since then she has taken her luxury laces from her hometown in Thurrock, Essex, to a pop up store in Notting Hill Gate, London, and all around the world to wholesale enquirers.
