Accepted Ideas on Garters

"Must always be worn above the knee for women of high society, below for women of the people. A woman should never neglect this vestimentary detail - there are so many brazen individuals in the world."

From "Dictionary of Accepted Ideas"
Gustave Flaubert, Bouvard and Pecuchet
translation by Mark Polizzotti, Dalkey Archive Press 2005, p.301
