Yes, to get that look, you'll need a garter belt.

Usually a "garter belt" is what comes with the straps already attached.

The straps is if you already have something sturdy to attach it to, like a corset like the picture on etsy.

No, it won't work if you attach it to your underwear. It's too stretchy (Yes, I've tried lol)

Go to Amazon and punch in "garter belt" and you'll find plenty that work.

Generally, they go on over top of your panties/underwear. They will have either two straps per leg or three straps per leg.

There exist underwear that have attachment points for garter straps, but generally the garter belt is a separate piece. As mentioned above, some corsets and girdles have attachment points for garter straps.

If you need to try something on or want in-person assistance, you could try a place like Frederick's in the mall.
