    wedge betwen the garter of his shorts - does this make sense?

    Hi all,


    I have a little problem phrasing a sentence. Please take look.


    A girl and her little brother are playing with buttons. The girl got some buttons and put them in the pocket of her shorts. The little brother got some buttons too, wanting to put them in his pocket. But the problem is, he doesn't have one. So he improvised. He "wedged" the buttons in the garter of his shorts.


    My problem is the phrase "wedged the buttons in the garter of his shorts". It doesn't sound right. What I'm trying to say is, the boy put the buttons between his belly and the garter of his shorts, with the garter keeping them in place, sort of working like a pocket. How do you say that more elegantly?

    Cheers,
    Marcus

    Welcome to the forum, curiousmarcus.

    Just change 'garter' to 'waistband'.

    A garter holds up socks or stockings. (Click)
