Garter buttons like this one became very popular in the 1920s as attitudes loosened in a post World War I America. The flapper craze saw women rolling down their stockings, a trademark fashion, and adding in a colorful garter with a fun button. These buttons often had a cartoon face like Betty Boop printed with a ribbon hanging off that read either “You’d be Surprised” or “Did You Get Yours?”
