    I have bought a good few pairs of stockings but I seem to run into a similar problem each time (when I'm not wearing suspenders). They roll down my thighs. I do have bigger thighs but I have tried getting a bigger size but they still seem to roll down.

    Anyone else had this problem and if so do you have any solutions (that doesn't include suspenders)?

    Thanks in advance :)

    Yep, have this problem too.

    I have tried wearing them lower down my legs than I would like them to be which helps a little, but not much good if I want to wear them for anything but play time!!

    I too will be interested to see any possible solutions.

    I gather the kixies are very good, but a little pricey for me.

    Are you quite tall? I'm quite short so don't really have this issue as there's not much stretch through the stockings between my toes to my thighs, this can sometimes be what causes hold ups to fall/roll down.

    Have you ever tried those leg suspenders? They can sometimes help as well as make the whole appearance look better.

    I am 5'11" so I guess that is quite tall.

    I have bought 'tall' hold ups before and they were way too long.

    Rock and hard place springs to mind!!

    Ok, this may be a silly question. But are any of your stockings actually hold ups or are you wearing suspender stockings without suspenders and finding this problem?

    I'm only asking as you mention it in your review of these:

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=12661&reviewid=153551#customer_reviews

    And they are suspender stockings; they will not stay up on anyone without suspenders, it's nothing to do with you or your thigh size they are simply not going to stay up on their own as they are not hold ups :)

    I'm tall and plus size, stockings NEVER stay up on me. I use a suspender belt or knickers with the clips even with hold ups.

    If you're wearing stockings rather than hold ups without a suspender belt, this will be your problem.

    However, if you're wearing hold ups and having this problem, it could be because the rubber has lost its stickiness, or, if you're moisturising your legs before wearing them, this won't help.

    There is a spray product you can buy that I've seen on specialist stockings websites (never used it myself as I wear stockings with a belt) but you could give that a try perhaps?

    Kixies. Amazing holdups. Pricey but SO worth it. I wear size 22 and im 5ft 9 so the fit is always awkward. Give them a whirl!

    Have you tried hairspray? i normally use suspenders so can't argue on it but my sister swears by hairspraying her thigh highs up!

    I find the hold ups with the bigger lace tops and more than one rubber bit are better to prevent that. I'm 6'4" and manage to stretch a XL pair up my thigh.

    Kix'ies are defo the solution I have thick thighs and I can wear mine for everyday wear successfully I loved them so much I bought lots of different patterns. They stay put during sex like no other hold up.

    Hi! I have the same problem, usually it's because the silicone isn't of that much quality. The best hold ups I've come across are these:
    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=33736e
    They don't even have silicone on, it's just elastic I think but they're the ones that I don't ever have to worry about them falling down. I've been using them for months now. But if you're looking for one's which aren't like that or more plain then I'd recommend kixies, they're quite pricey but if you look around and catch some offers then I'm sure that you'll be able to get them for a decent price.

    TheInvisibleTester - that link is not working for me. Could you repost? Or give the brand/item name? I'm really interested.

    Leg Avenue Fishnet Lace Top Hold Ups with Bow Detail (Black One size)
    They're fishnet stockings, which I sometimes wear out if I'm wearing a skirt or a dress and they actually look quite classy.
