    I think you have ordered lace top hold ups, which probably have like a plastic strip around the inside of the lace, so they 'stick' to your leg? They are hold ups and are not stockings. Hold ups just stick and stay put. Stockings don't have the plastic strip and need the attachements from the basque to clip in place and stay up.

    Hope this helps?

    No, the stockings that you have are correct, but this might be incredibly difficult to explain.

    Do you know how to open and close the clasps on the suspender straps? If you do, you put the top of the suspender stocking material in between the two sections, and then close it. So the material of the top of the stocking, are sort of wedged in place. I'm terribly sorry if that doesn't make sense. There are different types of clasps though, are they metal clasps, or a plastic and rubber clasp?
