    Due to a medical condition that I have I must wear compression stockings on my legs. They go up all the way to my thigh and unfortunatley I have one stocking that just keeps falling down. For those of you who aren't familiar with compression stockings, they are basically a really tight stocking that is suppose to help with blood flow. They are tight but like I said, one of the stockings tends to fall down a lot more as I am walking and such.

    I was wondering if any of you folks had any ideas for keeping my stockings in place? Besides Duck Tape. Lol! [​IMG]

    If it's falling down, I think you need a new stocking. [​IMG] Otherwise, well, there are always good old-fashioned garter belts!

    Sounds like you need a new stocking.
    Also dont wash them in the washer, it makes them get "loose"..
    Hand wash and hang dry..

    Garter belt would be my recommendation, but then I'd also recommend getting new stockings. [​IMG]

    Quote:X2 The one my husband wears was custom fitted and it never falls down. Don't know if yours is custom fitted or not, but it's a thought.

    I decided to get the thigh height as I would have ended up paying an extra $40 for the panty hose kind. I did have to be fitted for them. I will have to go back to the place I got them from and get a new stocking.

    Thanks all. [​IMG]

    When I wear regular ole stockings I get the thigh-high ones with the elastic that holds them up. Those always stay on for me... Maybe before you are able to get back to the place and get a replacement, you might want to wear a pair of elastic regular thigh-highs over the top? They are pretty thin so I doubt it would be a comfort issue...
