How do ladies keep pantyhose waist bands from rolling down?

Following knee and leg surgery, the doc told me to wear medical hose to increase circulation. They were like pantyhose, but more expensive. They kept rolling down, and I kept tearing them up. I decided to try support pantyhose, with longer legs. They work just as well and are cheaper (and more comfortable). . The trouble is, all I can find is "control top" in my size and the panty keeps rolling down to my belt line. Not very comfortable. How to ladies keep the panty in place?

  • You could try like putting on underwear over the pantyhose and maybe that will help but it has to be tight underwear. I don't know just trying to help!

    might sound weird but you could try it

    • I tried your advice and it works. WAL-MART sells a stretch panty that is tight, made by Vassarett. It was a little weird, but it works. Thanks again.

    • Your welcome

      happy I could help

  • Yeah, they stay for me too. It's probably got something to do with waist:hip ratio. Womens' support pantyhose are designed for a body with larger hips, and this may be causing some of the problem. I'd talk to your doctor and see if you can get any further recommendations there.

  • I have no problem with mine staying up.

  • Pull your hose up as high as you can. Then, fold the top back down so that the "new top" is at your normal waistline. Small safety pins can help "hold". If you don't pull them tight all the way up to the crotch they will feel "saggy".

  • I think part of it has to do with the way our bodies are shaped. They just stay on me.

  • Us girls have a waistline and hips that widen out from that point. I guess it helps to have a decent butt too. LOL.

  • Sounds like miss anon was right on the money, my other thought was you can try a garter belt
