Does anyone have a source for thigh-highs that fit those of us with fat thighs? I consistently have problems with them digging in and rolling down. And while I don't mind having above-the-knee tights, for warmth and coverage I'd like to have some actual thigh-highs!

I'm eyeing hopefully some of the ones at Sock Dreams, but I wouldn't mind having more than one site to look at. Or retail stores, if there're any you're aware of. :)

I don't have anything I can really recommend from personal experience, but Sock Dreams is really good at naming the brands that they are selling, and one could search on that.

Also, there are garter belts/suspender belts. The modern plastic clips are often crap, but a good brand will usually use better plastic, or one can buy better-quality findings (or ventage metal ones) on ebay, etsy, or some of the sewing webstores. (You may also have a local one that's good, but I wouldn't trust a fabric chain...)

WeLoveColors just recently become my number one tight place—they have a selection of knee-highs and thigh-highs.

And I also second [personal profile] daedala's Ebay mention—set up a saved search and Ebay will email you when it finds things that match your criteria, whether it be garter belts or the tights themselves.

I know this is super old, but I wanted to say that Sock Dreams also carries sock glue, which I love for keeping up thigh highs (I have large thighs and calves, so I also use it for over-the-knee socks of any kind.)
