Droopy crotch. Help!

I am wearing a lovely navy jersey dress and purple tights. I look nicer than usual. But the bloody droopy crotch of the tights is driving me insane. I've laddered them already from hoiking them up so many times. I am 5'4 and a size 12/14. I think my problem is that the tights are m and s small/medium and are maybe too short but then surely I don't need large/ extra large?
Last year I had a fab pair of footless tights from m and s but they don't seem t d them anymore.
Any suggestions?

Pants over your tights. Not sexy but saves my sanity with some tights.

I will try that this afternoon as otherwise I will have to change my outfit. So annoying

I am tallish (5 foot 8) but mostly leg, and I always wear XXL tights although the measurements would suggest they should be too big (I'm fat, but thankfully do not quite have 52 inch hips!).

What doesn't stretch sideways stretches lengthways. Pants over tights is so uncomfortable and might give you thrush <voice of experience> Much better to just go up a hosiery size!

How about fillling the droopy area with your keys, purse, hanky, lippy etc. It'd fill the unsightly bulge an you won't have to carry a handbag?

Lol bubble moon. Luckily dress is not too short otherwise i would actually have hosiery crotch on display!

Never thought about pants over tights.

My tights kept slipping down yesterday. I discreetly pulled them up in the DVD aisle in Asda, they ripped sad

I've never had a thrush problem. You do wear pants under the tights as well!
