Over the knee boots and the dreaded slippage

I have them most gorgeous topshop suede over the knee boots which are comfortable and flattering. I love them! The only issue is they slide down my legs when I walk so after 5 minutes they're basically down by my ankles. I don't have skinny legs- -am a size 12 and they feel like they fit IYSWIM but they just slide down my legs. Have this problem in jeans and tights etc. Does anyone have any ideas how to keep them up? I keep them stored in their box with boot shapers when not wearing them, so they're not getting stretched out. I've googled this and the only suggestion is to make a garter belt loop (WTF) and clip them to a garter belt (who wears one of these things anymore??!)

Tit tape round the top?

Just marking my place as I have this issue too. Embarrassingly it often only happens with one boot blush
Tit tape wouldn't work on mine I don't think as they're a loose style if that makes sense, you pull them on rather than zip.

Dunno. I have some OTKs that slip down a bit, but never this much. Depends on the style of the boot, but I've noticed some in the shops now have a tie-fastening at the back. See picture. If you were handy with a sewing machine you might be able to adapt them.

Failing that, go for the suspender belt and channel your inner Cher!

I've got some but they tie up at the back so they don't slide down.

I've posted these before but they won't slip Dow

Can you not stitch a ring of "silicone elastic" around the inside top edge , ? It's very grippy, often used in "hold ups" and strapless bras..comes in lots of colours..?

That's really bad! I have a Tamaris pair, and they don't slip at all. They are suede, and they seem to "grip" on.

How long have you had them for? Can you take them back? They aren't really fit for purpose.

They're Topshop- had them a year but the slippage has only got really noticeable now!

Think silicone ring is best idea- going to also take them to cobblers see if they can do anything!

I think the Cher stockings suggestion is just grin
