Stockings and suspenders!

I am 33 years old, and I've just about had it with tights. I spend most of my day pulling the bastards up.

I'm thinking stockings and suspenders might be the answer (tried hold!).

Where can I get them from? I don't want Anne Summers-type ones - I want to wear them in the day, not just to be ripped off, iykwim. That said, I don't think any Nora Batty!

Any ideas where to start looking??

Try Calzedonia - they're hosiery specialists.

Get a proper 6 strap one. Always wear your suspender belt under your knickers.

You need proper suspenders with eight metal clips (four per leg). Immediately disregard plastic clips or only three per leg.

Look at What Katy Did and Kiss Me Deadly and don't be put off by the slightly gothy styling of the latter. They know their stuff and make suspender belts and girdles to be worn all day.

SORRY - six metal clips, not eight.
