White/ivory tights/stockings for a tall person with big hips/thighs

I need some tights to go with a white dress - am v. pale so 'nude' tights always look like I'm wearing half a fake tan application. And tights seem to be made for either 'tall' or 'large' - not both - and 'one size only' is not mine.

Ideally I want white micronet tights or stockings, but would take regular if these are hard to come by! I'm a 34" inside leg and an 18, but struggle to get trousers/jeans to fit because I'm a very curvy shape, and I think this is why tights tend to be a literal pain in the arse.

I don't have any useful advice, just sympathy as another person who is both tall and wide. Why can't we have tights that fit???

Have you ?

They have a good range.

I did have a look - wondered if there were any recommendations, though!

The Big Bloomers Company do white micronet, but their sizing is 20+ so I'm not sure how they will fit.

The Big Tights company has champagne lace topped stockings. Only available in a 20 or 36, but I guess you'd have extra length then. Only black in fishnets though.
