I bought myself a garter belt and some stockings to go with it recently. The garter belt is fine (a plain, black-satin, six-strap number), but the stockings ("Leg Avenue" brand) are a bit short, and don't look like they'll survive a full-day wear (or even a date night). I was surprised that I couldn't find many plain stockings in my local department stores (even though there are plenty of undergarments with garters!), and the few I found were either "one size" or "one size/queen size" (I went with "queen", hoping that would fit my "healthy" thighs ;-).
Do any of you have recommendations for traditional stockings? I'm looking for somewhat larger sizes (I'm 5'9", 180lbs., and a lot of those pounds are in my thighs), in black and nude colors.
