I use open toe compression thigh highs… not the same thing but functional and they tend to stay up fairly well and don’t require a garter belt. Of course a garter belt does look very feminine and sexy!
I’ve had best results with NuVein Medical Compression Stockings, 20-30 mmHg Support, Women & Men Thigh Length Hose, Open Toe, Beige, X-Large, NV4468BG-XL, Sold by: Amazon. As you stated, these don’t work well with a garter belt.
I will caution you, though, they require some effort to put on and off as they are compression stockings!
As for actual stockings, I really like the Mila Marutti from Amazon. They come in a variety of colors and really look great!
