I own a pair of garter rolls and have to say that they aren't very effective for me. This may be because I am a size 18. Perhaps they would work better on someone with a smaller upper leg.

Oops, I forgot to say that my garter rolls are vintage which could make a difference in the construction as well.

Excellent post. Do you have instructions for peeing while wearing a garter belt? I prefer thigh-highs to pantyhose, but the issue of going to the bathroom is a tricky one. I've worn my panties OVER them with some success, but if the garter belt is heavy-duty enough to be practical (not one of those lacy little fredericks things) it's too big to comfortably wear underwear with.

I have to ask because I found a sale on vintage stockings (probably 1960's), some with original boxes, back seams, foot-shaped, the whole bit...for like, $1 a pair. I'll never forgive myself if I don't capitalize on this.
