I have been enjoying over the knee socks paired with patterned stockings this winter. I say stockings, but truly they are pantyhose *gasp* -I know real sexy right?! Some of us need the 'control'. I have thought of switching to a girdle but want to try them on before purchasing. I have the feeling wearing them for their actual purpose, as opposed to back when I wore them for the sexy factor, changes how I want them to fit. What about you? Do you wear a girdle? Which one and how did you find sizing? I am especially interested in hip to waist ratio because my hips (large) and waist (not so large) do not adapt to standard sizes.
