Buy some light-compression support socks, like people wear for varicose veins. I’m a fat guy with fat calves, and my over-the-calf dress socks would always fall down, usually because they only have a narrow band of elastic at the top that quickly stretches out. Support socks are elastic from top to bottom and are designed specifically to grip onto the leg and stay in place. You can buy ones that look just like dress socks in colors like black, blue, and brown. Even the light-compression ones grip firmly. I even asked my doctor if it’s okay to wear them when I don’t need them, and he said that not only would do no harm, it might even help my legs feel less tired if I spend a lot of time standing. Also, I’ve been wearing these for years now, and I’ve never had a pair wear out or get any holes. It’s like they’re made of Kevlar. The only problem I have with them is that I’d like some in olive green, but I can’t find any in that particular color.
