I got this a while ago and have used it on extra cold days to keep my thigh-highs up and stay warm. Keeps socks from slipping down or bunching, which is a sensory nightmare for me. Doesn't take much either, and is easy to use.
Yep. All thigh highs I've tried these on really do stay on, for at least a day. Re-applying the next day doesn't work without washing the glue residues out, but that's to be expected.
I remembered my mom owning a bottle of "it stays!" to prevent wardrobe malfunctions, so I didn't hesitate to buy it for myself when it was offered as "sock glue" here... It's perfect! Only a small amount is needed for socks that stay up perfectly all day...even into the next day if you wear them to bed! Yet it wipes away easily with a wet cloth. Never causes itchiness or other issues, and it smells pleasant. The bottle lasts a very long time for me. I've recommended it to a male friend who struggled with boot socks not staying up; he ordered it and raved about how great it was!
I've tried other brands of sock glue, and this is still my favorite! Unlike the thicker formulations, like Jobst, these apply super easily with only a slight alcohol odor that fades quickly. The glue applies easily to both fabric and skin. I find that sometimes you need to be a bit more generous in applying it to the back of the thigh if you're sitting with your legs stretching the sock for long periods. But it holds all day, and when you're done, it isn't too painful to peel the sock off even if you have some leg hair (or you can wet and remove with ease).
I've got big thighs and sock do NOT want to stay up. However, this glue has been a life changer. It holds overnight too!
I find them more comfortable and convenient than garters!
