Fishnet hold-ups
Rubber stockings from Westward Bound

A hold-up (US: thigh-high stockings) is a type of stocking designed to stay up without the use of suspenders. This is achieved by having a tight band of latex on the inside of the stocking top.

While such stockings are easier to put on than normal ones because they dispense with the need to put on a suspender belt and fasten the suspenders, many people dislike them because they lack the visual impact of normal ones.

Another way to get stockings to stay up is to use garters (in the British sense).

Stockings made of rubber can often stay up by themselves, so can be regarded as hold-ups.
