Why are my leggings falling down?

If I buy a smaller size they are super tight and fall down. If I buy a bigger size they fall down as I walk.

Not completely fall down. I have a dress on and I do not think that others can tell.

I am just wondering... do I have the wrong size?

Mine fall down too. I always think it's because I have a flat butt.

That's what I've always thought was my issue. I have that issue with tights and leggings. If I buy according to the size charts, they are baggy in the butt and too long . . . and they walk down. If I go down a size, they aren't baggy, but they still walk down. I blame my flat butt for not giving them anything to grip.

I do not have a flat butt at all. In fact, DH jokes that he could set a beer on it. That said, I also don't have that issue with leggings falling down.

Mom always told me to wear panties over your hose or leggings to keep them from falling down. It works. But, it's not useful if you want the "no lines" look.

No other suggestions. I have the same exact problem.

I have a big round butt and my leggins always fall...i was blaming it on my butt being big but after reading people with flat butts also have the same issue, then i don't know what to do.

I am with Cu5i. I am small, but with hips and a larger butt, and I have the same exact issue. I thought the same thing: it was my larger hip/butts.

I'm glad this seems to be a universal problem because it means there must be some fix to it.

So far the suggestions I've found are:

Legging brand loyalty (though no one says which brands)
Replacing the elastic with round elastic from the craft store.
Wearing underwear (or spanx for no lines) over them
staple them tight (at either side of the hip)

I haven't worn leggings or stockings in many years.. but I do recall that I always had issues with sagging/bagging/falling more in winter than in summer.. and often wondered if it had to do with the temperature... ???
