I'm pretty sure my crotch isn't at my kneecaps.

My tights won't stay up. Help! Is this a sizing issue? A quality issue?

I'm a 5'5", 135 lb female person who likes short skirts and tights underneath. Unfortunately almost every pair of tights I've owned seems to send the crotch in the direction of my kneecaps, taking my look from lean and leggy to waddling and mooning. I generally wear the second size in, in any brand of tights and I like opaque tights best. I've never bought super expensive tights, just the $20-ish ones.
This problem must have to do with the age of the tights, as the older they are, the quicker they fall, however despite hand washing my brand new pair of tights already wants to sit at mid thigh instead of my waist.
If it helps I have a really curvy figure, with huge hips and a shockingly narrow waist. (38" hips, 26" waist) Can anything be done or am I doomed to thigh highs and garter belts?
Do I need a size up? A size down? A special size? Got a good brand that doesn't do this? Any anwer is a good answer.
