What type of tights is she wearing? Maybe she needs thicker or a bigger size. Cotton tights is the best for kids or if they don't wear beige.
I mend the holes on cotton tights.

How old is she?

My daughter (6) has many pairs of tights (we buy on sale in gap, children’s place, gymboree a’h etc) And we wash after each wear. We can usually get at least 5-7 wears out of a pair which I think is pretty good considering that she’s on the playground in them, playing on the floor etc. we usually toss one a week (from
Having a hole) so we always have a huge bag in reserve.

The cotton tights don't hold well.

Cotton tights only. Until they're really old enough to watch on them.
Wait till they wear nude in the summer. It's so frustrating.

How do you get the cotton tights to hold in place

I was talking about cotton tights. Especially in the cold. What do you mean they don’t hold well?

They fall down gradually as she is walking.

Which brand is she wearing? Some are better than others. She's also probably wearing the wrong size.
You should also hang them to try to maintain the elastic.

I don't remember which brand she wore? Which do you suggest? She is a 10 year old but she is very tall
4 ft 11. I shouldn't put them in the dryer?

Definitely do NOT put in dryer. The heat ages the elastic. Unless your dd is constantly falling or walking on her knees, the tights are probably ripping because they're too small (or poor quality).

Where are the holes? If in the crotch, they're obviously too small. If she's a bit chubby around the waist, she may be overstraining the waistband, too.

No dryer. Tights that too small tend to fall down. Ask the store what size to get her. Probably a 12 or 14. I find JRP and condor the best. Zubii is also great. The cheaper companies aren't such good quality and fit.
