I used to wear hose and heels every freakin' day to work, I'm an expert on this topic. The best place to buy nylons hands down is JC Penny. I don't know why, but their panty hose last the longest and they have lots of sizes and colors, they also have lots of samples out so you can cop a feel before you commit. I can personally vouch for the size Q2P, sheer to toe, control top, the p is for "petite" and they are the only store I've ever seen carry petite panty hose. I do believe they also carry longs/talls, given your height that's probably what you need. There is also have a really great program at Penny's (or at least they used to) where if you buy 12, the 13th pair is free, I used to buy all 13 at the same time. They have something similar with bras, but I think it's buy 6 and the 7th is free. My other advice is to wash out your hose either by hand or on the "gentle" cycle and line dry them. Dryers are very hard on hose, shrivels 'em up and makes 'em tiny and natty. I tried thigh highs once and they had sticky lines on the back side of the elastic top, which was supposed to help keep them up, apparently I'm allergic to that stuff, because I got a rash from it and for quite a while had red lines around my thighs, not pretty.
