There is a variety of straps and devices available for holding leg bags in place and you may need to experiment with different types to find out which suits you best.
These are the standard way of supporting a leg bag and are usually supplied with them. You will usually be supplied with one pair of straps per box of leg bags, so you will need to wash and re-use them. They can be washed and reused a number of times.
They are typically made from elasticated material with hook and loop fastenings (Velcro) or buttons.
Velcro straps often have silicone strips throughout their length for additional grip.
The length can be adjusted to your leg size (you might need one strap to be longer than the other to fit the dimensions of your leg).
These pull on over the foot rather like a footless sock and provide a pocket which can hold a leg bag in place either on the thigh or on the lower leg. The lower seam of the pocket has a slot through which the drainage tap of the leg bag can be passed for emptying.
