Plant Support Question

Hi, I am trying to get back into growing with hydro again and I have a question that I had a problem with before. I was growing tomato plants before and their growth got really out of control. The plants got so tall that I had problems supporting them. It was a constant struggle. I tried using green wire and pvc and that did not go over well. Is there a product or something you guys have rigged up on your own that I can see or learn how to do. I will buy something, but sure what I can buy for heavy plants. If you have pictures that would be helpful also. I have seen trellis looking string before, but was not sure if that is the answer or how that works or even where to buy it. Thanks.
