Pantyhose are, regardless of where you live, an essential because the transitional temperatures can make it a challenge to go completely bare-legged when wearing your favorite dress or skirt.

"Best pantyhose! Smooths every bump, but still very comfortable!"
"These are hands down the best shaping hose I've ever worn! A wardrobe essential."
"Worth every penny. Sleek and just the perfect fit for waist-to-hip ratio."
"I have been buying these stockings for years. They are the ultimate in making your legs look nude with the smoothness of the stocking."
"Best Spanx around and great price. Perfect! Use daily for work. Love, love, love."
"These are perfect! They are light enough to not be hot during summer and strong enough to do their job. They keep you nice and smooth under clingy dresses and jumpers without any lines. I will definitely be buying them in black."
"I like this control top hose product. I was able to get smoothing coverage without a lot of 'muffin top' from the band. They did not run and were silky and comfortable on my legs, which is important because I run around on my feet all day."
"I thought these would be like old-school pantyhose or something, but it turns out they fit well and were super comfortable! I bought four packs!"
"I always have several pair on hand. They are only ones I buy."
"Wow, I am so impressed with these stockings. Fits great and firmly holds my legs. In fact, I find my legs are more energized when I'm wearing them. Also, I noticed they do not get runs as fast, and if I should get a tear, it does not expand to the point I cannot use them anymore."
"Absolutely my favorite nylons. Excellent. Hold up in the wash well. Fit amazing if you like a nice supportive feel."
"These are perfect—worn them for years—comfortable and elegant."
"It is really really good! I used it the day that it arrived and really loved the support and the silky feeling. No doubts that I'll buy it again when I'm done with the six that came in the package."
"I like these tights. They are just what I was looking for. They make my legs look shapely and smooth."
