"I ordered these Gloss Control Top Pantyhose when I became frustrated with some much more expensive pantyhose that lost shape within an hour of putting them on. These retain shape, fit really well, and are quite comfortable for control top pantyhose. I have them in black and bronze, and the gloss is subtle and quite attractive. I whole heartily recommend it!" — Nordstrom reviewer

"They last forever—I can wear them out in the freezing cold, and they make my legs look GORGEOUS! So, so pretty on!" — Nordstrom reviewer

"Best pantyhose! Smooths every bump, but still very comfortable!" — Nordstrom reviewer

"This light opaque tight is great if you prefer a bit of coverage for work year-round. The control top is moderate but is good enough for a long day at work." — Nordstrom reviewer

"These are by far the best nylons I've ever purchased! They have phenomenal support without messy seams or control top, making them perfect for underneath any outfit. The lace top is flattering yet firm." — Nordstrom reviewer

"I love these pantyhose! I rarely ever wear pantyhose because of the fit and feel, but these were very lightweight yet durable." — Nordstrom reviewer

"These are perfect! They are light enough [that they're] not 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." — Nordstrom reviewer


"These pantyhose are perfect! The shine and sheen are perfect. Head-turning!" — Target reviewer

"These tights are the real deal. They’re just the right hold, just the right thickness. They fit so well."— Target reviewer

"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." — Target reviewer

"So cute! Got compliments on these tights. Other pairs I've bought from this brand have snagged within like an hour, but these have lasted a few wears so far." — Target reviewer

"I always have several pairs on hand. They are the only ones I buy." — Target reviewer


"Absolutely my favorite nylons. Excellent. Hold up in the wash well. Fit amazing if you like a nice supportive feel." — Amazon reviewer

"These are perfect—worn them for years—comfortable and elegant." — Amazon reviewer

"Having just discovered these, they are my new favorite pantyhose and my new go-to pair. They're very very sheer and simply dazzling in appearance and strength. No snags, holes, or sagging either." — Amazon reviewer

"'These were as matte as they come and didn't snag once, even puttering around the house barefoot and fighting the cat." — Amazon reviewer

"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." — Amazon reviewer

"These pantyhose were actually pretty nice looking and soft. They fit perfectly and stayed up throughout the entire day." — Amazon reviewer

And now for the fun part—these are the skirts and dresses I'm pairing them with…
