Rated 5 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer I've worn Hanes's firm support panty hose starting at a tender age. The firm support took in all the desired places while giving my body a slinderness in my clothes. Today, Hanes's does even more to accommodate my needs. The firm support is just enough to alleviate the swelling from poor leg circulation. I wholeheartedly recommend Hanes's firm support panty house if you need firming body control and suffer with bad circulation. You are fulfilling two important things from one package--enhancing your appearance all around. Plus, the cost is economical. Thank you Hanes.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by ldwillard I have been wearing nothing but Alive full support pantyhose for 30 years. I love the fit but the elastic in the waist has lost its quality. They stretch out of shape and do not stay in place as they once did. I have even increased in the size I purchase but unfortunately it is the elastic that is being used - everything else remains quality.

I'm a Flight Attendant and I've been wearing Hanes Alive for almost 13 years. I loved the durability of it as I could wear it for months; it would never pull or snag and didn't get runs, like other brands. I was happy to pay the cost of it due to those factors, and would even tell others that it was worth the price. However, over the past several months I've found that a pair only lasts two wears before it develops runs and tears in, and eventually I have to throw it away. Even the feel of it has changed. It used to fit snug as a glove and was strong when you pulled them on. Now they feel so thin and I have to be extra cautious that my nails don't go through as I roll them on.

Very disappointed. Have been purchasing these hose for many years, up to a dozen pairs at a time. The control top no longer has the same level of support.
