Rated 2 out of 5Â by AliciaM Durability
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.
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.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Rocky5 I don't really wear pantyhose...
First time trying these and wearing pantyhose in general in a long time so maybe I didn't know what to expect. For those like me that don't really wear pantyhose:
Bought them to wear with my suit for an interview. They were like spanx, which could be good, but getting them on was the worst. Could not figure out my sizing so maybe I should have gone 1 size up. Very tight and difficult to smooth out-I got Barely Black and the color looked splotchy going up the length of my leg. Also, if I had to wear these for an entire day I would not make it because getting them back up would mean no drinking water for me as I would be afraid to go to the restroom.

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.
