Rated 5 out of 5Â by Drummergirl Last through many washes
I am 5' 7" tall and weigh approximately 135 lbs. My biggest problem has always been length in stockings. I have long legs. I used to purchase another brand of stockings from another store until they discontinued them. It took awhile for me to find stockings that had all the features I wanted until I tried these Hanes stockings. They have the leg support that I am looking for and at a decent price. The only thing that I would like is if they were longer. I buy a larger size than I need to get the length, but I still have to really stretch them to get them to fit.
Other than that I am happy with the stockings.

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 4 out of 5Â by HappyKohlsKat Nice Legs!!
These pantyhose are nice. Legs look terrific in them, thighs are held tight!! I only wish the control top was as good as the leg support. I'm 5"5" , 150 lbs and I ordered the C for that size (border line to next size). I had to work them on from the toe, up each leg. I wish I had gotten the next size up. But once on, I was happy. My next pair I will size up to the D. The color was "Little Color" which was perfect for Spring without a tan. I give 4 stars due to the Control Top.
