Hanes Smooth Illusions Ultimate Contouring Pantyhose
BEST nylons EVER!
When my local stores quit carrying this brand I almost died. Now I ONLY order from this company and ONLY this brand. EXTREMELY happy. Sometimes they may take a while to get to you but for the most part I've never had ANY issues. EXTREMELY happy!!!

I wore to work today under a pantsuit with pumps.
Not sheer enough to wear with strappy heels.
I love the way they feel especially the control top!
I wish Silk Reflections came this Control top.

These are like tights
These are very thick like tights and they look awful. I like the way they fit and the support was great though. I ordered the barely there color and they were nearly orange on my legs. At first I thought I would try them and I went outside in the sunlight and I went right back in and took them off. I'm returning them.

Almost As Good
Several years ago, Hanes made a Contouring Panty Hose that was phenomenal. The panty part was stretchy but strong and really held in one's tummy. The elastic in the legs was also excellent, as close as you could get to compression hose and still be fashionable. They were so good that when wearing them on an airplane, you never had that feeling on takeoff that the blood was rushing to your feet. I was really bummed when, suddenly, they were no longer available. I looked everywhere, including eBay, to find them, but couldn't, and nothing else being sold was even close. I don't recall when I discovered this product, but was pleasantly surprised at how much better support these gave than any other hose available. Although they can't compare to the previous ultimate hose Hanes used to make (for example, on my last airplane trip, during the takeoff and the flight, I felt the blood rush to my feet and pretty much stay there, uncomfortably, until we landed), these seem to be the next best thing. The panty part offers adequate compression, but the legs are standard hose strength, with not much support. I'd like to see Hanes once again offer a panty hose with enhanced support. Until then, I'll be looking for a not-so-fashionable compression hose for those occasions when I'm on my feet for extended periods of time or flying.
