Hanes Smooth Illusions Ultimate Contouring Pantyhose
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.

Thought this was going to be a full slip body sharper but when the product came it was the nylons with control top, will use so kept the nylons.

Best pantyhose I have EVER tried
These pantyhose smooth you our and stop any jiggling. You can wash in the washing machine as long as it is in a lingerie bag and you can where them over and over. They last so long.
