I'm a 57 year old man. Over twenty years ago my doctor had me start wearing graduated compression stockings for leg swelling that had gotten worse when I had to begin taking blood pressure meds. He had me wear them around the clock, only removing them to shower. As a side affect, I found that as long as I wore the compression stockings, I no longer had horrible leg cramps at night.

The custom made garments the dotor prescribed cost over $200 a pair, so for years I've been buying an over the counter brand of firm compression waist high stockings. These worked well but were thick and hot to wear.

My wife noticde your product in your catalog and suggested we try them as a lower price and perhaps lighter weight option.

I am very happy and impressed with your product. While I'm sure many would ridicule a man for having to wear pantyhose,even for medical reasons, but they provide the support I need, do not make me so hot wearing them under my clothes and they cost less than half what the other brand cost. They fit well and are much more confortable.

Please keep up the good work!

I put yes, that I would recommend these hose to a friend only because I think they give the best support of any support hose I have tried.; I tried National's non-run support hose, but they do not give the firm support I need to keep my injured legs from swelling. I WISH National would make a therapeutic support, non-run pantyhose. That would be wonderful. As it is, if you want to wear pantyhose with no runs nor holes, then these pantyhose cost about $5 per wearing. In other words, you get about three wearings and washings before they run and get holes. I wear the new ones to church, or anywhere else I wear a skirt. After they get runs and holes, I wear them with slacks. Once they get runs and holes in the ankle or foot area, I only wear them for housework and gardening. Once the runs get so big that they're not doing their job, they get pitched. I save one or two for shining shoes.

              Comments about Therapeutic Support Pantyhose by National®:

              I decided to give these pantyhose a try after reading all of the comments and trying almost every other brand of support pantyhose out there. I am a nurse and I spend almost 10 hours a day running around. These pantyhose give my legs the support they need to get me through the day. They fit fantastic, staying in place all day long. The ankles and knees don't stretch out after a full day. The pantyhose are so comfortable I usually stay in them when I change into street clothes after work. The control top gives nice support without being too tight. I like the sheerness compared to other 8-15mmHg pantyhose, and the natural shade gives my legs a nice suntanned appearance, with a hint of shimmer. Give these pantyhose a try, you won't be disappointed!

                Doctor prescribed compression stockings to treat Lymphedema resulting from prostate surgery. Tried high-priced stocking from surgical supply houses that are supposedly designed for a man. Found them thick, strangely colored and not that comfortable.
                National's therapeutic firm support stockings work very well for a man. Color is natural, so only my wife and I are even aware I have them on. Stockings have no gender. Measured correctly to my male dimensions, they wear very well and are comfortable all day long. More importantly, they reduce the swelling almost completely and make my legs feel pain-free. Price is very reasonable. I've been wearing these for several years and will continue to order from National.

                If the wearer considers that long underwear bottoms are heavier pantyhose, there's no gender issues. Great for winter wear, especially out of doors.

                        I have tried several other brands and could not get the proper fit or support. These are the best in fit, support and the price is great. You get two pairs for one third the price of one pair of some other brand. I hope this review does not cause you to raise the price.

                          I put yes, that I would recommend these hose to a friend only because I think they give the best support of any support hose I have tried.; I tried National's non-run support hose, but they do not give the firm support I need to keep my injured legs from swelling. I WISH National would make a therapeutic support, non-run pantyhose. That would be wonderful. As it is, if you want to wear pantyhose with no runs nor holes, then these pantyhose cost about $5 per wearing. In other words, you get about three wearings and washings before they run and get holes. I wear the new ones to church, or anywhere else I wear a skirt. After they get runs and holes, I wear them with slacks. Once they get runs and holes in the ankle or foot area, I only wear them for housework and gardening. Once the runs get so big that they're not doing their job, they get pitched. I save one or two for shining shoes.

                          Because I am Diabetic I was told to wear 20-30 mmHg Support hose .I am even supposed to wear it to bed to provide better circulation back to the Heart. After spending thousands of hours online Pricing Support hose National seems to have the best Price for what I need, Marty....

                            AFTER LOOKING AND LOOKING FOR A PANTYHOSE THAT WAS COMFORTABLE AND FIT CORRECTLY, I FOUND THESE. I HAVE ORDERED SEVERAL MORE PAIR SINCE MY FIRST ORDER AND WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO IN THE FUTURE. ALSO I GAVE A FRIEND A CATALOG AND SHE ORDERED THEM AND NOW SAYS HER LEGS FEEL WONDERFUL. (WHICH SHE HAS A PROBLEM WITH VARICOSE VEINS AS I DO)

                              PUT THEM ON IN THE MORNING, AND YOU NEVER HAVE TO THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO DO THE REST OF THE DAY. YOU CAN STAY HOME, WORK IN THE YARD, GO TO SCHOOL( A TEACHER) AND KNEEL ON THE FLOOR WITH THE CHILDREN, AND NEVER HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT COMFORT, TEARS, ETC. YOU THEN CAN GO OUT TO DINNER AND YOUR LEGS STILL FEEL GREAT, AND THE LOOK IS ALWAYS PERFECT.
                              I'VE BEEN WEARING THESE STOCKINGS FOR AT LEAST 20 YEARS,OR MORE, AND I STILL CANNOT DO WITHOUT THEM.

                                Due to an injury many years ago and a propensity for varicose veins, I pretty much HAVE to wear support hose. I tried National's non-run support hose but they did not give me the support I need. I WISH National would make a non-run version of 4472. These hose work well and are comfortable, but tend to run and sprout holes, often on the first wearing. I keep a bottle of clear nail polish next to where I dress so that I can paint it on the hose to keep the holes and runs from getting any worse. That's the only way I can make them last long enough to justify the high price charged.

                                    The price for the firm support hose was the reason for my purchase. I was hoping they would be as good as the more expensive one I have bought. They are just as good, and at a better price.
