I have bought these stockings twice in the past year to wear with my open bottom girdles (item #4519) and I think they are.terrific. It is not only hard to find nice stockings these days but it is even harder to find them to fit someone like myself who is almost 6 ft tall. These stockings have a great look, fit and feel and I would not think of buying my stockings anywhere but with National in the future.

These stockings are a good value for every day wear. They work well under slacks and well as with dresses and skirts. The sizing chart is not as clear as it could be to find the correct length. It would be nice to mix and match colors instead if getting all 6 in one color, but the price is right.

      Comments about Sheer Stretch Stocking by National®:

      These stockings are good for general everyday wear. However, they do not even compare with the dis-continued style 400, which was much, much better. They were a very comfortable stocking to wear, and I think they wore at least as well as the 900 style. One cannot argue with the pricing though, as these stockings are very reasonable in price.
      My hope, along with other wearers I've talked with, both female and male, is that you can offer the "400 style " again, as it is much sought after. Fortunately, I was able to buy up over 125 pr of them before inventory ran out.
      I'll continue to order the 900's, as they are an " rht "nylon, but really hope for all of your stocking customers, that the "400" becomes available again.
      I'd very much like to hear back from you on this,
      Thank you
      Steve

                After a long search, I found these very practical hosiery for my mother. She did not want or need "support" hosiery, just stockings that she could wear everyday with a garter belt. This product is excellent, and it meets her needs perfectly. The stockings are very durable, yet gives a healthy, classy look to the legs.

                  Since I have to wear skirts or dresses to work every day I prefer to wear stocking with a open bottom girdle or a garter belt it is so much cooler in the summertime but I do wear pantyhose in the colder weather.

                      Since 1985 I have had to wear a sacro lumbar back brace with garters so I must have regular stockings. It is next to impossible to find them anywhere but National . I have been a customer long before that date for National products. I wear these with 8 garters so they must be very durable, I could not imagine not having them.I wear them 365 days a year.

                              These stockings are a good value for every day wear. They work well under slacks and well as with dresses and skirts. The sizing chart is not as clear as it could be to find the correct length. It would be nice to mix and match colors instead if getting all 6 in one color, but the price is right.

                                    These are wonderful stockings and I am glad I found a source for obtaining such a useful product. It is hard to find quality, inexpensive stockings like these in shops these days. I love the fact that they do not have a lace top. My only (minor) criticism would be that the stocking top itself (the band where the garter clips to) could be a little bit wider. I tend to wear compression stockings most days as I am on my feet a lot but these are simply marvellous to wear as a lighter alternative of an evening or under trousers. Please National do not stop selling these!
