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 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

Comments about Sheer Stretch Stocking by National®:

Like your thigh highs, these stockings fit great and wear well. I love the retro reinforced heel & toe. I'm asked where I got them and of course I say National! I get compliments on them when wearing sling back style shoes showing off the heel, sexy for sure!

      Comments about Sheer Stretch Stocking by National®:

      There's no higher praise I can give other than to say I absolutely love these nylons! I've been wearing these for years and gave up pantyhose a long time ago. Now wear these with girdles and firm control garter belts/waist cinchers with all my skirts and dresses, to work, church and any special/formal occasion. I hope National never discontinues these, because nylons like these are impossible to find elsewhere. My only suggestion to National if they would bring back some of the shades they used to have - namely, Suntan (or brown beige I think they used to call it? and White - you would have an instant customer in me for those shades.

                        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.

                            Utilized in cold weather due to blood thining in the legs. Staying warm.

                              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.

                                The soft black is much darker than I had imagined and would not order that color again unless I really wanted a black stocking.

                                  Stockings are so much more sexy than pantyhose.
