A great alternative to wearing full length support pantyhose. The Carezza support stay up stockings feature a very wide and comfortable elastic lace band with real double silicone strips to give maximum hold for all day comfort. The yarn is semi-opaque and smooth and uniform in appearance and being 70 denier these hose are fairly transparent and satiny. A medium support rating of 13-17 mmHg with a reciprocated heel for proper foot placement. Long wearing and great fit for longer legs. Made in Italy.
