The best pantyhose is a matter of opinion. Here are some of them: Although I still love Hanes pantyhose, I have found a new brand. I just purchased a pair of Donna Karan Sig…nature Control Top pantyhose (nude) and these pantyhose are just beyond words. I love the look and feel of the pantyhose. I was a little surprised when I took them out of the package and they looked like they were never going to fit. However, when I slid them over my legs, I could tell that I would become a devoted DK wearer. I plan on buying more. These pantyhosed legs look absolutely flawless and awesome in these pantyhose. .
Berkshire are definitely nice but I have to admit I think the best pantyhose for the cost is Hanes. Hanes Silk Reflections are absolutely beautiful and make my legs look more awesome than they already are. Hanes also has day/business sheers that I wear as well (the Silk Reflections don't last too long in a business setting) and for a hint of color and totally sexy legs, I go for the Absolutely Ultra Sheer from Hanes. One of these days, though, I do want to try either Wolford or Secrets in Lace pantyhose, 8 or 10 denier just to see what they feel like. .
I like the Berkshire Silky Control Top. Especially in taupe. You want a silky pair of hose then this is the one. .
The Berkshires mentioned above are great. And there are many many brands and styles of Pantyhose to try out that are "the best", as your question asks, to different people for different reasons. The key, I think, is to find the perfect combination for yourself / your girlfriend/wife, whomever. FEEL, LOOK, Comfort/fit, durability, price, colours, situation/reason, â¦ Feel: Have fun trying as many as you can! There are 100's or even Thousands of brands / styles, so asking for some top brand names will help. Here is my top 25 in no order: Wolford. Fogal. Levante. Aristoc. DKNY. Calvin Klein. Pretty Polly. Cecil de Raphael. Victoria Secret (Glossy Smooth Signature collection). Phillipe Matignone. Filodoro. DIM. Oroblu. Charnos. Pompea. Givenchy. Trasparenze. Levee. Falke. Hue. Hanes (Silk Reflections). Le Bourget. Express. Sanpelligrino. Peavey. - Learn the difference in feel of the Lycra content high to low or without. You can still have a nice feel to 100% nylon, but it is more uncommon as it is a more expensive and not so popular weaving technique that is needed for that, on top of super high quality nylon fibers/yarns. The Lycra content (highly recommended) adds spring and as some say, "Memory" to the Pantyhose [so they do not get stretched out and remain that way]. -Look: Lycra also adds some 'glimmer', shine, gloss to your legs. Which can make them look slimmer and ... sexier- you know, that silky look! If you do NOT want any shine, you want to choose either a lower lycra content or simply just ' Opaqe' tights . There can still be shine with opaqes so try them out. If you want Pantyhose with designs on them; either back-seamed or designed throughout or patterned Fashion Pantyhose- they are now more popular- and they are out there. Le Bourget, Wolford, Oroblu and Trasparenze have many of these to choose from. -Comfort/fit: Many Women/Girls try an old pair of Pantyhose or a 2 dollar pair from the supermarket and many times just don't like them. Well Pantyhose are the perfect definition of, " You get what you pay for. " Spending a little bit more makes a 100% difference! No one wants saggy or itchy or binding or 'running' - Hosiery companies had to put up with huge demands including price- so they lowered the quality and sold 'cheap' Pantyhose for a dollar as they were needed/in demand. (supply and demand)- but again, you get what you pay for - People did not like the feel, fit, etc... and many just stopped. *Pantyhose made today are almost the total opposite of what was made 16 years ago. Lycras addition, the weaving process, the high quality material, the colours, the waistband, the toes areas, fully boarded (shape of the leg/figure instead of just flat or cylindrical), etc.... If Pantyhose are too strong for someones toes (some people feel too much pressure against their toe tips) they can allow more room in footed area when smoothing them on, or they can also buy footless Pantyhose. If someone is very large, do not get a size too small. Better to go up 1 size if unsure or borderline. If trying to look thinner, then yes get a tight pair, but a pair of Pantyhose designed to 'hold you tight'. There are many 'bottom' push up' styles, control top and all around 'support Pantyhose' that are very strong / designed to do just so. - Situation: You will want a light denier rating for Summer. (the number that tells the thickness/how thin the density is). Normally Pantyhose are about 15 to 25 denier. Once we get to about 60 denier we call them " Tights " (here in the United States). Ireland, Scotland & England refer to Pantyhose as 'Tights'. ) So obviously Winter you may want a heavier denier Pantyhose (or Tights!). Some girls wearing 2 or even 3 pairs of Pantyhose, for looks (creates a smooth Shimmer effect), warmth and support. (Some wear a control top style 1st, then a specific colour or design over them!) Sexual- if you are wearing them as Lingerie, that is when with someone, some people ask if there are certain Pantyhose that do not have the cotton panel in the middle, but just the smooth sheer material- Yes, " Peavey", "Tamara", "Leg Avenue", "Wolford " and many others come without or are available without the cotton panel, leaving just a smooth feel. -Colours: too many to choose from! Go crazy, there really are every colour you can think of being sold out there. You just have to find them. If one company does not have shiny metallic burgundy, that is okay because another company does! -Price: Again, Pantyhose are the perfect example of, "you get what you pay for". In my list of favourites, the lowest priced would be the " Hanes- Silk Reflections ". They do have a great smooth and silky feel to them and they look very good, especially when layered (wearing 2 pairs). " Wolfords " are known for being some of the most expensive at an average of 29.$ a pair, but they are also known as being the best and most Women and Mens favorite. (MORE)
