This stocking provides 20-30mmHg of gradient compression which helps improve blood flow, prevent edema (swelling), and reduce the discomfort caused by moderate to severe varicose veins. Woven from 80% nylon and 20% spandex in the USA. All Allegro stockings are latex free.

Almost perfect, January 7, 2017 By Patsy Jennings (Tupelo, MS)
My only criticism of this stocking is that it seems to have gotten shorter. I haven't had this problem in the past, so I wonder why. As a tall woman, I always have trouble with the length, and I thought I had solved that problem with the Allegro stocking.
Compression Hose, January 7, 2017 By Anonymous (Gold Canyon, AZ)(Verified)
This was the first time I have ordered compression hose which was needed for post vein surgery treatment. I was pleasantly surprised how well they fit (I ordered the thigh high) and stayed up without pinching or binding.
Just OK, December 7, 2016 By Anonymous (Carmel, IN)
I had high hopes that these would be more convenient than a full hose design, but the band around the toe is uncomfortably tight and the rubber at the top irritates my skin. I figured out that I have to wear them with the toe opening as far down my toes as possible in order for them to be comfortable. I'm using these for sclerotherapy after-treatment so thankfully I only have to wear them for 5 days. I would not be able to wear them long term.
The best compression socks I've ever found, November 24, 2016 By Anonymous (Los Angeles, CA)
I've bought so many various brands of compression socks and I'm so happy to have finally found the best ones. I've tried jobst, sigvaris and medivan but these bright direct hit every category I'm looking for: 1) the most sheer and natural looking 2) the best compression, really feels like I'm wearing jets on my legs to give me extra bounce and energy 3) the most natural color as opposed to a medical look (jobst anf signvaris) or a dark look (medivan) 4) reasonably priced! They're the cheapest of the bunch, I'm so excited that I've bought various models. My favorite are the open toe thigh highs though the full length is good too, just not quite tall enough for my long legs. Thanks Bright Life!

Returned these because they would not stay up even after multiple attempts. Immediately slid down with first step I took.
Almost perfect, November 15, 2016 By Anonymous (Lakewood Ranch, FL)(Verified)
These stockings are great - so inexpensive and easier to get off than more expensive brands. The only problem is they (thigh highs) are a bit short. I live in Florida so I am often in shorts so my stockings have to be higher than my shorts are long! If they were longer, they would be perfect.

My legs felt more energized during the workday. The quality was as good as the expensive ones.
Compression Socks, November 3, 2016 By Peggy Blend (Burnet, TX)
I recently had vein therapy and needed to wear thigh-high compression socks and discovered those from Brightlite were exactly what the Doctor specified. The fit was perfect and has worked well.
Allegro Essential, November 2, 2016 By Anonymous (Falmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada)(Verified)
This is may fourth pair of Allegro sheer compression stockings and I like that they are soft and flexible and yet provide me with the support I need. I find them to be very comfortable and I appreciate that they are offered in size 3 XL, which is just perfect for me. However, I find that they tend to tear or run from the heel. I had to throw away a couple of stockings after they started to have large runs from the heel.
Stellar stockings, October 26, 2016 By Patsy Jennings (Tupelo, MS)
I like these stocking for their durability and ease of putting on. The color I prefer is Nude because it seems closest to normal. As a tall woman, I often have difficulty finding enough length in a stocking. The length of Allegra Essential is adequate. They are also sheer which sets them apart from the usual compression hosiery.

Allegro Essential Thigh High 20-30, October 13, 2016 By Anonymous (St Pete Beach, FL)
They are very hard to get on but once on they were quite comfortable and hopefully will help the leg and foot swelling on long plane travel
Excellent Customer Service, October 12, 2016 By Anonymous (Riverwoods, IL)(Verified)
Purchased this for one of our patients who accidentally ripped it when pulling over her toe nails. Called the customer care and pleasantly surprised to hear them say kindly return it!
They fit and they WORK!, October 7, 2016 By Robert Taylor (Englewood, CO)(Verified)
So far, we've ordered three sets of these stockings and they seem to fit and do the job well. My wife LOVES them and wears them every day. Can't ask for a more solid "endorsement" than that, can you?

Seemed to be cut a little short and were tight for a medium, other wise good.

Allegro sheer open toe- the best, August 25, 2016 By Pamela Dunn (Denver, CO)
As all of who have lymphodema know the search is on going for the perfect stocking. Ugh. Well after all my ordering and trying. This is my favorite. The ONLY reason I didn't give them a 4 star is this last order. Quality still awesome but the color was a tad orange. Have to tan my good leg??
Sheer open toe thigh highs 20-30mmHg -#9, August 11, 2016 By Anonymous (Fitchburg, WI)
One of my feet was painful from wearing the tight closed toe version. The open toe is a huge relief & I can now exercise without pain in my foot. The support hose are great at all times.
Allegro essential, August 3, 2016 By Patsy Jennings (Tupelo, MS)
This stocking is the best I've found for durability sheerness, and length. As a tall woman, I've had difficulty finding a stocking that is truly thigh high in length. This one fits the bill and in a pleasing color as wdll.
