Even better Allegro Essential sheers, March 3, 2018 By Anonymous (San Leandro, CA)(Verified)
Very durable and well fitted pantyhose. wasn't sure if I'd like the open toe version, but I find them comfortable and better both for wearing with socks in cold weather and with sandals in warmer weather. The nude color is a little warmer and more natural looking than than pairs purchased a few years back and the waistline is also not riding a high, so they're more comfortable. These Allegro essentials fit better, last longer and are more comfortable than much more expensive Jobst pantyhose I've tried.

Very well made. Love the open toes. Better design then Jobst. Customer service has been helpful.

This is my second pair of compression stockings and all I can say is that they are wonderful and perform well. Much less inexpensive than the pair that I purchased at another place.

finding tall in 20-30 mmHg is a challenge. The good: These provided excellent compression. The challenge: These "tall" have a long rise (crotch to the waist) which often happens with manufactures interpretation of "tall." I have long legs, but really, these were designed for someone with an extremely long rise. The result is excess material at the waist. Not a big problem unless you still have 20 mmHg at the waist (which of course you do not need). Bottom line, they were uncomfortable at the waist. They also were a bit tight across the ball of my foot (and I have extremely narrow feet) where again, I did not need 20-30 mmHg. They did do the trick for my caves and thighs where I did need the compression. At 1/4th the price of similar products and given that I don't need to wear them forever, I would say they are well worth the purchase. But please, manufacturers, just because we have long bones, does not mean we are afflicted with giantism. Generally our rise is close to normal!

After having purchasing thigh high compression socks, I was absolutely thrilled to find them in pantyhose. Great fit, does the job, excellent quality!!
Best for the price, September 29, 2017 By Anonymous (Monroe, GA)(Verified)
I deafly had some issues with the shipment, but once I contacted customer service, they have made up for it. But the product I won’t stop getting! They are the best quality for the price, especially since I can’t afford much more for compression stockings

Allegro Open Toe Pantyhose 20-30 mmHg, August 19, 2017 By Maria Zackowski (Billings, MT)(Verified)
I have enjoyed purchasing these stockings for a few years now and they have really helped me with my poor circulation, especially since I take long trips and worry about blood clots. I have learned that the easiest way to put on "ANY" compression hosiery is to use rubber gloves which grip the stockings much better and you are able to pull them up easier. Once you start using these types of hosiery you'll never be without...at least that's my personal opinion.

Allegro open toe, May 25, 2017 By Laura (Yuma, AZ)(Verified)
after 1 year, they have still not corrected the run that begins at the crotch and runs the length of inner thigh. It happens after only a few uses, and after many returns I have given up exchange for a replacement pair. The open toe helps my toenails otherwise I would simply return to the closed toe.

I can enjoy open toe shoes and sandals with showing nice pedicure. It gives natural look with right compression. Great product. I will buy and recommend it to others. Enjoy!

Love these compression stockings. About a third of the cost of the ones my vein specialist sells. Sheer look is good with dresses too.
Not Granny Hose! These are the BEST!, March 24, 2017 By Mae (Walnut Creek, CA)
I can wear skirts and sandals again! I'm a medium white skin tone, (not fair) and this nude color is the best. Allegro is the better than the Jobst and Medivien I've tried. Best color, fit, comfort and price!!!
Quality and Comfort, March 5, 2017 By Pattie (Virginia Beach, VA)(Verified)
So glad I found this brand. These pantyhose provide the compression my legs need, while still being sheer. The open toe is very comfortable, especially in warmer weather.

What a great pair of compression hose at a reasonable cost. They look like regular nylons. It's my secret.

Won't be buying these again, they are okay for dressy occasions but impractical for everyday use

Love them!!! Didn't start out with open toe, it's what I now wear every day. Wouldn't be without them. A necessity with my job as a nurse standing most of the time.
I danced all night, January 8, 2017 By Linda Rifkin (Portland, OR)(Verified)
These are the stockings that I have been looking for that allowed me to dance Argentine tango all night, show off my pretty polished toes, and smile the whole night since my feet were not sore from the seam under the ball of my foot from the former stockings I was wearing!
I could dance all night!, December 17, 2016 By Linda Rifkin (Portland, OR)(Verified)
I am a social dancer and the past three years, Argentine tango is my favorite dance. I always wear my Allegro sheer stockings , but my feet really hurt due to the seam on the bottom, right under the ball of my foot. I do dance tango in heels so imagine my surprise to trail the new Allegro Essential-Sheer open toe stocking this past weekend of dancing tango for 2 hrs on Saturday and about 4 hrs on Sunday with soreness from being on me feet so long, not from the seam of the stockings!. I was afraid that I would have to pay a more expensive pair of sheer stockings to dance in ,but now I don't have to worry. I can even get my toe nails painted since I wear open toed shoes. These stockings have opened up many new avenues for me on the social dance floor!

These pantyhose were so tight I was unable to put them on. I bought the same size with the regular open toe (Allegro) and had no problems. I am returning tham
Fantastic product! Better than all others out there, 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 and 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 hi though the full length is good too, just not quite tall enough for my long legs. Thanks Bright Life!
Great Hose, May 25, 2016 By Kathy (Sarasota, FL)
I have purchased this pantyhose in the closed toe style. The fit is perfect, I am 5' so the petite size is great. The only reason I gave it four stars is because the color Fawn is lighter than the Fawn color hose I ordered in the past. For the money this is a great hose!
Great product- fit advice, May 14, 2016 By Anonymous (Raleigh, NC)
High quality product. Ordering more. Does a great job and looks like pantyhose. I like that the waist isn't too tight. If you are having bunching at the back of knees- you ordered too tall. I was on cusp of tall/x-tall (5'10" & 140) but if your weight is at the low end of xtall chart, then go for tall. I wish they hadn't discontinued the beige color - nude is very light, fawn is pretty for some outfits but sometimes too dark with sandals, taupe is dark but also a pretty color. I'd like to see more shades again for the 20-30 compression for all the skin tones out there.

i have varicose veins and have been using thigh high compression socks from my doctor. They were very uncomfortable and decided to try your pantyhose. I have been using them for about 2 weeks now and love them. The price was great and received them very quickly. Extremely happy with my purchase.
