I've purchased over 50 pair of Allegro Essentials Compression Pantyhose in the past 4 years. They outlast the brand my health insurance provides that costs them 4 times as much. The Allegro brand helps combat the severe lymphedema I have in both lower legs/feet. The compression prevents the cellulitis in my lower right leg from flaring up. And I haven't had a deep vein thrombosis (DVT) since I started wearing 20-30mmHg throughout the day. DVT was a problem after I had both knees replaced. I will occasionally wear 15-20mmHg or 8-15mmHg while relaxing in the evening. I wear the nude in summer with shorts. And the black appear to be socks when worn with slacks/pants. I'm very self-conscious. But it's very rare someone even notices I'm wearing the nude with shorts in summer. If asked, I simple say "I wear compression stockings to combat severe swelling & blood clots." Doctors told me to wear these 15 years ago, but I was too self-conscious & would only wear knee high compression socks. Had I wore what my doctors told me to wear, I wouldn't have had DVT's, blood clots or severe lymphedema in my lower legs. So, guys listen to your doctor. Your leg health is more important.
So now I don’t feel like I am wearing granny tights., November 5, 2018 By Charmaine Thomas (Adelaide south Australia)
I recently got DVT on a flight and so far each pair of compression stockings had made me feel like a frump wearing nana tights. So I was delighted to finally find a pair that look decent with a pair of heels,don’t wrinkle at the ankle like an elephant, or pull down until they are half way down your legs. Thank you.

Works Great For My Lymphedema, October 23, 2018 By Anonymous (Pittsburgh, PA)(Verified)
Attn vj (Iola, KS) - I have worn Allegro Compression Pantyhose for 4 yrs now. I wear them from 5:30am til 7pm, usually 13-14 hrs every day. I had the same problem you're experiencing at first. Bagging & collecting behind the knees & at my ankles. I learned to pull the pantyhose up completely when donning them. That solved the problem for me. It feels like I'm stretching the material when I pull them up like that, but they stay put. They don't require pulling up throughout the day. They stay put on me. I'm a guy w/severe lymphedema in my legs & feet. Both legs had DVT's, blood clots, both knees replaced & several surgeries to repair multiple fractures. So, I don't think the severe swelling will be going away anytime soon.
Good product, October 22, 2018 By vj (Iola, KS)(Verified)
Like the sheerness and fit of the product. I did have another pair that had a run after a couple of wears. Just fixed it with fingernail polish like in the olden days. Ha. Donâ€™t really care for the way they gather around the ankles and behind the knees, however I have never had a pair of support hose that did not do this. If anyone has please let me know??
Hmmmm, October 21, 2018 By Vj (Iola, KS)(Verified)
Really like the color and pretty good sheerness but these seemed a bit small especially around the tummy. Have others that are the nude color and they are not as tight. Tried queen size in nude too but too big for me. I must be inbetween sizes.

The opening at the top does not taper, leaving my thigh bulging over the top. I'll need to be very careful what I wear these with.

I am very satisfied with my purchases. Fit perfectly and good quality hose that have lasted for months without runs or loss of support. Thanks for a great product!
Allegra Sheer Support Pantyhose 20-30 mmHg, August 13, 2018 By Anonymous (Lakeville, MN)(Verified)
I am pleased with this product except I wish they didn't bunch at the ankle. They are fairly sheer, the nude color looks great, they are comfortable and good support. I am comfortable wearing with dresses as long as I wear them with shoes that have an ankle strap to cover the bunching. They are fine under slacks. If you fix the bunching they would be perfect!! I will order more. I am 5"3" but I ordered the regular size as in reading the reviews I thought Petite would be too short and uncomfortable in terms of length. They were a little bit of a challenge to put on at first but I am used to them now. Overall pleased and would recommend. Thank you!

When I was in my 30's, a doctor asked me if my legs hurt and ached, also if I had broken veins. I was shocked and said "Yes!" The doctor handed be a brochure for Brightlife and I ordered some compression panty hose immediately. I have worn this same type of Allegro hosiery for over 20 years. They are wonderful!! Each time I order I am amazed that the fit, quality, and price has continued to improve. The quality is beautiful and lasts. I do wash them in a fabric bag, on gentle and then hang dry. Beautiful product every time I put them on. Thank You Brightlife for a beautiful product!!

Fantastic, July 17, 2018 By Joe (Port Charlotte, FL)(Verified)
I’ve worn compression hosiery for quite awhile now, to alleviate swelling in my legs. The pantyhose are extremely convenient for me, and are much more comfortable than knee highs or thigh highs. As of late, I’ve been wearing the Allegro Premiums much more than the Essentials (I have several pairs of both). The premium line are a bit pricier, more opaque, and offer what seems to me anyway, stronger compression. However I do go back to my Essentials from time to time, and just wanted to reiterate how incredibly comfortable, well fitting, and overall great quality that they are, also at a great price. They are sheer, glide well under my pants at work, and the 20-30’s work great for my needs. My legs feel energized and healthy. At day’s end, they are not at all tired. At times I forget I’m even wearing them. The large waistband is a wonderful feature, as they never roll down on me. They require little to no adjusting no matter how long I’m wearing them. I have had a defective pair here and there, it happens. For the most part though, I can make one pair last weeks to months at a time. Allegro are just an all around great product, and one that I will use for a very long time, no doubt. The Essentials and the Premiums are the only hosiery I wear.
20-30 mmHg Compression stockings, July 9, 2018 By Anonymous (Chancery Hall)
The colour is good. The fit is fair. Using the size charts, I chose the Queen size which is a size up from actual measurement based on reviews. They are quite difficult to get on and much to my chagrin they run despite me using a glove to help with donning.
I also have full thighs, hence my going up one size. My thighs still tended to chafe together.
Once on they do get the job done and the compression is effective. And bathroom stops were not quite as distressing as I thought they would be.
Sheer Beauty, July 5, 2018 By Carol parsons (Manhattan)(Verified)
It was my lucky day when I found the Allegra #33 sheer 20-30 compression panty hose. I have worn compression panty hose since 1988. Previous to finding Brightlife the hose I wore were very thick, hot, and ugly! I have recommended these hose to some of my nurse friends. They wanted to pass the info on to some of their patients. Good job Brightlife!

I like the tuape color, May 10, 2018 By Chris (St. Paul)
These are almost exactly like the Ames Walker brand but cheaper and better colors. I always have a hard time in the summer and have found people notice less of the color matches your skin tone. These are good for that. Also like the compression. I am 6 foot 2 at 220 pounds and the XXL fit nicely. You have to remember women have longer legs than men so a woman that 5'11" (Size chart.) will have the same leg length as me. Feet nicely made. I don't know after 19 years of medically needed full leg compression per DR, why I never ordered these. I guess the only drawback is that there are two seams in the back. I guess its good for durability but kind of give me panty lines in dress pants.
Very Satisfied, May 4, 2018 By Anonymous (Homestead, AZ)
I am a flight attendant and I have had problems with my legs being sore after all day working. Many co-workers recommended buying a pair of compression hose, but they were always out of my price range (typically $70-$80!!) I found these buy chance and love them. I bought 1 to test them out, but I will be purchasing several more as they are perfect for what I need. I highly recommend them!

Would not recommend, April 19, 2018 By Anonymous (Toronto)(Verified)
Not comfortable, falls down a lot, bunches and the material isn't as soft as some of my other pairs.
Allegro Support Pantyhose, April 8, 2018 By Anonymous (Hamilton, NJ)(Verified)
They are a pleasure to wear since they massage my legs. I have recommended them to a number of my friends. They are also easier to put on then other types of compression hose.
Allegro Essential support pantyhose, April 8, 2018 By Anonymous (Lake Elsinore, CA)
These support hose are awesome. I work long hours on my feet and had started having dependent edema. I could find nothing in stores that helped. Thank goodness I found these online. I will say they are a workout to get on but once on they comfortable and do their job!
