I've found the best fit, value, and service., June 17, 2017 By DOROTHY (NANTUCKET, MA)(Verified)
I purchase a pair of stockings for each day of the week, twice annually from BrightLife and have been purchasing compression hose from them for at least 20 years. i have tried many manufacturers with variable success. After a serious DVT I was told I must wear the highest compression hose on both legs to avoid clotting. So i wear 30-40 mmhg compression all day, every day and have for over 20 years. Initially I tried pantyhose, but that was an all day job getting them on and they self destructed in a week from the effort. Then I tried knee highs for several years but they did not fit well due to the structure of my knees and I really needed something longer. i finally settled on thigh highs, but had problems with a proper fit. Regardless of the type of band they would not stay up. I tried using glue, which was a whole other story. that was messy, uncomfortable, and my thighs would be red with irritations and I had blisters from the band. I tried many manufacturers throughout this process, settling primarily on Jobst. However, nothing really stayed up well, rolling over and constricting blood flow at the band. Over the past year I have discovered Mediven and primarily due to their many sizing selections, I have found not only a good fit for the ,length of my leg as well as the circumference but also a good band that does not roll over. The Comfort Thigh with beaded silicone band works very well and is easy to put on. It is heavier so I use them mostly in cooler weather. The lace band on the Sheer and Soft thigh highs work very well tho i prefer a silicone top. More care must be taken in putting the sheers on, as they will run or even tear if you are not careful, but they stay up very well. My one objection is that the do not have the best color for me. i get Natural but it is darker than I like and there isn't an in-between, lighter color available. However, being able to get a length that fits my shorter legs and large thighs is a real bonus that makes them the best fit i have ever found. I would be remiss if I didn't mention that I would never order through anyone other than BrightLife. Their service is second to none. They go the extra mile to find what is best for you and shipping is fast and economical.
Not My Favorite, March 28, 2017 By Anonymous (Prospect, KY)(Verified)
I was hopeful these would be my favorite due to the positive reviews. I like the sheerness. They are probably the most attractive compression garments I own. I just need a little more compression for my leg than these are able to give. The lace band around the thigh is pretty, but it leaves red marks that hurt at the end of the day. It's not so bad that I can't wear them. At the end of the day, it's just my unique compression needs that make these "not my favorite". They will probably be the best garments to wear in the summer because they are so sheer and look like my natural skin color. I will try other styles by the same brand. I'm 5'3" tall and 137 lbs. 10lbs of that is probably in my right leg. Acckkk!
Happy at last, March 4, 2017 By Anonymous (Auburn, CA)(Verified)
I was reluctant to buy thigh high compession stockings, mainly because I was afraid they wouldn't be long enough and they wouldn't stay up. I'm 6' tall and wear a size 12 shoe. The foot size was sufficient and the stockings were long enough. Also, they stayed up all day. I'm very happy with this purchase.

I live in Fla. and My Sheer & Soft thigh high stockings are just wonderful for the warm weather we have here. I have purchased several pairs and enjoy them. I have been buying all my stockings from Bright Life for the past 12 years.

I thoroughly enjoy the soft and sheer thigh high stockings. It fits very nicely and a little cooler for the climate in Florida. I now have 4 pairs and will definitely order them, again.

This is the only brand that I have found so far that stay up on my thin legs! I don't think about my legs during the day when I am wearing them. The Jobst donning gloves are priceless in helping me get them on. Appreciate the customer service at BrightLife.

Great compression hosiery!, July 9, 2014 By Jeff (Lawrenceville, GA)
These are fantastic compression hose. I love the feel of the fabric. It's cool and comfortable in the summer and much cooler than the more opaque products. I only have one gripe about this product, which is the lace band. I'm a man who needs these products for vein issues and would love if they made these with a dotted silicon band as opposed to the lace. The lace is ok and it stays up, but just doesn't seem to be as comfortable as the dotted beads on the Comfort line Medi sells, and needless to say not looking for the sexiness of the lace band, just something that stays up and is as comfortable as these. Of course, I only buy from Brightlife, they are the best priced and best customer service you will find in this business.

I have been so pleased with this product. They fit perfectly and last a very long time. The wheat color is the best match for my skin and some people don't even notice I am wearing it. It stays in place and feels great. Very happy!

I have been using the Sheer & Soft stockings for several months. They provide excellent compression wash well and are the most sheer of any stockings I have found. I have noticed that after wearing them for about 2 months the knee area sometimes begin to appear "frayed". This is an excellent product and reasonably priced.

I used to wear another brand considered one of the bestuntil I found these by Mediven. I love how sheer they are yet give the needed support. I also love that the toe is so comfortable! I highly recommend these stockings! I won't go back to the other brand as these are quite superior and less expensive.

The new sheer and soft thigh highs appear more sheer -- this is a real plus-- they are also comfortable and fit well.I'm very pleased with the new product.I wish that that the manufacturer could produce the stocking with a sheet toe and heel (especially for summer). My secondary lymphedema requires the stockings to be worn year round -- it would be great if they were more sandal/open toe friendly!
