Berkshire Response:Normally, the #1588 back seam stocking comes up about mid thigh to wear with a garter belt. Berkshire has been making stocking for many, many years. Maybe, the hose could have been mis-marked.
Berkshire Response: Style #1588 is an Ultra Sheer hose which means it has no lycra or stretch in the fabric. They are not what you would call every day hose. After being worn for a while they will tend to bag, especially around the ankles. That is the nature of all Ultra Sheer hose. They are very sheer because they have no lycra/stretch in them, so they will start to bag on some people where the legs bend.
