Surely pantyhose is among the great inventions of the 20th century, eliminating the need for garters and garter belts. Even better, pantyhose can also serve the purpose of shapewear, offering control and slimming where you need it. You'll find styles to suit any wardrobe, from ultra-sheer support hosiery through lacy and textured styles. Shaping, control-top hosiery is available in various levels of control, from light to very firm. Typically, there will be a tummy panel holding in bumps and bulges. Some styles have a high waistband to trim the torso or construction that lifts the derriere. Even the sheerest styles can offer invigorating support for the legs--trimming thighs and shaping the legs, too.
