Support pantyhose can be a girl's best friend, especially for those on the go all day. By using graduated compression, support pantyhose relieves tired aching legs as well as aiding in circulation and helping to reduce the appearance of varicose veins. But all that goodness doesn't mean you have to sacrifice style. From the sheerest sheers to interesting patterns and textures, there is a surprising variety of styles available in support hosiery. Many styles also incorporate the control of shapewear with firm tummy panels and all-around slimming.
