fit well but get runs easily
on March 6, 2014
I have two strong but opposing opinions of these knee highs. I suppose that works out to a 3-star rating if I average it out.
I wear long pants to work every day. I have a lot of nice pumps and flats that I like to wear to the office. I don't want to bother with a full pair of hose for any number of reasons, and knee highs are a good alternative (I don't like wearing my nice shoes without some kind of sock or stocking).
So I wear a pair of these at least 3-4 days a week. They fit well and they stay up all day long. They're reasonably comfortable (a heck of a lot more comfortable than pantyhose).
And now the bad side: I can't get these things to last very long. They're usually good for a whole day upon the first use, but if I wash them, I almost always end up with holes or runs after wearing them another time or two. So I may only get two or three uses out of any individual knee high. This makes them not such a great value. (I guess if you're going to ruin a knee high, at least you can match its pair up with one of the others from the package instead of throwing the whole thing out like you would with pantyhose.)
L'eggs is the only brand I've tried so far. I'm probably going to experiment with some other brands to see if there are any that hold up better over time.
