I have issues with my legs swelling and was told I need to wear compression stockings that I cannot afford to buy several pairs of. I spoke with someone at Essntial Apparel who was very understanding and helpful...especially since I'm a guy! These are very comfortable and are helping my legs more then I thought they would! Thank you so much for a quality product at a reasonable price!!!
As a man I find that Berkshire 4417 pantyhose are about the finest pantyhose one can buy, not only for women but for men. Berkshire 4417 pantyhose suits all my needs and I will continue to purchase this fantastic pantyhose!
My original review of these amazing hose gave them 4 stars where I thought the support was a little light. I am updating my opinion because the 4417 last a long time and really are exceptional. I have difficulty expressing just how great these hose are on all fronts. They look and feel incredible and are comfortable enough to wear for as long as you want to. By far these are the best medium support pantyhose I have ever worn. Hard to express how much I like having a quality support hose with a sheer toe, great look, comfortable and rugged. I am begging Berkshire to please keep this product around
I am a male who likes to wear pantyhose and tights. I like the fit and feel of these pantyhose, been wearing them off and on for a couple years now, but I wish they (Berkshire) would make them with a lot more support, because these don't really control the swelling in my legs as I have underlying varicose veins, I wear two pair at the same time but this is still not enough support. The medical grade hose are tooo expensive as recommended by my Dr.. I also wear and like Berkshires 4808 tights, both with shorts out and about. Pantyhose and tights are not just for women anymore you should try them.
I have noticed most of all good reviews on these pantyhose and so I decided to try out this style. So I ordered a couple of pairs of these pantyhose in city beige in a size 1X-2X and these fit just fine. These pantyhose are so comfortable and my legs look awesome. Also they do give plenty of support for my legs. Silky, sheer and supportive, what else can I ask for. Since I'm a guy that loves to wear hose openly I even went out shopping wearing a pair of these hose with some shorts and flats. Thank you Berkshire for another great style of pantyhose!

I agree with Mike that these are an excellent alternative pantyhose after Activskin A677 men's pantyhose. The 4417 pantyhose are almost identical in regards to support, durability, nylon to spandex content, fit, sizes and colors. These would be perfect pantyhose if they added a fly front for men! It would be fantastic if Berkshire would team up with Comfilon/ Activskin and supply them with pantyhose for men. My wife and I love Berkshire pantyhose. Hopefully we will see Berkshire pantyhose not only for women, but for men!
I've worn support pantyhose for several years, especially Activskin. Since Activskin is revising their line of products and my preferred style is currently unavailable, I decided to try these based on another Activskin user's suggestion. Wow, am I glad I did! These fit true to size with good support. I wear them everyday whether trousers or shorts. Not crazy about the sandalfoot toe but I'm really content with them. I find the panty especially comfortable and durable. Too bad they don't have a fly front like Activskin. I've worn Sheer Energy, Active Support, Hanes Alive, Sheer Caress, and none of them compare to these for comfort, durability, and price. Will purchase again.
I just got my order...couldn't be happier. The hose has just the right amount of support,they feel great super smooth...clothes slide on so easy... I wear them with pants and shorts...short shorts...everybody thinks they are adorable.They really make my legs look wonderful !!

Berkshire 4417 support pantyhose are my favorite next to Activskin 677 men's pantyhose. They offer great leg support when I work-out and are comfortable to lounge around in. If only Berkshire would offer a male comfort panel or fly these would be my go to pantyhose!
These hose were my first with Berkshire and I have to give kudos. There is decent support but nothing like Sheer Energy Active Support. If you want light support these are very good. The best part of this is the level of support combined with sheer toe which is very appealing.
These are great pantyhose, just the right amount of support with out being too tight. They look great, and they last a long time. I have worn mine for 4 days straight and there are no runs or signs of visible wear. Trust me, I have worn them with Jeans and dresses, Flats and high heels and these pantyhose keep on going.
Bad knees so these help quite a bit actually. I used to notice the difference when summer came around and didn't wear them as I only wear under my jeans. Great support. I wish they were available with a reinforced toe.

One of the three support pantyhose ordered , was not a support stocking, it was daysheer and was labeled accordingly.Unfortunately, by the time I opened the package, it was past the return date.I still would have had the added expense of returning this item.I wish the fit were a little fuller in the crotch area.This makes things difficult as I am required by my doctor to wear support or compression socks or pantyhose every day.They do feel nice, and they don't itch. Wish there were more colors'
