A1013 Thermofabric Opaque Thigh High Stay-up Stockings
Thermofabric™ Support Opaque Thigh High Stay-up Stockings
Thermofabric™ material is perfect for cooler weather and these opaque stockings are perfect for men who are particular about their underwear. Wear the underwear of your choice, and still get the warmth and leg support you need. This style of male stockings provides mild compression, effectively massaging and energizing your legs all day. The fabric of these men's thigh highs is soft and luxurious, providing superb comfort and great durability. The top band is a new design (and expensive!) but it's well worth it because of added comfort and effectiveness at keeping the stockings up.
Size: M/L . The M/L size is for inseams up to approximately 32 inches (81 cm) and a leg circumference at the top of the thigh of 16-22 inches (41-56 cm). The XL size is for tall men with an inseam greater than 30 inches (76 cm) up to 36 inches (91 cm) or more depending how wide the leg is. These numbers are merely guidelines and the only way to know for certain is to try them on.
Color: Available in black only.
Contains 90% nylon microfiber and 10% Lycra® spandex.
Disclaimer: In order to make these stockings stay up better, we use an elastic top band with silicone on the inside to adhere better to skin and reduce slippage. Most customers have no problem with our stockings but occasionally a customer may find he has an allergic skin reaction after a wearing these stocking a few hours. Redness and itchiness are the manifestations, and it will go away once the stockings are removed. Silicone itself is not the culprit, but silicone contains a plasticizer - a chemical used to keep silicone soft, stretchy and supple. When silicone sits for a while, the plasticizer may seep to the surface. It has a slick or greasy feel. Washing the stockings thoroughly with warm soapy water will usually remove the plasticizer and the wearer should have no trouble after that. If the product sits in a drawer unworn for some time, it's best to wash again before wearing.

Good, but not as good as in the past
Posted by Reviewer on 15 Nov 2019
These stockings are warm, soft, well-constructed and, importantly, adequately tall. I'm 6'2" with a 34" inseam, and these have plenty of fabric to comfortably reach the top of my thigh.
I had a prior version of these stockings (A1009, I think?) which I liked better than the current ones in two ways. Firstly, the band at the top of the current model is approximately twice as wide. I don't think it is actually smaller in circumference, but if feels considerably tighter because there is more of the stronger band material. For reference, my legs are in good athletic condition, and 23" around at top. I suspect that these would be uncomfortably tight if my legs were any larger around (I purchased the XL). I also feel that the solid silicone stripe of the old model is more comfortable than the silicone dots of this one, but that's just personal preference; others will feel differently, and I wouldn't dock any stars for this change.
Secondly, the current model has a strip of different material just below the top leg band. The older model had uniform material from the toe right up to the leg band. I prefer the uniformity of the older version. (This isn't as big of a deal with these opaque stockings, but it's quite obvious in the sheer version.)
Overall, these are a high quality, hard to find product. They definitely reach the high standards set by other Activskin products, and I expect them to perform well and last a long time. I would consider these again in the future, if there are changes to the top band.

These were just as described. I especially like that they stay up well and are comfortable.

I will definitely be buying more of these. They stay up all day long and look good too. Plus they fit my large body. Thanks for a great product.

Fabric is not as good as expected
Posted by Michael Moreau on 19 Nov 2018
I must say that this product you can buy as no other options for men are awailable. Nobody thinks about men.What to do. But quality of fabric of this model is not as expected. The onle positive moment is size. XL will fit most men's legs, even if you wear M. And, what is positive, cut anatomy of male legs, this is the only plus of these stockings.
