A689 Microfabric™ Support Sheer Pantyhose with Fly
Microfabric™ Support Sheer Pantyhose with Fly Note: Early customer feedback tells us the legs in Large are on the short side. If you normally order Large and your height is average or tall, order an XL. It should still fit, unless you're very thin.
This is the best male-specific pantyhose we have ever produced! Six months in development and testing, but well worth it. The silky leg fabric glides well under trousers. The reinforced brief provides support, too, making it perfect for guys who want to be cool and comfortable and have just a little bit of slimming at the abdomen. This style features a sheer toe, so wearing with sandals in warm weather will go unnoticed. Even if the fly opening isn't used for its functionality, the lower panel stretches to form an amazing pouch to support "male equipment" very comfortably, making this style unequivocally the most comfortable men's pantyhose on the market.
Available in L, XL, and XXL. See Size Chart. NOTE: We are not making this style in Medium. In our experience, Medium is the slowest selling of our sizes, and is always left over when everything else is sold out. The fact is that there are just not a lot of Medium sized men anymore, at least not in the US and Canada, our main markets. Our supplier needs for us to order a minimum amount (usually 10 dozen) in each size and color, so if we have 3 colors, that's 30 dozen Medium items that will sit on the shelf a long time. It just isn't economical to stock Medium anymore when we have to invest in that many. In other brands, when we can buy smaller amounts, we'll do our best to continue to stock Medium.
Available in Beige (what some call "nude"), Black, and Tan (what some call "suntan").
Contains 83% nylon and 17% spandex.
Made in U.S.A.

Great with Room to Improve
Posted by Allen B on 10 Jan 2020
Activskin A689 Pantyhose, Beige; Size XL; I am 5' 10.5", 245lbs, normal proportion legs, low waist, with a dad gut. I purchased these and a set of A677’s XL, both in beige on this order. I had hoped to buy Tan, but neither were available right now. So, I’ll check back with GLS soon for new arrivals of stock. No matter, the beige is a good skin tone match and looks nice when ‘installed’.
The shipping time was about 4 business days and the packaging was awesome like always, When I unrolled the hose from the card, the length was about 6” shorter than the A677’s, the reinforced brief appears more supportive, the fly is narrower with better elastic, but the waistband is narrower. So, I washed & hung them dry before first wearing them.
IMPRESSIONS: This beige is a nude color. The A689’s are much lighter in color than the A677 beige. When I first put them on and adjusted them, I found the brief & legs are very smooth to the touch with a comfy medium support very similar to L’egg’s Sheer Energy and more supportive than the A677. The A689’s & A677’s are similar in sheerness whereas Sheer Energy are even sheerer yet and have better glide IMHO.
Meanwhile the A689 has a very comfortable, very supportive brief and pouch. The fly has a robust, firm elastic band around the opening. The A689’s feature soft, stretchy sheer toes whereas, the A677’s toes are reinforced. Finally, the A689’s exhibits a little sheen to them with a hint of sparkle in the right light and angle giving your manly legs a flattering appearance vs. the A677 which really sparkle & shine!
While the A689’s brief is very resilient, the legs seem a bit fragile. The first time I put them on I discovered 4 snag/pulls the size of pinheads. The second time 3 more places appeared. So I dabbed them with clear nail polish and they have held up without any runs for now. It’s possible that I caused them though I always try to lotion my fingers, hands, toes, heels and knees before doing anything. I also use gloves as much as possible. I’ve not had snag issues with the A677’s, so I’ll just watch the donning process with the A689’s.
All of this makes me wonder if I need to move up to an XXL size? Feedback says the L size is definitely short in the legs and to me the XL seems slightly short compared to the A677’s which fit perfect after only two wears. In my case, maybe another 1-2” in the leg would be the fix? I hate to lose the just-right-compression feel but too small could explain the holes?
Regardless, it won’t stop me from ordering more A689’s in the future. In fact, my next set will be XXL’s just give them a fair evaluation. These A689's are great looking, have perfect medium support and quite simply are soft & infinitely comfortable men’s pantyhose. I’ll give them 4 stars for now, believing that adjustments & improvements are coming soon.
Give them a try. There's a lot to like about the A689's.
I see your legs

The A689 are good hosiery. The only problem I've found was the waist. Couldn't keep them up.

Very resilient and strong for being labeled as men’s pantyhose. Very comfortable and stay up very well.
The size I selected was a perfect fit,based on what I had the choice of. Would highly recommend this product to others.
