OMG Support Stockings! Me... How to do this and look good in summer?

Was told by Doc to wear these. In winter it is no issue because of long pants. My legs feel so good with them. I want lightweight pants for summer since wearing capri pants are out of the question now. Maybe lightweight pants with drawstring. Something loose in the 100 degree weather. Any ideas? I have purchased sheer support sock as well. Thanks in advance.

I have a few friends who wear them all year and they just get them selves all dolled up and wear them even with shorts. What can a person do if you need them and they make your legs feel better that should be what counts. Some times I thought their legs actually looked better with them on. They never complained that they were to warm with them on either all they said was the legs felt good.

Have you tried footless stockings...ASSETS a line by the lady who founded Spanx has a version that has support thru the legs and work great for capri or ankle length pants.

IMO...since you asked the universe for help....if you're going to wear support hose w/ feet...don't wear open toed sandals. Otherwise...I do think you can wear flesh colored support hose and no one will care.

I wear support stockings for most things but swimming.
