For men seeking mantyhose or who need specially fitted compression stockings, dropping in to the local drugstore or browsing the hosiery section at the grocery store rarely results in a comfortably fitting option.
So if you’re a guy looking to get a leg up with fashion tights or need compression hose for medical reasons, where can you go?
There are a variety of online retailers who stock manty hose. Amazon carries a few hosiery items designed for men, including black fishnets.
Other popular retailers include e-mancipate.net and G. Lieberman and Sons, Ltd. But don’t be afraid to think outside the box also. Compression stockings, designed for men with circulation problems, also offer mantyhose-loving men a tights option. The full-length version of this type of support hose are available in full length, thigh high and knee length versions.
Brick and Mortar
If you want to try some hose on in person, check out a medical supply store. These retailers carry a variety of supportive hosiery for people of all sizes and can offer professional measuring and fitting. They tend to be a bit pricier than online retailers, however.
Finally, if you need mantyhose for medical reasons, don’t forget to look into reimbursement through your health insurance provider. The cost of compression hosiery is often covered by your insurance if you need it for lymphedema, deep vein thrombosis, diabetes, or other circulation-related disorders.
