I find that if pantyhose are of good quality, it really doesn’t matter if they have a control top or not – they’ll stay up properly without sagging. I started having a preference for sheer to waist pantyhose just because they look so much better with high cut outfits.
Non-compressive and easy to put on, without the control top struggle, is actually the main benefit for me. I’ve met women who would say that they are squashed by their pantyhose.
T-tops are also really nice, but the only thing for me is that they would show up at the inner leg if worn with a bodysuit, like let’s say a dance leotard.
If someone does need shapewear, I’d suggest to buy a bodysuit or shorts with a shaping element for that purpose that can be worn over and over again. Pantyhose are best when they are simply sheer!
