The main difference you will find between the control top and support tights is the location of the compression. Support tights tend to have compression throughout the entire length of the tights. On the other hand, the compression that Control Top Tights have, tend to focus only on the top half of the tights, mainly focusing on your stomach area, sometimes flowing through to the thighs.

Which is right for you?

To find out which style of compression tights are best for you, firstly you must decide why you want compression tights and what for. If for health reasons, including vein problems in your legs, then support tights will be more suitable for your needs. This is because the support needed to increase circulation starts from the very bottom of the legs at the ankle, this promotes healthy circulation of blood back up to the heart, whereas control top tights would not have this ankle compression.

If the reason you’re looking for some compression in your tights is for the shaping benefits, then the next step is to consider exactly which part of your legs you would like to shape. If you have insecurities about your stomach, or if there’s a dress you would like to wear and would like to be smooth underneath, then control top tights are the right pick for you. If you really think you need as much shaping as possible and would like the full leg then go for the support tights!
