I am on my feet 6+ hours when I am working at a big box store, standing on concrete floors. I pulled a muscle in my thigh one day and needed to give it support while working. I purchased this compression capri to give that support and it does not let me down! It is thin enough that I can wear it under my jeans while working and it helps support and get me through my shift. I would not wear it out in public by itself, you can definitely see through it, but then again, I am not the type of person to wear leggings or yoga pants away from the house. I love these capri pants and would highly recommend them to anyone who needs a little extra support because of an injury. They fit very well and are true to size. But they are compression pants so they are very tight fitting and you have to get into them just like you would with any compression clothing.
