The present invention relates to knit garments and more particularly relates to a sheer support pantyhose garment having an open-toe foot structure and an open crotch design which is suitable for wear while swimming, exercising or dancing. Variations on this design make it suitable for post-surgical or other medical uses. Many women are hesitant to wear bathing suits or summer shoe styles which require the wearer to remain bare-legged because they are ashamed of the appearance of their legs. Such women have a desire to improve the appearance of their legs so they can appear in public in a bathing suit, swim, wear sandals and abbreviated summer clothing with open shoes, and the like. The person may have visible varicose veins, unsightly scars, dimples or fatty deposits which render their legs unattractive and discourage them from appearing in a swimsuit.
