I Don't write many reviews, but after reading some of the prior reviews on this product, I was moved to comment. First, let me say that I LOVE the amazon customer reviews and they have been extremely helpful to me in the past. To those who routinely take the time to say what you honestly think-- THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

I'd like to pass on my experience on this item in the hopes that I can give back a little. My problem is a thick waist-- not up there with global warming, I know, but still frustrating. I eat right and exercise, but my waist refuses to cooperate even though my weight is pretty close to normal. Ok, I've picked up a few pounds over the years, but I had the waist issue at my (long ago) skinniest in my teens and twenties-- its a genetic thing. Here's where the highwaisted Spanx pantyhose come in. If you have a similiar body type, please don't be discouraged by some of the prior reviews. This product is the real deal, a godsend. I promise.

Some of the other reviewers on the high waited hose version of these tights said that the hose didn't stay put--I understand this issue all too well having experienced it with other products, but I have to emphasize that rolling has NOT been my experience with the highwaisted spanx pantyhose. In fact, the stay put factor is what makes these hose so terrific. It makes me wonder if maybe the other reviewers ordered the wrong size. AS someone who has tried a lot of products trying to create a more feminine waistline, I really encourage others who have similar concerns to give this product a fair try.

In my experience, the high waist stays exactly where I want it AND the hose are extremely comfortable--more so than conventional hose simply because there is NO rolling at the waist-- the top goes all the way to the bottom of my bra and STAYS there. I wear these hose to the office and even after 12 hours on, I feel no need to rip off my hose when I arrive back home--something I did frequently with other control hosiery. And most tummy control hose work on tummy but do nothing for the waistline--my biggest concern. Believe me I have tried many many products of all kinds. This product is a great alternative to corsets (which work but are unbearable after a few hours). This product also disguises lines and bulges under clingly clothing. If you try this item and still have a problem with the rolling waist band mentioned by other reviewers, may I suggest you try a slightly higher size? The compression still works and the smoothness factor under clothing and the illusion of a smaller waistline are clearly worth the effort.

So by now you get it--- I am REALLY happy with this product. I'm going to continue to buy this item even though a bit pricey as panty hose (and I would ideally prefer a separate hose and waist control)--but there is nothing out (including other Spanx products) there that works as well for my particular issues WITHOUT compromising comfort. One suggestion to Spanx-- add more colors for these tights?

After I started wearing this product, so-o-o many people started complimenting me on my appearance and my "new outfits." {i didn't buy any new clothes but I did start wearing belts over my jackets and sweaters to emphasize my smaller middle.] Many also told me that I looked like I had lost weight or was working out more. They said I was in great shape. What they didn't realize is that the only thing I had changed was something they couldn't see and didn't suspect-- my spanx high waist pantyhose!

I really couldn't imagine spending $40 on tights but the reviews were so good I used a birthday gift card and took a chance.

These are fantastic! Everything everyone says about them is true! They shape wonderfully and don't roll down or bunch up in weird places. I was worried that like many of my previous tights and hose that I'd have a run within 24 hours. I was so surprised when I actually started to pull them up. The material is A+++ and strong. So strong I was worried they may be too small even though I was right in the perfect middle range for my size. I just kept up the tug and shimmy all the way up and was instantly blown away at how curvy and not rolly I looked.

They go all the way up to the bra line so you don't have to worry about muffin top or that horrocious roll of fat going across your butt because your tights/hose were not long enough or started to roll down your hips. Even my panty line was well concealed. After the first wash they still look like new and feel it.

If you wear tights often this is an excellent investment. Stop wasting $10 a time for tights that last a week or fit funky because they're the general S/M/L/XL sizes or give you camel toe or any number of other issues we ladies get with ill fitting tights and hose.

I really can't tell you how well worth the purchase these are other than I know these will be the only brand of tights I ever buy again.

EDIT UPDATE:

Everything I said before holds true still. I will say these tights even withstood my dog and cat. Within 72hrs I found them pulled from the laundry and in my dog's kennel. My dog is half goat and I almost cried at the loss of my new amazing tights. I gave them a look over and they SEEMED fine so I popped them in the wash and crossed all my fingers and toes. They're STILL like new! Even now after a number of visits to the kennel and then the wash they hold up and don't look worn out or have any punctures/runs like I would have expected. They've also now passed the cat test. He may not always want to love on me but when he does it's always before work and when I'm wearing tights or hose. I heard the pop pop of nails as he jumped off my lap and was so surprised to see that yet again these tights totally held up with no signs of damage.I wouldn't recommend this on a regular basis (cat claws) but it's good to know that one claw won't ruin your entire outfit or $40 tights.

Spanx,

My hat is off to you. You get an E-high five and my business for life.

Man oh man...(breathe in, breathe out) Feels good to delete these off my wish list :D!!! Just got them for X-mas & I absolutely adore them so far. Took me LITERALLY about 15 mins to put on though...phew, but they are exactly what they promise to be. I'm sitting down right now & I know for a fact that they aren't even considering rolling up (big-deal). Perfect fit when all is said & done, great strong quality fabric, very opaque, which I love! I know that these are going to be with me for some time now. Oh & note to self...do not, I repeat DO NOT buy these without checking the sizing charts on the Spanx website! Trust me, you don't want to guess more than a few lbs off if you're going to be the in between type size like I am. I'll confess...I guessed, because I often buy tights of all sorts, & what I picked sounded close enough (*shrugs?*) Now that I have the packaging & get to look @ the sizing chart, I'm actually about 3 lbs above the range for my height & I FEEL EVERY OUNCE, lol!? A good way to make sure one will not overeat 2day on X-mas, or any typical tend-to-over-eat occasion!! Anyways, all in all, fantastic product, worth every cent, I plan on purchasing every color. Hope this helps & Merry Christmas everyone :)!

I love these tights... They look great under a dress...and I am so particular about the thighs and rubbing...some material does not feel that great. This is sliming, and extermely sturdy. I feel together but not like a saugage in casing...haha. I would def get the size chart and follow it exactly! I am 190lbs...so i got a D. Good luck

I actually bought these a size larger than I probably should have, I thought about returning them but didn't have any other pair to wear on Thanksgiving. I'm so relieved that I did not return them as they had just enough power to hold me in but enough where i didn't feel like a packed in like a sausage esp after a Thanksgiving meal. I would say order a size up for comfort. Also because they were bigger they appeared to be much more opaque and yet they still didn't bunch up or bag anywhere. The high waistband did not roll or slide down and lay flat on top of the bottom of my bra which left me fuss-free all day long. I'm so glad someone finally made a high waist pair of tights because I can't wear 2-3 types of support undergarments at once. These do the job of regular leggings spanx in the form of tights. From now on i will only buy these tights and its nice they come in some cool patterns as well.

This product is perfect for us apple-shaped women. No other similar product can compare for fit, durability, and comfort.

Spanx makes great products, and the tights are excellent. I love the high waisted style, I love how they hold you in, and the tights are very durable. I do believe Spanx are expensive, but I will pay for this quality. I do find these at TJMaxx sometimes at half the cost, so you may want to check there first. A great product!

I paid $30 for this product and it did not meet my expectations.
These tights were no better than the ones I've bought at Wal-Mart.
I have purchased the "George" brand for $5.50, and also "Just My Size" for $6.00. (
There was a promise on the Spanx High-waisted Tight-End Tights package that said it provided support to "whittle your tummy".
That's a lie! Nor was my end tight! Maybe I got a defective pair.
I have purchased Spanx products in the past, and this was a tremendous disappointment to say the least.
I purchased the Spanx In-Power Line Super High Footless Shaper at the same time and it actually did deliver on its promise.
It provides great support for my tummy as well as my end.The thigh support is minimal.
I will NEVER purchase another pair of Spanx High-WASTED Tight-end tights unless they are $5.50-$6.00 like the ones at Wal-Mart, and I make sure I spread the word about the poor quality and broken promise of this product.

I can't get enough of these tights. Great quality. Great shaping. Always a great experience ordering from Amazon. My only regret was not being able to get a few pair in black, too. Very happy shopper.
