So I received my Spanx today. Of course I had to try them on immediately. Ladies, let me tell you: It works wonders!
* Amped-up, high-waisted tummy-taming panel - HERE IS THE THING, LADIES: I'VE READ IN MANY REVIEWS THAT THE TOP PART SLIDES DOWN. IN ORDER TO PREVENT THAT YOU REALLY HAVE TO BUY THE SIZE THAT IS RECOMMENDED FOR YOUR HEIGHT AND WEIGHT. THERE'S REALLY NO NEED TO BUY A SIZE DOWN BECAUSE THE MATERIAL IS SO TIGHT ANYWAY. I, FOR INSTANCE, WAS IN BETWEEN TWO SIZES. AT FIRST, I WAS TEMPTED TO BUY THE SMALLER SIZE; BUT THANK GOD I OPTED FOR THE LARGER SIZE. I HAD NO PROBLEMS WITH MY SPANX AT ALL. PLUS: I CAN IMAGINE THAT A WOMAN WITH A SHORTER TORSO MIGHT FIND THE TOP PART TOO LONG... IT WAS OK FOR ME; MY TORSO IS IN BETWEEN short TO MEDIUM WHEN IT COMES TO LENGTH (IF THAT MAKES ANY SENSE). AND WOMEN WITH FAT RIGHT UNDER THE BRA SHOULD BE AWARE THAT THE SPANX MIGHT ACCENTUATE THIS BECAUSE THE SPANX ARE SO TIGHT ; SPANX TAKES REALLY GOOD CARE OF THE LOVE HANDLES, THOUGH!!
* Super sleek, cling-free finish - TRUE
* Mega compression zones target tummy, thighs and rear - WELL, IT DID ALMOST NOTHING FOR MY TUMMY, BUT IT HOLD IT IN CONTROL AND SMOOTHED EVERYTHING OUT.
* Unique new design gives rear a lift - SURE DID! MY BOOTY LOOKED AMAZING IN THE SPANX. BOTH IN JEANS AND IN A REALLY TIGHT DRESS. HOWEVER, I WOULDN'T RECOMMEND WEARING SPANX UNDER JEANS BECAUSE YOU CAN DEFINITELY SEE WHERE THE SPANX END ON YOUR THIGHS.
* Cotton double gusset for ease when nature calls - I REALLY WOULDN'T RECOMMEND USING THIS TINY WHOLE!!!
* Panty lines be gone! Wear as underwear - SEE ABOVE
* Legband-free design prevents bulges on thighs - TRUE
* Streamline your silhouette in waist-cinching skirts and dresses - YEP!! FYI, I HAVE A VERY ATHLETIC FIGURE WITH NO WAISTLINE. THIS BAD BOY REALLY MANAGED TO GIVE THAT HOUR-GLASS FIGURE WE ARE ALL LOOKING FOR!!

CONCLUSION: If you are looking for a body shaper that gives you a nice, tightened silhouette, doesn't create that dreadful mono-butt, and feels relatively comfortable under clothes you don't need to look any further because SPANX In-Power Line Super High-Waist Mid-Thigh Shaper Panty is the BUSINESS!! But ladies, mind your size!! When in doubt, ALWAYS choose the bigger size and you shouldn't have any problems with the SPANX. All in all a good product!
PS: SPANX SHOULD COME UP WITH A VERSION WITH A SHORTER LEG PART. UNFORTUNATELY, YOU CAN'T WEAR THOSE SPANX UNDER REAL SHORT DRESSES OR SKIRTS...

I bought my first pair of Spanx several months after seeing/hearing lots about it. I am used to wearing shapewear as I wear dresses for work and don't like my thighs to rub or to not have a smooth foundation. Upon getting a raise, I decided to treat myself to something "special". I was so incredibly impressed the first time I wore them. They stayed put and would "breathe" better than most shapewear does. Imagine my horror when, by the third time I wore them (correct size, hand washed, etc), they began falling apart at the crotch, back seam, and legs. Within a few weeks, the holes were so big that I could no longer wear them and had to donate them to the trash can! Sad, but having a forgiving and optimistic outlook, I decided that the first pair was a lemon and bought ANOTHER pair! Again, they fell apart almost immediately!! I am so embarrassed to have been fooled TWICE and at what I spent to get such low quality. I much prefer the significantly less expensive shapers I previously wore that DON'T FALL APART!!!! In this case, you don't get what you pay for! PS: I am writing on my husband's account and he insisted that I reveal that I am not, indeed, him and that he does NOT wear shapers with his dresses! :)

Getting these on was not the most comfortable thing I've done, but I love the way they make me look... As for the hole they give you making going to the bathroom easy, I beg to differ... It is very tiny and I just wasn't comfortable with the idea of trying it, so I took them off... Then we're back to the battle of pulling them back up.. Overall they make you look great, so you have to decide if the battle is worth the end result... Pain is beauty I guess..... :)

Okay, the bottom line here is expectations. Let's face it...if you are overweight you are overweight and no garment is going to take you from a flabby size 16 to a svelte size 4. What this garment will do for you is to smooth out the lumps, bumps and bulges. When I have this on, I do not look thin but I look less lumpy...which is an improvement.
If you think you will put this on and be transformed into a thin fashion diva than you are sure to be disappointed. The only thing that will do that is proper diet and intense exercise (or plastic surgery). What it will do is smooth out your appearence so although you still appear overweight you will be less frumpy. I cannot wear tight fitting clothing with this because when you push the lumps in at one location there are more noticeable bulges in other locations, but I do wear it with sweaters and jeans or looser fitting dresses.
Overall I like this product and it does make feel better in my clothes. I do recommend going with the one you feel is a bit too tight because they will stretch out with wear (just like jeans). This is not a miracle cure to being overweight but a temporary fix for some problems that come along with being overweight.
I did not have problems with rolling but did feel very constricted. This is not something I would want to wear if comfort was important.

I'll keep this short and sweet. I'm overweight (by quite a bit) and in the process of losing weight (by quite a bit). I wanted something to help in the between phases of flabby and healthy, and when I first wiggled into this garment I couldn't help but notice that my muffin top was gone, my tummy was smooth, and although my butt was minimized it wasn't squashed (which was one of my fears). I love this product. I go nowhere without it.

The only issue that I've had is with my thighs. I have pretty wide thighs and if I don't pull the legging part down to around my knee, it is very obvious I have on a shaper if I am wearing jeans. It's really no biggy to do, though, but I wanted those of you who have a similar body type to know there IS a way to work around it.

One thing to note: you will not go from fat to skinny. You will still have the same amount of fat and flab, it will just be squished, moved, etc. If you have trouble with the back rolling down, I would personally suggest buying a SPANX camisole to go with it (I personally put the camisole on first and this on second) so you don't get back flab exposure.

I couldn't be happier with this product. I really couldn't. :)

I noticed a lot of mixed reviews on here but since I have bought these before from Spanx, and from various stores I wasn't worried. These are fantastic without being heavy, but BEWARE of who you are buying from. I needed these quickly and Amazon was out so I chose a seller to purchase from instead. I almost just threw these in my bag to pack without looking but since the package was taped together I decided to make sure it was not used. It wasn't used, but it is a cheap knock off! The band is not properly stitched so it does not lay flat, and runches up, the material is cheap and filmsy, nothing like real Spanx, not even as nice as the cheap Assests version, and the giant tag was another giveaway as all my spanx so far are tagless, and everything is printed on them directly and they do not have the hole in the bottom either. Do not purchase from Under Moments unless you want to waste your money. I didn't appreciate being duped like this.

I am 5'4 130 lbs and am wearing size c . The size b was too tight to get up my legs. I probably could have done it but it would be very difficult and I didnt want to work at this for 5 minutes putting it on.

I wouldnt say it is very firm control but it does some support and shaping. The material is very comfortable which is very important. I tried to go to bathroom using the escape hatch they provide, but the garment got wet anyway. I ended up cutting the cotton panty out of the bottom and making it totally crotchless. I have since washed the garment and it has held up well. I only cut the cotton area. I wouldn't have cut any of the nylon spandex because that would ruin the integrity of the garment. The item does not roll down. It was too tight on the top of my ribs too and I gave it a snip with the scissors at the top and that is working out well also. I guess the item was not so good for me how it came but I was able to modify it to where it is pretty good.

When I first tried this on I did not feel like it held in my stomach very well. But after wearing it and getting compliments of how good I looked that day, I felt more secure. It definitely smoothes out the love handles too. I wore it with a pair of form fitting pants and you could not see line marks at all on my legs. VERY extremely comfortable.....silky fabric. I did order up a size per the reviews....glad I did, but know I will have to order the smaller size if I lose a few more pounds.

This product is a total waste of money. Now middle aged, until this past year I never had to worry whether pants I bought last year would fit. Looking for a solution, I have worn Flexees for about 9 months now and recently tried a Squeem product but decided to give Spanx a try since I know someone who wears and it and there were many good reviews. Total waste! Does not "shape" at all. I don't see how people claim they can get into clothes they couldn't before. This product makes NO difference. For the same or less money, Flexees is a better choice and Squeem rocks!
