Rated 3 out of 5 by Tburchy Got a size small and still too big
I usually get mediums but wanted a little extra "umph" and heard that this ran a bit big. It is still a bit big on me- and I am BY NO means a small ANYTHING lol.

I have not used this yet under my wedding dress, but used it under several other dresses, and it let's me feel better in my clothes and more confident for the big day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rocio48 LOVING IT !
Is comfortable, makes my butt look great and it gives me the confidence that I need . My only wish is that we could order different size pads. Some of us already have some junk in the trunk and it would be nice to have a small, medium and large pad option :) ... something to think about for you all .

Rated 1 out of 5 by cindi4 Regret my purchase
I'm a size 12 so just wanted something to help smooth my "muffin top". It didn't. I ordered a size smaller than recommended and it still felt large. It hardly had any tummy/waist control.This was supposed to be super duper control. The only thing super duper is the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 instant...natural looking booty without surgery
I was very skeptical about ordering such a high priced item. My goal was booty boosting and firming, and i must say that I am more than pleased with my purchase. I'm asian, 5'1" about 120 lbs. A (skinny) friend told me that spanx was amazing "it keeps you together". I must admit, I have my jiggly bits having had 2 children, and my bum is going south, despite my daily gluteal workouts. Slimmer & Shine has given my wardrobe a new lease on life. I'm now more confident in my clothes, and no more hiking up my pants because my booty pads help keep my pants right where they are supposed to be. The butt pads look natural, and the firmness in the hips and abdomen and thighs are perfect. I wear mine everyday! I now have 3 pairs. I'm able to wear panties underneath the spanx...and no panty lines. I wear mine without the bra straps because I have a short torso and the straps are too long, but no need for them anyhow. I work 12 hour shifts and after the first week my body has acclimated to the firmness. Please allot an extra few minutes when using the restroom because the butt pads do need to be adjusted every time it is pulled down, but not a big deal at all. The only time i don't wear my spanx is when i'm in bed. My husband confirms that the look is natural and not even noticeable under my clothes. Now i'm wondering what i'm going to do when summer rolls around. After all, shorts will not conceal the length of the spanx, and what about blouses that may show some midriff? I guess I'll just have to keep shopping for more spanx! Thank you Sara Blakely, i'm a true spanx believer!

Rated 1 out of 5 by MaryJ Overall very uncomfortable
So, I must have missed something in the description. Because I was surprised that this pair of spanx came with butt inserts. I don't get why shapewear would come with extra padding in the rear. I took the inserts out, and shimmied my way into my new spanx. The straps that hook onto your bra were quite a challenge and I had to ask my husband for help. Twenty minutes later - the straps were connected. Once strapped in, I turned around, only to see that the 'pockets' where the butt inserts go had somehow opened. Leaving areas of my rear less supported than the rest. This left a very awkward situation - my husband (the hero of this story) had to help me to close the pockets so that my booty received even support!
Now, I selected this pair of spanx because I thought those straps would help them to stay up. Unfortunately, nothing was going to help them stay up. I was pleased that they did not roll down. But they did slide down. I found myself going to the ladies room multiple times to adjust them. Those butt insert pockets were also a problem. As I found that they re-opened as well. I had to try to adjust those multiple times as well.
I double and triple checked the sizing to make sure I hadn't bought spanx that were either too large or too small. According to the size chart - I bought the correct size. Yet I couldn't keep them up to save my life!
I do not recommend this product - ESPECIALLY GIVEN THE PRICE. I am very sad to have wasted a hundred dollars on these.

Rated 1 out of 5 by eyeneva fair, but not outstanding
the product was sized larger than expected, was missing a strap, and the stitching for strap holder let go from the stitching after 1st use.
I expected the product to be much better made for the price.
