Rated 2 out of 5 by Burgundy14 Disappointing!
I bought a pair of these last week to wear with a new dress. Super excited and spent the extra money on what I hoped were a decent pair of tights that would last me awhile. I could've gone to Walgreens and picked out the nylons in the egg for all the use I've gotten out of these. I've had these on since 7:30, its now 11:30 and there's already a hole near the crotch of the tights. Who knows if these tights will make it through the workday.
To be honest, I'm a plus sized woman. I don't know why I feel the need to 'admit' this like its some kind of moral failing, but yeah, my thighs do rub together when I walk. However, I bought the appropriate size for my height and weight and they do fit very well. My curves are another reason I spent the money on what I thought were going to be good tights for my body type. Now I'm out $30 on a pair of tights I get to wear once, maybe twice if I'm gentle the rest of the day. This is ridiculous. I was so excited, they fit well, but now they're wrecked.
I don't know if this is something I'm supposed to be willing to put up with just because I'm big...? The quality is not what I expected for the money I paid. I actually felt cute and stylish for awhile today, now I get to constantly watch for the run coming down my leg.
I'm very disappointed. I thought I'd at least get to wear these a few times.

Form fitting. Don't sag or slide down during the day.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JenS Run like crazy
I ordered 4 or 5 pairs of tights from Spanx, and this was one of them. Some had holes in them as soon as I opened the package, and the others have run within 1-2 wearings. I've never seen tights this bad! I have cheapo ones from Target that I've had for ages with no problems, so I'll never buy Spanx again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Elie No leg support
Absolutely no leg support. Actually, a little large (I have very "strong" legs). Not recommended for someone on their feet for long hours. Can get the same torso control in another name brand hose for less than half. Will see how tights hold up overall. Definitely disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SpanxterJB Best Tights Ever!
I absolutely love these tights. They are perfect for the office or nights out on the town. I've worn them all season without a run. They offer great shaping for my thighs, rear and tummy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ivyg By now I am a tight connoisseur
I have tried every brand of tights out there. I find my spanx tights to be best. I have had a couple of pairs pull on the first wear but on the other end I have had some pairs last for years. I love spanx tights, love them. They stay in place, I am not constantly yanking them up or adjusting them all day. They feel great and they really do smooth you out. I am a huge fan of colored tights, they are fun and I wear my dresses year round I wear colored tights with black or grey dresses. Love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lolae77 Great fit - very flattering
I have tried patterned tights before and never found any that fit correctly. They all seem to pull, run too short or just generally be uncomfortable. Not at all true of these tights! They are super soft, super supportive and very comfortable. The pattern is flattering and goes with many outfits. These definitely will become a wardrobe staple!

Rated 3 out of 5 by MapleApril Quality excellent but too small for round girls.
I kept these even though they don't fit well because the quality is sooooo good. But, if you are a pear (juicy hips and thighs with modest bosom) rather than an apple (slim legs with voluptuous tummy and bust), these are not going to fit you. The vertical stretch is phenomenal; the horizontal stretch is pitiful. There are solid wrinkles around my ankles, but the fabric is sheer around my hips. How I wish they would fit; they are so nice.
