Rated 3 out of 5 by MamaOfThree Comfy on Belly, not tight enough on fatty areas
The maternity spanx are obviously not as constricting as the regular ones. I didn't realize that when I purchased them. They are very comfy on the belly with plenty of room - I wasn't uncomfortable. But the cons are: they aren't tight enough on the areas you want them to be. I have love handles that they didn't really do much for AND there's no slit/hole for using the restroom. Considering I'm in my 3rd trimester and have to use the restroom frequently, taking these things on and off 10x a night at a party isn't ideal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PlusSizedDEMomma Amazed at fit!
I am a plus sized pregnant woman. I needed to go to a formal event and wanted to wear spanx so I could be smoothed out. I was worried because the power mamma doesn't actually come in my size(I am about 298lbs). On a whim I bought the largest size anyway. While it took a little extra wiggling to get on, they fit like a glove and I looked amazing. The belly panel fit perfectly around my baby so I was not worried about compression.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cloclo Exactly what I was looking for !
I bought one size up since I always feel that the suggested size of tights for me is too small, and it fits perfectly. (I'm 5 feet 4, around 165-170 lbs pre-pregnancy, wore them for the first time at around 5 months pregnant and about 175 lbs. I bought size D instead of C as suggested in the size chart.) I was looking for something that would prevent my thighs for rubbing together when I wear a skirt or a dress, and I love it. Feels light and supports the belly just enough.
I'm delicate putting them on - no nails in the belly section - but my boyfriend washed them in the washing machine with everything else without me noticing it.... They got out all right, lucky me !

Rated 4 out of 5 by TiffX8 Great purchase
I am 7 months pregnant with my 8th baby and I bought my very first pair of Spanx to wear under a knit maxi dress. I was a little concerned about ordering them after reading the reviews about the center panel being thin, but I ordered anyway. While the panel is a thinner material, I didn't get any tear or rips while wearing it, just be careful when putting in on and taking it off. The overall comfort of the maternity spanx was fantastic. While I bought it for smoothing and belly support, I didn't give it an "excellent" rating because I found it a bit lacking in that department(not much belly support) and the overall smoothing wasn't that noticable(maybe I just bought too big). BUT, where this product excells...you get silky smooth inner thighs with no chafing!! This is a must for summer dresses. The spanx are light weight enough that you don't get hot in them, but they provide a nice protection for those sticky pregnant inner thighs. For this reason alone, I LOVE this product!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Katiehart Durable
After reading reviews, I was worried about my long finger nails making holes and runs in the fabric. However, even though they have made a few tiny little holes, they don't run any further down the leg. To me this is a sign of good quality hosiery. Worth the $ for sure. No one can see any lines through my clothes, they flatten all my dimples in my Butt and legs and smooth out my hips. This was my first time buying spanx brand and I will definitely be buying more post partum. Minus one star only because I wish they went about 1 to 2 inches further down the leg

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jthomason Received my 1st Spanx and it already had a run in it :(
Received my power mama spanx and it already had a run in it. Needless to say it was a mess by the end of the day:( the material in the front just isn't a great fabric idea.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Juanita Not the what I expected....
The front part is a nylon material that ripped easily as I was pulling it up with my lovely nails. The thigh and buttocks was a perfect shape wear but very disappointed at the while front of the shape wear is poor quality material.
