Rated 5 out of 5 by MrsTyGri13 A must have
During pregnancy, women feel a bit inadequate, unattractive, and down right "huge". At least I do:) But I always wore a spanx and just could not imagine not having one on during pregnancy, although I knew a regular spanx was not safe for my growing baby's health. I looked online and saw this product and although skeptical, I purchased it. BEST PURCHASE EVER!!! I love it. I holds and flatters. And I feel so pretty and secure with it on. It is very comfortable and it grows as my belly grows. A must have for all Spanx wearing expecting mothers.

Those comfy knit maternity dresses are even better when you smooth the underneath. These aren't so tight that you can't wait to take them off. They provide a great support for my lower bump and back while making my backside look great! Highly recommended.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Linguy Good, but a little pricey
I've only worn the spanx power mama a couple of times so far and have enjoyed the way they feel. I'm about 5'6 and when I ordered them I was 217 lbs (7 months pregnant). My only fear is getting a run in the material that goes over the belly, and noticed the start of one already. I'm sure a run won't affect the product, but sure wish it was a little better. The fit of the thighs is tight, but not uncomfortable. Only catch is if you have them pulled up to high then you get that funny indent look. It also states they can be worn alone as underware, and it may just be me, but it feels to funny to not have underware on. Plus I only have 2 pairs and wear them almost daily, so I need to keep them half decent before the end of the week. I would own more if the price was a little lower.

Fits comfortably but the belly panel ran after the second wear.

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 !
