Rated 1 out of 5 by kjfrommn Love Hate Relationship
I have spent more money on spanx than I have on dress pants in the past 2 years. At $28-$32 a pop - I expect a quality of product that I can put on in the morning and wear past noon. Ten wash and wear cycles would be good. But inevitably I can't leave the house before they've snagged way too easily or for seemingly no reason at all - it's very infuriating. I HAVE notice the tights will hold up, but I wish there was more of a nude colored tight. It's a problem and they need to address it --- years ago they're quality was much better - I could get several wash and wears (maybe 4-5) out of a pair, it's like there was a manufacturing change - and it it's been poor quality with the sheers ever since. If you're planning to wear them for a special event - you better bring along a couple of pairs just to make it through the day... sad - but very, very, very true.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Rosie63 Good shaping, but pantyhose tear too easily.
I like how these pantyhose shape me; however, they don't last! Most times they tear as soon as I put them on. This product is so expensive and should be made of better quality materials. Please improve! Thank you!

Rated 2 out of 5 by RuthieAgain2 Panty wayyyy too long on shapewear and hosiery!! Quality gone downhill!!
SPANX used to be my go-to footless shapewear. Now, however, everyone can visibly tell in pants where the Spanx stops on your thighs because of the thick material in the long panty transitioning to the flimsy thin stocking on your thighs. The actual panty is wayyy too long down your legs. You can’t wear any of the newer style dresses, you will have to wear a dress that is at your knees or below in order to avoid seeing the panty. Also, it is visibly obvious in pants where the pantyhose stop on your thighs, so you can’t wear any skinny jeans or the like. Also, the stocking part almost always rips and/or runs in the first few wears (if not THE first attempt to wear). Not the kind of quality you look for at Spanx prices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CAO1952 Fit like a glove
Ordered these for a wedding and didn't realize I clicked on the high waisted. Uncomfortable at first - but after a while, found them to be comfortable and gave me the look I was hoping for! I was afraid from other reviews these would run quickly - but did not have a problem. Coming from the era of wearing hose on a daily basis - you quickly remember how to carefully pull these babies on and off. Lots of hand cream first helps ;-) Also, I find I always need a size smaller than the chart for any Spanx product (which is fine with me!). Overall - GREAT product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Emma30 Very disappointed
I am a Spanx user and I am usually very happy with the products so I treated myself to the Super High Shaping Sheers for a wedding I was going to last Saturday. When I arrived at the church I barely tipped my knee against the side of the chair and immediately got a hole in them. I saved it with clear nail polish for most of the day. Later on in the evening I was pulling them back up and got a ladder on the opposite leg. So disappoined with these. They are now in the garbage and that is $32.00 down the drain.
I must add that the size and shape was excellent which is why I am even more disappointed that they didn't last.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Michele22 Quality needs improvement
Love the concept, but the quality needs improving. The panty portion of the product does exactly what is supposed to, smooths out everything. I wear these every weekday, but so disappointed with the sheer portion. No matter how gentle they are care for, the sheer portion just doesn't hold up. For the money I expect more from Spanx. I do hope this will be addressed for I am hooked and haven't found a replacement. A company the size of Spanx should be able to find a solution to this ongoing problem, one that is shared by many based on the reviews written. Listen to your customers or you will loose them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by AprilA Always pop a hole
Although this product is great for evening out your shape, 8 out of 10 times in new pair, these sheers "pop" a hole in the middle of the strangest spot -almost as if something "bit" you. Not in a likely spot like the toe or from putting them on/adjusting. For the price, it's obvious that the materials used in the stocking are not worth the money and all you're left with is the shaping part and no stockings. An expensive day at the office.
