Rated 1 out of 5 by Mommyto2 Way Too Big
I just had a baby and am larger in size than normal, so I relied on the Size Chart and reviews to purchase. I am currently a size 14 and according to the size chart, I should be an XL.... I purchased a size smaller (size L, 10-12) and it was still too big! I couldn't believe the size chart was off by that much. Disappointed. Maybe it was just this line in Spanx because I own other items and have been happy with them, but I also tried on in the store for a perfect fit. Will continue to buy, but only if I tried on beforehand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lizzyinthemorning Fantastic product!
I purchased this item for daily wear and wear it about 15 hours of my waking day. I've noticed dramatic improvement in my posture and have noticed my low back pain has improved, due to the added support.
I've purchased similar items from 5 different companies and each of them had a rolling-down-from-the-bra-line issue, or the binding-at-the-thigh issue that was very uncomfortable and none of the items, though labeled as maximum support, offered the supreme smooth that this power play tunic does.
It is a high waist superior control "panty", but I wear panties underneath this item in order to maintain comfort and hygiene. And it's easy to pull down, but the bra hook clasp at the crotch makes it easy to use the facilities without pulling them down. Both ways are convenient, but as I wear acrylic nails, I choose to pull down. :)
This item has a perfect stretch and lends my body a lovely smooth silhouette, which no only lends me confidence in my appearance, but also is a reminder to stand tall! Being proud of my curves does not equate to lumpy and frumpy.
I feel beautifully stylish and have many more fashion options available, now, as a result of this purchase.
I hand wash in cold and dry this item flat, to ensure the maximum support will always be preserved. I plan to purchase 6 more of this item and have received so many compliments on my appearance, I had to give the secret away.. which is....
"It doesn't matter what your dress size is, but if you are having a slow motivating day, put on a pair of Spanx.
It will lift your spirits along with Everything Else.
When you look good in your Spanx, you CAN'T have a bad day!"
I posted that on my facebook wall and Oh! Now, my friends are blessing me for their own great results, too!
I will continue to recommend this product for all day wear and superior comfort and excellent results!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kimberly Love this shaper!
I am 5'7" and 200 pounds, I recently lost 40 pounds and I have extra skin and a little flab around my midsection. I bought this thinking it probably wouldn't help that much...oh my gosh was I wrong! It tucks and slims the belly, it doesn't fall down, and the leg openings aren't too tight. This was my first purchase from spanx and I am a true believer now. I would sooooo recommend this product to any woman that needs that extra firming and support.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Harleymama73 Smooths well, but...
I'm a plus size gal. This Spanx smooths out and sucks in the rolly-pollies. But, it does not stay up in the back with the sticky strip against my skin, probably because of my rolls. I did figure out a solution that works: pull it up and just over the bottom of the bra. It stays!
I do like the feel of this garment and it's breathability.
