Rated 1 out of 5 by HMichelle84 Missed the Mark Completely
I own multiple Slimplicity half slips in the previous "minimalist" design that had a thin gripping material on the bottom hem to prevent them from riding up. I ordered this to replace the older ones that were losing their shaping ability after years of daily use... without knowing they changed the design. Although brand new and absolutely capable of keeping my saddle bags smoothed down (as the material does seem more robust and effective), all benefit is is gone as soon as you take a few steps. This slip rides up immediately, and unless you're able to constantly readjust, it is an essentially useless shaper. It is also shorter that the previous design, not to mention has a reasonably thick waist band that shows through fitted clothes... adjusting the slip upward to avoid the obvious waistline indentation only makes the bottom ride up that much faster (I'm an hourglass and really only need shapewear for my thighs/saddlebags, so the fact that this makes my 26" waist "muffin top" is completely unacceptable.) I have yet to find a better alternative to recommend, but can definitely advise that you do not purchase this item unless you want to be disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by WorkingGirl Will NOT stay down!
I had an important all day outdoor press event for work and specifically choose this item because I wanted a garment that would keep me cool in 85+ degree weather. The fit and weight of the garment was ideal, however this skirt would NOT stay down. Most of the day, this garment was bunched around my hips. When I got home I questioned did I select the wrong size? Nope! I fall perfectly in the lower range of a medium. Then I read the reviews. I agree completely with the other reviewers that this does not stay put! You will tug not one but MANY times. Very disappointed for the price I paid. I will not wear thing again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Deetzi I threw it away the first day I wore it
I think this product might have had potential but it was impossible to tell because as soon as I started to move in it, it began to ride up and didn't stop till it was all bunched around my middle. I followed the fit guide (I'm an hourglass) and I'm sure there is some law of matter that explains why it happened. I was so uncomfortable feeling it migrate that I took it off in the bathroom and threw it away! I really should have sent it back but I had no where to put it once I'd removed it as my bag was so tiny. Save your money ladies, all that fabric bunching around the waist does not make you look smaller.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kiva It's pretty good...
I'm 5'2, 120 pounds. I ordered a medium and it was a bit too long. It does ride up a bit, especially after sitting down. Over-all I am please with it. Very nice support, and it does beat a slip!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mermaid Great fit- but spent all evening fighting it
I am a Spanx fan, but this was a night of pure misery. As long as I stood up straight all was well. But the minute I sat down the slip immediately rode up. I spent all evening running into dark corners to re-adjust and many trips to the bathroom to totally reposition it. Wore it twice- every garment deserves a second chance. Even worse the second time. Too late to return it so I guess I am stuck with it now. But I will never wear it again. I am 5'7" and 140 lbs. Took a small, as I am a size 4, sometimes 6. But fit wasn't the issue...it was too much creep.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Marianne Not what you expect
I bought this in a small size, since everything else that I have from Spanx is in a small size. This slip is too small. I wore it once and It rides up. Too bad, since I was looking forward to have this item. Can't wear it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Remmy Half slip issue
I had to return my slip and order a smaller size. I reviewed the size chart and sure thought I bought the correct one, but it was too big.
My new order has been shipped and I have returned the original today.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mary100 Perfect Slip
I am 5'6", 110 lbs. I order the Spanx products in Small. I bought the Spanx half slip for the smooth look it gives me under skirts. I love this slip because it doesn't creep up while I am wearing it and because it is the only product out there that retains its smooth shape the whole time I am wearing it.
