Rated 1 out of 5 by LBinSF HORRIBLE Quality in this latest batch - every single one ripped upon first wearing!
I've been wearing SPANX exclusively for about 3 years. I CANNOT believe how poor the quality was in the latest batch I ordered online. Sometimes I buy them at a department store, sometimes I buy a batch online.
I will probably never order these again. I am now looking for another brand to start buying. VERY disappointed in them.
I cannot afford to pay $15 every single time I wear a pair of nylons - and I wear a lot of dresses. Several of these came right out of the package and ripped immediately. There's nothing more elegant than a huge run in one's black nylons, especially when at work without a backup pair on hand!
The ones I've had in the past (also SPANX - same exact nylons) have lasted several wearings each and were much better quality nylon.
Nothing has changed with regard to the way I wash them and I'm exactly the same weight. I am not sure what is going on but I am VERY dismayed to have spent $193 (including tax) on this last batch and had none of the pairs survive.

I bought these tights and was less than impressed with the end result, particularly since they're on the pricey side. I actually went a size up to ensure that the tights would be truly opaque. The shaping effect was not really that noticeable on me because of the extra size, but what I did notice was the unsightly roll these tights created around my waist when otherwise I have a flat stomach. I am 5'9 with a 29 inch waist and I purchased a size 4D. In my opinion, you would buy shaping tights to flatter your figure under body conscious garments, so why on earth would you create a waistline that adds to the problem? Also, the actual material of the tights is not my favourite. They are undeniably high quality, but they're more of a matte, wool finish that looked really heavy on my legs. I'm a pear shape, so that is something I try to avoid. All and all, I wouldn't recommend these, and I've purchased many superior tights at a fraction of the cost.

I was looking for something to wear underneath my jeans that would give me a smooth look instead of having panty lines, like when I wore my regular underwear. I kept hearing about Spanx tights and thought that I'd give them a try. These tights are so comfortable and easy to wear. They aren't tight around my waist either. Being 6'0 tall, I was afraid that I would end up with tights that wouldn't pull up high enough to fit the crotch and waist areas. These tights have plenty of stretch and fit me beautifully. I'd recommend these to anyone looking to buy a pair of comfortable, easy to wear, everyday tights.
