Rated 1 out of 5 by Ginger44 Terribly disappointed....
I felt these were a serious let down. I do not have unrealistic expectations. I don't have serious "shaping issues". I just need decent tummy support and some hip to thigh smoothing. I'm 5'7" and around 147 lbs. I bought these to wear under a formal dress and took them with me without packing other options. They gave NO support. I felt conspicuous. Seriously, you can get better tummy support from a $4.00 pair of No Nonsense. On the plus side, I guess you could say these were exceedingly comfortable as they felt like wearing nothing. Also, unlike most high-waist products, they didn't slip or roll down.
I do have other Spanx products and have been overall mostly satisfied with those - enough to keep buying this brand despite the usual "roll down" issues - but this experience had me swearing off ever spending the additional money for this line.

Rated 3 out of 5 by revmom Buy a size smaller
My first spanx purchase. After all the spanx hoopla I was disappointed this product didn't do a better job holding me in. I am 5'2'' and 147. Purchased so I wouldn't look too "cuddly" for my son's wedding. Didn't do the trick on my mama stomache. I think if I had bought a size smaller it might have done better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mklinda I love the feel of this product.
I love the fact that it does not roll down. That has been the problem with other brands. The high-waist pantyhose is so comfortable, I think I will purchase a smaller size in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by James Great Pantyhose
I wore these for a Halloween costume and dressed as a secretary.
Being a guy, I did a little research and needed something for my "tummy" area and that would stay up. These fit the bill perfectly !
They looked great with my costume and made my legs look sexy. They were very comfortable and after a while I forgot I was wearing them. Great Pantyhose

Rated 4 out of 5 by DeLo40 I think I was expecting more
Overall, I was happy and pleased with the product and I really liked the idea of the high waste, however, I didn't feel like they stayed up as well as they should/could have. I hate to be fussing with pantyhose and had some serious high hopes (probably because you guys do such a great job with marketing!) but I felt like I had to go to the bathroom a few times to pull the high waist back up. (It would have been so nice if I could have just hooked them up to my bra or something...) I consider myself low maintenance and I don't dress up often for formal events and I was hoping that the high waist would have been more "low maintenance" than it was.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Heather007 I like the high-waist but they were not strong enough
I did not like that I got a run in them after just the first time use. I now just wear them under dress pants as a tummy controller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cattlegirl everything tucked in where it belongs
When I don these innocuous-looking, seemingly innocent pantyhose, I suddenly become sleek, thinner, taller and I believe I started to speak a foreign language - possibly an ancient Norwegian dialect. Did I say these impune Power? Yes, and the really great part, besides the improved posture and intellect, THEY STAY UP AND DON'T ROLL into a disgusting band cutting one into a living cadavar and necessitating the constant fidgiting to correct any constricting of internal organs.
I will be buying more of these soon.....
