Rated 1 out of 5 by Liz53 Need to provide a petite or shorter length
This is my second Spanx product. The first one I gave to my niece once I realized I would need a second person to go to get in and out of the bra attachments. So I ordered the open bust body suit in a small. I am only 5'2" (140#) and it is just too long. Also it fits snug all the way to the last 2 inches and then I had a "muffin" roll at the top where there was a different weight and looked really bad when I put on my dress. It also rolled at the waist - too long. I really want to order your denim leggings but I know they will also be too long.
I really believe I would really enjoy your products IF there was an option in the length. I will be returning the body suit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DefinitelyNotBeyonce Maybe if we keep complaining...
When this product first came out, it was a lot better. The material was thicker and the fit was more true to size. It's way too stretchy now, it doesn't hold anything in, just smooths. I'm 5'11, 170lbs NOT HARDLY skinny and the small doesn't do anything for me. Now I just buy these and sew up the sides, but really, for nearly $90 dollars I shouldn't have to MacGyver this bodysuit. I know a lot of people wear shapewear and don't really want it to be tight so maybe that's why they changed it, for them who seem to be the majority? Can't you guys make like a Spanx extreme version? Or smaller sizes? Spanx used to outclass other brands as far functionality, but now, the only saving grace is the quality of the materials used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Terri67 Ahhhmazing!
I haven't bought shape-wear since my wedding dress in 2007 and it was Spanx. I needed something for Halloween so I figured I would return to Spanx. I'm glad I did! I'm 5'3, hover around 145, pretty well-proportioned, but my problem area is my stomach/waist. I purchased this product in the "Small" because I had read this product runs big. I guess if you can fit in it, it fits, right? ;) I LOVE the open-bust area and probably will not even have to wear a bra because it gives my breasts a lift. I didn't see that feature! Ha! It's very well made and is very comfortable. It smooths out my stomach, sides and back and gives my tush a lift, too, although I don't really have much to lift. I feel very confident in this and do not expect it to roll or sag. Worth every cent!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Spanxter8888 I HAVE TWO!
I love this bodysuit. I literally wear it everyday! It's keeps me smooth and tucked in with any outfit - jeans, skirts, dresses, etc. The open bust provides me with a little extra lift while giving me the versatility of switching out my bras and switching up my necklines.The hook-and-eye panty makes life a little easier (...if you know what I mean) and has three adjustable options, depending on how long or short your torso may be. It comes up high in the back which is great for concealing any back fat, although scoop backs or deep-v's won't work with this. There's a soft satin-y fabric underneath the arms so there's none of that pesky, uncomfortable rubbing. Needless to say, I have two...and my collection is growing! You won't want to take it off. I highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Zulma14 It feels awesome.
You don't feel like you're wearing a Spanx. It gives you a beautiful figure and gets rid of those unwanted places that you don't want to be seen. It makes your belly look flat and your back doesn't have any bulges. The only problem is that I'm 5'3" and there was a little more fabric in the waist making a little bulge. They should make their sizes for petite and regular size.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dini5 Comfortable but could use more shaping power.
I found this style to be very comfortable. I love the ability to wear my own bra, the straps keep everything up, and the higher cut keeps you from getting that line over the thighs when wearing clingier pants. I gave this product only 3 stars, though, because the shaping is minimal and disappointing despite being "ultra" shaping. I also wish the shaping continued up the back to keep the back rolls from showing, but the shaping is only in the middle. I bought a size smaller than I normally would, but it still wasn't enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mommy Great fit!
Thank you for the body suit. I have many spanxs products. I really like this one because it covers the whole torso and it makes for going to the bathroom much easier.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Menngie This product and style is great but...
I love this product and already owns 3. I'm petite 5'2 so even though I can adjust here and there to make it fit right, the material still gather on the back. I have shortened the straps but did not help much. It still has few gathered material towards the butt bottom. I would still recommend this product because it's great and it flatters my figure. I would strongly strongly recommend to Ms. Blakely (sp?) to consider making it for short torso or petite people like me. more over, add white color too. I use this body suit under a t shirt or a blouse that I tuck in under jeans or skirts. It would be nice to actually have one that does not ride up or down and does not has the ripple effect on the back due to accumulation of extra fabric. So, make it petite, and in white color too. Thank you.
