Rated 4 out of 5 by Salinwa Good workout pants
I bought these because my trainer said it was hard for her to see my form in baggy pants when strength training. I wanted a high waist pant and these are high. It has been years since I've worn anything so form fitting but I easily got use to these. They are not hard to put on and they are easy to get off. They are very light weight so they are also my weigh-in pants for WW. I like them enough that I am looking to get a second pair. Being that it's been so warm here I think I will get the 'knee pant'.
I am 5 foot 2.5 inches tall and currently 163 lbs. They are a little long but it's a good long. They are snug but not at all restrictively tight. The extra length gives me a comfortable bend in the knee and doesn't slide down at the hips and it stays high on the waist ~ if that makes sense. My 4 star rating, I think, has more to do with cost than anything. Maybe also as I continue to lose weight I will be happier with how clothes fit on me. I must say, the more weight I lose the more I like these pants ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Killian Really comfortable for a compression smoother
Clothes drape beautifully over these smothers. I wear them under riding britches and they improve fit and smooth out figure flaws. I also wear them under trousers at work. They act as a lining that most clothes lack today. I will continue to purchase these for almost any occasion.

Rated 2 out of 5 by fit2bhealthy Does not have a long life.
I purchased these pants in September and have worn them only a few times and the seam in the back have already ripped. I really liked the way they fit and feel but for the amount of money I paid for them I expected them to last a lot longer. I have several pairs of workout pants by Nike, UA and Reebok (some of which I've owned a lot longer than the Spanx) and they have not ripped and I paid less for them!
I would have rated these pants a lot higher had they not already ripped at the seams because I really loved the way they fit.

by spanxter021611 Still the best yoga pants. Ever.
I wrote a review for these in January, 2013 and am still going strong. I literally wear them all the time. They're a staple on weekends - and not just at the gym. Now that activewear has basically crossed over into the loungewear/lifestyle category I can justify wearing these to run errands, go shopping, out to lunch, whatever. They're great for actually being active, too (again, not just at the gym). I wore them practically everywhere on a trip to Costa Rica - zip lining (saved my legs from a very chafe-y harnass) and riding ATVs down dirt roads (saved at least half of me from getting completely caked in dirt and dust - I'm talking every pore) and last fall I wore them when we hiked up Stone Mountain! I should stop calling them yoga pants, though. I don't actually do yoga.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Acme77 The perfect running "partner"
I bought these compression pants as a treat to myself. I have recently started running. I participated in my first 5k and they were perfect! They hold you in just enough. They definitely minimized my jiggling so I wasn't as self conscious. I would strongly recommend these for running as the compression is just right.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mags Not for outside wear
I just received my first spanx product. Couldn't wait for it to arrive. I ordered the compression knee pants based on many of the reviews. I wish I had listened to the few that said the pants were too sheer. Although the fit is perfect and I'm cinched in everywhere I want to be cinched in, they are just too sheer in the backside to wear out of the house. I am 5'5'', 130 pounds, and wouldn't say my backside is out of proportion with the rest of me. The pant is just too sheer. Unfortunately I'll have to return them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by GrandmaSue Too small
I had to return mine because it is too small. It will be a great product for you if you buy it in one size larger than usual.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ShaniLynn Just a suggestion
I absolutely love SPANX! The way they smooth out my booty, thighs, tummy, and back is AMAZING! I am a curvy girl and have never had a wash board tummy or tight thighs (the reason I need SPANX)They would be even more amazing if the waist and thighs didn't roll up/down. I would love it if the company would add a 1 1/2" band of silicone to these areas to prevent this from happening. Girls like me would greatly appreciate this added bonus to help prevent the uncomfortable feeling of your undergarment rolling and having to nonchalantly adjust it! Please help us curvy, soft girls out with this added feature, it would make a HUGE difference!
The garments that I am specifically talking about are the Trust Your Thinstincts® High-Waisted Mid-Thigh and the Shaping Compression Knee Pant and also the Skinny Britches® Open-Bust Mid-Thigh Body.
