Rated 5 out of 5 by GrannieCandy It's a tri-fecta!
These leggings fit well, feel great on AND look great! At 63 years of age, I'm not quite as firm and fit as I used to be; but these enhance in every possible way. I'm 5'5" and generally wear a size 6 in jeans and a 6 or 8 in slacks; I took a medium in these. They come up to the perfect height around my waist (I'm not a low-rise gal) and absolutely flatter. Like a great relationship, they bring out the best in me! Thanks Spanx!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tata Bend over and show your stuff
Ordered two of these, one for my daughter, and one for myself. We both loved the fit and shaping. We were agreeing we would keep them when we did the leggings test: Bend Over! You could see right through the seat when you bend over. So many people loved these, that I thought perhaps they we got the wrong ones, but no. Maybe most women wear them with tunics or long tops, but we like to wear them with shorter shirts, too. No way we could do that and bend over! And they were not tight on either of us, so I think it must be a quality issue. Bummer, because we really liked the fit, the band at the top and the bottom leg opening were very stylish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CherryBlossom Great Legging, Needs a few tweaks
These are really great leggings. They provide great coverage (not sheer), are very comfortable and provides a nice shape to my derriere. I like them so much, I have them in the Wine and Black colors. My one piece of feedback relates to other reviews I read before I bought my leggings: the waist band does produce muffin top. It's not so much that I'd return the leggings, but if the waist band were 1/2 to 1 inch lower it would not cause the problem. The waist band wants to cut in right at my belly button, but the natural height of the waist band is above my belly button, so the waist band folds over. Perhaps in the next iteration of these great leggings, Spanx will shorten the waist band in these leggings by 1/2 to 1 inch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KandyGirl17 Outline of the good and brief bad right here.
The 'structured' legging really does make you look thinner... with boots on; the leggings are pretty short, which also takes a way from the slimming effect.
Also, the area around the tummy was wayyyy to big, but I think I ordered a size to big, mostly because I was trying to make sure that they were long enough for my long legs, but it didn't really work out lol.
But overall, a really great pair of leggings.

If you want a lasting firm fit in a well made legging, this is it.
The fabric is so soft; and, just a bit thicker than a tight; which is what you want to pair with long tops or mid-thigh skirts, because they should be seen. The colors are great. I'm exchanging my medium for small; because I prefer a bit of compression for shaping the leg. The wide waist band is super slimming and comfortable.
I will wear them for casual dress and for power walks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KandyGirl17 Really short, top of the structure sticks out
- first, they are really short, you have to wear boots with them.
- and I think I ordered too big of a size, but they were still not long enough though.
And I have to wear a sweater over the top so the wierd circular like think at the top doesn't stick out.
Other than that, they have amazing quality!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Skinnygirltrapped Love the look BUT...
The waistband feels too tight, it digs into my stomach at the top where the Cotton leggings do not. Although the fabric will hold up better on these, i prefer a smooth look from top to bottom vs having leggings that create a muffin top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaggieMay Best Purchase Ever
I had my doubts about wearing leggings at 65 years old, but these leggings convinced me that I could! I purchased the Ready To Wow! style in black size small. I am 5 ft. 3 inches and 128 lbs. These are perfect....who knew that at my age I could wear anything that was described as "Ready To Wow!" These are slenderizing, discreet and a perfect fit in every way. My long blouses and tops look great over these leggings and I feel "properly" attired for someone of my mature years. Thank you Spanx and now I am going to order another pair!
