Rated 5 out of 5 by Linda55 Tight-End Tights Original Shaping Tights
I have bought 4 pair of these in different colors and am very happy with the overall fit, colors and construction of these tights. The only problem that I have is that the waist rolls down. I think if you have any extra around your middle you are going to have this problem. I bought a Natural Open-Bust Shaping Cami to eliminate this problem but the Cami rolled up. My body shape is not straight, my hips are a little wider and then I have a little extra on my torso from having a baby.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SarahK Just a regular pair of tights - no shaping at all!
I was excited about these tights when I ordered them. They were recommended on a website I like, and they're noted as a "bestseller" on the Spanx website.
Unfortunately, the first time I've worn these tights, I've seen ABSOLUTELY NO SHAPING power at all. I got them to help slim my stomach area a bit. While I listed my body type as "straight," I do have some curves (I'm definitely not a stick figure!), and have been getting a bit of a pudge on my tummy area since I hit my 30s.
For reference, I'm 5'2" and 118 lbs and ordered size A tights. The tights fit well: the crotch is in the right area, the legs aren't too long/short, the waistband reaches the right spot just above my belly button. However, the only reason I bought these tights was for the claim that they help "slim the tummy" but I saw ABSOLUTELY NO SHAPING HELP WHATSOEVER.
Extremely disappointed and would not buy these tights again. I would absolutely NOT recommend these tights to anybody, and in fact, I would actively DISCOURAGE other potential buyers. Buy cheaper regular tights, as these lack any shaping that you'd expect from a Spanx brand product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chitown Great feel and look
These are the only tights I wear in fall and winter. Look and feel are great and also great support for legs. Price is high but worth it.

These tights are a wardrobe staple! They are perfect for the office or nights out on the town. I've worn them all season without a run. They offer great shaping for my tummy, tush and thighs!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Burgundy14 Disappointing!
I bought a pair of these last week to wear with a new dress. Super excited and spent the extra money on what I hoped were a decent pair of tights that would last me awhile. I could've gone to Walgreens and picked out the nylons in the egg for all the use I've gotten out of these. I've had these on since 7:30, its now 11:30 and there's already a hole near the crotch of the tights. Who knows if these tights will make it through the workday.
To be honest, I'm a plus sized woman. I don't know why I feel the need to 'admit' this like its some kind of moral failing, but yeah, my thighs do rub together when I walk. However, I bought the appropriate size for my height and weight and they do fit very well. My curves are another reason I spent the money on what I thought were going to be good tights for my body type. Now I'm out $30 on a pair of tights I get to wear once, maybe twice if I'm gentle the rest of the day. This is ridiculous. I was so excited, they fit well, but now they're wrecked.
I don't know if this is something I'm supposed to be willing to put up with just because I'm big...? The quality is not what I expected for the money I paid. I actually felt cute and stylish for awhile today, now I get to constantly watch for the run coming down my leg.
I'm very disappointed. I thought I'd at least get to wear these a few times.

Form fitting. Don't sag or slide down during the day.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JenS Run like crazy
I ordered 4 or 5 pairs of tights from Spanx, and this was one of them. Some had holes in them as soon as I opened the package, and the others have run within 1-2 wearings. I've never seen tights this bad! I have cheapo ones from Target that I've had for ages with no problems, so I'll never buy Spanx again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Elie No leg support
Absolutely no leg support. Actually, a little large (I have very "strong" legs). Not recommended for someone on their feet for long hours. Can get the same torso control in another name brand hose for less than half. Will see how tights hold up overall. Definitely disappointed.
