Rated 2 out of 5 by julesf This is not improved
The old version of this product worked must better as a shaper. I have worn the Higher Power panties nearly daily for several years. I would buy a new one when one wore out. As other reviewers have stated, I was looking forward to trying this new and improved version, but was quickly disappointed. It is very comfortable and much more stretchy than the old version, however, this makes it not nearly effective at holding in one's stomach as a shaping garment. It is mostly for smoothing, not shaping. You could probably fit into a size small no matter how large you are. That is how stretchy the material is. It also has a different band around the top that does not stay up as well and rolls down more. I put it under my bra strap so it's not really an issue. I much prefer the old version, even with the seam, rather than this new improved version, especially for the cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Elisa1987 Great!!
These are great. Not too tight, but soft and smoothing. The length ensures this does not roll down when you sit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jessie718 Bring back the "Spoil Me Cotton" Shapers!!!!
Poorly constructed. Inferior product. Pulling them up, my finger poked a hole in the sides of the garment. The material is very thin and frankly doesn't control the tummy /back area as well as even the Assets for Sara Blakely I bought at Target for a fraction of the cost.
By far, the Spoil Me Cotton version of this is the BEST garment ever. It's true to size, comfortable, controlling and the material is excellent and sturdy. Please bring that line back, I'll be sure to buy several pairs!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by SinCity Launch of New Style is a Total Dud!
I've been wearing Spanx almost daily for years and was very excited to hear they had "improved" the higher power line to be seamless, since that is really the only critique I'd ever had about the product. Boy, do I have plenty of things to complain about now. The new line is a total dud. The first wear was okay, but after that, disaster! The bottom rolls up. There's a new weird rubber/latex band on the top that, after the first wear, rolls down. The material is completely different and now too delicate, so it runs easily. I don't know what Sarah Blakely's team was thinking! Why try to fix things that aren't broken?!

Once I got them on they were ok but during the course of getting them on my finger went through the material and now I have a hole in them. I purchased the size based on the size chart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ecmh Very comfortable and very effective in control of "excess bumps", etc.The price of the product is very reasonable.
Loved the product, but surprised there is not an opening for bathroom visits. I will order another one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sassymom1 Ready for some tummy taming.......but
I was so excited to try this product but when I did I was disappointed. While it did take the tummy and stayed up extremely well. It created another roll of skin between my bra and the top of the panty. One problem tamed but another created. I'm 5'4 145 size medium was good. Returned it but :(.
