When putting them on for the first time they feel tight but boy they hold it all in and very comfortable. I have saddle bags and have tried several different types of Spanx and these do the trick for saddle bags. They end 2 or 3 inches above knee so I don't get any bulge indicating I'm wearing them.

I have never purchased this specific Spanx product before but I was very disappointed in the fabric. It was not smooth and silky but rough and thick. None of my pants would glide on over them. I had to fight to get my pants on over them because the material kept sticking and grabbing at my pants. I had to put my pants on over them much like you would pantyhose. It was like pulling rubber up over a wax candle. Once I got the pants on and sat down my pants bunched a little at the top like always and when I stood up the pant legs would not fall back down and drape because the fabric of the Spanx was holding on to them like Velcro. I would return the product but I accidently shredded the receipts. Never again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Spanxaholic Lovely, helpful product but runs small
I wear SPANX daily and am committed to them. I got these (purposefully) one size larger than I needed (according to the chart) so I could pull them up higher, as I like to do (high waisted are too high for a short person such as myself, 5'2"). It usually works out fine to do it this way but these seem to run a bit small AND the waistband is rolling on me which does not usually happen. I honestly can't tell if that is because they are making them smaller and I did not get them big enough or if the waistband is being constructed differently. I have not had the rolling issue before. I say 4 because the fabric is great and I am leaning toward it being a sizing issue. To gauge this review I will say that I am proportionately curvy with biggish bum and pot belly, a definite
store size 14. Happy Shopping!

I love these for all of my summer maxi dresses. When I wear the regular length you can see the indentation 1/2 way up my thigh. I'm shorter so this goes to my knee . . . no indentation!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ashlie07 Not as long as pictured
I purchased these Power Panties because of the extended length. I have varicose veins and needed something to support the worst ones that are on my thighs. The extended length is not as long as it is pictured for my body type. They are about half way down my thigh instead of above the knee. This is my only disappointment, because I purchased them for the length and did not get the length. Over all, they are comfortable.

Finally, an extended length to prevent that cutting-in at the thigh! I'm 5'3, with very muscular/thick thighs, and these are much better than the standard Power Panties - I am very happy with these. Now, if Spanx could just extend them another two inches to land below the knee (capri-style), they would be completely perfect. Please consider doing this to replace the Skinny Britches Capri - those are just awful: poor support and thin material - mine were full of holes within a month. Terrible quality.
Thank you, Spanx, for listening to your customers and designing these terrific extended panties.

I am 5'5" 185 very muscular built. I followed the size chart with the help of a Spanx associate which put me in size D. They were very difficult to pull up, they cut on the thigh, but did not show out after I tried on my slim tight skirt, they rolled on the waist. The material was not what I expected it was not that silky smooth material I expected. Side E would have been a better fit. I will order a size E.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lhb777 This is my favorite spanx product.
I love, love , love the power panties extended length! The fit is perfect. They are extremely comfortable. I am able to wear them all day. They hold up well after washing. Most important - they provide the best support of any spanx I have ever worn.
