Rated 3 out of 5 by Kat40 Please bring back the original In Power Line!
I bought the Slim Cagnito Shaper because I was looking for the In Power Line Mid Shaper which has been discontinued! I have been purchasing the In Power Line for many years- very disappointed not being able to purches them from Spanx directly! Please bring back the original In Power Line! I love Spanx and shopping w/your company- why change something that worked so much better then it's replacements?!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Steffiegirl My favorite accessory!
Love this product. I had a couple of pairs of Spanx from years ago and I always felt super constricted. This product keeps me all in without feeling like I got stuffed in a sausage tube. Love the high waist and surprisingly doesn't roll down like their previous product. I bought this and the Skinny Britches shorts...of the two, I prefer this one hands down. Will likely return the Skinny Britches and buy another pair of these.
I marked that the Spanx feel slightly large...it could be a bit tighter on me, but I didn't want to go down a size. I'm in between a 12-14, but I would not call this a drawback or limitation. Our bodies differ so much that another 12-14 might find this too small or just right. That's why we do these reviews, right? To get a girlfriend's point of view!

Rated 4 out of 5 by June53 okay, but not as good as the old version.
I never can remember what style I buy, so called to ask if they keep a record. The gentleman confirmed and after a short wait came back with the info. Ordered it, but doesn't seem to hold me in a well as the older version. Usually I order in pairs, for back up...washing...etc. I'm rather glad I didn't. After one wear, I've gone back to the older ones. I know I'll have to give up my older ones sooner than later, but will hold on to them as long as possible. No matter what, I still wouldn't be caught without my Spanx !!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tutti Best for Me
The Slimcognito short works best for me. After turning 50 the pounds seemed to stick to me. Spanx to the rescue! My tummy is smoother, no panty lines, more shapely derrière...what more could a woman want? The thighs stay flat to the leg and don't roll up. The waist rolls down a little; however, is not a big deal and still adds shape to my waist. Over time and many washings the seams have begun to come apart, especially at the waist, but is it reasonable to expect any clothing item worn weekly to stay perfect and together forever? I think not. So, I am purchasing more Slimcognito shorts. They make me look and feel my best in all my skirts and dresses!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Angel25 Not the same quality as the first one
DOES NOT hold as well as the first one, cheaper fabric and they raised the price? it rolls up at the waist and has no support., I have been using the first version over 6 years. I own 7. I am very disappointed. It was a waste of my $72!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Florida2Virginia Not an improved Slim Cognito.
This used to be my go to shape wear and I've been purchasing them for years. This item does not have the same quality nor shaping capabilities. The fabric ripped after one wear near the panty area, the thighs ride up a bit, and there is piling on the sides of the shaper after washing once on delicate. The size I got was the same as I've been purchasing for years and there has been no change in my shape to justify fit and rips.
This is an expensive piece and I expected the same quality that has made me such a fan of Spanx. I wish the old design would come back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JillK This product USED to be great
and I bought them over the past few years. Very durable (I could wash on gentle) and slimming. They have changed the fabric because it now doesn't hold up to washing and was pilling and not holding after a couple of washes. I don't know what they did but it increased the product by $10 and certainly didn't improve it. So, now I am shopping for the old model on eBay so I have them for awhile yet.

Rated 2 out of 5 by hawp Fit & feel are good but falls apart at stitching
The fabric, fit and feel are very good. I loved it when I first wore it. But unfortunately it began to unravel at the seams after the 3rd wearing. Then within a week or two the stitching failed and now the waistband is falling apart. For the price I would expect this to last much longer and not come apart so quickly. If the quality of construction can be improved, I would be interested in trying it again. Until then I will look for something less expensive, since price does not seem to guarantee quality and I do not believe in throwing garments away after being worn once or twice.
