I'm afraid the ladies at Spanx just don't get the problems of the pear shape. :) It's not their fault--they probably have nice firm gams (jealous!)
The thing about thick or flabby thighs is that the excess flesh covers the whole thigh area. It doesn't magically firm up mid-thigh. The best cut for those of us who need thigh-trimming is just below the knee or capri-length. Anything higher leaves an unsightly BULGE. Note: There should not be a tight band at the bottom to hold the capri in place because that too can create a bulge and constrict circulation.
What would be great would be a short that has firm support on top, with a gradual loosening to basically zero-compression, ending in laser-cut leg openings with a thin latex strip to keep the bottoms from riding up. That would be a perfect short for problem thighs!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Debi57 This product is disappointing
Purchased this product to wear under my gown for my sons wedding.
Well sorry to say that it was NOT super power to say the least.
I mean it was better than just wearing a pair of underwear and stockings.
But for the price $32 and the NAME it should have done a whole lot more....
My real disappointment is that the seams in the rear and crotch area have torn and come apart.
I Do NOT recommended purchasing this

Rated 5 out of 5 by Thomas Love this product but . . . .
Love this product and have been buying for several years but would prefer to have this product with the extended leg. I noticed you have started coming out with extended leg for other products. When will you come out with the extended leg for the In-Power Line Super Power Panties? I wear shorts that come to right above the knee and with the current product I can see a bit of a bulge where the legwear ends. The extended leg would fix this problem.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Retired Seams unravel
I bought this to wear with skirts that are too short for slips. It serves that purpose well but after wearing for only one day, the stitching in the crotch came undone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Wheatheart Legs ripped first wearing
I was so excited to get my Spanx! I've been looking at them for quite awhile, needing to replace my old worn shaping undergarments. Finally took the plunge and purchased a pair at Dillards. Absolutely loved, loved, loved the way they fit and smoothed me. I've lost a lot of weight and have lots of loose jiggly skin even though I'm toned and fit underneath now. I purchased the recommended size and put them on very carefully. However, the inner thigh panel seams immediately tore loose from the outer fabric. I kept them on for the day and very carefully adjusted the inner panel, pulling it back up where it belonged, but it didn't work very well. Now that I've read all the reviews, it's evident this is a design defect and not a one-off incident. I was all set to purchase more pairs because I liked the fit so much, but now I've decided not to purchase -- too much money for something that doesn't hold up any better than these did after just one wearing. *weep* Spanx -- please do something to fix this issue!

Rated 4 out of 5 by BarbaraJR Good panty choice
This panty is good choice under a skirt or pants. Legs don't ride up and waist stays in place.

Rated 3 out of 5 by kduffey Great product - just a bad egg?
I am 5'7" and weigh about 135 pounds, and am 4 months postpartum. I purchased the Super Power Panties to wear under a dress for a summer wedding and was looking for something that could help shape and control my stomach and thighs - two areas that are not as tight and firm as they were pre-baby! These were fantastic -providing just the amount of shape and support I wanted. There were no seems or strange bugles, which would have been obvious under the dress. However, when I took them off at the end of the evening, the stitching had pulled away from the leg and butt portion of the panties. I don't think it was because I bought a size too small (I fit squarely in the B size category). I returned them and am hoping for a replacement.
