Rated 4 out of 5 by lollyrex New version has pros and cons
I was a big fan of the previous version of this product. The new version is better in some ways, and not as good in others.
The old version had the tendency to get stretched out in the crotch and rear over time. This meant that the panty would creep up during the day into a wedgie. The new version stays put much better.
The old version was much more comfortable. The leg and waistbands relied on sticky strips to hold their position. The new one has tight elastic bands around the legs and torso. These feel tight and uncomfortable by the end of the day. The waistband digs in and creates lumps and bumps at the top, whereas the old version hugged the body more gently.
I will keep these and wear them with some outfits, but these are no longer more comfortable than the Higher Power panty. Since those are cheaper, I will start wearing those much more often.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MelissaW I miss the old design!
I was a huge fan of the old design which advertised medium slimming. Knowing this was super slimming I decided to order a size up, and I still feel like I am being squeezed to death! I also miss the rubbery strip on the old design that held the back in place, the new design does not have that. I will say a pro of the new design is they aren't so saggy in the booty, which was a complaint of many. I liked the old material better; I ordered this one in nude and the back panel is a different material than the front, and almost translucent. I wear the old Hide & Sleek High-Waisted Panties every day and have about 10 pairs. As they start wearing out I am going to buy more of these new design and will likely order another size up just so they are comfortable for day to day wear. I'd be very pleased if they brought back the old though, or at least have some left over that I can buy up before they are gone!

I was very exited when I saw the "new & improved" high-waisted for this panty, so went ahead and order it in black and natural but what I received was a box of disappointment.
PROS: for those of you that have large torsos this is great for you. For those of us that are flat in the rear, is great as it cover s everything and stays in place.
CONS: Don't know why they say it has super level of compression. It doesn't! I have other gardments that are medium level and they do a better job!
It rolls down in the back, WHY CAN SPANX PUT SOME GEL AS THEY DO WITH OTHERS OF YOUR PIECES?

Rated 3 out of 5 by MsErinJ Not overly impressed...
Is it just me or has the Spanx material changed? When they first came out, I bought a pair and they were amazing. They also seemed to be made of a denser material than this product, which was great because it sucked everything in like it's supposed to! This product is only ok. It does have some slimming action in the front, which is nice, but zero slimming action in the back to make an all over smooth appearance, which is unfortunate. I wish I still had my old Spanx because this new model just didn't cut it for me, and at the price, it's definitely a disappointment.
