Rated 5 out of 5 by Workoutaholic Best workout tights I have ever owned!
I have varicose vein disease and as a result, had to wear compression hose for months at a time. I thought I would try compression tights. I went to a fitness store at the mall and the salesgirl suggested I try these Spanx compression tights; she said they are fantastic. Wow! From the first minute I had them on, I knew these were fantastic! The fabric, stitching, design, ease of washing are perfection. They are expensive, more than I would pay for any workout clothes but I am happy to report they are worth every penny! I have also worn them under jeans in cold weather - much more comfortable than thermal underwear!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Marbear Was my favorite
This has been my #1-go to workout tight. Unfortunately, they are different and are no longer opaque. They are now see through - yikes!! Gets me thinking about the Lulu blunder. Please correct this

Rated 5 out of 5 by Salinwa Great Pants!
Received my pair yesterday and I really like them. I use to live in leggings but it's been a LONG time since I've worn them because as I gained weight I just don't like the fit of other brands I have tried. Especially when they roll down at the waist. I am 5'3", 168 lbs now, I ordered the XL and they fit wonderfully. Snug but not too tight and they were not hard at all to get on and off. I was quite please with how they smoothed out my shape. Doesn't necessarily "shrink" me but it definitely smoothes things out giving a slimmer appearance. I have not worn them for a workout yet but I think they will be fine. The waist comes up high, almost to my ribs. It feels solid like it will stay in place. That will be the real test so we shall see. The XL fits me nicely and will continue to fit for a while as I lose weight. (I'm thinking they might possibly also be very nice (and comfortable as base layer)
Will update when worn during activity if the website allows. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ithaka The BEST Workout Pants!!
I cannot rave about these enough. I have always been very self-conscious in tight workout pants. Either they're too sheer, or too thick or don't come up high enough in the waist.... and the worse thing of all... the dreaded camel-toe!
These pants (I have the long pant and the ones that come right over the knee) are BRILLIANT. They make you look like a million bucks while working out, even if you have lumps and bumps... they really make you look sleek and pulled in (and no camel-toe!) Far and away better than any of the workout pants that Lulumon sells. Spanx, please never stop selling these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JessieS Love them!
For someone who was anxious about getting back into shape, these really helped give me the confidence to get back out there. I purchased the compression knee pant and love the thigh and waist smoothing, but found after wearing them around they just became too short for what I was hoping, so the full length version are the best all round workout pants I have worn!
My thighs are my problem area, so along with smoothing out my thighs, they also flatten and smooth the tummy and give you the little push you need to be able to start working out again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by aussiegirl Best fitting pants I have EVER owned!
These leggings are absolutely amazing! I am so thrilled with them that I will DEFINITELY also be buying the knee-length version for summer. I was searching for a high-waisted pair of leggings to wear during walks/errands/classes. Other (non-Spanx) leggings I have owned have tended to roll down while walking, creating muffin top (so that I can't wear tight tops with them!) and meaning that I am constantly self-consciously pulling them up (also creating camel-toe!!) These leggings stay put because they are truly high-waisted: Not "high-rise", not "to-the belly-button", but reaching all the way up to the narrowest part of your waist, below the ribs. My tummy (which is my problem area) looks completely flat in these and there is absolutely no muffin top, regardless of how long I've been wearing them or how much I've been moving/bending. I would feel completely comfortable wearing these with the tightest, sheerest tank. The leggings are fitted in a supportive way without being uncomfortably tight - everything just feels and looks firm. The lack of center seam is a great innovation also, I was worried it would be obvious and look like the gusset of stockings, however I have found it to be quite inconspicuous. The slight sheen to the fabric and the seams gives these pants a truly athletic look. I have been wearing them constantly, and have received so many compliments. Thank you Spanx, this will NOT be my last purchase! All the hype is well-deserved!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by waltongirl BEST LEGGING EVER!!!
Im 5'2 and 190 pounds. my measurements are 38dd-36-48. I purchased a size XL last week and fell in LOVE with them. I love them so much I refuse to wear my Lysse leggings that were are also a bit pricy. I found my match and Im so impressed I going to purchase another pair. if you are a very curvy especially in the butt area get these pants.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Wendy61 I don't like all the seams on these pants
I had hoped that these pants would be just like the shaping compression knee length pant, but they are not! They have seams running all over the legs that are very unattractive, in my opinion.
If they had been exactly like the other shaping compression pants, i.e. only 1 side seam on each leg, I'm sure I would have loved them. That is what I thought I was ordering.
I had to return them.
