I agree with the previous review that talks about the knit/matte fabric that sticks to clothes. It is not the shiny, silky, slinky looking material featured in the picture. When I wear a cotton or jersey dress, it sticks to it and causes the dress to ride up - very unflattering and I spend the day trying to pull my dress down like I have crazy static cling gone wild.
I usually wear them under scrubs and it sticks to that too. I am 5'3" and wanted something to smooth my tummy and thighs which it does without squeezing uncomfortably. I am usually in the OR anywhere from 8 to 16 hours per day and they are not at all uncomfortable to wear. They smooth gently and are very comfortable to wear.
However, I would also like to add that the material itself is not very durable at all. My previous Spanx experience has only been with Slim Cognito which I have had for over a year and still look brand new. These I have had for less than a month and they have multiple holes and reels everywhere. The 1st time I wore them and pulled them up them snagged and reeled giving a huge hole in the crotch.
They honestly feel like a pair of opaque stocking and snag and reel more easily than a pair of silk stockings do - in other words, they feel flimsy. I hand-wash and line dry in gentle detergent. I would not recommend them if you want something that will last, but if you are planning on purchasing them, please know their limitations and that they cannot be worn under everything and you have to be extremely gentle when pulling them up just like you would have to be with sheer stockings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoseTheMuffinTop Amazing - it's comfortable and does the job!
This is lightweight enough yet supplies the support I need! Need to buy a few more pairs!

Rated 2 out of 5 by iwanttobelieve Misleading photo- fabric is 'knit', not shiny/sheer
This product fits well (I'm 5'7", size 8 on bottom, fit, hourglass shape); I ordered a large.
It addresses the intended problem area (outer thigh cellulite), and stays up much better than the SkinyBritches version of high-waisted short....but I was disappointed with the fabric. The photo appears shiny/sheer, but the product is actually a matte knit- it sticks to the clingy jersey dress I want to wear it with.
It would be great if the fabric were shiny/sheer as pictured, and came in light pink- I'm so sick of nude.
I may return this purchase or may not- thinking about it.....
