Caveat: bought these at a MAJOR dept. store, retail. I own a number of SPANX products, and love all of them, EXCEPT these.
Most embarrassing experience!
Purchased these for my Maui vacation - silly me - I thought that because they are a great brand, they would actually BE great. I am a normal size woman - nothing out of the "normal" range (whatever that means). I was assisted by a MAJOR FULL PRICE RETAIL department store salesperson who told me they "positively are your size". (Size B, I'm 5'4", 130 lbs). And they seemed to be, but....
First day in Maui: wearing a cute little dress and the legs of the SPANX Thinstincts® Mid-Thigh kept rolling up. The waistband kept rolling down. AND you could see the rolls outline under the simple dress I was wearing every time I walked, sat down, got in and out of a car.
Popped into a boutique at the Wailea Shops, bought some other underwear, and as soon as I can wash these - THEY ARE BEING RETURNED to the MAJOR Retail Store. These SPANX are really expensive panties, basically, that don't perform as promised. Or at all.
I was mortified.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sharbaby feels like wearing a wet suit
I do not like the new fabric at all. I much prefer the old hosiery type yarns. this is too much like plastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gimmeproof Gosh - can I get these in a capri length? WOW.
I looooove these new spanx. They are sleek, smooth, and oh so light weight! I don't even feel so compressed - just smoooooth.
I so wish I had these in a capri length - they would work so well as 'thermals' under my pants in the winter. Right now, I use a pair of the tights (spanx) for that. They are amazingly warm and keep me looking smooth while wearing a double layer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by scrap12 great product
I stopped wearing shape wear because it was binding and uncomfortable but these are light weight and you dont notice that you have them on!

These pants are perfect! Very smooth look under clothes, super comfortable, flat seams, great tummy control, thighs don't roll up like some others I have purchased. Will be buying more!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Hilbh Great Material but inconsistent sizing
I purchased a total of 4 thinstincts mid thigh spanx (2 black, 2nude). The product material is fantastic under light weight summer skirts. Not too hot and not too thick. My issue is in the manufacturing. The sizing is terribly inconsistent. One pair is constricting in the thighs and feels like rubberbands constricting my blood flow. Another pair is to big in the waist and thus doesn't suck in my stomach. The other two pairs fit perfectly. Until spanx perfects the manufacturing I would not recommend the purchase of this product. Too expensive for the fit to be not right.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lisalisa Great for summer, I like this one.
I purchased this item looking for control that feels comfortable for hot summer days. This is just right because it it not to tight and lightweight.
It does give medium control-meaning it not going to feel very firm.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Caliblue Need Petite Sizes
I recently returned a pair that got a hole in them, Spanx was very good about supplying a refund to credit online. So, I ordered exactly the same garment, but it is slightly big and doesn't hold me in tight enough.
I feel that the product control may not be to good with this company, at least within my experience.
I also wish that they provided petite sizes . I am average weight, but my legs are not long, so there is always too much length for my leg.
