Rated 5 out of 5 by Potomaclady Love thee leggings!
I'm glad I tried these leggings on at the store. They fit perfectly. I'm 5'3 and in between a size 4 and 6 and the medium fit perfectly. I have muscular legs and couldn't ask for a more flattering look. The zipper is a bit of a pain, but it goes up and works fine,

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jacqueline the fit is NOT AT ALL flattering
these are uncomfortable, a waxy heavy material that does not stretch, and they are not flattering for ANY figure. Expensive and not worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jiggly Needs to be tighter!!
If I bought one of every size in everything Spanx, I'd still never keep two things of the same size. I've got size large activewear that are tight tight in the body and still create muffin top. So I've ordered size M, then S, and finally XS in these jean leggings to get a decent fit (and they are still not skin tight-they just feel light regular jeans). Like others, I don't love that zipper, but seriously the top of these jeans fit SO nice, there is absolutely no muffin top! (I'm 5'2 1/2", 108#). So I'm keeping the XS in the regular jean leggings. These wax leggings in the pewter color are so beautiful-there is an iridescent sheen to the fabric. But they just NEED to be tight! Why oh why don't they offer these in XS like the other denims??? If I thought I could get them altered to fit better, I might do it, but it probably wouldn't work). So I'm reluctantly returning them. BooHoo

Rated 2 out of 5 by ED60 Comfortable fabric, good concept
The fit and size L from the waist to the knee works but the lower leg of the leggings below the knee got wider therefore the leggings lose their legging appeal. The zipper is such a problem that it changes the quality of the entire pant. I struggled getting the zipper over the panel seam and the hook and eye didn't help. I was breathless from this challenge; I'm shocked that Spanx is allowing this item to continue.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ShopT Perhaps a size tag mistake?
I ordered the silver in a small and while the color & fabric were great, the sizing was completely wrong. To say that they were too large doesn't quite communicate the problem. The small was sized to the proportions of a pair of men's size 35 jeans. It was like wearing a sack. I hope this was the result of a mistake in labeling and not actual design

Rated 4 out of 5 by sweetcaroline Another zipper complaint!
I ordered these and was delighted with the quality and style. They also fit me perfectly! They hug my curves and cover any muffin top that might try to appear. (I'm 5'3 and 125 lbs. with a curvy backside.) So, why can't I recommend these seemingly fabulous leggings? That's right....THE ZIPPER!! The idea of a zipper on the side is a good one. I love having a smooth, flat front. But, the quality of the zipper is horrible! Like others have commented, it is impossibly to get that wimpy little zipper past the seam. Fortunately, with my pair I can get them on and off without unzipping them all the way. That is why I am keeping them. I am hoping the designers at Spanx are paying attention to this issue because, once this zipper problem is resolved, I will order a pair in every color and recommend them to all of my friends!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Herb Love the feel and the look
I'm 5'7" and, although fit, still have a bit extra spare tire around the middle. These make me feel thinner and fit snug, but not tight, to my hips, thighs and hips. Even though I'm typically an 8/10 I bought the Large and they just fit. Recommend that the zipper be a bit longer and forego the hook closure, always difficult to get closed - maybe a button or loop button closure would be better. Color is great - they look like leather almost. Haven't washed them yet so hoping they don't shrink! All in all, a great buy if you're looking for a comfortable alternative to leggings/jeggings with a jean look and fit but much more stretch and comfort. Great with kitten heels or boots. Will be wearing these year-round and if more colors come out will be buying more!

Rated 1 out of 5 by themel I tried twice, but bad proportions.
They need to redesign the proportions. I ordered the medium (even though I wear a 4-6 everywhere in pants) and they were so tight! I called the company because the zipper only goes down part of the way and then I worried I would break it when I tried to zip. The service was great and they said it sounded defective. I received the second pair- same problem. Both went back. Why have a zipper if it only goes down a few inches?
Poor design, maybe they will get it right after some feedback. Sigh...
