Rated 2 out of 5 by Shen Big Disappointment
Of all the Spanx products I've bought over the years, these are the most disappointing. First, there is virtually NO support - I thought these would fit like a longer version of the Power Panties, which cut into my thighs and show a major bulge. Even though the Britches solve that problem, I really want that extra support. Second, the material is quite thin and runs and tears easily - I poked a thumb through them within a week; by the end of the month I couldn't wear them anymore. I am surprised and very disappointed in the quality of these Britches and I do not recommend them.
On a side note, I have just tried the Extended-Length Power Panties and they are nearly perfect - great support and no more bulging at the thigh. I'd give them five stars if they were capri-style to cover my chunky knees. I highly recommend the Extended Length if you are looking for a longer leg length and great support.

Rated 1 out of 5 by lesliek So sheer it tears.
This is the second Spanx product I have purchased that tore by the second wearing -- my fingernails go right through the fabric, in front and in back. This is very disappointing as I had been happy with somewhat thicker Spanx products that don't seem to be available any longer. I am a size 6 -- the tearing was not caused by trying to pull on a too-small size for my frame.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Roseann67 Love this product, will be ordering them in thigh length.
They are thin but strong hold. They do not ride up at the calf, leaving no mark of where they end.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Palindrome One too many layers
Thought the product would be more like the Skinny Britches Spanx that hit above the knee. These seem heavier (almost "two-ply" as opposed to "one-ply)". They are too heavy for summer and actually add an unnecessary layer--not impressed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Titi Love this product
Just received it and already love it. It is exactly what i was looking for.
Only small drawback i find is that i wish the waistline had a wider band
so that it doesn't make a dent in your waistline or curl.
I had a similar product in the past that i wore so much under pants that
it is almost see sheer now and i was looking for the same or similar but could not find it until now.
Thank you Spanx !

Rated 2 out of 5 by 1crazycatlady product was much thinner than I expected and not as supportive as I had hoped.
Product was much thinner than I expected and not as supportive as I had hoped it would be. I get more support from the pantyhose that I wear.

Rated 3 out of 5 by RioCarly A Little Disappointed.....
Im a loyal Spanx customer and this was the first time that I was disappointed. I must say that it's thin but it still does its job of slimming the thighs, but it ripped in the seam. The first week I wore it and it was a hot humid day so it was perfect under my Maxi dress. Sadly it was the first and last I wore it.
I gave it a fair rating only because it ripped but as for firmness it does the trick in slimming things down.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bisrots Would not recommend
My nail went right through the material. Would not recommend. Bought two of them and afraid to use in case fabric tears when I am out or working.
