Rated 1 out of 5 by JacGarrett NOT new and improved
Bring the old ones back! I love the old Slim Cognito Spanx, which are smooth, seamless, and do their job without the bulk. I owned 2 pair for 5 years before they started to wear out. I got online to order more only to find the "new and slimproved" version. I ordered them, and could not be more disappointed. There are seams everywhere, the fabric is thick and not smooth at all. I have owned this pair for 4 months and already the fabric is pilling all over, there are several holes in the seams in the crotch and waist band, and the fabric has actually unraveled so bad around the waist band seam that the hem is no longer holding together. I paid over $80 for this pair and now will have to purchase a new pair. I got 5 years of use out of my old ones, and barely 4 months use out of the "new and slimproved" one. It was $80 down the drain, total disappointment.

Rated 1 out of 5 by HappyGoLucky DO NOT PURCHASE THIS GARMENT
Its pretty obvious that the quality has completely tanked with this "updated" version. I have tried 3 different sizes and they ALL failed to provide coverage. The legs are too short. They roll up no matter what you are wearing. There is ZERO compression with this product. You are almost better off wearing a pair of the pantyhose. They seem to provide more compression than this garment. I have been wearing this style of spanx since I had my son 8 years ago and to say that I am disappointed would be an understatement. Cheaper does not always equal better. It is very apparent that they have decided to cut corners to save money. I wonder if SPANX will do right by their customers and return to the old product.?! I wasted over $100.00 ( on two different sizes). Please pay attention to what your customers are saying. We want the old spanx back.!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Muffiin1 Not the same as it used to be
I have been a loyal spanx customer for a while. This was one of my favorite products. New and improved is wrong. Less compression and feels cheaper. My old ones that are years old do a better job by far

Rated 1 out of 5 by winnie Bring the old one back
I like the others loved my old Slim Cognito. I use it for medical reasons, but will not buy another of the new ones. FAR less compression, shorter legs and they roll up. By the time it gets to the top it is stranglng. I'm looking for something else!

Rated 1 out of 5 by skfhsdjkfsdf not enough compression
This is kinda a waste of money. Feels cheaper and doesnt do as much. Also when I put on pants over it it makes the legs roll up. Very uncomfortable. Bought the old version and it was much better and did more. Will not buy from spanx again as all other plus sizes are even less effective. I really liked the old version. This just sorta feels like a swimsuit with legs. The legs are also too short which is very uncomfortable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tracey67 Disappointing
I am very disappointed in this pair of Spanx, They are definitely not made the same. It is not an improvement, it feels more like cutting corners. I've been wearing this item for years, I have several pairs, so when I ordered this one in my usual 1x, I took the tags off and put it in the drawer. Needless to say when I went to use them a month later to go out in, I was surprised when they went on way too quick, felt flimsy and didn't hold me in at all! I am upset because now I threw away the tags and am stuck with this pair. Wasted my money. I now need to order down a size or two, but I don't like the new material so I don't know if I will - I also don't know if this is the new vanity sizing or what they were thinking? My oldest tattered pair of slim cognito's hold me in better than this pair of brand new ones! It definitely does NOT have the same holding power as the old ones, BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL STYLE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Spanxter8888 So Comfortable!
I've noticed one major upgrade to the New & Slimproved Slim Cognito compared to its discontinued counterpart - comfort. The fabric is so soft and the new design updates that were made to the garment contour to the curves of my body like a glove. The greatest part is that is doesn't "feel" like a high compression level garment but after one look in the mirror I definitely "see" that it is a high compression level garment. Also, I love how I'm able to "Build My Own Bodysuit" by easily looping the side straps to the bra of my choice. Since I have such a short torso, attaching these straps to my bra prevents the mid-thigh waistband from potentially rolling. This is one basic shapewear piece that is essential to every woman's wardrobe. I highly recommend it to any first time wearer!

Rated 1 out of 5 by DD17 Not like the old Cognito
I have been purchasing this product for over 8 years now and defiantly loved it, I recommended it to many people. I recently ordered a new one and when I received it of course the color has changed it used to come in Nude but now offered in Rose Gold. Regardless of the color I still wore it and to my surprise the coverage is defiantly NOT the same, it is not as tighter/slimmer around the tummy area nor it does not give the same butt lift as compared to the old Congnito. I was very disappointed with the new change :(.
