Rated 4 out of 5 by MellyMom Comfortable and smoothing
I did like this and would definitely recommend it! Bought this to wear under a strapless evening gown, but I didn't need a bra because one was already built into the gown. I had used another Spanx product (don't think they even make it anymore) years ago with this gown and didn't like it because it rolled down at the top. This one didn't do that at all and it was very comfortable. The material is lighter weight and didn't make me as hot as the other product. The sticky stuff they use at the top of the garment worked like a charm! The material at the thighs didn't bind or dig in and created a very smooth line on my legs. Only two issues (and I use the term "issues" loosely!) were: 1) Going to the bathroom…couldn't pull it down because there's no way I could get it back in place under the fitted bodice of the gown and there are no hooks at the crotch and 2) It was slimming and smoothing, but I don't think I'd put in the "super" category. I will wear it again!

smoothes out the jiggly places, that have taken me years to make and as hard as I try to exercise them off, it took your product to smoothe them out

Rated 1 out of 5 by Elise21 Awful! rolls from every opening
This is the worst Spanx product I have ever bought - it rolls down at the waist causing a painful band around the tummy. It also rolls up at the thighs, causing a roll of fabric to be visible under clothes. I would return it if I could, a total waste of money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MissTrixie Not so hot
I have one of those hourglass figures, but need a little smoothing for to look my best in tailored clothes. I loved the silkiness of the fabric, however, the top rolls down immediately creating a noticeable roll right at the waist and a nasty back lump and bump everything the product is supposed to be preventing right? The inability to stay in place makes the item uncomfortable to wear. Thankfully, I did not buy this item from Spanx directly so I can now put a certain retailers super customer friendly return policy to the test. For the price I truly expected much more from this product. Kind of sad too because this was my first Spanx experience.
That being said, I also purchased the open bust tank from the same slimplicity line and I do like that item. Just need to find a high-waisted bottom slimmer that stays in place.

Rated 2 out of 5 by LoveMySpanx Great idea, but the panties constantly roll down from the midriff to the waist.
I would return these if I could, but I've already worn them. :( Here's the deal: the high waist rolls down all the time. Constantly. It creates a nasty lump of back fat as it bunches up and rolls lower and lower.
I think one small change might make all the difference: there is no clear, "grabby" elastic to enable a better grip at the high waist. I think maybe if this element was added, perhaps it would grab and stay up in place better? Just a thought.
In the meantime, the only way I will be able to use this product again is by buying and trying out the Spanx super power slip to wear over it---perhaps that will help to keep the waistband up? Has anyone else tried this fix-it option? It will be an expensive fix if it doesn't work. Love to hear from anyone else who has found a way to work this out--

Rated 2 out of 5 by boxers doesn't stay in place
I really would like to return this product. I have found that is does not stay up, slides down, which makes it impossible to wear.

Do not waste your money. This product is awful--rolls around your waist and is very uncomfortable.
