Rated 5 out of 5 by dpcarr This product does have great features BUT...
I truly did not care for how it felt up under my arms...it felt slightly small and for that reason I sent it back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DesertM00n Not for petites
Spanx!!! Make stuff for petites! I ordered this last winter. Liked the feel of it but I'm short-waisted so a lot of things are too long in the torso. Still, the slimming part was comfortable. Thighs didn't roll up, I liked the way the fabric felt and I felt I was getting nice control and support, but I had such trouble with the straps. It's like the garment is cut too wide in the shoulders for us smaller-framed girls. The straps show, they cut under the arms, or they just don't stay up. If you're short-waisted or your figure is not in proportion (I am heavier on the bottom than on top, at 5'2") this might not work for you. I checked off "feels slightly large" because there was no option for "feels slightly long".

Rated 4 out of 5 by Summer I rate it an 8..see why;
I am petite, a size 2. Yes, I still need/want a smoother look. I ordered a size Small. I wore the shaper today for the first time. I loved the silky feel. My dress did not cling to the material. However, the shaper did not provide the compression or tummy control that I had expected or had hoped for. I came home after to work to order a size XSmall, but the smaller size option was not available. I also ordered a bra. It did not have adjustable straps. Because I'm petite, the bra would be awesome if I could adjust the straps to fit me correctly and provide the support I need.

Rated 2 out of 5 by KimH Had to send it back
I really liked the way the thinner material felt and the fact that the legs didn't roll up, but the straps at the top stuck out so far that you could see it under my arms. My dress was sleeveless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cookiek2 Great Fit!
I am very pleased with the light weight and fit of this garment. It gives me a smooth line under my dress without feeling restricted. I wish I would have purchased this a lot sooner.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Kimwit Weird cut
The armholes were cut way to high up and over to the side. They showed in every top and dress I tried. Too bad because I loved the lightness of the material and how well it looked under clothes. Spanx, please redesign this!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by JJackson64 I like the product.
I have had no problems with my Spanx. They are super light weight and do a wonderful job of smoothing out any lumps or bumps that might show.
The one thing that DEFINITELY needs to be "fixed" is the strap issue. For the price I paid for these this should not even be something I have to thik about. When Spanx fixes this issue, I will buy a pair of the new and improved product.
In the meantime, I will enjoy the pair that I have.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Eden Great look with a big problem!
This is great fitting and slims wonderfully. However it does have a big problem that everyone who orders it should be aware of. It is extremely delicate and easy tears. After reading previous reviews, regarding the faulty fabric, I decided to order them anyway and be very, very careful with them. I even ordered a size larger (XL) than I usually wear hoping to get the smoothing affect without stressing the fabric. I was so happy to wear them and see the very slimming affect they have but I was totally disappointed to see that one leg had a 3" tear when I took them off. Final word: these give a great affect but are just too much money for only one wearing!
