Rated 2 out of 5 by TXAmy Top rolls down
This product does a pretty good job of smoothing; however, having to constantly yank at the top because it is rolling down is annoying as all get out. As a previous reviewer wrote, I have bought cheaper ones that did not work as well as Spanx, but were actually a better value for the money. I felt like they were worth what I paid for them. This definitely is not.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ColoradoGRL The worst product i have purchased in a long time.
I thought these looked great. I ordered a size larger so that it wouldn't be difficult to get on and off especially at work. The thin material is nice and not restrictive however the VERY first time I went to put it on I put my thumb right through the material (I don't have long nails# like a cheap pair of pantyhose. The top little band should be wider so that it doesn't roll down. I kept tucking under my bra to keep it from rolling. I have bought some nice garments from Spanx and at this price point thought that was what I would get. I could buy something like this at a fraction of the cost locally and wouldn't be as bummed out by its deficiencies. I contacted customer service and they very nicely said I could return them #GROSS).

Rated 1 out of 5 by 51Grant It rolls...
I was looking forward for my Spanx to arrive but unfortunately when it arrived, it was posted back and returned on the same day. Hope i will get a refund as the packaging was still in order. It rolls at the back while standing up, how much more when one moves...

Rated 5 out of 5 by HollyMim Great for wearing under long dresses!
Love that these are thin enough to wear under long dresses of any fabric and are very comfortable. I wore these all day for a wedding under my bridesmaid dress and no nasty chaffing or anything all day. I am about 5'9", 175 and my only complaint is that the waistband is a litter higher then other high waisted Spanx I have and it makes it a little difficult to get the band to sit in the right spot. I usually go between medium and large sizes so it may just be I needed the M instead of the L I purchased. They are easy to wash and are my go to for under all my longer dresses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Phyllis My first Spanx and it won't be my last.
I truly love this product. I'm from the pantyhose generation, but my younger friends have been trying to get me to break free of them. They may have succeeded.

Rated 1 out of 5 by bboehrnsen Fabric stretches out too soon
Initially I loved the product! It did a wonderful job slimming, but after wearing it just a few times, it lost its elasticity and tightness. I am highly disappointed considering how much this cost. I would not recommend this style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maureen007 Lightweight and comfortable
I've tried other products but all they did was push things around so that I had bulges in other places and they were so uncomfortable. This is so lightweight and comfortable that I don't even want to take it off. It keeps things "firm" and flattens the tummy. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kahley Fabulous, Fabulous, Fabulous.
After reading mixed reviews on MOST spanks products I decided to give this piece a go! I loved it. I am 5ft 2, 130lbs, usually wear a size small. I am not super skinny, but I am not overweight - I have a little junk in the trunk. I bought this piece to wear under a certain few dresses that I have - long form fitting casual tshirt/tank dresses. I could wear them without a spanx yes, and I know it would probably be fine - but what the spanx did was give me CONFIDANCE, and make me feel like a million bucks in these dresses. I didn't feel the need to suck in, or sit a certain way in order to hide the little pooch I have out infront. It smoothed out pany lines, and tucked in my little pooch infront.
As for the rolling issues! I DID discreetly pull the top up a few times throughout the day - yes. As it slipped down a tiny bit, I didn't want any spillage over the top. It is easy to pull up discreetly, or in my dress it was anyway. The rubber around the inside at the top helps a ton, but isn't bulletproof. The legs I was SUPER impressed with the design. It's almost like the fabric is just cut off, there is no seam at the bottom - therefore your leg gets no indentation. I was sitting watching a sweaty dance recital, chasing a 20 month old - so the leg did definately roll up a couple of times. I had to wait until I could get to a bathroom to fix that.
So - is it perfect? No. But it made me feel awesome, and it worth the tiny little imperfections! I don't think 100% perfect shapeware even exists. The truth is, don't read the reviews from people who are not close to your size! Read and trust only the ones who have a similar weight/height to yours to really get a proper understanding to how this might fit you.
