Rated 1 out of 5 by Jjoyce This is a horrible change from the old product!
The old higher power had MUCH more support than this new updated version. I am a regular online consumer and loved your products. I am sorry to say I will not be able to purchase this item again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mary33 Not happy with Spanx any longer
They keep changing the updating the styles and it's not working! Are they putting spandex in the spanx? Because they sure don't provide the same support they used to. Also, changing the sizing options is very confusing. Why change something that is working for everyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Macki No Gusset
I was shocked to learn that these new "improved" higher power shorts have NO gusset. This is a deal breaker for me. No way do I want to hike these babies up and down to go to the bathroom. Why did they make these without a gusset? Big mistake.

Rated 4 out of 5 by newyorkgirl Great smoothing
This was my first Spanx purchase, and I was pleasantly surprised! I bought this to wear under my wedding dress, which is very lightweight delicate lace, so I needed something that would not show through while smoothing out my tummy. These shorts are perfect! They smooth everything out so no bumps or bulges show under my dress, and you can't tell I'm wearing them. My only concern is the back slips a little so there's a little space between the Spanx and my bra which gives me a little bulge. However, it's so small that I feel like this is something only I notice.

Rated 1 out of 5 by RNAVP Bring back the old Higher Powers!!!
Top rolls down, legs roll up, very little shaping. Miss my old Higher Powers. Very disappointed. Will not purchase another pair.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sewingbee Not for cotton or knit dresses
I ordered this to wear under a knit dress (Tommy Bahama) to a wedding. The dress is not tight but the knit is very lightweight. The fabric that these shorts are made of clings to cotton knits and any kind of cotton dress with a cotton lining. I wanted something where the leg part isn't real long. It seems like there isn't an "in between" length. It's either very close to your bottom or half-way down the leg. I want something that is made out of a non-clingy fabric that goes down the leg maybe 2 inches at the most. I couldn't wear the dress because this clung too much and I didn't have time to get something else. I have another cotton dress with a cotton batiste lining and it clings to this also. Not happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Doreen17 Great light-weight control
I used the sizing chart, found my weight and ordered a large. It is quite comfortable; snug, but I can definitely move freely. There is no rolling down of the top and the legs fit my "ham hocks" great, with no bulging and no riding up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by TeeTee49 Very disappointed
I bought this product in 2 different sizes because the way the chart read it wasn't clear on which size was needed. I returned both sizes as I was so disappointed. I use to order the in-Power Line Super Higher Power short but it appears as if that was discontinued for this product. Big Mistake! I will search elsewhere for shapewear! Very disappointed in SPANX!
