Rated 4 out of 5 by Anginspanx great fit but sheer - more like well-made tights
These are very well made, but you can see through the rear, and they aren't tight on me. I bought size/med in backdrop black. I'm 39, 5'7" 135 w/an athletic build, smaller chested but w/curvy waist/hips. Although these are a little sheer in back, they're very well made and very long, which I like. I have a 30-31 in. inseam and wear 32 in. inseam on jeans. If you have short legs/inseam, these might be a bit long so maybe go w/the capri option. But these are well-made and look great, just plan to wear a long shirt.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anne24 Not a keeper
I already own a pair of the Structured Leggings in black, which I highly recommend but wanted a pair of grey leggings. Firstly, these appear medium grey on my computer but they are dark grey in person, I would call them a graphite. The fit was not slimming, as many other reviewers noted, but I would keep them just for the fit on the stomach as they eliminate muffin top and create a smooth tummy area, however, at the slightest bend from the waist you can completely see through the bum. I wear longer tops but you need something that goes inches past as these are completely see through in the bum. Unfortunately I now have to pay to ship these back when I would consider this a major design flaw if you want to call these leggings and not footless tights.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Miriamghostwriter Very comfortable but not much hold
I love the texture and style but I am very disappointed in the amount of control. I don't feel or look like anything is being controlled. Maybe it's my height (I'm very short) but started with mediums, exchanged for smalls and still don't feel much shaping. That's particularly disappointing because this is Spanx.
I'm keeping them because they feel good ... and I love the colors, but I can't wear them as I hoped. Will need to stick to long and loose tops.

I have been wearing leggings for years in the winter and I have to say these are the very first ones I have tried that I am not pulling and tugging at all day! The contoured waist band is perfect! No overhang at all! The ankle stays put in the boots as well! The knit somehow hides any evidence of overindulgence too!! Aaammaazziinngg! thank you Spanx!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JPF327 Best Leggings Ever!
I have been looking for leggings that aren't see through and that don't cause any skin hangover whatsoever. I was in Nordstrom yesterday and the sales girl insisted that I try these on. I was extremely hesitant because I have other Spanx products and I did not want something that was going to be super tight all day. After I got into the fitting room and tried these on I can honestly say I have never been more comfortable in my life. I wanted to walk right out of there and wear them home. I could seriously sleep in these things - they are AMAZING! I am now on Spanx website buying the brown pair because Nordstrom doesn't carry that color. BUY BUY BUY! You will not be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by sharona Another Spanx Staple!
These leggings are very comfortable with full coverage and shaping power just in case your tunic top rides up! As compared to the former leggings that didn't have a long life span due to tears in seams, these look perfectly constructed to last a long time!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bleubook comfortable but not "shaping"
I'm undecided about these leggings. According to the size chart I'm just at the very beginning of the "medium" size and I feel that while very comfy, I don't see any shaping at all. I'm considering returning them for a smaller size...but I'm really not ever a size small...ANYWHERE.
I may keep them to lounge around in.
I do really like the waistband. There is absolutely zero bulge.
The fabric is soft and stretchy and matte with a very light rib look to it.
