Slim Cognito Span worth every penny!
from Toronto, ontario
Had to come and comment the shopping channel for such quick shippment. I could not believe how fast it arrived at my door step. I love this spanx, its soft and really does work. I was a bit cought off guard by the hole in the crotch, I also thought I had ripped it putting it on. I had to come back on and read the discripton again to find out if its made that way. (Im guessing its for Washroom Purpose)...It also does not roll down or up. Mine fits like a glove. I can't wait to purchase another one..
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I used it primarily under an evening dress. I was not impressed with the hole in the crotch, initially I thought I had ripped it putting it on. It took a great deal of effort to get it in place, but it was well worth it. The garment also gives you better posture with the compression, so that was a plus. The shaper band near the bra did not roll down as I thought it might. I do really like the product.
Works well, but wants to roll down.
from Nova Scotia
Loved this product, and buying it first time with a fabulous sale made it all the more risk-free. It has INCREDIBLE slimming qualities (yes, buy the size recommended, no more, no less), as described. It DOES want to roll at the top: if your daily activity requires extensive reaching or movement, you'll want to frequently take moments to readjust. If you're out for an evening, it'll be fine, and you'll look great. Under no circumstances would I use the middle strap to hook to my bra: I don't want to haul THAT down! In a nutshell, great for slimming, wants to roll. All around, it works.
from Kawartha Lakes, ON
I like the old Spanx power panties...these are ok, but way too long, and they roll down, too shiny, and the opening in the crotch is useless...i'm saying they are just ok - I might recommend them to a friend, but make sure you get the right size, are tall, and dont dare lose any weight or they are useless.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Medicine Hat AB.
I rolled the garment on like they said. It took a while. When it was on I did look slimmer. The problem was, it started to roll down and there was a gap under under my bra that formed a roll. Not very becoming!! Also, the crotch needs redesigning. I bought a size XL Maybe I needed an XXL. I still have thembut never wear them.

not a great design
the thick band is supposed to stay up and not roll down , but I found that it did slip down. When I attached all the straps to my bra to keep it up it made the sides of my bra bunch up , and the band still rolled in some places making for a thick roll of elastic that showed through my clothing .I also found that the space between the band and the bottom of the back of my bra made for some pretty unsightly "back fat" . I returned the item , but exchanged it for the Spanx Slimplicity Open Bust Mid-Thigh Bodysuit that has shoulder straps to keep it up , hopefully that will work better.

Work Horse of the Line
I have both colors in this shaper. I have purchased other shapers before & after Spanx started. Although each can have their use and merit, this slim-cognito body suit is like a perfect little compression chamber to smooth one out. It can be sometimes difficult to squiggle in, but once on, and adjusted into place, your clothes just glide on and over. It makes an amazing difference. I do have one large "beef" though about the so called large enough crotch space allotted so one does not have to remove the entire suit to use the ladies room. It just isn't possible!! Please redesign the crotch area so the panel between can be unhooked or unvelcroed to create a proper recloseable flap to give the necessary space to be able to use the ladies room. I have not met one individual who has not complained about that part of the design. Either one takes it all down or the alternative is not pleasant. Otherwise is would be a 5/5.

This shaper was great, but I had a real struggle to get it on. So far I have only tried it on several times because I have a problem with it. I am short waisted, and it is too long in the body. I am trying to find a way to make the top of it shorter without ruining the top band, so it doesn't turn down under my bra. Otherwise I was very pleased with the look it gave me under my clothes.

A Real Shaper!!!!
I ordered both the black and the nude. I have worn shapers etc for many years and have some Spanx in my selection. These are certainly an investment, but worth the $$$ spent. They were a little bit of a struggle to get on, but WOW, what a difference they make. They are a real control garment. I wear a lot of fitted pencil skirts and these make a difference. They will also be great under clingy jerseys etc. They are a substantial fabric, so like many of my other spanx will wear a long time. They certainly control from under the bustline right to the knee, perhaps a little higher on you tall gals.I hope to get a lot of mileage fron this purchase. I am happy!!!
