I am Spanx biggest champion, but these High Power Panties that I purchased were not very good quality. After 2 wears they fell apart at the seams. I have never had this happen before. The material used definitely was not the same standard of quality previously used.(I compared them to my earlier pair).
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

By Not a Fan
from Toronto, Ontario
I am 5'2 at 95 pnds,43 yrs. old. I purchased this item to smooth out my lumps. The bottom part of the leg was too loose, the mid section felt great and did it's job, but the upper part rolled down to my waist and therefore I had a HUGE roll as I sat down. I do not wear this anymore for it makes my issues worse. Wore it twice and has never been washed since I won't wear it again so, as for the washing issues others have had I can't comment on that.I feel so disappointed but have found to luv my lumps. Everyone has them so what's the issue then.

complet waste of money
this product is horrible. the seems fell apart after 2 washing, they roll down constantly and I have to always pull them up, I went up a size as they said and they ended up being to big, they don't flatten my tummy at all like other cheaper ones that I have bought at a department store. You sweat horribly in them. You get this roll of fat on the top where this meets your bra. I bought 2 of these and two another model and they all do the same thing. the quality is horrible. They all fell apart after only 2 or 3 washing so much hype about this garbage and totally not worth time or money, I would have sent them back but because of a postal strike, I was told that It was too late and I could not get a refund. DON'T WATE YOUR MONEY ON THIS

Waste of Money
Obviously these panties are from her MUCH earlier years. The material is horrible. It has a huge seam in the front AND back that when wearing a T-Shirt you can see the seam. I'm glad I ordered one size up as I wouldn't have been able to get into my size according to their size chart. I ordered capri body shapers from her US web site (isn't she Canadian) and was hit with a massive shipping charge. However, her newer stuff on her site is so much better. Why she sluffs off her clearance to the Canadian women is insulting - especially at her prices!

These aren't "all purpose" like I wanted
from Guelph, On
I wore these to work with a pair of jeans. They did a nice job of smoothing out the "muffin top". They do smooth and shape as promised. HOWEVER they roll down terribly and I was pulling and tugging on them all day long. I absolutely could not wait to take them off. Definately NOT worth it: The money or the discomfort. I dread the thought of ever wearing these again. I purchased them with the plan that I'd be able to use them under pretty, lightweight dresses and tops and I'm super disappointed they aren't wearable. If you are planning to stand all day long (therefore you won't run into the issue of the waistband shifting and rolling) then maybe these are a good purchase. But I'd reccomend going with a snug fitting cami. It does almost the same job on the muffin top and it's 1000 times more comfortable!

Like this Spanx!!!
I really do like the Spanx power panty for what it does--it smooths out lumps and bumps creating a smooth appearance.I have tried a larger size and my true size and a smaller size-they all eventually bunch a little at the top-which I do not like.But what can I say-I still like my Spanx!!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

not worth the money
Not bad when you first put them on, but as the evening wore on this item became very uncomfortable. It certianly didn't do what it said it would even from the beginning. If you have a tummy, these won't help hide it. Waste of money

I am not a fan of the higher panties. They are uncomfortable (even if you go up a size) and they just push your fat up. I am a petite size 8 so I can't imagine what it does to a plus size. They do flatten you out on your hips, thighs, saddlebags, etc so your outfits do look better depending on what you wear on the top however I am sure you can find more comfortable shapewear.

I'm Fallin Apart at the "SEAMS"!!
I have been a Spanx customer every since their invention but dont know why I keep coming back. Every pair I have purchased have fallen apart at the seams, just after a couple wears!! I, like many other customers, tried going up a size, but still same result... I like the way they make me feel in my clothes, but I have to sew every pair over again myself and then they start to fray away after a couple more wears. Please correct the seams. They need to be improved badly!!!

spanx higher power panties
I have always loved Spanx, but I find the qualityof the Higher Power Panty has gone down. I agree with the other comments about the seams. They need to be better sewen. Mine came apart at the seams, I bought a size larger and the same thing happened. They didn't last a month. I am verydisappointed in Spanx. I also believe that the original Spanx had better control. The open crotch should also be scrapped. Better QualityContral needed badly.
