Sizing

By Kathleen

from Nova Scotia

Silver Reviewer

The sizing chart definitely needs to be checked. For one product it states A - G but does not give a chart or the chart that comes up is for small to XXL. I had intended to purchase a few items tonight but because of these charts and the aggravation of trying to figure out what size I would wear I decided to forget about ordering at all. I do agree with a few other reviews about not fitting well if one is 5'3" or under and seems to be geared to taller and longer waisted people.

disappointing

By Nancy

from Newcastle,Ontario

I was at the lower end of the size I ordered based on the chart. Guess what, I could barely get it on. Fix the sizing chart and people might like it. As it stands now it is disappointing.

Was disappointed

By Kathleen

from Nova Scotia

Silver Reviewer

I have tried Spanx on several occasions and I have come to the conclusion that they are not meant for petite women (5'2" and under) who have a few pounds on their body; more than the usual woman. I have tried different sizes but none fit well or felt comfortable. They did not hold in the muffin top and were very uncomfortable. For me, just not worth it.

It does the job well.

By Catnip

from TORONTO

Silver Reviewer

I felt like writing this review since most of them are negative. I only need control in the waistline, that all, nowhere else. This provide the smoothness & control around my tummy. If it is not for the price (wish its around $35) I would order a couple back ups.

Re: Sizing way off!!!!!

By JOANNE

from WINDSOR

Sizing way off, do not purchase..

I purchased this product in a size B...it was too large.
Then I exchanged it for a size A. They did not have the nude
color, so I purchased the black.
When it arrived ...it was so small that I could not step into it.
This also was returned.
I am still waiting for my return for both products, yet they
have already charged
me for the ship!.
This product is not what is portrayed.

Slims but doesn't hold in the bulge

By Need the suction

from Sarnia, Ontario

They feel comfy and they do get rid of those panty lines, but I don't think they hold in that extra flab like a girdle should. Going to the washroom is also a chore!

Very Comfortable

By Dee

from Toronto,Ontario

I have never purchasded anything from Spanx before, but really needed something to hold me in. After reading several reviews I decided on the higher power brief. It is a bit difficult to put it on at first, and I found that I was unable to really pull up the back. I would suggest trying to tuck the back underneath your bra, that help me. It was very comfortable, in fact it is the only shaper I have worn which I wasn't dying to get out of after an hour let alone wearing it for the full day at work. It really needs some type of opening at the crotch area though, because when going to the bathroom you have to pull the entire garment off (headache). I also found that after only 1 day the threading on the bottom portion was unravelling :(. This product does smooth out the bulges and is very comforatble which is a plus. You can also wear it under pants or shorts , which I love.

Not true to size, disappointed!

By Patricia

from Toronto

All Star Reviewer

I have ordered Spanx serveral times and had to send them back. I went by the sizing guide and even went up one size, but still showed more lumps and bumps than I thought I had. Sent it back yet again. I guess you have to go up 2 sizes than your normal size.

[...]

By DARLENE

from GUELPH

Silver Reviewer

I ordered three of these believing that they would work for what I wanted them for. Unfortunately, I sent two of them back (kept the one I tried on) because the sizing was way off. I went by the sizing online when I ordered; however, when I got the pkgs home, I noticed that I should have ordered the next size according to the manufacturer (on the pkg). I am going to order one more when they come back, but I will order according to the pkg, [...]. Having said all of that...I love the camis that I ordered; can't wait for them to come back.

Gave me the desired result!

By PATTIANNE

from RODNEY

Silver Reviewer

I have read the other reviews to-date on this item. I am 5'2" and ordered a size A (usually I would order a size B as I wanted maximum compression below the belly button) in nude to wear under a tight fitting black dress for an upcoming event. It fit great and although it did bother me at first to have a high top garment on, I got used to it. I would NOT wear this item with a bra though! I found that as soon as I put on a bra, because I am short-waisted, the back started to roll and my husband could see the back band mark on the outside of my dress, not to mention the space between the bra and the Spanx garment. I instead opted for the adhesive strapless bra method (great bra you can buy from LaSenza!) which worked great. It was all of a sudden much more comfortable and I looked completely smoothed out all the way up in this dress. Give it a try but forget a regular bra!
