Back to top
from Nova Scotia
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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

It does the job well.
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Re: Sizing way off!!!!!
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 nudecolor, 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 theyhave 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!

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!
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.

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!
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!

I was so excited when this product arrived today that I tried it on right away. I was disappointed when it didn't eliminate my muffin top above my jeans, flatten my stomach or cinch in my waist. I also couldn't pull the back of it all the way up on my own and had no one to help me.I suspect that I'm too short for these briefs as another poster has suggested. I'm 5' tall and 110 pounds and would love to find a shaper that actually works for me.

not right size
from MEDICINE HAT
This is not true to size. It was way to small. I ordered 2, one for my daughter in law too. They fit the same way on both of us. The next size up looks way too big.
