Spanx Hide and Sleek Set of 2 Essential Camis
I am very happy with this set. I plan on ordering some more in another color.
Best that I have found
I have tried numerous shapers. These are probably the most comfortable. I especially like the feature of no rubbery elastic around the arm pit area. Also, the ones that cut beneath the bust are uncomfortable and look unnatural. I prefer the criss cross style, and the scoop neck is good as well. If you are looking for super compression....these are not for you. These two shapers are more suited for smoothing and giving support where we need it. I have ordered 2 sets....black and nude. They look nice under everything.
I purchased this set in both colors, and I am so glad I did! As recommended, because I wear a size small in tops, I purchased the size medium (for reference, I am 5' 1.5" and 138 pounds). These camis fit me perfectly. The length is just right for me to tuck into my pants, and the compression level is not too tight, and not too loose. I don't experience smashed breasts, but I wear a size 36B bra, so maybe I'm not busty enough for that to happen. When I wear the cami, I like how it makes me feel smooth and held in. I'm so glad I splurged on these!
Good but could be better....
I bought these with the hopes of controlling my mid-area. Well, they sort of give compression but not enough. I guess I need to purchase the mega ones that are more expensive... I like them for more than subtle support, but I really need the mega ones!
Great product Sara Blakely!
Really Like Them
I would have given a 5 but wish they were a little longer, since they may roll up at times a little (but I have a long torso).
My 2 favorites!
I wear these every single day. I wear a 1 X . They take the place of a bra for me since I had nerve damage in an auto accident. Am so grateful qvc is selling them in sets now. Will save money. Would love to see them in the white and pale pink too.
I have them in white, purchased separately, and need a 2X. for the white. Don't know why it seems to run small.
I bought these, looking for a little coverage under some of my thinner t-shirts and blouses as well as provide some support. As others have stated, there is more compression in the breast area than I would like, but I think the support/compression in the waist line is very good. These are not as long on me as they show in the picture, however, I am tall and that might be the reason why.
No shaping in these
I can't believe I wasted so much money on these. No shaping is going on what so ever. I ordered by size chart, stepped into them, basically all that was recommended but got no results. Unfortunately I took them on vacation with me and waited to long to return. Kathleen Kirkwood is a much better brand than this one which is nothing but hype and marketing.
I think spanx are the absolute best. I have tried many different brands and always come back to spanx. I don't understand the poor reviews. These give just enough hold but not too much. They keep my midriff from wiggling and hold my stomach in just a tad.
I am so glad to see you sell them as a set so I can save a little bit of money when I buy replacements which is not too often. They do last a long time.
I was so excited to get this order. I was so disappointed when I got this order. The round neck cami not only holds your hips and waist in, it crushes your breasts. Isn't that what every woman wants? I am sending it back right now.
I bought these with the understanding that there was only medium compression, so it would not work miracles. I am disappointed that it rides up at times. The U cami does smoosh the breasts, so I find myself wearing the cross over more. You can wear your normal bra under these, but why add another layer, if it does not add compression? I love the way it washes and the quality of construction. I think in the summer it will be warm and not wick away the moisture as advertised. I gave it 3 stars because I enjoy just slipping it on and not having to adjust bra straps, and the material and construction are fine quality. I probably won't try another Spanx.
Excellent for light support
I'm pleased with the camis. if you want strong support and have heavier rolls to hide then this may not be for you. I however wanted light support, not something that would squish me. I orderered one size up from my usual small to the medium and that works for me.
It gives me a smoothed out and more polished look under knits and light weight fabrics. I need a bra with the v neck but that's alright.
