Spanx Higher Power High Waisted Body Shaper
thnk TWICE !!
size chart needs MAJOR revamping. i'm normally a MED but a LARGE is unbrathable and it way too tight across the middle cutting off circulation. DEFINATELY go up 1 or 2 sizes when ordering. very hard time getting it over the hip area. rather then a split just REMOVE the crotch area totally...please. i needed it for surgerical reasons.
Top Band Redesigned and ROLLS DOWN
I have worn this shaper for years and ordered a new one, but am incredibly disappointed with this last one. The top band has been redesigned and has no grip. It rolls down, especially in the back. It is very uncomfortable, so unfortunately I will return it and search for another brand.
Once again I am returning Spanx. I follow the size chart to the exact size I think I need but, as before with this product, they are too small. I size up, size down, they just never fit me! And I'm not huge, but this brand just does not ever fit my body! I have no problems with other brands on QVC, wish they would insist that Spanx use the Q measurements/size charts. No more....I'll stick to my "store brand" and not have to return them. Sorry, Spanx doesn't work for me!
LOVE THIS PRODUCT!
I absolutely love this product. For me, it does deliver. It's very comfortable and does allow me to fit more comfortably into my clothes as well as gives me a feeling of confidence that I had lost. I admitt that I am a little disappointed in the way that the threads have come loose in the waist band, but I believe it is more of a body type issue. I have very big hips and wide legs. I have to struggle to get into it, therefore the threads break. I plan to try going up a size and see how that works. I suggest maybe washing the garmet out by hand and letting it air dry. While it may not seem practicle, it will extend the life of your spanx product, as well as any other delicate garmet. This was my first experience with spanx, but I am sure it will not be my last. Thank you QVC.
Love the Spanx
I wore these on Thanksgiving, They were very comfortable and there was no rolling down or up didn't even realize I had them on. My daughter also wore them under a very fitted dress and she loved them. Would buy again and recommend these to anyone who feels they need a little help.
too short in waist
I purchased several items from the spanx line and I bought my size as directed from the chart. It is a struggle to get them on, only to find out they don't "stretch" to reach under my chest as pictured. The body suit was just the opposite, it is too big and sag's at the legs and arms and there is no support what so ever. I haven't tried the dual sided tights yet...I fear for 3 strikes. I will stick to purchasing these at Kohl's, where you are able to try them on AND they run between $15 to $20 less. Very disappointed in this product.
Size fit very well. Felt very comfortable in them. Easy to get on and off.
Disappointed with Spanx
This was my first experience with Spanx and I have to say, I would not recommend this product to my friends. I used the sizing chart provided. Based on my height and weight, I was almost into a smaller size, but chose the actual size in which my statistics fell. There was no way those buggers were going on. I returned them for a larger size, which according to the sizing chart should be extremely big on me. I am waiting to see if this next size fits better and also to see if QVC charges to return the item.
I recommend a sizing chart with measurements rather than height and weight since everyone's weight is distributed differently.
I did like the open crotch feature however as I was having nightmares about how to don and doff them at a formal party with an evening gown.
Confort without bulk...
I tried Spanx for the first time after having tried several other brands of shapers. I am very pleased with the purshcase. I wore them on a fairly warm summer day (80 degrees) and did not feel 'overheated" wearing them. They give just the right aomunt of smoothing without making you feel uncomfortable. I did not have any problem with the band or legs rolling up. After a while you forget you're even wearing them! Give them a try ladies. I bought my normal size but if you want even more comfort you can size up.
Can't go wrong
Can't go wrong with Spanx under your nice maxi-dresses!..
Pretty good, but not great
These hold you in nicely. However, they do roll down.They come up under your bra, but then as you move they roll down, especially in the back. I'm forever trying to pull them up. You don't get sausage legs as much with these as you do with other products.
Not for me!
It did not fit. It was too big.Had to be sent back.
