Spanx In Power Super Shapewear Set
I normally wear a small or x small. Ordered the size B and the fit is fine. My complaint is with the quality of the lower leg material and stitching on both pieces. One layer of the leg fabric (there are two layers) is pulling away from the panty, and that's after one wearing. Again these were not tight. I had no trouble getting them on, so this is simply poor construction. I can mend them but shouldn't have to.
Really Wanted To Like This Set
...but like many reviewers have said, it's not the best idea to buy them as a set. The higher power fit perfectly according to the size chart, but the super power panty would not fit. Even if I lost a lot of weight it was still way, way too small. There just wasn't hardly any panty there. I went by the chart exactly. Like some have said, I wanted to keep the higher pair and return the other, but they are both ready to send back. I was just glad the higher power fit but that said I am not sure it really did anything to shape. I do think that the higher power panty was well made and it did not roll down.
NOT FOR PLUS SIZE WOMEN
I've been looking for a new body shaper for a while and wanted to see what all the fuss about Spanx is. The garment is not for the plus size woman. It would not surprise me if the Models that wear a size Large is wearing a 2X or 3X in this garment. QVC size 3X is always graciously large on me, this has been the exception. Like another customer's comment...I got one leg in the garment and that was as far as it would go. These garments will definitely be going back. Sorry QVC, would not recommend this to anyone. Very disappointed.
I just don't get it......
I ordered up 2 sizes because I have legs that are a bit heavier. Everything else fits well on this shapewear except for the leg portion. You can see an indentation where the leg ends and meets the skin. Whats the use of ordering a size larger because the rest won't do any shaping. Going back. Just not worth it.
Not A Good Value
Never bought spandex before and never will again. The color nude is dark tan, the weight is very heavy, and the comfort is horrible. Not for me, not in Florida, not for summer use. Sending back and won't give it a try again.
Got it on one leg. Could not get it on the other leg. Will not order again
I tred these again as they are supposed to be new... still did no work form me. Returned
Read Reviews First
Wished I had read reviews before purchasing. This was my first Spanx purchase, and what a bad experience. Could not get them over my ankles. After reading some of the reviews, will not take a chance on sizing up. And, material was too flimsy.
Ordered Size A....I'm 5'3"...weigh 112 lbs... wanted something I could wear so I wouldn't have VPL....It was easy on, BUT....the top band was so tight it was making it difficult to breathe...I wore it for 1/2 hour and then said "Oh, no...." I couldn't imagine wearing this out where you'd be eating..... I realize the band has to be tight to keep it from rolling, but, fashion at the risk of comfort just isn't worth it. Back it goes!!!
This is not my first or second or even third set of spans. I am so amazed at how they are able to hide my lumps and bumps .it smooths my hips butt and guts. Order and see what they will do for you.
Just don't get it!
I ordered 2 sizes larger , and Still way too small. Sent them back. Not for larger women.
Best Shape Wear!
I'm honestly baffled at all the negative reviews. I love my spanx. I've worn them for years. I recently lost 75lbs and these are great to give me shape and smooth out the flab. No difficulty getting them on. They don't cut into me. I wear them almost every day. I can only think that some ladies are trying to wear them too small. I would recommend that you size up. They still provide excellent shaping & are comfortable & easy to put on. The higher power version are my favorite, but the regular are great too.
