Spanx In Power Super Shapewear Set
PEAR SHAPED ...GO UP at Min 1 - 2 SiZES
I am a pear shaped person which means my lower half is much bigger than the upper half 16 top 20/22 bottom. QVC reviews save me every time, before I ordered this item I read the review. Normally I am a size E in spanx and this item is a SUPER SPANX which means it is much firmer and has less GIVE. Upon reading the reviews some ladies mentioned that this item ran small and they could not "FIT" their "normal size. Some ladies even said GO UP TWO SIZES, so I ordered a size G. Well THANK GOODNESS I did order the size G, it fit me comfortably, and I KNOW for a fact that the E size (I would not have been able to get in them) and the F size (would have been uncomfortable for wearing for a long time). The G Size is not loose but fit comfortably for me to wear to work all day. I wear my spanx under 90% of my summer dresses to eliminate the visability of the lumps, cellulite, and more firmness. DO I RECOMMEND -- YES, this item is super spanx so please go up at least one size. IF you are more straight up an down I'd still go up one size, if you are PEAR SHAPED, please please go up at least two sizes, this recommendation will allow you to wear this item all day with comfort.
RECEIVED MY SPANX...AM I SO GLAD THAT I DIDN'T WAIT TO TRY THEM ON.
BASED ON THE OTHER SPANXS I'VE HAD OVER THE YEARS...THIS IS THE MOST TERRIBLE PAIR/SET I'VE EVER RECEIVED. I ORDERED MY REGULAR SIZE AND COULD NOT GET THEM UP THE THIGH. THEY ARE IN THE MAIL FOR RETURN!!!
Hated The Waist Cincher
I have worn Spanx for years and loved them. Thought I would try the waist cincher ones as I have gained weight around my middle and some of my clothes could look better on me. They are horrible. They roll down constantly and are very uncomfortable. I would return them but I have worn them and that just doesn't seem like the right thing to do. I am sure they are ok if you have no extra weight around your middle, but then, why would you need them. They are going in the trash, unfortunately.
Glad I didn't buy according to the reviews
Whew! I am so happy that I ordered the "Spanx in Power Super Shapewear Set" and did NOT pay attention to the negative reviews. I plan to wear a pair under my Mother's Day outfit.
What is all the Fuss About Spanx???
This is my second purchase of a Spanx product and I just don't get what all the fuss is about. This product was one of the most uncomfortable things I've put on my body. Like a few others have said, getting it over my thighs was a battle and once on it was extremely uncomfortable. In addition, it did nothing for my shape! Returned and have learned my Spanx lesson.
PLUS SIZE GIRLS! NO WAY
I'm a plus size girl. I carry my weight in my hips and thighs. As hard as I tried, I could NOT get these pass my midthigh. Tug tug tug, pull pull pull, could not get these on for love nor love.
Opened pulled it out of the bag and it already was falling apart at the seams.
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.
