Spanx Higher Power High Waisted Body Shaper
Love my Spanx everyday!
I wear Spanx under everything... Gym clothes, dresses, pants etc. holds my tummy in and supports my back ... I like the tummy control better in the Higher Power more than the Super Power
I have tried many shapers. This one beats them all hands down. I resisted Spanx in the past due to the cost. It is worth every penny, and not much more expensive then the others.
Comfortable but effective
I wore these to a wedding and had them on for almost 12 hours and practically forgot about them. They were easy to put on and they didn't roll at the top or at the thigh. I was even able to use the bathroom with ease (the one thing I was really worried about). I tucked the top under my bra and wore them over my thigh high stockings. Very smoothing without feeling like a stuffed sausage or overheated. Follow the size chart as you would for pantyhose. Good purchase!
As many of the other reviewers have mentioned, these run small - unless you want to sweat before you even get your clothes on, size up if you're on the cusp! Once I got them on, they were very comfortable around the tummy and legs. The band around the top under the bustline was a little irritating but it covers backfat, so I can't complain. I'm glad I tried these.
I have been wearing this all day, has not rolled down or rolled up on the legs! I ordered my actual size from the size chart and it is perfect. I am 5'3 140 and ordered the B size. Just ordered another to have as a spare!
A MUST-- ORDER ONE SIZE UP !!!
Well, to all those wonderful QVC gals that said in their reviews to order ONE SIZE UP, THANK YOU!
If I had ordered my size, I would have NOT gotten these over my thighs.
The size up fits nicely tight but its SPANX. If it didn't fit tight it wouldn't be doing its job. I LOVE them. Great control.
I've been wearing the black all day and they are comfortable the waist is high, not riding down and I have NO bulges! I FEEL good cause I know I look better wearing them.
And the crotch? Well you know that was a female idea, I LOVE IT!
I'm thrilled and will reorder SEVERAL as I may not take them off except to wash ....
Returned...SIZING WAY OFF
Disappointed in the sizing! It's way off! I'm 165 lbs, 5'5" and even sized up to a D! Seems like I have to size up to an F which doesn't make sense by the Spanx Size Chart. I do need something exactly like this and love the high waist but I just don't want to pay for shipping again. Also the material is light weight which is good for summer but it was like I just cut off my pantyhose.
sizing needs improved
Purchased for my daughters wedding. Wish I would've gotten one size bigger. Was too tight and had a hard time breathing when I sat. Other wise it did do the job.
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.
