I fall on the line of C and D so i ordered a D. I am 5'5", 180 pounds, size 12. I just wanted these to wear with dresses to avoid thigh rub. These were tight! And there was serious roll down just by trying them on and walking around in my room bending over to test them for rolling. My guess is to try an even larger size.

I bought my first pair of these about a month ago, and if I'd written this review then, it would be a very different review. I have a couple pairs of Spanx Slim Cognito Mid-Thigh Shapers, which are fabulous and similar to these but quite a bit more constricting, so I loved that these are more casual and relaxed. They are extremely comfortable, don't roll up or down, and do exactly what they say they do. I was so thrilled at first that I ordered a couple more pair. I've probably worn the original pair 1-2 times a week in the past month, so they've probably been washed about 6-8 times so far, always on delicate cycle, always air dried afterward. Well, after only a month, they're starting to fall apart. They have a large hole in one of the seams, and I noticed a huge run up my backside this morning. Nice. So now my opinion has changed drastically because for the price I really thought they'd last more than a month. The Slim Cognito version I mentioned above are about twice the price, but they've lasted two years now being washed and worn with similar frequency. So I'll enjoy the remaining two pair of these, but after they're toast I'll be looking for something else or buy more of the Slim Cognitos. In short, if you don't mind paying for a pair for panties that you'll need to toss out soon, I'd encourage you to buy them because they are wonderful while they last. If, like me, you're going to be annoyed when they start falling apart, I recommend you don't.

These are awesome! I bought these for when I am riding my horse for a little more protection between me and my breeches. These panties are absolutely amazing and very very comfortable. I also wore them under my exercise tights for dance class, and they kept everything smooth and secure. Highly highly recommend!!!

At 5'4”, 115 lbs., I just need something under clingy dresses and skirts to hold everything in place. These do the trick nicely, but so do nylons cut off above the knee. Of course, these last longer but they are pricey (thus the 4 rating).

These spanks are great. They do run small so I would suggest if you are between sizes you go up a size. If you don't they tend to roll down and cause more bulging. They would be even better if they were just a little taller and reached to under your ribcage. But they are comfortable and definitely get the job.

I am 5'7'' and 140 lbs. I ordered the size C first (that's what I fell under according to the chart), and though they were OK, they were not too slimming. I then ordered the B, and these are much better. I should have known the first size was too big when I was not the least bit uncomfortable wearing them! Hope this helps someone out there with sizing.

This is one of the best, but not the best, slim wear I've had. I get mine to prevent chafing when wearing dresses, so it's important the fabric is nice enough to not 'swoosh" when I walk. This one does not, thankfully! I sized up to 2x from my normal 1x and it fits like I like, no sausage for me, thank you. Zappos is the greatest place to get something. I always check them no before making a purchase of an item from another site. Zappos often beats the cost because of the free shipping and the package always comes the next day!

Wore them with a spandex material dress and really helped hide the "jiggle". Seamless and no lines showing. Only issue is that the waist band rolls down.

These "power panties" work okay, but there are couple of problems. First, in certain dresses you can see the waistband at the top. Second, the leg bands at the bottom sometimes roll up. Finally, they do a good job at smoothing, but I'm not sure how much shaping they do. I'm a size 2/4 and I could not tell a difference in terms of shaping with or without them.

I bought this over the summer to wear under a bridesmaid dress and it was absolutely great for that. No rolling up, tight, but not deathly tight, and as comfortable as these things could be. Now I've worn them a handful more times (no more than 10) and only 3 months later, they're falling apart. The seams at the crotch have begun unraveling and there are already holes! The inner lining has separated and I'm going to have to junk them. I always washed by hand, too.

After having two children I've had the hardest time trying to "work out" my lower abdominal area. Seems I have a pudge or what I tend to call "My Baby Pouch" I've heard so many great things about SPANX brand and was excited to find them here on Zappos! Ordered them and wore them under a snug maxi and wore them under some very form fitting work out clothes and wow! Perfect hour glass shape and these also lifted my Buttox. Talk about easy to slide off.

I love the feel and they really do hold everything in. I wish I knew about these years ago...the biggest plus is that they are comfortable, while still getting the job done!

Awesome product! Keeps my front pouch tucked in and lifts my butt to make it stand out! Not flatten it like some garments. I got many comments on my figure the last time I wore it under my slinky ivory dress! Made me feel real sexy.

These things will suck in anything that you don't want poking out in short, they work! And they aren't really uncomfortable either. You can breathe in them and everything, which is more than I can say for some other waist whittling products out there today.

Bought them to wear under a tight fitting dress for a wedding they were great as they did not add much bulk--felt like a panty hose control top mostly but they did the job and did not roll down at the waist or up at the thighs. I do believe that they are not very sturdy and probably would only get a few wears out of them but they were worth the price to look great in the dress.

These Spanx are fantastic! They pull you in to create a smooth line in any dress, no matter how form-fitting. I'm very trim and still use Spanx to keep my silhouette seamless. I will definitely purchase more Spanx products in the future!

Spanx In-Power Line Super Power Panties, really do the job! They hold in anything that you may feel self conscious about when you are wearing something that is form fitting. If you find yourself on the cusp of being between sizes -- please order the larger size, because the Spanx line of shape wear really means business. I have tried other brands that are laughable now that I have tried Spanx. It's no wonder that celebrities wear these on the Red carpet! Spanx rocks!

These are awesome! I've read a lot of the hype about the Spanx products, mostly with movie stars using them to keep it in. Finally they are affordable, so got a pair. LOVE THEM! Cannot believe that they don't ride up, don't bind at the waste & aren't too hot. What's not to like?

If you've never used Spanx, you are missing out. They are slightly uncomfortable because they are snug. But they are great at covering panty lines. I understand they are also helpful for hiding bulges!

I have these in both black and the beige color. I have used these under clothing for years and needed a new set. They do not roll and cover panty lines perfectly. Not to mention shape your thighs. I would be lost without my Spank and would not be able to wear 1/4 of my clothes.

I am 5'9" and 145 pounds. I ordered size C and they fit wonderfully. I handle the power panties like they are stockings, and have no problem with them running or getting holes. I had my last pair for 5 years. Even skinny people can use these to wear over panties to prevent lines and smooth out areas that are just a little lumpy. They have good control. You can wear them without panties too if you are comfortable with that. This item is a must have in any wardrobe.

Exactly what I wanted. Wonder if the negative comments from others are a result of purchasing a size too small, thus undue strain.

I was very happy with the product. When I got my order there was a tear in a seam. I called customer service and immediately she reordered and went out of her way to "Make it right." I got the reorder the next day and I like the quality is great and price is affordable.

Got these for my daughter, actually (I have several pairs for myself too). They allowed her to wear a silky dress with confidence (the little bit of compression kept her looking sleek). She seemed to find them comfortable and has since worn them with another formal dress. Definitely buy a size up, though, unless you want to feel squeezed.
