Best. Pants. Ever. If I could wear these every day I'd be so happy. I feel snug, tucked-in, and so comfortable. I've never been a fan of the spandex pants, but I fully intend to start a collection of these. You won't regret spending the money. I was nervous about the price, but with the Zappos free shipping and free return policy, you just can't lose.

These pants are so worth the money. I would buy one for each day of the week if I could. In my opinion I look 10 lbs slimmer which makes me want to hit up the gym so I can look this good all the time. Tight but comfortable...I feel supported in all the right places.

These rock! I have been looking for pants like these for so long! First of all, I'm very active and I like things to stay in place when I run. Unlike most pants and shorts, which are way too low cut, these stay in place over my tummy. That's one of the other best parts, they stay in place! They are also extremely flattering. I get so many compliments. Thanks Spanx for once again being a woman's best friend.

These pants are pretty darn slimming through the thighs. Smooth over all that needs to be smoothed over. My only complaint was that when I was trying them on, I could see my black and white stripped granny panties through the tush when I bent over. So they're a tiny bit see-through, but I think the problem is easily solved by not wearing those type of underwear under them. I tried on 3 other pairs of compression/slimming work out pants and these were the most flattering. Super comfy too.

Love these pants ran in them a few times. I am 5'2", wear a size 11 to 13 and bought these in an x-large and these pants have worked great. I also bought the more expensive Spanx power knee pant and when I tried them the waist kept rolling down not sure if it is because I am short. The Spanx active shaping have a shorter waist and I have not had any issues with the rolling. They are comfortable and dry fast as well.

This is my favorite workout pant to date. The smooth front makes it very comfortable and modest without underwear. The bonus is that you also look smooth without excessive compression. The only improvement I would prefer is a little lower waist.

These are not for me. They are surprisingly comfortable despite the very tight fit. Actually they don't feel that tight but LOOK very tight on. I am not comfortable wearing such tight pants around others. But I did like the sleekness it gives you and my little tummy disappeared. I would recommend if you already like these types of tight workout pants. For reference, I am a size 10 in pants and the size Large was the right fit. I am also 5'11 and they hit below the knee.

Wow. I'm just starting to work out again after having a baby and my flabby belly makes me self conscious. These pants change all that! I just got them today so I haven't actually worked out in them, but they suck everything in and eliminate camel toe! Amazing! I want to wear them all the time.

These are by far my favorite workout pant/Capri! The price is high & was my main reason for not ordering sooner. I decided based on Spanx reputation & Zappos service that I would give them a try! I'm really glad I did! They make you look a size smaller & are so comfortable! I wash & dry them on the delicate cycle. I now own 5 pair! I highly recommend!

I was loathe to spend so much on workout gear, but got them based on the advice of a trusted friend. She was not wrong! (Plus I knew that I could always return them if they weren't all that was promised...and a LOT was promised). In my almost 40 years of life, these are the first and ONLY yoga/tights that I have ever worn outside of the house. My lower half (hips/thighs/rear) is my "problem area", but these pants really flattered. They are nice and tight (in a good way) but comfy enough that I have no problem during yoga or aerial silk (tissu) classes.

I was worried that this would be tight around the calves, so I wanted to let others know that it is NOT. It makes the thighs look firm and smooth, without causing pinching/discomfort or ugliness in the calves. I plan to wear this under thin maxi skirts, sheer pants, and on their own (to the gym). So cute. 5"5, 112, and the small was perfect.

LOVE these! I purchased these because I needed a light compression garment post surgery. (Purchased several similar styles trying to find the right garment.) Anyway, the second I put these on I fell in love. So flattering, so soft and comfortable! They are pricey for workout pants but worth it. I've ordered more pairs and will order more. So nice!

I've really enjoyed these pants. They are very supportive, comfortable, and light. I really love the high waist, it gives control but I don't feel like I'm being cinched in half. The high waist also creates a very flattering silhouette and I don't have to worry about constantly pulling up my pants mid-workout.

I just got these in the mail and think they might be my new favorite yoga pants. They are already a wardrobe essential, these babies do an awesome job of tucking and smoothing. I am 5'4" and 180 pounds. The size large feels like a good fit. I wish they were just a little bit longer (long enough to tuck more easily into my Uggs), but they fall about an inch below my knees. I love these pants. If they wash well, I will definitely be buying another pair!

I was looking for something to wear to a zumba class that would hold the jiggling parts of me better than my regular work out shorts. These are perfect-hold me in without cutting me in half. So very comfortable that I hate to take them off. I believe they would work as a legging, as well. They are not that shiny spandex. Plus, I could not believe how fast they were delivered. I ordered them one afternoon and they were at my door the next day when I got off work-and I live in a very rural area. Thanks, Zappos, for a great product and wonderful service.

These are my first Spanx pants and I am so impressed that I will be ordering more! They are beyond flattering, holding everything perfectly where it belongs. For the first time I own leggings I feel comfortable to wear as pants. Although these are advertised as active they look nice enough to be worn as everyday clothing. I absolutely love them!
