I like that it has a higher rise than other workout pants. However, the waist band does still roll down when exercising vigorously. But better than others. And makes you look 10 pounds slimmer.

I LOVE these pants! I bought them to be a post-surgical compression garment and they worked perfectly, BUT they are SO much more that too! They have a great shaping effect and keep everything in the right place to really accentuate my curves (tummy, waist, rear, hips and thighs all around) and impart a huge slimming effect from my upper tummy down to my knees. I am 5'4" and about 128lb and the small fits me perfectly with a good amount of compression. The garment fits tight - but in the right places which is kind of the point - so it takes a little effort to get them on, but once they're on I find the pants to be very comfortable and supportive. I am still wearing them post surgery -- doctor ordered a compression garment for 6 weeks and I'm in week 4. I've really gotten so used to the feel of them -- the way they accentuate my shape and the support they provide -- that I know it is going to be hard to stop wearing them everyday under my work and other clothes. That said I actually do plan to wear these in the future as workout pants alone as well as under clothes that I want to have that special shaping and smoothing effect (e.g. Tight fitting pants, dresses, etc). I also wanted to compare these pants to other compression/shaping garments I have owned. I have 3 pairs of Spanx shorts - all are made of a thick nylon stalking type material. The shorts are nice and work OK but these pants slim, shape and compress so much better. They also stay put better where the shorts can sometimes roll up the thigh and down in the waste. The shorts can also create a visible line on your outer garmet in the thigh area and the fact that these pants run just below the knee helps eliminate and minimize that issue. In comparison to work out pants, these pants are my favorite compression style. The waist is high and comes above the belly button for complete waist shaping, but important to note as most workout pants these days fit low on the waste so these pants are a little different. I personally like the supportive feel they provide during a workout. I might have to buy another pair! Lastly, these pant seem to be very well made and are holing up nicely to repeated washes over the 4 weeks I have been wearing them. Granted, I have only been wearing them for 4 weeks but ALL day and night for 4 weeks. So far they are keeping their shape and no snags, loose threads, etc. and judging by the way they are made I think they are going to last a good long time. I Highly recommend these pants. They are a little costly, but I am so happy I went ahead and purchased them. They were a great investment in my opinion. One comment to Spanx and the manufacturer-- please make these in other colors. A nude would be great for wearing under lighter clothes. Gray and maybe some fun prints for wearing alone as athletic clothing. Thanks!

I am disappointed that Spanx does not have the cute "yoga" design pants as last year. These are called compression.This fabric is not the same - I preferred the thickness of the previous yoga pants. I wrote to Spanx customer service about this because I didn't want to pay for these if the fabric was not going to have the same awesome features of last years. They never responded to my email. That being said, these knee pants will keep you in place, stay up, cover your belly, and no camel toe. Although I have back up yoga pants, Spanx are the only ones I like.

Smooth fit. No roll at the waist. I feel tucked in not squished. The material is smooth. There is a seam over the hips that longer tops will cover. I don't see it as a problem, but they are not seamless (because of the great support) like most yoga pants.

Great pants. When I first saw them out of the package I assumed I was going to hate them but they turned out to be fantastic for summer. They look great and keep me cool.

I love Spanx, and I have to say the fit and look of these did not let me down. They hold everything in and create a nice smooth upper part, no muffin top. The DOWNSIDE, I run, and after a long run the sweat did not wick away very well and made it look like I had wet myself, eek!

I love these! Now in my mid-fifties, I am still slim but some unwanted bumps and bulges have crept up around the waistline and inner thighs. These pants make me look like I did before! They smoothed everything out and made the bulges disappear without feeling too thick or heavy on! I am going back for a second pair. Thank you, Spanx!

If you have thick calves these are not for you! They slide up and bunch around the knee and become uncomfortable. If you have any abdominal fat, these are not for you. They roll down and become uncomfortable. Literally these ruined my day! I ordered up one size, I am 5'4 150lbs bought a large. I am done with Spanx products! Expensive and uncomfortable.

I ended up purchasing these after an exhaustive search. Thank you Spanx. I am 5'6 and 143 lbs with substantial booty and thighs that are pushing 50...hard. The medium fit better than the large which, although less tight across the butt, was too big in the waist. These pants smoothed lumps and bumps but the best feature is the lack of a front seam. No graphic division of the lady-bits. They can be worn without undies. The waist is high enough that you are not always hiking up your pants or revealing top of the hip bloop. My only gripe is that the portion of the leg below the need tends to ride up.

Purchased these to wear for various workouts including kickboxing and boot camp class after having my second baby. Loved the fit and feel; however, the waistband rolled down with every bend. So frustrating! I wanted them to work so badly that I went ahead and wore them to a workout, hoping I could make them work, maybe even roll down the top of the waistband. Wrong! Zappos will not let me return them since they have been washed/worn so now I am stuck with an expensive pair of leggings I have no use for.

Very comfortable. Lightweight, but gives excellent compression (i.e., smooths out the lumps and bumps) without being bulky or heavy. My favorite to wear to work out.

These are the only leggings I will wear - and I've tried them all! I wear them for Pilates, barre, and running. They comfortably support me while exercising, though I often find myself wearing them the rest of the day. They are high waisted to nicely suck in my middle and also offer a nice overall compression while running. For reference, I am a size 8-10 in jeans, athletic build, medium frame, and I wear an XL in these leggings. I tried a large but felt uncomfortably constricted through the waist (and I think the reason why there's a few complaints about the top rolling down- I think they're just wearing them too small).

Apparently I am the only woman in America who does not wear Spanx on a regular basis, but my friend was raving about these capris for running, so I thought that I would give them a try. And guess what? I am so pleased with these compression capris by Spanx. I have several pairs of compression capris for running because I find that they hold my knees in place and therefore have less knee pain following a long run. The nice thing about the Spanx version is that they hold your tummy in place, too. These capris are comfortable, friendly on the knees and core during a run, and make me look more svelte in the process. What's not to love?! I also should mention that they are easier on and off than other compression capris. Thank you, Spanx. I was a little skeptical of your brand and the price point, but I am a firm believer now (pun intended).

Great, comfortable, slimming knee pant. I found it ran true to size. I ordered a medium and I usual wear a 6 or 8 in jeans. I broke my leg, and the bottom of these pants can stretch nicely to fit over a below the knee cast. I'm now in a boot and again these pants make up for the ugliness of a cast or boot.

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.

By the reviews I thought these were going to be a winner. After trying these on and doing a once look over I couldn't believe how odd shaped the seaming was on the crotch area. Not pretty and seamless. There are much better styles and brands for less. I will stick to what I know and love.

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 pants! They really are some of the more flattering workout pants I've worn (very smoothing, good support and compression, no center seam) and comfortable enough to make it through super-challenging kickboxing class or cardio circuit. I did not love them as running crops (no pockets and the waist did roll and migrate down a bit) but they're awesome for everything else, including everyday wear.

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!
