SPANX® 'Skinny Britches' Shorts (Shaper)
I like the sheer and lightweight material. They are definitely smoothing and do the job. The tummy hasn't rolled down and the legs haven't rolled up so the fit is good, but a bit tighter at first than I anticipated. However, after a few wearings I'm very comfortable.
I purchased them to wear under my dresses and skirts and am very happy with the results.
Needed these for smoothing without too much compression, under my more fitted dresses. Found that they run small, I am a size 6, 5'7" and 130 pounds, and I got the large because I wanted to be able to breathe. I think by ordering up a size you can avoid the "rolling" that some have experienced.
This is my third purchase of of Spanx 'Skinny Britches'. They appear to be a little longer with better reinforcement than the design purchased two years ago. The seams are stronger as well. Being longer there is not the concern that a bulge will show where the britches end on the thigh. With the strong inside seam I feel they do not creep up on the leg as pants are pulled up over them. I am a size 2 so did not purchase these as a shaper and don't feel they are intended to give that much control. Skinny Britches do give a smooth line without the dreaded panty line. Spanx makes many other products that are meant to control. I am anxious to wear them a bit more to see if they hold up better and don't stretch out. They seem to be equally as slim fitting and thin with laser cut edge which is important for concealing the edge under garments. I wear Skinny Britches quite often so am pleased to see they have improved.
Love me some skinny britches!
These are perfect if you don't want a shaper that's too constricting. They can be layered, but I don't. They have just enough smoothing power for me, and are perfect under dresses or skirts, because they don't "cling." Love them and have them in every color!
