I’m a MOB. I think they’re torture devices. They’ve got to have been invented by the same person who designed the mammogram machine. I have one that can be pulled up to the bra – of course it rolls down pretty quick, and goes down to the knees. The area below where it stops pushes all the extra stuff down, so my knees looked huge. I’m glad I bought mine on sale – never wore them, except to try on dresses.

I have assets from target- mine goes yo to the bra and down to mid thighs and I love it, but can’t imagine wearing it over a wedding day. It’s out uncomfortable per say, but just….doesn’t feel awesome.

I wore Spanx shorts that went from the hip down to the knee. The line was called Thinstincts and they were pretty comfy. I prefer them over other brands because I found the material to be smoother and silkier

My wedding hasn’t come around yet, but I’ve worn my spanx a few times to get used to them [lots of ladies on the bee said they roll, I was worried about this]. I bought the higher power spanx which goes from just above the knees, to just below the bra. I’ve done lots of bending in them and they’ve yet to roll at all! I don’t think they are uncomfortable at all. I think some ladies may be wearing them too close or too tight, you should look at the measurements and order ones that will fit snug but not cut off circulation.

I’m not wearing Spanx… I’m wearing Rago!  SO much more comfortable than Spanx and easier to breathe in!  (Plus they don’t do the rolling thing.)

Rago Leg Shaper — Extra Firm Shaping

absolutely LOVE Spanx, first started wearing them when I go on job interviews, got and replacement pair for under the wedding dress.  I got the higher power spanx, above knee to under the bra.  I find it comfortable, truthfully, wedding dress after tailoring are so tight fitting, spanx makes zipping up a breeze and lifts the butt as well.  Help you shed off the last half inch.  Get it!
