I’ve never worn either. I plan on getting a high waisted-long legged shaper (waist to knee shaping). I’m about a street size 8/10, 5’4″ and 150lbs.
I especially want to hear from ladies who’ve worn both!
I can’t see if what I need comes in a nude color from rago, while it does in Spanx. That’s my main con right now.
Here’s a pic of the dress they will need to disappear under.

I hate Spanx, they always ride/roll up/down my body and are super uncomfortable. I bought a Rago waist cincher on Amazon after reading so many suggestions from Bees and I love it. I’m ordering a 2nd one for my wedding. Super comfortable and does what it’s supposed to.

Rago is amazing! I live the subtle boning in it so that it doesn’t roll down from under the bust. I also found it to be much more comfortable than spanx. I wore the high waisted leg shaper ones!

Obviously this is just one woman’s opinion, but from my experience:
easy to get on
comes in nude, black, and brown
Rolls down from the top and up from the bottom which makes them very uncomfortable
No split crotch for using the bathroom so they have to come all the way down and back up
Not very pretty
Not the best shaping (IMO)
Visible center seams
Boning keeps top from rolling down, grip on legs keeps them from rolling up
Split crotch for using the bathroom without taking on or off
Pretty design, detail
Comes in white, nude, black, brown
Lace can be a bit scratchy
More difficult to put on
As you can see, I think Rago totally trumps Spanx. 🙂
Also, not sure where you are looking or what style you need, but the Rago style I ordered from Amazon came in a nude color.
Hope this helps!

That dress looks beautiful on you!

I fail to see why you even need shapewear.

Does anyone know about Rago’s sizing? According to their size chart, their “small” is a 26-inch waist. Would it do any good for someone who’s smaller than that?

I bought my shapewear from Victoria’s Secret and it is really the best! I’ve had it for over 2 years now and worn it countless times. It still doesn’t ride up on me.
I have actually never heard of rago. Do they have a store where you can try it on? I tried on the VS one before I bought it and that helped me to see what it did for me and if it was worth the money (which it totally was). I also think VS is better priced than Spanx.

Ack, I had never heard of Rago, but just placed a $150 order on Amazon, lol. 🙂 The 6107 look to be exactly what I need, and I added a waist cincher for the heck of it.
