Well I’m like 20 sizes bigger than you but I LOVE spanx. Actually, I wear them on a daily basis and they make me look much smaller.

I totally felt the same way. I am a size ten, and I felt like the bodysuit shaper made my belly seem rounder! However, I got their slip, and paired that with a seamless slimming panty and that worked out well.

I felt the same way! I’m a size 12 and I felt like it gave me a tummy pooch.  I have big boobs, a big butt, and big legs, but my waist is pretty small.  I felt like the spanx made my waist look larger than it really is!

I agree.  I am a size 10 and I felt it made my tummy look perfectly round.  lol  Not wearing it for my wedding.

OP- I’m the same size as you (well, a 0-4, but usually a 2) and I’ve noticed the same thing with that product (I have a similar style from their cheaper Assets line).  

Their Slim Cognito line has more compression.  I would recommend what iheartnerdyboys is suggesting (slip + panty combo).

It helped a little bit, but it seemed to move all the fat in my hips forward (though it could have been a combo of bad lighting and the ruching on my dress).

I think they can make your body look amazingly shapely, but you have to wear the correct size. If they are too tight, they seem to create bumps where there didn’t used to be any. I like the higher power footless stockings, as they can be adjusted farther up the leg,and  go up under the edge of your bra so they don’t roll, and everything stays smooth. I wore them under my gowns and loved them.

Yes! It made me look like a sausage rather than more spread out ( if that makes sense). I hate, hate, hate them. It also flattened out my rear end, and WHO THE HECK wants that.

I love mine…but I only like the high waist kind. It comes all the way up to my bust. The other one rolled down. I also thought Spanx was thinner than some of the off brand. The off brand added more bulk. I’m a 12-14 and pear shaped. I need help for both mid section and thighs and butt!!! UGH.
