I cannot say enough about this shape wear. I have been buying Spanx brand for years and although it always delivered on function, comfortable it was NOT. I bought these with a healthy dose of skepticism, believing it was likely going to be a disappointment and all a bunch of hype. I could not have been more wrong. It is buttery soft, outrageously comfortable AND it does what it says - smooths, flattens, lifts - all in the right spots. I am a believer - Kim Kardashian has delivered a product that is impeccable and affordable...hype or not, it is shape wear perfection.
