Hanes Women's Shaping Capris
I have multiple brands of shapewear in my wardrobe, both high and low price points. This product gives the expensive stuff MAJOR competition. It has powerful compression without binding, stays in place, and keeps its shape after multiple wears. I have an hourglass figure and I need a little help to keep things smooth under slim fitting pants. Have worn a similar product that cost 3 times more and the performance is comparable. It's a great foundational garment!

I like the wieght of the fabric and the fit is not restrictive. I live in a cold snowy region and they work great as thermals to keep me warm and (bonus) make me look good at the same time

These run pretty true to size but they have a long waist which I can pull all the way up to my bra, although they won't stay there without creeping down. The true waistband is a little tight compared to the fabric just an inch below. I might cut it off.........
The feel of these is a soft almost cottony texture, not slippery or shiny nylon even though they are 89 nylon 11 Spandex/Lycra. They are a little like dark tights but not opaque. I would not wear with anything that shows past mid thigh, and use them most as a shaping layer under other pants.

Good product but can use some modification.
I have these in the nude color size Large. I have about 43 inch hips, weigh about 170lbs. They slim/smooth my hips, thighs and rear well. However they are too tight in the stomach area and can be uncomfortable (my waist is about 32inches). They don't stay put on the stomach area, they roll down (not that far but its uncomfortable).
Overall, this product does the main job for me in the bottom area. Hanes if you're reading this, please make the top 4 inches of these capris looser/softer than the rest. Thank you.
