Spanx questions

OK...I keep hearing about Spanx. And I am actually thinking about buying a pair (or 2 if I really like them). SO all you confirmed Spanx wearers out there...what do you recommend as I set out on this venture? Do you like and wear yours? Do they do the tournequet roll up that despicable panty girdles of my younger years used to do? Do you have a favorite style (high waist, vs regular..and what leg length)...AND do they make you look great while you continue to feel great. Does the "wicking" work? Thanx!

One more question

Are the sizes true?

Funny - I'm wearing mine right now! Hmmm...I don't know if I can answer all your questions, but here goes...

They stay put and don't roll up if I wear clothes that sit on or just below the waist. They definitely roll when I wear my jeans that sit on the hip and that's annoying to me. They feel great and they're much more comfortable than anything I had bought years and years ago. I only have only style - I wish I knew the name, but they come mid thigh, and they're probably regular waist.

I'm thin and wore them under my wedding dress. They were the most uncomfortable thing so I can't imagine that if someone larger tried to wear them they'd be comfortable. I'm a size 2, I wore them because my dress was so fitted. While they don't roll down, they are hideously ugly and again, uncomfortable.

I LOVE mine!!! I am also a size 2, and I don't have any issues with them being uncomfortable or rolling up. Maybe the 4:17 poster's weren't fitted right. I have the higher rise and the mid rise, you should really make the decision based on what you want to wear with them. They do work, but do keep in mind that they're just clothes, not a miracle. When I wore mine I did get asked if I had been working out.
