The picture of these makes them look longer than they actually are when they are on your body. They run a half size larger. Maybe if they fit me better they would be more supportive. I like the material, the quality, and the color. If I order more of these, I will order a smaller size.

TMI disclaimer: I bought these to wear under skirts for two reasons. To reduce the jiggle in the fanny region, and the keep my generous thighs from rubbing in the summer heat.. It does the first job marvelously and the waistband is very comfortable. However, they fail at job number two. The legs roll up and lodge above my thighs. The roll of fabric is visible on the outside of the skirt, and my poor inner thighs rubbed raw after a long day of walking. I think they'd be perfect if they were about two or three inches longer.
These are very soft, stretchy and comfortable undershorts. If you're looking for light control under clothing, they're fine but if you're expecting the holding power of a Spanx, then you'll be disappointed. I've worn them under skirts and dresses and found that the legs constantly ride up. I have to tug them down every time I get a chance only to have them ride up again once I start walking. I haven't tried them with pants so I can't vouch for their performance in that situation. I have a yummie tummie tank and that really holds in my mid section but these shorts don't have that same functionality. I'm keeping them bc of the price but I'm not overly satisfied with this purchase.
