Ok
These are a nice basic - I found that the top was in danger of rolling and looking odd underneath my dresses. Looks great when you're standing still, but while walking, sitting etc, you could see Spanx lines. I prefer the Super Higher Power style.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Nice
Fits a bit large, but very comfortable. Sexy cutouts in back. Overall pleased.

Yay :)
Thanks Spanx. Not as pretty as the other styles (i.e. Simplicity), but smoothes everything out nicely. Makes me feel much more confident wearing dresses. Tricky to find your size - I ordered 2 different sizes to be sure.

Perfect
Fantastic tank. Very soft and flattering. Only complaint is that it stretches out by the end of the day.

Will give a few more test runs...
Tried these with a jersey dress that doesn't allow a bra - they cover up nicely and are comfortable, however, they did show through the dress a bit. With a thicker material than jersey, I'm sure they would be perfect.

Neat little trick
Tried with a long, revealing dress and they really do stick well! Have to position them so that the fabric doesn't appear to be pulling against the line of tape, but I can definitely see these being a godsend while out and about - will keep in purse :)

The best
These Splendid tees are the best. I have them in black and white. I like the medium size for a relaxed, flattering fit. So comfortable and well made - have been through tons of washings with no shrinkage or fading. Recommend!

Love C/E, but not this style
Wanted to love these and didn't balk at the price tag because I thought they would be comfortable, attractive and perfect. I have a pair of C/E denim shorts that I love and look similar in style these, but it turns out the cut is very different. I found these to be too big in the waist, ballooning out oddly, and then too snug in the leg to achieve the relaxed boyfriend effect. Also, the wash looked borderline trashy/streaky. Returned.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Beautiful but not right for me
I wanted to love this dress. Read all the reviews and considered carefully before buying. It fits quite large. I sized down one size and it was still a bit roomy. The jersey fabric is soft and hangs nicely. I'm small chested so cutouts weren't a problem when standing still, but if you have a larger bust, you might find the coverage lacking.It's VERY long, but an unfinished hem, so not a problem to take up. Overall I felt too exposed and worried that in the course of every day movement my chest would pop out from the dress. Returned.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

My favourite
I bought these in the lighter denim wash. Fits a bit large- you may want to size down. The cut is very flattering but you may have to get them taken up - I'm 5'10" and the hem drags on the floor even with 3" heels. The high waist is amazing - comfortable and slimming. Strongly recommend!
