I was really happy to find these. The Spanx brand hi-waist is just too too expensive for me, but at the value price that the Assets brand comes at I can justify a great pair of slimming hose.
The leg good, not great, more of a day setting look than fancy evening. Very comfortable on the leg as well. So far, to me, no difference between these and the twice as pricey Spanx hi waist.
They are made for durability, the toe reinforcement is nice and subtle, care is taken in their fabrication. And yes, the slimming effect is good, oomphy. and va-voomy.
Unlike the Spanx though, these simply would not stay up. 1 hour into my day they had slid and were gathered visibly, uncomfortably and unnactractively above my waist.
Perhaps I am expecting too much, but they seem designed to sit well above the waist. They should stay there. My hunt for the high waist that works (and that I can afford) continues....
HerRoom Response: You shared that you are tall. I think the problem is that there is not enough leg in the pantyhose, so they are pulling down on the waist area and thus causing them to not stay up. YOu might want to try going up a size to get more leg length.
