I was really excited about these, and I waited one helluva long time to receive them. That said, I doubt I'll ever wear them. It's that very very nylon, shiny, synthetic feeling material. Not my cup of tea. And not at all the product description. It will be hot. No compression whatsoever. So if you're looking for a material that will support you or hold you in, keep looking. I'll never get that feeling that it's holding you in. I ordered a size up as everyone suggested. I'm a US size 12 and it's too big. A shame to have waited so long and wasted $40+ ...and I'll just take it to the Salvos.
