So it's good to know that the brand you get is Empetua which is a subbrand of Shapermint. You're not getting scammed as it's a subbrand on their website.As someone with chronic health conditions including hypermobility and pain, compression products are very helpful. I'm 6' and 300lb and ordered the 4XL. And my autism oversensitivity combined with fibro makes sensory issues difficult with fabric textures.These are very well made. The fabric weave is thick and opaque, no worry of sheerness or anything being visible through the fabric. I was impressed that it fit, even my long legs and torso. And they weren't as much of a struggle to get into as I thought. The compression is medium at this size which is nice. The extra tummy support area is actually really helpful with helping my spine feel supported (arthritis and degenerative disc disease) and it's got a nice little silicone grippy bit at the top of the waistband. So far, no roll-down issues even when sitting.My only complaint, which is a personal thing, but is why it's getting 4 instead of 5 stars... is the fabric is rather rough. I was really hoping that the texture would have a softer feel as it covers so much of my body. I will keep these and hope the fabric softens after a few washes. Even if it doesn't, the trade of solid compression and support might be enough of a trade-off with the pain and discomfort from my fibro/touch sensitivity. Maybe I'll have to double up with my LuLaRoe leggings, which are butter soft, underneath.If a brand combined this level of compression, fit, quality, and support with the butter-soft feel of LuLaRoe fabric... they'd have a customer for life.
