One of the upsides of cold winter weather is that I finally get to wear control-top tights under my leggings. I can’t be alone in this. Leggings are possibly the most perfect pants that exist, except for that one glaring issue: they provide almost no support.

It’s easy to just wear a long top and pretend the jiggle doesn’t exist, but this year I decided to upgrade my leggings situation instead. Spanx Ankle Length Ponte Hem Slit Leggings combine the convenience of spandex pants with the support of shapewear, except way more gentle. Right now, these game-changing leggings happen to be $51 off at QVC for a limited time. That’s almost half price!

Now, when you hear the name Spanx, the brand’s famous line of, shall we say, very constricting shapewear might spring to mind. But Spanx Ankle Length Ponte Hem Slit Leggings are not about all that. Though Spanx’s confidence-boosting shapewear technology is built into these pants, the leggings are designed for a more gentle kind of support.

The leggings have three brilliant layers that combine to “feel like a supportive hug,” according to a Spanx representative. The outer layer, which is made of brand’s patented Ponte fabric, camouflages lumps and bumps and is designed to lift and sculpt (but not smush) your rear end. Then there’s the Power Waistband, a panel that holds in jiggly bellies and love handles comfortably without any digging or pinching.

With no front seam, either, the Spanx Ankle Length Ponte Hem Slit Leggings offer such a clean, smooth and compressed silhouette that self-consciousness goes right out the window. And the comfort? You’ve got to wear these to believe that pants so slimming can feel so buttery soft and flexible.

When you find miracle leggings like these, you want to snap up more than one pair, just in case — and since they’re almost half price, why not? These Spanx wonders with incredible four-way stretch are usually $106 a pair. But the QVC price is just $55 a pair — that means you save $51 on each.

It’s essentially two for the price of one. You can even split up the cost into five EasyPay installments of $11 each.

So after you pick up those luxuriously practical Spanx Ankle Length Ponte Hem Slit Leggings in standard black, make space in the top drawer for one of these great colors too: Brandywine (deep eggplant), Heather (charcoal grey) and Nightfall (rich navy blue).

Spanx Ankle Length Ponte Hem Slit Leggings — which, by the way, get that name because of their cool ankle slit detail — are totally size-inclusive too. They run the gamut from XS to 3X and come in three lengths: 23 inches (petitie), 25 1/2 inches (regular) or 27 ½ inches (tall). Every body (literally) can make these pants their new best friends.

Wear them with sneakers. Slip them into boots. Throw an oversized sweater on top or drape a coatigan around them. Spanx Ankle Length Ponte Hem Slit Leggings are so versatile, you might even be tempted to dig your favorite pair heels out of their quarantine hiding place. Well, maybe!
