Check out the brand's tummy-controlling styles — from jumpsuits to bodysuits. All are on sale for up to 70% off during the site's end-of-season sale.

Oprah has great taste, from her thoughtful gifts to her flattering clothes. There's no wonder why we go wild for her Favorite Things list every year! One item that made the list a few years back but continues to be a favorite is Spanx's Perfect Pant, which Oprah called "ultra-flattering" — and right now, you can get them for 50% off during Spanx End of Season Sale.

They feel like leggings, but look like pants that are elevated enough to wear to the office.

Why is this a good deal? 💰

Spanx End of Season Sale is going on now through June 26 (the deals end at 11:59 p.m. EST) and you can score up to 70% tons of styles, from its top-selling shapewear to Oprah's favorite loungewear and workwear. The Perfect Pant rarely gets marked down, but during the sale, you can score the versatile charcoal color for half off. That saves you a whopping $74!

Why do I need these? 🤔

Oprah gave these smooth cotton ponte pants her badge of approval in 2019, writing that she was so impressed with the quality and flattering fit that she called the CEO of Spanx to personally thank her.

"When I first saw these ultraflattering pants, I immediately called Sara Blakely, the founder of Spanx, to applaud her," she raved. "In sizes XS to 3X, they have built-in tummy control, so you don’t need to wear compression gear underneath—you're already Spanxed!

The Perfect Pants have a pull-on design with a four-way stretch and have four functional pockets, but it's the slimming effect from the hidden core shaping technology that Oprah especially loves. Get them on sale in charcoal, or pay full price for the black, navy or red styles. You may love them so much you'll decide you need more than one pair.

What reviewers say 💬

Oprah is not the only one who is in awe of these comfy pants — they have a whole army of fans that gush about them.

Pros 👍

"The length is perfect and I feel really skinny!" shared one happy shopper. "The waist stays right where it's supposed to."

"Fits perfectly," reported another rave reviewer. "Really sucks everything in. These are my go-to work pants."

"I'm a size 16/18 with a mom pouch thanks to my three incredible children," shared another satisfied customer. "These pants are everything. I feel so held in and secure and do I dare say sexy? I want this in more colors. They're truly awesome and I love the pockets too. Must buy!"

Cons 👎

One downside shoppers mention is the price, which is why we freak out a little when they're on sale.

"Amazing amazing!! I wish they weren’t so expensive so I could buy all of the colors!" said one shopper. "They are so flattering and unbelievably comfortable."

"These are the best fitting and feeling I have ever purchased," added another. "I'd love to buy another pair but it's cost prohibited and color choice is limited."

There are a few variations of The Perfect Pant (wide leg, cropped flares, etc.), but this ankle-skimming, slim-leg style is versatile enough to wear season to season and year over year.
