Genie Slim Jeggings Reviews
Early reviews of Genie Slim Jeggings focused on the ordering process, which many consumers felt was inordinately slow. Many customers have reported waiting over a month to receive the item.
As reviews from actual consumers have started to come in (see the comments below), the focus has shifted to the merits of the product itself. From dozens of reader comments found online, the following concerns have been raised:
- Color. Some have suggested that the colors displayed in the advertising did not accurately represent the product received in the mail.
- Odor. A few customers have reported that the jeggings had an unpleasant smell upon arrival.
- Durability. The material used to construct this product has been referred to as “cheaply made.” One customer said that they product ripped while putting it on.
- Sizing. Some consumers have reported that the sizing may not be accurate.
Although it appears that the product has a lukewarm reception, there have been some consumers who have reported a positive reaction to them, stating that they are comfortable and perform as advertised.
The company’s rating with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). TriStar Products, the parent company that markets Slim Jeggings, is not BBB accredited and has a rating of C- (on an A+ to F scale). This lower rating is due to the 916 consumer complaints filed against the company with the BBB over the last three years.
“Jeggings”, a trendy combination of jeans and leggings, seem to be quite popular right now. Lower priced alternatives may be readily available in local stores without having to pay P&H or wait for shipments, so as always, it may be wise to shop around. You may also be interested in a competing product known as “Jeaneez” which we have discussed in greater detail here.
Genie Slim Jeggings are spandex leggings that have an impression on them that looks like skinny jeans. They are also supposed to sculpt the lower body to make it appear slimmer. There are a number of concerns raised about this product, but satisfaction seems to run the gamut. Jeggings appear to be popular at this time, and interested shoppers may be able to find products comparable to Slim Jeggings locally for a more economical price tag.
