Cute legging. Holds me in nicely! I feel supported and some compression but its not uncomfortable or too tight. I order a small or medium, depending on brand. For electric Yoga, I ordered a medium and it was just right. I'm pretty happy with these.
This was my very first purchase of compression pants, I read many reviews & researched them & ultimately made my purchase with CompressionZ. They were rated very high & had many rave reviews. I do research items & truly appreciate actual consumer reviews so people please do leave reviews/ratings! I have medical & muscle relted issues so I knew compression pants were the way to go & boy was I right! I am so happy I made this purchase & went with a reliable, quality piece. In reading, I knew I had to go up a size for the proper fit in compression pants like these & for me it was indeed true. I normally were a small (I weigh aprox 125-130 lbs, about 5'7) but I ordered a Medium. I have just a tad extra in length at bottom by ankles but hardly noticeable, esp depending what kind of socks you wear. I started off with the full length leggings in black b/c I needed support in all those areas including my hips. Besides, black is always flattering ladies & color goes with almost anything! I have already made a second purchase from CompressionZ, now just waiting to make a 3rd, just as soon as these leggings are back in stock in the pink. Thought i might get a little brave/daring LOL. Ladies you can't go wrong with these, they are flattering, helps hides those little flaws we have, great support, comfortable, pass squat test, & anyone with any muscle conditions, or for just improved workouts, these are awesome. Company also sends a follow up email & provides excellent customer support. A rated in my book :)
These are great leggings/workout/ running tights. Excellent stretch, don't hold order, very smooth feeling, but not shiny or slick kind of feel a little like liquid on your legs with good compression to make you feel secure and like everything is in place, but not stiff or suffocating. If you're familiar with Old Navy running tights/leggings (which I hate) you'll love these in comparison and period. great for casual, gym or even to pair with something cute for going out. I wear mine all the time, literally :) and they aren't see-through!!!
Love these pants. I normally wear M/L so i got an XL. All my other running pants tend to slip down after a while and i wanted something that wont. This works good enough. While the compression in the legs isnt that tight (maybe if i got a L?) the waist band is, which is what helps it stay up guess. When i go on long runs, every part of me that is able to jiggle hurts after a while (I'm a girl, i have jiggly bits), but with these pants my lower half is good and doesnt ache. I used these for my first marathon and they really helped with aches and pains i think. There's on small zippered pocket in the back, which i stuffed with 3 energy gels for that marathon: which caused the waist to slip just a little while running, but once i removed one gel, it was fine and stayed put. If you're running in summer or warmer weather these can be hot, but for cooler temperatures its perfect.
SO dark. Zero see throughness
