I love these! They are great for running errands, doing yoga, or lounging around the house. I'm 5'6 103 and I have an xs. They fit me fine except in the crouch area. They are a little big there but nonetheless still really comfortable, so I don't mind the crotch area since I wear longer shirts with these. Length wise they stop a few inches above my ankle. My inseam is 31".

I don't want to wear any other pants again
I love these tights and I don't want to wear any other pants again! They are comfortable for walking or running (or doing pretty much anything). I don't think they are overly tight. They end a few inches above my ankle and I am about 5'3" / 105 and bought an xs.
Great pants but high-waisted
I echo the other positive reviews but I think people should know the pants are much heigher waisted than shown. I'd rather it be as shown. I have to fold the waist or it bothers me.
Comfortable but more fitted than other options
I really enjoy these tights but I felt the need to review because no one else seems to mention that these fit differently than some of the other Oiselle tights. In a lot of Oiselle styles, I wear an extra-small (I am 5'1 and about 108). In these, I tried the extra small and the small and didn't notice a big difference but went with the small. The waist cuts into my stomach so I wear them higher (right under the belly button) and they are VERY compressive. The compression isn't a bad thing but very different than the Joggings, for instance. In the Joggings, the waistband doesn't cut in at all, just sits flat, and I wear a size down. They also have a shiny sheen to them which I haven't seen mentioned. I will echo they're ankle length on short ladies which is a welcome change from the bunching at the ankles from normal tights.
They are however very warm and comfortable and I wear them regularly. Just wish the waist was more flattering on me, but maybe it's my body type.
I want to wear these pants errday for errthang.
I’m 5’5” and about 135 lbs, and these pants in medium are the best thing ever! I’ve always worn tights for the look instead of for comfort, and I’m usually grateful to be able to peel myself out of them at the end of the day and slip into something more comfortable. Not with these tights—so comfortable. I got one pair and, after a couple weeks of falling in love, returned for a second. They’re a perfect full-length tight on me. I wear them for running, hiking, pilates, lounging, and even going out with a long shirt to cover the athletic emblem and waistband. My only complaint is that there’s a little bit of pilling at the crotch. Still, if I could, I would buy 5 more pairs and have one for every day of the week! Oiselle, love it, and love this length for average-sized people like me.

Love these tights!
These tights are fantastic! Unlike most running tights they are made of a soft snuggly fabric that doesn't rub or chafe over long runs. (I bought the arm warmers in this fabric too I like it so much.) The pocket on the side as opposed to the middle is genius since it means my car key and/or gel don't get soaked with sweat in the winter. I'm on the shorter side (5'2" and about 115lbs) and I bought the small. I could do the XS for a more compression feel but I like them a bit looser. These actually end up as almost full length tights on me so with my full-size socks I'll be wearing them all winter. I had these in my sweats check bag after my last marathon and was SO happy to put them on. I actually wear them around on weekends too. They feel like sweats but look MUCH cuter. Thanks for these, Oiselle (and another color would be great!!)
I'm 5'4" and weigh around 120 lbs. I ordered the medium and the small - kept both. Both hit just above my ankle bone - so more "tight" length than "mid-calf". The only difference I notice in sizing is that the smalls are a bit more compressive. I've wore both running when the weather was cooler (30-40 degrees) - they stay put and I don't have to give them a second thought on my runs.
The inside of the fabric is just so soft! I expected it to pill up a bit after washing, but they've been through the laundry a number of times and remain as soft as ever. Definitely the comfiest running tight I own.

These pants are truly amazing. They fit perfectly and are flattering. They are also super comfy and have a soft light lining. I am 5'4 and 120lbs and I wear a size small. I would love to see these in other colors!!!
Can't stop. Won't stop.
I can't stop wearing these. They're incredibly flattering! They can easily be dressed up, or dressed down for lounging or running in. I'm asking for another pair of these for my birthday.
Best. Pants. Ever.
I have a pair of Lesley's that I love, but while the weather's still cooler these are PERFECT. They are quite possibly the most comfortable and best-fitting pants I own. I was a little worried about sizing, but they're less compressive than Lesley, and at 5'1" the XS are ankle length. Will definitely buy more!
