"What if we could have tights without the waistband squeeze, and the ability to customize the rise?" That's the question the O design team asked, and these tights are the answer. First, they're in our beloved Bird Hug fabric, known for its unparalleled softness. But it's the waistband that's truly novel. With no elastic, and an extra high panel/rise that can be left high, or can be rolled down to any height desired. Though these might not be be your go-fast tights, the soft compression keeps it all in place for most of life's adventures, both indoor and out. Plus reversible! Two times the fun.

- bird hug reversible fabric (polyester / spandex)
- high waist with roll over waistband
- reversible design
- 25.5" inseam

Great for maternity!

I could not agree more with everyone who recommended these as maternity leggings. Legs are tight enough to hold them up so the waist band just lays flat across my belly. Seems like there will be space to grow. I like these more than the beyond yoga maternity leggings. Better fit and material. I’m 25 weeks pregnant now, normally size 6, got these in an 8 and they’re perfect.

Oiselle should just market these as maternity tights!

Reviewers don't lie - these are FANTASTIC for pregnancy. I'm 34 weeks along and living in these. They're incredibly soft and not so tight that they're painful/make you feel like you're being squeezed to death. The high waist portion lets you choose whether you want the tights below your bump or well covering it (so you can avoid buying overpriced maternity shirts), or something in between. Kicking myself for only buying one pair when my size was in stock!

They are so so soft and comfortable. I LOVE the no elastic/fold-over waist. Great for when you ate a lot of yummy food. Also wonderful for pregnancy. I can tell I'm going to be wearing these throughout the next several months as the baby grows. I hope that you guys release more colors!! The lemon print/yellow combo would be so fresh for summer!

Me again, still raving...

Just thought I’d review my SECOND pair of roll with it bird hug tights. Ran a grueling 25k trail race yesterday and they stayed perfectly put even while scrambling up and over some serious cliffs. Just bought a third pair... ready for new colors/patterns!

Fantastic maternity tights

I had been struggling to find comfortable maternity tights as a lot of the maternity-specific tights I find to be itchy and sometimes too tight on the belly and then uncomfortable in the crotch area, too. Anyway, I read a couple reviews by other pregnant women (thank you for your posts!) about these, and decided to give them a try. I'm so, so, so glad I did. I normally (pre-pregnancy) wear a 4 in Roga shorts and a 6 in Oiselle tights (5'4", 125lbs, typical "runner body type" pre-pregnancy). I went with the 6 in these and they fit me even at my current 150+ pounds. The material is very stretchy but still light and not too thick, so it doesn't feel annoying on my stomach. I can wear it up over my stomach or rolled down and it's equally comfortable. The crotch is fine, have been wearing them and haven't had any problems with sagging. They're a touch long/loose at the ankles since I'm on the short side, but because they're reversible I can just fold them up and it looks fine. I'm not sure I can wear any other pants during my pregnancy now! And I can tell they will be good for post-partum as well.

Pregnant ladies!!

So glad I found these but wish I had sooner! I am now 28 weeks pregnant and I’ve been on the search for comfortable no waist pinch leggings - and these are it! I’m not a fan of the over belly only maternity tights, so these with the folded waist band are perfect. Super soft. Comfy for both every day wear and they stay up running, with minimal adjustments. I received my first pair and after wearing them 1 day and running once, I went on and got a second color ASAP. I am 5’9” and 150 lbs (mostly belly; I was 135 before pregnancy with straight/Lean body type and small thighs) and size 6 is great. Only wish: that these would be made in a winter weight!! I run in Michigan winters and fleece lined would be amazing!!

Comfy waist

These are amazingly comfortable! I highly recommend these to anyone who deals with pelvic or abdominal pain. I have endometriosis, and as a result, my pelvis and abdomen is sometimes very painfully swollen, and it hurts to have anything on my waist at all. Regular waist bands make the pain worse. The waist on these tights is absolutely perfect. It’s so nice to find leggings that accommodate this chronic condition. I’m 5’5”, 120 lbs, a size 4 fits very nicely. I don’t have any issues with the tights sliding, as other reviewers have mentioned.

I may never take them off

I’ve loved oiselle for a long time, but the tights never worked for me. I’m an athletic hourglass, 5’5” and I normally wear a 4 in the roga shorts. For whatever reason I’ve always had an aversion to compression around my waist, so oiselle tights generally don’t work. But these are amazing. They are buttery soft and the roll down feature gives me control over how I want them to sit on my waist. I got them yesterday,, wore them all day and took them for an easy 3 mile run. They worked equally well for lounging and running (I’m no speedster though, so a fast flyer might have more trouble keeping them up. For me they were perfect. A little chilly but it was 25 degrees and I don’t think any of my other tights would have been any better). I’ll be back for another pair shortly.
