Soft but saggy - not for running

I bought these with so much hope to have them be my favorite running tights, but sadly I wish I could return them. They loosened so much after one or two wears that I can’t wear them for a run now without getting annoyed with how much they sag and ride down on a run. This is complicated by how high waist they are, which is comfy but ends up not being very functional on a long run. Good for lounging tho.

Favorite Atletic Gear

Five out of five stars. Women’s athletic gear designed by women. The most functional and comfortable ever. Thank you.

Soft and comfy but they loosen up!

I ordered a pair of these in my usual size (8), and they seemed to fit like a glove at first. They are SUPER soft and comfy on the skin. After a few wears, though, they are looser - especially in the waist - and have no compression at all. Knowing that the fabric would stretch out a little, I should have sized down to a 6. I'll still wear these around the house, but not for working out.

Too big

I love the fabric and the back big pocket. I wear a size 4 in the shorts but seems like I should have gone a size smaller in these pants .
