ROLL WITH IT BIRD HUG TIGHTS
"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.

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.
Sadly these are not the same for as my other bird hug leggings which are simply the best! The waistband in these will not stay up no matter what. If I walk around for just a few minute the crotch is sagging a good 3 inches lower than where it should be. Do I still wear them because I love the purple color? Yes. Do I complain about them every time I wear them? Also yes. I would wholeheartedly recommend the other bird hug legging style but sadly couldn’t recommend these.
I'm 5'5", 115 and a curvy athletic build and a size 2 or sometimes a 4 in Oiselle. The waist on these came almost to my sports bra and very loose. Even folded down the waist and hip area felt way too big. The folded waist also rolls back up. The fabric is lovely feeling, but probably the issue in these tights.
I really wanted these to work for me bc I am obsessed with my bird hug bra! Sadly, the convertible high waist band just did not work for my body shape. I have a pear shaped body and am 5'7", ~200 lbs, with a little post partum tummy. I normally wear a 12, but I sized down to a 10, and I honestly might have been able to go with an 8. The waistband did not feel secure enough for me to wear lounging or for running/yoga. I returned with the hopes the other waist band in the bird hug fabric will work... if they restock the black/green color I love. :)
Honestly. These redefine butter soft. I feel like I’m sending my legs to the spa when I put them on! They are insanely warm, but when I run in them, I’m not overheated. I was reluctant to by them for running as I didn’t think they would stay up, and thought they would just be comfortable loungewear, but now I realize I need a few more pairs because I love them equally for comfy days and for hard runs. I am usually a 6 in Lululemon, small in Nike, and am a 2 in these, so I would probably advise to size down.
I’ve worn my roll with it tights twice now and they definitely don’t stay put as well as the original version. I love the higher waist, but there isn’t enough compression to keep them held up.
I can wear them around the house, but I don’t think I could run a mile without them slipping down.
I bought these when I first became pregnant (in my normal size) and they have been the best throughout pregnancy. I’m currently 37 weeks and they are going strong. They cover up my stomach when my shorts fall, quite literally short, but aren’t tight on my stomach at all. Highly recommend for all pregnant ladies.
I love these pants so much. As someone who hates having extra pressure on my gut area these are my favorite go to pants. They are incredibly soft and I can roll over however much I feel like is comfortable on that day. I haven't had any issues with sagging but maybe that is because I have more gut/tummy bulge for them to hang onto, I don't know. I am going to buy in every color.
