SUPER SEAMLESS TIGHTS
New and notable and already creating a buzz with wear testers. These uniquely designed seamless tights have a few important differences: first, the special ultra-soft knit is also substantial, with a raised texture that make them body-hugging but less body-showing. The side panels have an inset rib, adding streamlined detail. The waistband is high and ribbed, but also flexible, so they relax as you wear them, without pinching or squeezing. They're the tights you'll forget you have on!

I absolutely LOVE these pants right when I put them on. The material is sturdy and supportive and the texture of the fabric gives them a nicer look than regular tights. Unfortunately after a little bit (or the first pull down/up to pee) they stretch and get saggy in the butt and crotch, making them look and fit weird. They're a win all around other than that.
I will admit, I was a bit skeptical of these tights. I read about the high waist and wondered if they would work for my short 5'4" body. I have a straight body waist to hips are basically the same, so I find the newer styles of pants and tights with the tight and tapered waist super restrictive, yet sizing-up doesn't really help. I have loved the flyte shorts for many years, so I was hoping these tights would be similar. They are!! The material is heavier, but the compression, stretch, and fit are very similar. The waist is high, but not too high and it is not restrictive at all. No muffin top! The legs are a good length and hit me right at the ankles. If you like the flyte shorts or are looking for a pre-2019 fitting tight, this is a good one to try! I am considering getting another pair!
I am a 4 or small in all other Oiselle items, so I ordered a small. These tights just feel...weird. The fabric is sort of soft, but the texture makes it feel itchy on my skin. Fabric is also quite thick so it doesn't seem to have much give as I'd like. These feel very tight in the crotch, and I feel like I really have to yank on them to not have the crotch down at my knees. I am a tall bird(5'10) with large feet and these hit above the ankles. The ankle opening does not have a lot of give, and I each time I put them on I have to be very carefully pull on the ankle opening in order to get my giant foot through(still popped a few stitches doing so), and once on, they cut into my upper ankles a bit(and my ankles are pretty thin). I do like the high rise. These might be nice under a skirt or with some flats and a tunic, but definitely don't seem to be cut out for running. I will still probably wear them occasionally, but overall am disappointed and they will never be my favorite. I'll keep relying on my Bird Hugs.
The name alone intrigued me with hope for a comfortable fit. These are the Goldilocks of tights if you're looking for: non-binding waist but stays up; hugging your ankles to give a sense of compression for running, or for rumbling, offers a stylish neatness with flats or with boots of any length without crumpling inside. The color is a true black with no shine or sheer, so it creates a more luxurious look which is what makes this pair of tights versatile across many wearings. The design is both functional and beautiful - and offers a slimming look without making me feel like I'm a sausage just about to explode on the grill. Come on, you all have seen that and know what it might feel like! Try these! I'm glad I did!
I wear 8 in most Oiselle tights, sometimes a 10. I bought a size M. I am 6'0". Love the fabrication and look of these but they did not fit me right. When I first tried them on I thought they would work, although a bit looser in the back of the waist than expected. I went for a 4 mile run and knew I'd have to give them to my shorter sister. The waist is not high on me, but solidly below my belly button and way too loose, making them slide down. Because of my inseam length, these are more like 3/4 tights and the leg opening needed to go up higher onto my lower calf, but the opening is too tight to be pulled up higher. As they slipped from the waist, the crotch also sagged due to the combination of the rise not being long enough and the legs being too short. Basically I could maybe wear them lounging but not for any activity. I was constantly struggling to pull the legs up to stop the crotch sagging down. I do love the super seamless fabric and the ribbing. Would buy a Tall Bird version!
I did not expect to love these tights as much as I do! I usually am not a big fan of a higher rise tight like these, but the top of the tight hits in just the right spot to be super-comfortable. I got them as an every-day bottom to wear while working from home, and they are perfect for all-day wear.
I am in love with these tights! They fit similarly in the waist to the Long Flyte Shorts- not binding, a tiny bit lower in the back then the front, but still high waisted. They do feel a little loose in the waist- and since they don't have a seam running front to back it feels a bit strange, but I have worn these all day and they have not slipped down at all. The compression in the thighs and calves help to keep them in place. They are very deep black- and have a cool design details knitted into the outseam and inseam panels. I haven't worn these for running yet, but they will be my new go to daily tights!
