Wear testers say they feel like a thick, warm glove for your legs. Made from our Flyout Compression fabric, these tights are both soft, stretchy, and compressive. Two large side pockets make these tights ideal for any kind of outdoor adventure. The leg opening includes a detailed, tulip cut, and are designed to stop just above the ankle.
I really wanted to love these tights. The color is gorgeous and I love the pockets. Unfortunately they were way too big on me. I ordered the smallest size which was 02. I am 5-1" and 96 pounds. I could have accepted the bagginess but the material felt stiff and I felt like the seams would irritate me. I was so bummed as I read some great reviews. I had to return these and will keep looking for the perfect tights.
I bought these and the first few runs I loved how warm they kept me, super comfy and the size was perfect. I ordered size 2, I am 4'11" and 95 lbs. I loved the pocket for my phone! I, too, had issues with having to pull them up after every 10 minutes.....however, I realized they have an interior drawstring!!! Gamechanger! After cinching them up a bit I did not have to pull them up at all! I will faithfully buy all my running gear from oiselle....mic drop :)
A good friend of mine has these from several years ago. I borrowed them, fell in love with them, and bought them a size smaller because I like a little more compression than she does. We are the same height, same size, share clothes often.
The pair I received was significantly shorter than her pair, a loose waist (despite being a size smaller), very stretchy but no compression, and absolutely will not stay up. I tie the string, take 5 steps, the crotch is down between my thighs. When I pull them up, I can audibly hear the seams ripping. I will be surprised if they last the season.
These are the cheapest feeling tights I own, and I have had some poorly made ones. They are too stretchy, so they sag and need to be washed very often to retain shape. I tried running with a tiny bag of small dog training treats in one pocket, and that side of the legging was heavily pulled down. Forget putting a phone in there.
They are more expensive than they used to be, thinner, and terribly made. I really wish that when I had received them and noticed how different they are, I had returned them. I was hopeful that a wear and a wash would make them feel like the tight from the past. I haven't heard seams rip like this in years. Very disappointing.
I'm 6', 165lbs, curvy hips, smaller waist, mountain running thighs and butt. Ordered a size 8, my normal pant size.
This was my first pair of Oiselle tights. I'm 5'3" with a 27" waist and 36" hips and although the size chart put me at a 4/6 I normally get a 2 in Oiselle shorts and so I did the same with these. I'm thicker in the waist with slender legs, so the fit is actually perfect for me. Waist fits just right and the seams in the leg don't dig into me. I love the material - super soft, keeps you warm, doesn't get stinky after a sweaty workout. And of course, the pockets are great. Keeps my phone secure while running. Definitely recommend buying these, but keep in mind the sizing/fit as other reviewers have mentioned.
