Basic Bird 7/8 Tights
Streamlined. Minimal seams. The new Basic Bird Collection is all about building a solid running wardrobe you can always count on. Our Basic Bird Tights fit much like the Lux Life Tights (high-rise, wide-fit waistband with a 2-in-1 pocket) but in a high compression fabric (made of 82% recycled polyester and 18% spandex).

Reading some other reviews I was afraid these tights weren't going to be compressive enough. I typically run 70 miles a week and durability is a top concern. However, these tights are absolutely my new favorites! They are compressive but incredibly soft and comfortable. They don't slide down in even my hardest workouts. Bonus is that they are so comfortable and simple I can where them out and about when I'm not running as well. Now approaching 20 weeks pregnant these are THE BEST. The waistband has effortlessly handled my new bump... still no sliding down.
I think this may be my first "unhappy" review with Oiselle and it pains me to write it but for the cost of these tights, I am frustrated. Like a lot of other reviews, these have very little compression at all but I was okay with that. The frustrating part is the placement of the price tag with the little plastic "string" that you normally just cut off. The end of the plastic piece was sewn into the seam and it is impossible to get to it. Wearing it you constantly feel the jab of a little plastic piece in my hip. I am going to get some tweezers to try and dig it out but I do fear ruining the seam/fabric. Just disappointing.
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.
Five out of five stars. Women’s athletic gear designed by women. The most functional and comfortable ever. Thank you.
