LUX GO ANYWHERE 3/4 TIGHTS
Heavyweight Lux. 3/4 length tights. Medium-high rise. And two giant pockets. That's really all you need to know about these instant classics. So if you liked the Lux Flow Tights, but wished they had pockets, we are at your command...
- Heavyweight Lux (polyester / spandex)
- interior drawcord
- 2 side pockets
- 23" inseam (size 4)
Bought the black in my regular Oiselle size - love the Lux fabric but the waist was unbearable tight. That seems to be a core complaint on many of the bottoms reviews this year :(
Bought the grounded/snap color in my regular size ( 6) and had no issues with the waistband. Love how soft they are and the pocket so i came back and bought the Mauve in the same size and the waist band was SO TIGHT! could barely get them on and no way would I want to wear them for any length of time. Super disappointed as I would have bought several colors.
I LOVE the fit and feel of these tights but was disappointed to find that after a couple months there was significant wear on the inner thighs where my legs rub together when I run. It's pilling and you can visibly tell that the fabric is thinning. This also happened to my other Oiselle tights made of Lux, but not my bird hug ones...won't be purchasing items in this fabric again.
I have the green from last year and they are my most comfortable leggings ever! On those I sized down from my usual legging size. When I bought the black this season I bought my normal size based on reviews and everyone was right - the waste band is tighter than last season so buy true to size or size up.
I'm usually a 10 or 12, and ordered the 12 but the waist itself is so tight! It's a little uncomfortable after wearing all day, which seems anti-Lux. But the rest of the legging is soooo soft and cozy.
I did order up from 8 to 10 on these. The elastic is noticeable, but for me not uncomfortable. I'm curious about how the 8 would fit, but I decided to play it safe and not have to ship back and forth. The colors are so nice, soft yet saturated. The side pockets are great, and since they do not have a zipper pocket at the back waist band they are also great for yoga/pilates/floor work.
Fit: I am 5'10", 150ish pounds. Muscly and curvy. All other tights I have from Oiselle are 8. I wear Roga's in 6 and 8.
I bought these on a whim at my local running store, mainly because they were so soft and I loved the beautiful green. They have become my favorite tights for everything -- running, gym workouts (the pockets!), and chasing after my kids. They are so comfortable with just the right amount of compression. I bought my usual Oiselle size 6: I am 5'10" and 145 lbs. I don't think of them as tights, but more as capris, which is perfect!
I wish these were comfortable. I heard about the waist and sized up from a 4 to a 6. It did not make a difference. The soft fabric was too stretchy and difficult
To put on. The waist is painfully uncomfortable and tight. It’s too bad I love lux and the purple color.
