BIRD HUG REVERSIBLE 3/4 TIGHTS
Every now and then a new fabric comes along to change the game. In Fall 2018, we introduced Bird Hug and all those who share our love for exceptionally soft (but also strong) fabrics agreed that this fabric upped the ante. In part because of its dual-knit goodness, making both sides of the knit equally soft. Enter the Bird Hug Reversible 3/4 Tights, with a slightly shorter inseam, but in the exact same, ultra soft and wonderful compression fabric.
- Bird Hug Fabric (polyester / spandex)
- large rear waist pocket fits an iPhone
- 23.5" inseam (size 4)
I bought these tights in a size 4. My shorts from Oiselle are a size 4 and fit really well. The shorts are looser in the waist band and fit a bit tight on my butt and hips (toolbelt rogas). These tights fit super well on my legs and are a little tight on my waist as others have said (for reference I'm 5'3 and 125lbs). I like the material and the length. I like the tights much more than the bird hug bra and overall am pretty happy with them. They have worked well for cooler runs as well as just hanging out at home. I just wish the waist band was just a little looser.
This waistband cuts in uncomfortably. I'm 5'2" and 123 lbs and wear size 4 pants. I bought the size 4 bird hug tight and everything about them fits like a dream, except the waist. I have a smaller waist and most things actually gap at the waist for me. I purchased a size four "Triple Threat" tight from Oiselle a while back and the waist on those is a shave loose, but SUPER comfy. I had hoped for a similar fit in the waist from the bird hug. I'm bummed to return these because the fabric and fit everywhere else is so amazing.
I love bird hug tights and own them in 4 prints. I ordered the new Empire/Lark in my regular size, but they are significantly smaller at the waist band than past years. They are cutting in to the point that I will be returning them.
The Bird Hug Tights are by far the softest tights I have ever worn! They are also super warm - I rarely notice how warm my legs are when running but I do when I wear these - perfect for cool weather running! They are also great in the gym on the treadmill - the fabric is smooth and does not get heavy with sweat. Perfect for all settings I never want to take these off!
Seriously the softest performance fabric I've ever worn! Great for lounging or yoga. I haven't tried running in them yet because there isn't a drawstring in the waist. For me the tights are almost full-length and flare out a bit at the hem, but I'm willing to overlook this because they're so comfy.
