ROLL WITH IT BIRD HUG TIGHTS
"What if we could have tights without the waistband squeeze, and the ability to customize the rise?" That's the question the O design team asked, and these tights are the answer. First, they're in our beloved Bird Hug fabric, known for its unparalleled softness. But it's the waistband that's truly novel. With no elastic, and an extra high panel/rise that can be left high, or can be rolled down to any height desired. Though these might not be be your go-fast tights, the soft compression keeps it all in place for most of life's adventures, both indoor and out. Plus reversible! Two times the fun.
- bird hug reversible fabric (polyester / spandex)

I love the bird hug fabric, the bird hug bra is probably my favorite bra so I was really excited to buy these tights. However, these tights have a really hard time staying up on me and I need to pull it up quite frequently. I'm a size 4 in everything Oiselle and if I hadn't cut off the tags I would swap for a size 2 to see if it helps with the sagging.
The bird hug fabric is great. I have that material in 2 other tights that have a tighter waist. I bought the same size in this pair and they sag really bad. I can't keep the crotch up. It isn't the fabric because the other 2 tights are perfect. I don't know if I should have gotten a size smaller due to no elastic in the waist?
These are great for lounging around, as long as you don't have to walk around.

I love Oiselle clothes - particularly their tops and their shorts. Several years ago I stopped buying their tights because they wouldn't stay up/the crotch area sagged. BUT, I really liked the style of these and without trying them on in person, decided to take a gamble. I'M SO GLAD I DID.
I've put 75 miles on (in?) these pants prior to writing this review. I've run uphill and down, on trails and on roads. I've tucked my shirt in and left it untucked. I can confidently say that Oiselle pants are drastically improved from several years ago AND they're DREAMY. Wow. These are really wonderful functionally, and even better is how beautiful they are.
I don't usually take time out to write reviews BUT in case there are other women out there who stopped wearing Oiselle pants, I'm here to say - come back! Oiselle really nailed it with these - and I'm excited for my next pant purchase in the future!
