I have been searching for new tights for months and finally pulled the trigger on these during the black Friday sale. After emailing back and forth with a product specialist, I felt confident in my sizing and that the tights would hold my phone. The fact that they are reversible is a total bonus (I got the black/gray combo). When the tights came, I fell in love at first feel. They are so soft! I tried them on the next morning and used them for a gym work out. They fit great. Totally as expected. High, wide waistband hit right at my belly button. I am a 6 in Lulu and was advised to go with a 6 in these. My phone fits in the back pocket great, and they are long enough (I'm 5'10").
Here is the reason that the bird hug tights do not get 5 stars:
They fall down. I was so fearful of this (it's pretty common for me, and with no drawstring, I worried it would be the case). So, for the first mile or a bit more of my run (I have worn them up to 10 miles), I have to hike them up several times. After I start to sweat, they stick pretty well. I'm not sure if others have experienced the same. In the end, I had to keep them, because they are truly the softest tights I've owned and for everyday wear, gym wear and maybe one run per week, I'm willing to put up with the falling down.
- Soft! Wide, flattering waist band. Reversible!
- They fall down.
Well I can see what all the fuss is about, I struggled to spend the money on these pants but based on reviews I thought it might be worth it. They are soooo comfy, I love the versatility of being able to turn them inside out. I also like the large pocket although I do hate that it's in the back, why leggings are made that way is beyond me. My only complaint was that I got these to stay warm during my outdoor winter exercise and they are no warmer than any other legging :(
- So soft!
- Not warm
Pet Hair Impervious
I definitely didn't need another pair of black tights to add to my already toppling pile, but when I read a review saying that dog hair just fell off of them I had to order a pair. When they came I rolled around on every dog hairy surface and the fur was really easy to brush off. The tights are also super soft, flattering, mildly compressive, reversible, and great for running, yoga and lounging. I will be ordering more pairs in the future!
- fit, softness, dog hair resistant
- don't love the exposed serged cuff, but they wouldn't be reversible otherwise

I couldn't believe how soft these were when I pulled them on...softest thing I've ever worn! Very comfy, opaque, and hit just above my ankle bones (I'm 5'11"). Sizing chart was perfect for me, I'm on the high end of medium and they fit great.
- Super soft!

Great, but too expensive to pill...
Love these leggings they are so soft, love to two-tone colors and I really wanted to get another pair (black/grey), but recently my current pair started to pill right in the butt. Which I do not know why?! I don't ever sit on a bike in them, I just have been wearing them running. Sadly, too expensive of a product to pill in my opinion.

Favorite O tight
I own a ton of Oiselle and they're products are getting better with each season. I love these tights. They are ridiculously soft (in a different way than Lux) and while they are great for lounging, I love that I can also run in them. There's a giant phone pocket in the back of the waistband and when full the pants don't slide down or bounce. Had them for over a month and have worn them on every long run and never have to adjust. They work on their own to about 30 degrees, but are easy to layer. TTS - perfect fit.

love at first sight
I LOVE these tights!! I haven't worn them for running yet, but I've worn them multiple times to bed, to work, for s night out, etc.! They are SO SOFT. I have both colors and i love that it's like I have four pairs of tights instead of two. The one thing I don't like is that the curfew/blaze ones have blue seams on the blaze side, which looks a little messy, so I probably wouldn't wear that side out. I got my normal size and they fit great!
- SOFT, fit great, flattering
- blue seams on blaze side

They are magic.
I visited the Oiselle store in Seattle while visiting for a sisters/niece vacation. My niece who is a runner and loves Oiselle. She purchased these leggings and loved them so much that we went back the next day and all purchased a pair. I do yoga and only wear work out clothes for working out. Not only were these pants perfect for yoga, I didn't want to take them off after class. If I had a pair for every day of the week I would never take them off-also they are reversible so it's kind of like 2 for the price of one. I don't love the blue/orange color so will just have to get more of the black/grey.
What makes them even better is that they seem to repel dog hair. I have 4 dogs and somehow they seem to stay virtually dog hair free....magic.
- the fit, the feel and that they don't collect dog hair
- Not enough color choices
Umm Yes Please
Wore these for the first time yesterday and I have never had smoething so soft on my skin before. I took them out for a run and they didnt move and like the description reads, they fit my iPhone in the back pocket with ease. Definitely buying the other color.
