Waistband fits just fine!
Got these just in time for turkey trotting, and I am in love. I'm 5'6, 150, and consistently an 8 in Oiselle. These fit perfectly, and seem to stay up better than my team knickers (but it could also help that they are new!). I stashed dog bags and my phone in the waistband. I have short legs for my height, and these hit just at the ankle bone. The fabric is on the thicker side, making them perfect for fall/winter running but maybe too warm for yoga!

Awesome tights especially when I have to schlep a bunch of stuff when I'm walking or running with my dog. On my first run wearing them, I was able to fit my phone, house key, credit card, mini bottle of hand sanitizer, foldable dog water bowl, dog treats, and poop bags (and definitely could have fit a few more things). I was surprised nothing fell out of the open pockets and I never had to pull the waistband up while running. Immediately came home and ordered two more pairs!! I'm usually a pretty solid 8 but the 6 fit much better, so I would say these run large.

Nice leggings, but run big
I measure at a 27" waist and 36.5" hip, which lands me right between 4 and 6 in the size chart. I noticed that reviews called these TTS or a little small in the waist, but I went with a 4 because I wanted these tights to feel compressive. Unfortunately the 4 feels loose in the waist and legs (and I have thicker legs). They're nice leggings, but I would not expect them to serve as compression tights unless you go a full size down. I'm keeping them because Oiselle doesn't offer free returns.

Pants for all things
These pants are my new favorite for all the things. Going for a run? Practicing yoga? Do a little indoor skydiving? or just hanging with my kids. You bet my butt is in these pants. I even wore them with a nicer style tunic sweater to a parent-teacher conference and got complements (cause I'm that mom that's always in running clothes).
The details: my phone (big Samsung), keys, and fuel stayed still in these pockets while running. The cut hits me just right above the ankle (I'm 5'11) and the usual size worked (size 10, i'm 155, big bottom and things going on here). The waist needs to be finessed over my bottom more gently than compared to other pairs, but once on, it's not too tights and doesn't shift down.

I absolutely love these! I have worn Lulu tights for years, but I just converted to Oiselle. They don't slip down while I run, or chafe at all. The material is soft and high quality. I'm 5'4" and 122lbs and the 4 fit perfectly.
Will definitely be buying another pair.

I bought these a couple days ago and I can't stop wearing them. I was a little wary to purchase these initially because of some of the reviews about the tightness of the waistband. But as someone who is constantly pulling up other leggings, these fit like a dream. They are so comfortable, stay in place without any discomfort, and the full wrap pockets are honestly more fun than I anticipated. I'm so stoked to have these in my closet for spring.
- Everything so far!

my Lululemon wonder unders got a hole in them. After that, i decided i was done with lulu. Ever since ive been searching for something similar, but nothing could quite replace the quality and type of fabric i was looking for. These, to my surprise, are the perfect replacement to my all time favorite leggings!

Soft and comfortable
I love the feel of these tights! They are so soft and fit great once they're on. The waistband is hard to get over my hips but once they're on there is no slipping, regardless of my workout. The length is great - I'm 5'7" and wear a 4 and they come to just above my ankle. I love the pockets!

These leggings are my go-to for running through the streets or through the grocery store. The above review is right, however, about the waistband being weirdly small. It fits like a dream once it's over my booty but it takes a little coaxing to get there.

I bought these tights because I needed some pockets for fuel for marathon training and these totally fit the bill. They don't ride up or down. Held my cell phone, 2 packs of gummies, toilet paper, and more! I thought they fit true to size...I wear a 4 in most Oiselle bottoms and got a 4 in these and they fit great.
- Would have liked at least 1 small zip pocket.

My go-to tights
The high-rise and 3/4 length is great! I use for jiu jitsu and running, they provide good compression and coverage in both sports! The pocket all around the waist band is a game changer. I'm usually a size 10-12 pants, a 10 fits perfect.
- compression, thickness, pockets
The concept of these is outstanding! My only problem is that the waist doesn't stretch nearly as much as their other tights. This could be because of the extra fabric/seams to make all of the pockets. I usually wear an 8 in all of their tights but should probably go up a size in these.
