Tight body hugging yet comfortable fit, ideal for running and working out in. They do stretch so pick your normal size, I'm size 8 and the fit is spot on, there is a draw string should you need it anyway. The material clings to your body as you move but never scrunches up or sags meaning you can have a trouble free session. There are reflective strips so this is also ideal to wear at night especially if you go cycling or for a run. I also like the ankle zips meaning if your legs are slightly bigger around your calf muscles then you can zip them down as far as possible.
Having previously owned running shorts that only went down to the knees i can tell you the extra material down to your ankles is most welcome particularly in winter. Do i have any advise for wearing these? Yes, Choose your underwear with care as the cotton briefs i was wearing initially created friction against the material the tights were made from, chose something minimalist and preferably made from microfibre.
As for these running/workout tights i give them the thumbs up, they are exceptionally well made and the price is right!
