I bought this item to help me recover more quickly from running competition and hard training, having had a recommendation from another runner. My experience after nearly two months of use is that it seems to work very well, and my legs feel better the more frequently I wear the 2XU compression tights, and also the longer the period of use i.e. the benefit is not instant but improves steadily over time. The result is that after years of not being able do the type of training that I did when I was much younger, I can now contemplate getting back to a varied training pattern of intervals, tempo running and longer distances in the knowledge that I don't have to spend days unable to run because of stiffness and soreness. Just two days ago, I realised that I had not felt as good running as that for a few years, and that's very good news for runner well into supervet age. As for use, I put them on straight after competition as they are particularly effective if you have to drive any distance sitting cramped in a car (the same is true for the journey to the race). I also wear them for a few hours after any form of hard training. They withstand regular washing without any loss of quality, and after two months of frequent use seem as good as new. I decided on 2XU after the usual internet comparison checks and, although they are expensive, they seem well worth the money. When buying, pay careful attention to the size guide and when you put them on for the first time, expect them to be very tight!

Really nice fit, you immediately feel the difference between this compression base layer and a normal one. I bought the top and bottoms together but for cycling so can't really comment on the top as my legs are doing all the work however I am very pleased with both.

The compression really does help on recovery although I have not noticed any difference during my rides. There are plenty of good reviews on wiggle with more technical detail but if you simply want a good base layer that is technical and can be used to help recovery then this is the one for you.

I've been wanting to buy these for ages! Bit the bullet and they arrived quickly. Open the posh box and you can see where all your hard earned cash has gone - they look superb quality! They feel very comfy too, in fact better then I'd thought they'd be. I purchased Large only because of other buyers comments, the guide would suggest medium for me as I'm 5' 9" ft size 30/32 waist UK and about 30' leg length. But large is perfect. If anything they wouldn't want to be any shorter in length. Waist wise they are very comfy as they are not tight at all, they start very tight on the calves then progressively get loser up to the waist (As you'd expect). Something that has surprised me is they don't seem to keep my legs any warmer? - not as warm as 'normal' tights, they feel cold?! so id imagine you could comfortably wear them in the summer without over heating? They are described as a base layer so maybe that's why? (They don't look like a base layer). I have purchased cheap ones (More then half the price) on Amazon. The cheaper ones are no way as comfy and they seemed to fall down even though they were tighter on the waist?! 2XU look cool too!

Definitely a five star compression tights. Worth to pay every penny. Gives all the compression you need, very interesting and not ordinary design. They are not see-trough at all so you do not need to wear any shorts on top and they are super comfortable to do any fitness activity. I use them mostly for training in the gym, however I tested them while I went for a run couple times. Compression helps for faster recovery and you don't feel sore after a long run or a leg day in the gym.

I ordered a size Large as in all the compression and running tights that I have, but I do have to say that for me they were a bit to loose on the waist as I have big thighs and quite small waist so probably I could've spend more time chasing better sizes. Anyway those leggings have straps so you can adjust the waist but I do recommend to make sure you buy the your size because I am sure for the quality of those tights you want to have the right size.

At first I was a bit sceptical but absolutely love them! Cannot stop! literally! So comfortable and really help me recover from huge marathon type sessions. In which your muscle fibres get really worn. Top notch guys just bought some more!

2XU and compression... You cannot expect anything better than this. They know how to make the product and you can feel the design and the science behind it. It fits me really well and the level of compression is really good to give your muscles a good relief during and post-workout. Really happy to bought this product and I will buy it again, and again, and again....

Not very satisfied with this product. I planned on using them at the gym, but when doing movements like deadlifts, squats or rows they slide down at the back. They are very low waisted, so if they just move a little - you can end up seeing something u shouldnt. It's annoying you have to pull them up constantly throughout your workout. This happens even when the waistband is tightened. I took the right size according to the chart and the waist tightness is fine. Maybe you don't notice this if you're just running - but can't recommend them for weight training / crossfit like training.
The quality itself is good, but this problem gets really annoying.
