Fantastic running tights,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: CW-X Women's Stabilyx Tights (Sports)
I love these tights. I've tried tights from Under Armour and Lululemon and these ones seem to provide the best compression. I like the support web that wraps around my thighs and supports my knees. I'm currently training for a half-marathon and I can definitely tell the difference in support when I wear these and when I don't. My legs don't feel as tired during the run, and I feel like they recover faster after the run when I wear these tights. I like that they are a higher rise as well, and I can feel the back and abdominal support. These are meant to be very compressive, and I found the size chart on the CW-X website to be accurate for my weight and build. I had read some reviews that suggested sizing up, but I'm glad that I didn't. They are a bit of a struggle to get on, as others have said. I find that it's easiest to get the knee circle lined up first, pull the tights up just past the knee and adjust as needed, and then pull them up the rest of the way. The only thing I don't really like about these tights is the ridiculously long drawstring at the waist. I ended up cutting it out as these tights fit me well enough that I didn't use it anyway. There is also a little pocket that I'm assuming would be for a key or a gym card or something, but these tights are so fitted that I think it would be uncomfortable to have something in the pocket while exercising. But those are minor annoyances...these tights are awesome.
