  • Perfect fit!

    These leggings are very comfortable and flexible. It shapes your stomach and hips masterfully. They are soft to touch and are made with a good quality fabric that absorbs moisture. I love the design because it is sleek and versatile. I can wear these to Pilates classes or dress them up with a nice cardigan. I like them the most because it is a lightweight tight that really helps enhance your curves. All in all, this is a must-have item!

  • Nice tights for daily casual wear

    chelseapdx - 13 Apr 2024

    I love having a simple pair of black tights, but these are even better that they are seamless and have really functional pockets. These tights fit like true 7/8 length on me. The legs of the tights even seem to contour to the calves as visible when not wearing them. The material feels unique for tights in that they feel a little thick (but not lined) which gives them a higher quality feel. I also really love that they are seamless. In general, I love the fit, material, and construction of these tights, and will wear them regularly, year-round. They look good just as casual-wear. So far, I have only been wearing them casually and not to run in. My only critique is that they seem like they might not stay up when running. Wearing them casually, I have found myself pulling them up occasionally, hence 4 stars instead of 5. I think the waistband could be a little tighter on me to avoid sagging as they seem to stretch out a little after wearing.

  • Next Level Tights/Compression Pants

    Nike DriFit Universa 7/8 Tight - 13 Apr 2024

    My first initial impression of this piece was that it looked so thin and tight and I had my doubts that it would fit. However upon trying it on, It proved me wrong! The sizing and the fitting of this piece felt extremely comfortable and the waist band wrapped around my waist just right. It didn’t feel tight to the point that it was compressing my waist or any parts or me lower body! What I loved most about the fabric was that it has a smooth feel to it which felt nice on the skin and it doesn’t cause any irritation to your skin. The fabric itself is also very stretchy so I didn’t have to worry too much on the piece being too tight on me. The feel of the piece also feels different compared to other tights/compression pants. This piece feels as though it is double layered but yet it is still so light and airy prevent excessive sweating when working out! However, due to my own excessive sweating during working out, i felt my legs a bit compressed and hot. Therefore it would be nice to have a bit more ventilation towards the bottom of the tights. However, because it feels thicker than most tights, it would be perfect for the colder weather as it will also prevent your lower body from feeling too cold! The design itself isn’t anything out of the ordinary. Upon looking at it at first sight, the design looks like any regular high waist leggings, however, it is the functionality of the tights which outshines the others because of how much better this piece outperforms them. Overall,I love how comfortable it is due to the elastic and stretch the tights prevents for me and how the waist band around my waist perfectly almost as if it wasn’t there! Additionally, I love the fabric these tights were made of. The fabric material of the legging feels extremely smooth to the touch and on the skin which is perfect when I use it for gym or for any daily tasks! I would 100% recommend these to friends and family! My overall rating would be a 10/10!
