To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I am 5'11" and about 170 lbs - between a medium and a large, with long legs and an "athletic" butt. I bought these in Medium Tall as I'm trying to lose some weight and I know 2XU's mediums usually fit me within a fairly large range of bodyweight fluctuations.
I have used them twice in two days - for a short run, and a weight lifting workout. They are easy to put on for compression tights. The compression is light/medium compared to their other products, but very good. Just the right amount to keep everything in place, help with blood circulation and feel secure, without making you feel like a sausage. Great for normal runs or working out.
They reach my ankles just at the top of the ankle bone (which doesn't happen often, as my preferred inseam length for tights is around 30"+ (34" to 36" for pants)). They are super comfortable, didn't move during my run, and didn't hamper me during my lifting session. The waist band is comfortable, I really, really appreciate the mid-rise, I hate when it's too high. I got the charcoal color, and they're squat-proof. Oh and while they're a bit lower in the back, thanks to my rounded butt, they cover more than enough and I didn't have to pull anything up.
I like them so much that I would buy another pair if the blue was available in Medium Tall. I hope next season's colors come out soon.
I looked at the size chart and ordered the appropriate size. When they were delivered, I thought I was going to be able to film a YouTube video of my failures getting them on. I was wrong and they fit perfect!!!
