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 like how these feel on my legs, the compression is comfortable and they look good; however, they will only stay this way if you are standing upright the entire time you wear them. If you sit or bend down at all the waist will roll down uncomfortably and you will need to constantly readjust. This is ok if you are going to maintain one position but absolutely doesn't work if you try to do yoga in them as I did. I needed compression leggings for medical reasons and the joint stability was a big plus, so I am disappointed that an otherwise good product is ruined by the waist.
So I want to love these pants, but getting them on is too much a struggle. I felt as if I was wrestling on a rubber suit. Don't get me wrong, the compression is great and the look flattering; however, it should not take several attempts to put on a pair of leggings. I can't imagine how hard it would be to take them off after a long sweaty run. After finally wrestling them on, the top rolled down. These should be made as a high rise pant. Sizing up wont resolve the issue either as I feel a larger size would compromise the compression aspect. I totally understand now how rips and holes are made per customer reviews. So back they go and back to the drawing board.
CW-X makes the best supportive running tights. These are extremely comfortable, warm enough for cold weather runs and certainly help in muscle recovery. Glad to see something offered other than the plain black.
