Something that is very important for you to be happy with the training tights you buy is so clear that you will find the right size. The tights should not be too big as it can cause it to curl and not sit tight enough so that it slides down during the training session. If it is too small, however, it can lead to it tightening too much and being uncomfortable.

Here are some tips on how to find the right size the next time you buy tights.
Fabric and stretch
Our tights vary depending on the fabric used, and some have more compression than others which makes them want to tighten more. Tights with very stretchy fabric you may want to go down in size in, especially if you swing between two different sizes. This is because these tights will not tighten as "hard" around the waist, so you should make sure that they are small enough so that they fit well enough during high-intensity training. We encourage all our customers to attach an assessment of the size when they leave assessments of our products. That way, you can easily look at the product page about other customers who have purchased this garment before recommending going up or down in size.
