4.5 stars: awesome, unique, comfortable

This is my first pair of compression tights. I agree with another reviewer that I did have to muscle myself into them the first time. After hand wash, hang dry and one run, I REALLY like them. They fit like tights/long TED socks/light girdle all in one! I am 5 ft 5.5 in tall and 123 lb, usually wear curvy fit. At my age (between AARP and Medicare), I appreciate the degree of compression - NOTHING sags. Waist and fanny are comfortable, and no tugging on crotch during run. They are already loosening just a bit (several runs) but I really like the support. Feels like I could leap a tall building. Legs long enough so there is extra fabric at ankles which I appreciate. They are thick enough to minimize panty lines, but will likely wear them as a base layer in the winter since they are not too warm. My only potential issues with the fit is 1) that there is no string in the waist. which without tucking something in, can feel the waistband move a little with each step (I have a thin waist) and 2) I would not want them any longer between waist and crotch. So short (and/or short-waisted) women would probably not care for the fit. They are snug enough on me that women more than a little bit overweight would likely not care for them either. I may order another pr- really a classy look and don't pick up dog hair-yeah.
