Compression Distance Run Tights
Distance Run Tights
These are excellent; really comfortable and supportive.
I've done two long distance runs in them (20 miles) and will wear them for the marathon next month.
They look good too! Would recommend.

look great while you sweat
Love these pants. The other day without thinking, I put a hair dryer to close to my favorite running pants. My mouth fell open as I watched my pants melt before my eyes. It was also a pair from Sweaty Betty in this same fabric with the best rainbow racing stripes on them from a year ago. SO SAD! I was happy that when these arrived that they were the same awesome fabric. These pants are comfortable along with sucking you in and smoothing everything out. No dimples showing or jiggling going on. The waist band smooths you out instead of cutting in and pushing flesh up and over. My only disappointment would be the color of the stripes. Not all girls want pink and purple stripes. What about green and yellow. I never see good greens on women's running clothes.

Squeezed to death!
Horrible compression tights that were way too tight. I've had a different 'running' brand that were fabulous. These just squeezed the life out of me!! Obviously they were returned.

Great fit apart from the length , but hey I'm only 4ft 10in. Nothing a pair of scissors can't rectify.
Very comfortable and easy to wear

Most likely the best running tights around
Love these, spending long Sunday mornings in them :) They provide a great aid to your muscles to endure the long marathon training runs! Love the style too. My thighs are very muscly, I am far from being thin, and my legs look pretty slender in them :)

Makes a noticable difference
Usually after running anything over 5K, my legs would ache for a day or two (long term condition), but now I find that I can for a short run the day after. The compression has also provided more support for my hip and knee joints, so I can run completely pain free :)

Great compression tight
I found these to be very comfortable.
I also bought another brand of compression running bottoms ( from a different supplier) , they were more like lycra capris and ripped the first time i wore them! So I was a bit sceptical whether these would be the same. But happy to report they are great. They are definitely more like tights in appearance than I am used too but I have found them to be excellent.

Great for long distance runs
I'm currently running long distances in marathon training and these were very comfortable - didn't ride up or chafe over 18 miles plus.

Comfortable warm compression tights
Bought these for the Reading Half warm and comfortable for the time of year and the distance. Washes well inside out.

The colour is back in my face again
My doctor recommended I get these for circulation. Afraid I've reached the Swollen Ankle stage of life. He's a marathon runner - said he couldn't be without them.
The second day I wore them - a friend said "I don't know what you've done, but you've taken 15 years off yourself.." My circulation is better - my skin is its old self again - my hair is shinier - posture is better - I am less tired so walking miles everywhere again...(and no more swollen ankles!)
"Don't get the prescription ones," he said. "You'll feel like an old lady". So I went to Sweaty Betty where they were great to me - and now I have two pairs - probably get a third. I love them!
