After finding out about these groovy hipster tights, and reading the reviews, I was excited to get my first pair of FOHER Hipster tights and hope to rock them out at the UTA (I almost ordered 2, but glad I didn't). I couldn't love them as much as I'd liked to, and I've accepted that some products are not always for everyone. :( The waist band slides down under my small belly, whether I'm walking or running. So now, when I do wear them, I only stick to low intensity exercise. I followed the size guide and ordered an XL, it was good around my legs, but felt I needed to go smaller for more support around the waist. Instead of going down a size to L, thought I'd change to size M, because my other actice wear is size 12 or M (H:170cm and W:78kg), but again, it was good around my thighs, but the band would eventually slide down several times. I must say I love the print, material and it hugs my legs nicely, but unfortunately it isn't suited to my body shape.
Love wearing them So comfortable
I usually have issues with items that fit well around my thighs but are too big for my waist (or fit my waist but thighs say no!) These are *really* comfortable and a good length (mid thigh). I wear a size M and am 171cm/ 63kgs. Bought my first pair of these 6 months ago as I wanted a pair of shorts that didn't ride up as I ran and the band around the leg is designed to prevent this. I find that they ride up a little bit when I start out but as soon as you start a bit of a sweat on they are immovable (in the best way!) I have bought two extra pairs since and they are so handy. I use them for running and gym work. They're a bit of an investment but I would recommend - they're hard wearing and easy to wash (and dry super fast). Absolutely grab yourself (at least) a pair.
The best running pants I have ever bought!
Best cycling shorts EVER! Finally style for females!
Grab your tape measure, make sure it is held flat, not twisted and always make sure that it is held firmly, not cutting in or squashing the area you are measuring. Please take the measurements below and compare them to the size chart to find the size that is right for you.
Taking your measurements whilst naked will give you your exact measurements, but if you intend wearing a garment (like a sports bra under your trikit), then take your measurements with those garments on.
CHEST/BUST – Place tape measure around the fullest and widest part of your bust (usually the part with the nipples!) Be careful not to let the tape measure slip down at the back, or squash you.
WAIST – Place tape measure between the bottom of your ribs and the top of your hip bones (the easiest way to find your waist is to stand in front of front of a mirror and suck your tummy in hard - you should see it!). It's also usually the narrowest part of your natural waistline.
HIP – Place the measuring tape around the fullest, widest part, usually over your bottom or at the top of your thighs between your hips and thighs.
HEIGHT – In bare feet, stand against a wall and mark the point perpendicular to the top of your head. Measure up to this point from the floor.
These measurements do not include ease, which is the amount of extra space allowed in a garment for comfort and movement. The amount of ease added can greatly differ depending on the fit of the garment.
