I am definetely a woman who "needs some extra coverage!" Haha, but I just look at it as more to love! However, sometimes you just feel like compressing things a little. That's why these Women's RRS Velocity 6" Compression shorts are right up my alley! Whenever I wear them, things feel way more compact. And you should see the stares! For all those "large and in charge" women out there who occasionally feel the need to compress, I highly recommend these!
Comments about Womens R-Gear High-Speed Compression Knicker Capri Pants:
These are my first pair of compression pants, so I don't have anything to compare them to, but wow, what a difference the compression makes! I wore these for the first time last weekend for a 5K and I couldn't believe how fresh my legs felt the entire race! I set a PR and had very little soreness the next day, too. A note on the length: I am 5'3"/120# and these (size S) came to about mid-calf on me - more like the photo of the "Capri" length Velocity tights. This is what I wanted, so I am happy about that, just FYI for other short runners like me :) The overall fit was perfect, and they seem to be of high quality. I was neither too hot nor too cold in the ~60 degree sunny and breezy weather. I can't wait to buy more in other colors!
Feels true to size
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
