I have been looking for compression knickers for quite sometime. More so now, as I will be training through the summer for the NYC Marathon in the fall and I am not a huge fan of shorts. I will only wear CWX since I have not found anything that has the amount of compression CWX has. I have everything thing from the short, capri, tights to the insulated tights in CWX, but I am not crazy about the shorts and the capris are too hot. And they don't make a knicker. So I decided to give these a whirl. I initially tried on the medium in the store (which is my normal size) and they just weren't tight enough. They were out of stock in the small (in black) and they ordered them for me. When I received the small, I still did not think they were tight enough, so I ordered the xs. When I first opened the package I thought no way. Even after I tried them on, I did not think they had enough compression. But I decided to keep them anyway. Today I ran 6 miles in 75 degree weather and I could not be happier. They kept everything in place and I did not heat up at all. I am so impressed with these pants, that I think I need another pair!! These just maybe what gets me through training in the summer. If you are like me and like pants really tight and fitted I would suggest sizing down a size or two.
better than expected
I am 5'4 and 155 lbs. I am solid and compact. I haven't bought new capris in about 7 years because I take very good care of my gear. Went outside my comfort zone of "black workout gear" and bought the "maroon" capris. Got a lot of compliments on the tights. I LOVED the material! It was thicker than I expected, so it passed the "bend over test". The pic doesn't show it, but behind the knees and the curve on the lower sidesw are vents. Nice placement! The fit was good overall, but the front seam in the center seemed about 1/2" to 1" too short. I had to tug it to make it comfortable several times. Maybe just this pair, because I intend to buy this in another color.

I bought these at a store when I was picking up my bib for an event. The color (Mulberry Madness) was what caught my eye. I saw that they had my size so I tried them on. They fit like butter. Bought them without hesitation.
Not only is the material great quality, the color is beautiful and I've received so many compliments. I have used these not only for working out but also for yoga, cardio and weight lifting workouts, and for training. Looking forward to purchasing another one of these in a different color.
My stats: 5'3", 145lbs, size Medium fit true to size.

Oh my gosh! Absolutely perfect for heavy duty gym workouts! Comfortable and supportive no matter what I do in the gym - cardio, weights, core, HIIT. I workout 5 days a week and after a year of wearing these faithfully, I had to buy more. The original pair are in still in great shape but I've had to size down. (That's a good thing!) I own black and mulberry and have no problem whatsoever with "sweat rings" although I sweat a lot. No tugging, no pulling, full coverage, hidden and convenient back pockets hold my keys perfectly. Don't miss out on these!!
I'm really shocked that these knickers don't have more positive reviews. I used them for a 4 mile run today in 70ish weather. They were super comfortable and weren't overly hot. I have a lot of junk in the trunk and felt a little more movement in the back than in my vsx capris, but these are much lighter. I work out at the gym a lot and have a lot of muscle. The one downfall was the length, the 17" knicker fit me more like a Capri. I'm 5'3" and 175 lbs and the medium fit perfect, like compression pants.

Incredible and good quality
I love these!! Bought them because they received good reviews on the internet. I did go to the store to try them on. I'm 5'5" - about 125-130lbs, and all my weight is in my hips. These tights hold it in. They are so comfortable. They stay put - don't slip down or need adjustment when running. Also - I took a really big fall on the trail, skinned my knee (among other things) but the tights are still completely intact. Not one snag! I couldn't believe it.
However, if you are ordering online, these do run big. In Nike I wear a small or a medium. After trying them on, the best size for me was the XS. If you do go into the store - the service is incredible and they will make sure you have the best fit.
These are flattering, mildly compressive and so very comfortable. Unfortunately, you need to wear a skirt over them or some boy shorts underneath because they are super see through. What a bummer because they are great fir running in warm weather. I am so torn. They fit so well but are just not opaque enough and a larger size might not show so much....maybe? But these fit perfectly.
Excellent fit. Made for women with curves.
These are excellent running capris. I am 5'3" and 130lbs. The medium are a good fit. The fabric has give and compresses without being stifling. They are good to wear on all but the hottest of days. I usually have trouble finding capris that fit because everything is cut with such a low rise. I have lumps and bumps after having 4 kids and there is enough fabric to fit everything in and smooth everything out. These have quickly become my favorite running pants.

The Gray is not moisture wicking, huge sweat ring ¿
I love these in the dark colors, but I wore the charcoal grey on a 3 mile run @ 5:30 pm after it cooled off, and had a huge embarrassing sweat ring around my crotch. I noticed it when I got in my car. I would not recommend the lighter colors on hot days outside. I don't think they should market them as moisture wicking if they aren't.
Great color and fit!
Bought the Mulberry Madness color at a Road Runner store during a packet pick up. The color is beautiful and the fit is fantastic! Great quality fabric and perfect for running, weight lifting, and general gym workouts.
Buying this in the black next!
