The 2XU Women's Mid Rise Compression 7/8 Tights hits at that perfect hem position between full-length awkward sock gap and oddly-proportioned capri that lends a dash of sporty to any activity intensity. Not to focus solely on style, these tights feature compressive PWX fabric that provide wraparound support for your hardest working muscles to decrease muscle oscillation and help reduce fatigue and soreness. Compression also has been linked to improved circulation, which helps your quads, hamstrings, calves, and glutes flush out lactic acid recover more quickly than they would on their own.
You can certainly use these compression tights as post-workout recovery wear, and they're recommended as ideal attire for any type of running or fitness workout with a wide, comfortable waistband and breathable fabric. 2XU constructs these tights to maintain freedom of movement, which has been a criticism of some compression clothing, with the main body of the tights maintaining breathability to continuously wick moisture away from your skin as you sweat.

Ahhh glorious compression

These. Tights. Rock.
After a a long ride, run, hike,swim, or even if I'm just feeling a little tired and sore and laying on the couch, I love to put these guys on and let the compression material do its job. I wear these to work and also while exercising because who wouldn't want compression at any time of the day?? That being said, the continual struggle of saggy leggings is not a problem with these guys, they stay put whether I'm running for an hour or standing at my desk all day in the office. The thick waistband is really comfortable and while they ride pretty high ( about to right below my belly button) this helps the tights stay put and not slide down throughout the day/workout which is a major win in my book. It's amazing how much better my legs will feel after wearing these tights!
I'm super prone to have "dead/ flat legs" after traveling in a plane or car for a long period of time so I like to travel in these tights and then also wear them to bed the right before the race because it keeps my legs feel nice and fresh before hitting the course.
