Too small

I was excited to see these on sale, as I've had my eye on them for skiing but the regular price was a bit steep. They came very quickly and I immediately tried them on in my kitchen before I even got my jacket off!! I was SHOCKED at how small they were. I'm 5'1" 95lbs and I wear size 00P or 25 pants and the XS was FAR too tight. I knew that they were supposed to be snug but I couldn't wear these for more than a few minutes. Had to return them :( I'm bummed Backcountry doesn't have any size smalls right now.

My advice, order a size up.

Responded on

I am surprised you think they are too tight. I am 5'5" and 135 pounds and I wear the size small. I love them. They are a compression tight so they are suppose to squeeze. They also take quite a bit of effort to put on and that is normal. The benefits of the tight only come when they are...well...tight. Did you try to exercise in them. Personally I would not wear them for anything that you have to bend a lot at the waist. But I am looking at buying another pair I love them so much. Although I have the stabylx tights.
