Finding the right women’s running tights isn’t always easy. But there are many options, and the best running apparel is what works for you.
When shopping for women’s running tights, keep these tips in mind:
- Think temperature. What’s the winter weather like where you live? Some types of women’s running tights are made of a moisture-wicking Lycra blend meant mostly for chilly fall days, while others have fleecy linings to protect against bitter cold when the temps are well below freezing.
- Think style. Look for the style features that appeal to you in different brands of running tights. If you prefer a less fitted silhouette, look for boot-cut legs and wider or asymmetrical waistbands. Need pockets? Some styles of tights have a pocket in the middle of the back or on one side to hold a key or packet of energy gel.
- Try them on. Every brand of running tights is sized a little differently, so the size of running tights that is right for you in one brand may be too big or too small in other brands. Visit your local Sun & Ski Sports store for a wide selection of women’s running tights that you can try on and compare.
