Tights reviewBy: Chloe on 17 March 2019I am already a devotee of compression tights so I was happy to pay the price for the mcs version of the tights, already knowing the benefits that it gives me. I wear them almost always when running and really find it makes a difference to my soreness both on the run and how I feel afterwards. They seem to stop any ""giggling'' in the muscles which is why I like them for the run as well as for recovery. I really needed the tall sizing in this model but it doesn't exist, they just come a bit short on my ankles is all, the muscle mapping still seems to be in the correct places. I have found the compression in these tighter fitting and slightly less breathable in the muscle mapping areas than the regular model. Overall I can comment that they are more generous fitting in the thigh area than the calf.
