The company is located in LA, and they shipped very fast so I already received them! I ordered both the black ones and gray ones. The black ones I got in size XS because they were out of size S, which was the one I would have got. And I got the gray ones in size S. However, after trying them on, I actually like the XS better! It's a tighter fit but it's not like the waistband digs in or anything like that and it just holds you in place better. The size S also works though, and they are definitely not loose except a little bit in the waist area. I do not see any riding down issues though, so I think it's really personal preference. They are sold out of size XS in gray, so I can't exchange.
I got both colors because I couldn't decide which color I liked better. I was planning on returning one pair. But now that I have both, I want to keep both! They are $98 a pair so they are quite pricey. But if you sign up with Splits59, they send you a 10% off code which makes it a little better. Oh, or you can use "SPRING13" and it gives you 10% off too, as I just found out today! I really love the metallic stripes on these tights. They are actually silver metallic with black or gray mesh over them. They just make the tights look so cool! They are made of the same material as the Ginger tight, which is 90% Supplex, 10% lycra. I love how it feels on. There is one hidden pocket in the waistband of these tights, but no other pockets. It's not very big, but enough for some cash, key and maybe a credit card.
The black ones have a white stripe down the back and the gray ones have a yellow-greenish colored stripe which is called "yucca". It's actually very similar to the current Lululemon faded zap color. I'm quite happy about that because I can wear my faded zap Flow and Go tank with it for a perfect match! And I also just ordered the faded zap Free To Be bra as well. Yellow tanks also work, and I have a couple of those so I have many options. But who am I kidding... I don't usually like the matchy-matchy look so I will probably pair these with pink or something! Hehe.
Anyway, here they are on me. I took front, side and back photos. And I wore my new Zigi Kickin wedge sneakers! Not bad I think?!? =D
Anyways, I'm gonna sit on this for a few days and decide whether to keep both or not. But I'm for sure keeping one at least! Splits59 offers free return shipping as well within 30 days, so I have some time.
I'm kind of becoming obsessed with this brand! I keep adding other things to my cart, then not buying when I see that my total is like $500 or something lol. I gotta tell myself to slow down! But I'm so happy with my recent purchases so it's hard!
