Splits59 Nova Capri Tight!

I loved my Splits59 Ginger 3/4 Tight so much after my workout that I ordered 2 pairs of Splits59 Nova Capri Tights!  I really think the Ginger tights are perfect and exactly what I need, they were so comfortable, didn't ride down at all, and I didn't have to feel self-conscious when I was stretching with people behind me.  I love them!  I had read about the Nova tights before being a favorite of celebrities, like Kim Kardashian has more than one pair.  So I figured they'd probably be a good bet to get next.

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!

  1. I really enjoy reading your blog! It's very unpretentious and fun. :)

    Do you think you'd do a post reviewing comparable workout crops/leggings/pants (eg. Splits 59, Yogasmoga, Lululemon etc) ? I'll be really curious to see how you think they hold up to each other (fit, look, comfort, stylishness etc)

    1. Hi Delia! Good idea! Although I don't have too many non-Lulu bottoms lol. I am trying to collect more though! Let me see what I can come up with. =)

  2. Can I just say (not meant in a creepier way), your bum looks so great in these crops! The side view is like "bam!" Love the wedge sneakers too:). Thanks so much for reviewing all the non-lulu options. Enjoy reading your blog too!!!

    1. Hahaha thanks!! I think the tights do enhance the rear view and the wedges help too! They are women's secret weapon right? =)

  3. Omg! You got me hooked on this. I ordered both colors one in small and one in medium. There is a big difference between the two. I'm keeping the smalls. They are super comfy, adorable, and such good quality. I have to say thank you because I almost didn't order them if I hadn't seen your review on them!

    1. After further assessment, I've decided that size S is too big for me in these and have sent them back. They have free return shipping! So happy you got them and are happy with them!

  4. I have been following your blog for years, and it's really helpful for sizing!! I was just on carbon38.com and these capris were on sale. I remembered you reviewed them a while ago, and I needed help with sizing. I wear a 4 in lulu bottoms and know that's what you prefer too. So I came and did a search found your review, and ordered the Splits59 in XS. Then I noticed the date of your post! Over two years ago, and it's still helpful!!! Excited to get mine in the mail!! Thanks for all the hard work!
