I ordered them in size small, and I have to say again that Splits59 makes very very nice tights. Like the other 3 pairs I have from them, the fit and feel of these do not disappoint. However, they look way more flared on me than they do on the web model. I'm not sure if it's because of the way they were folded during shipping. But I like the mini-flared out look. I wonder if they will become less flared if I wash them?
I'm also not a fan of the logo placement right in the front. It's sooooo obvious. If the logo was hidden, I'd be able to wear them casually as well, because the style looks pretty much like skinny ankle pants.
There is also a patch over the knee area, which I did not even see from the website. It's not that obvious in person either, just surprised me.
And another detail the website picture doesn't show is the back of the calves - they have a vertical band going down starting from around the back of the knee.
Other than these details, they also have a nice wide waistband with hidden pocket. Anyway, so I'm not 100% happy with these. But $74 is a good price... so I'm going to think about it and decide whether to keep them or not. What do you think? I do like that they are different from my usual tights that are fitted all the way down the leg. I kind of wish I had gotten the Lululemon ones when they came out with this style a little while ago. I never had the chance to go try them on and then they were gone. But I think those could work better than these for street wear.
I also ordered the Misty M Cut Out Pullover in barberry (bright red). This one I'm definitely returning. It looks horribly unflattering on me, which is too bad because I love the color and the french terry is very soft. It actually says in the description to size up in this top, but I didn't read it when I bought it lol. So I got it in size small. Maybe that is my problem. But the body of this top doesn't even fit tight on me, it just looks boxy... with weird pointy hem on the sides.
It looks much cuter on their model:
Now I just have to decide if I should return just this pullover, or both the pullover and the tights! Such a hard decision! Definitely first world problem.
