This blog post is a bit of hommage to one of my fav blogs My Tights Wont Stay Up and a bit of a rant about one of the most annoying things in my life. Tights.
When I run commute to work I always take off my black leggings, put on black tights, and wonder why. Why don’t running companies make double duty leggings that you can wear under a dress. Why don’t tight companies make double duty tights that you can wear running?
Spanx tights work a lot like compression gear, on the waist & hips, but what about our poor running legs? My quads & calves would like some of that compression too. I see no reason why tights can’t be made into 100% compression wear. I’ve worn my Skins recovery leggings under a a few work outfits, but why double pack? There is a simple solution for this too.
I dare say it, but if men wore tights as much as we did, there would be many more offerings. Tights you can run in and work in, tights that are made with compression weave for recovery, even tights that at a basic level do their job and stay up all day. Women who are at the executive level of running companies! Listen up! Please make this your pet project to develop run/work/run wear!
