CHOOSE YOUR SPORT
The smart runner should opt for polyester tights with compression and a stable, structured fit. This ensures the tights always stay in place (even during high levels of movement), all while continuously supporting the muscles. If you’re a dedicated yogi, you should go for a pair of high-waisted, seamless tights with a flexible design such as our popular CLEA or CI.

LOOK AFTER YOUR NEW TIGHTS
When you have finally found your perfect pair of tights, it goes without saying that you need to take good care of them. How you wash your tights is particularly important.
Regardless of which type of tights you choose to exercise in, you should avoid chucking them in a sweaty pile on the floor when you’ve finished your workout. Instead, we recommend hanging them up straight after you’re done working out, so that they can dry quickly. Whether you wash your tights after every workout or not is really a question of personal taste. However, when you do decide to wash your tights, make sure to keep temperature below 40 degrees and completely avoid using fabric softener. Fabric softener clogs the material’s stitching and the natural ventilation of your tights. Finally, you should avoid putting your tights in the tumble dryer and instead let them air dry in order to make sure they don’t lose their cooling properties.
