Fit Review! Speed Tight V in Variegated Knit

December 19, 2016

Hello Monday!  Here is a Special Review Monday (couldn't think of a snappy name that starts with a M) since I didn't have a proper Fit Review for you guys on Friday.

For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and typically wear a size 4 in Lululemon bottoms.



Speed Tight V in Size 4

Last time I tried the Speed Tight V, I accidentally picked up a size 6 which was a bit too loose.  I ordered these in variegated knit to give a proper review.  Fit is true to size.  If you're in between sizes I would size up.  I found these to be slightly compressive but nothing major.


Length is also an issue for me and these are too long of course.  You can see in the photo if I had them hemmed (3-4 inches) I would lose the reflective detail.  


(photo to show how much I would need to cut off if I got these hemmed)

Waist is mid-rise which I prefer.  The variegated knit is slightly scratchy when I initially put them on. However, by the time I was finished with the photo shoot, I didn't notice the scratchiness anymore.  The fabric also feels slightly on the stiff side.  I expected these to be more soft like herringbone, but I guess if you're a hardcore runner, they would not hold up if the fabric is too soft.  

The pocket on the side is a nice feature.

If you don't to hem these, the slouchiness in this photo isn't bad actually.  My inseam is 26-27 inches.



Overall, I definitely love the look of the new Speed Tights.  I did not find these to be sheer in the bend test.  Because I'm not a hardcore runner and don't run outdoors anymore I am returning these.  I'm glad I tried them and hopefully this post will help some other petite runners out there who are looking for a review.

    1. I know you're a big fan of the Speed Tights. I went to the store today quickly to see if they had anything new but nope. I did pick up a new FTB Zen bra tho! Pretty excited about that.

  2. Omg, they look so good on you! I am also not a big outside runner, but they are incredibly nice,) Maybe one could used them for hiking? (Looking for some reason to buy them,))

    1. Sure, any outside activity would do. Don't see why you couldn't wear these for hiking also! =)

  4. They look great on you. I like the color contrast of the seaming on the variegated knit. Since you don't run outside, you reallly don't need the reflective detail anyway. Keep the pants and hem them- they really complement you!
