I've only worn these once so far but I love them. They are the most interesting workout pants/tights I've ever worn. The "athletic tape" inside of the tights wraps around your legs and you feel secure. Once you have them lined up like the photo you can really feel the compression.
The downside is that I had to keep pulling them up. They don't come up as high as other 'yoga' pants or tights by Puma and I felt like they were slipping down a bit. I had the knee part lined up with my knee but I am a bit on the shorter side so maybe that's why. I would like to have a drawstring or something to help them stay in place - or a wider band. I didn't like the idea that people at the gym might see my under things due to slippage.
