Thank you so much to Ms. S for sending along a terrific fit review with photos of the new Tight Stuff Tight *Reflective in Bordeaux Drama. I've mentioned it in the comments before but I don't think I've ever mentioned it in a post but I welcome any reader who would like to contribute a fit review to the blog to be shared with the community. I like to watermark photos so that they don't get republished on ebay or elsewhere so if you'd like to watermark your own photos please feel free to send me photos pre watermarked (make sure to place the watermark where it can't easily be cropped out). If they are not watermarked I will just go ahead and do that before publishing using 'lulumum' but if you'd like me to write your name let me know.
Tight Stuff Tight *Reflective Bordeaux Drama
I just wanted to share some pics with you in case you wanted to post them - no big deal if you don't! They're of the new Tight Stuff Reflective tight in bordeaux, which I don't think we've seen pics of yet. After all my pet peeving about how the bordeaux and gold were too close to school/sports teams colors, I went and ordered them anyway LOL. And I'm so glad I did.
I ordered a size 6 which is what I wear in Wunder Unders and Speed tights (I do size down to a 4 in seamless tights and some styles like Pace Rival Crops/Inspire crops, but I am very glad I didn't size down to a 4 in these because they would've been too tight). I'm not gonna lie - I broke a sweat getting these things on! My thighs are usually the problem area, but I found these particularly tough to get up over my feet and calves. They seem to fit looser for me at the waist, but I have the drawstring should that become a problem.
I complained about the price tag on these because I thought it was mainly due to reflectivity, but now that I see how different the material is on these, I can see some justification for a higher price (though I still think $148 is tough to swallow). I am IN LOVE with the matte finish and the genuinely tight feel on these. I recently bought the Vent It Out crops in black, and they have the same finish/feel, although they have a contrasting mesh panel. I highly recommend those as well.
HTH! Let me know if you have any questions.
