How to Pick the Perfect Tights

LuluLemon Tights- How to Pick the Perfect Tights

By Sally O'Neil, Editor in Chief   |  Pic credit: Jac Powell

With SO many tights on the market, how do you know which ones are right for the way you move + shake it? Whether you're sweating it out in Bikram, throwing punches (in boxing!), or leisurely walking the dog on weekends, I've got you covered.



Sucking you in at all the right places, compression tights offer joint support for those knees, but also improve blood flow for faster muscle recovery (so it's totally legit to wear these all day!). Keeping your muscles locked and loaded with these Tight Stuff Tights - complete with pretty scallop detailing.


We all need a comforting embrace. You need a classic style that holds you close and moves with you. Get that cuddle from these tights with a cheeky mesh insert for a little street style.


You need support for your key muscle groups, with some strategically placed stitching and 'zoning' to keep you secure through your abs, hips, bum and thighs. Opt for these crops to be caressed in all the right spots.


Well..semi naked. You need tights engineered to feel like second-layer skin that are super lightweight. You want to feel like you're wearing next to nothing so you can bend and flex in every direction with ease. Feel bare with these tights.


The perfect weekend attire - from Friday nights on the couch, Saturday walks in the sunshine right through to Sunday brunch with the girls. These pants should sit away from your body to give you maximum room to move. Get loose with some &go City Trek Trousers.

Given that I've had amazing use out of my trusty pair of black Lulu's for the three years, I personally recommend their range simply because I can vouch for their quality. They also have an awesome returns policy that goes like this: if a product is not working for you, tell us why and we'll take it back. Now that's customer service.

Do you have a go-to pair of tights that have seen you through hundreds of sweat sessions? Share with us in the comments below!
