Yeah I'm a proper raver, don't you know

I've just bought some OMM tights from Wiggle and my word they're tight. They look like something out of Miley Cyrus's onstage wardrobe. They're tighter and more revealing than my tri shorts and reckon that I'd better wear shorts over them to save embarrassment for local womankind.

I run in Skins thigh compression stuff I think they are A200 - I love them. I used to wear boxers under shorts but asked here many moons ago what others wore.

So with shorts I wear the Skins and no pants.

In the winter I wear a pair of Adidas full length tights - not compression and shorts. I'm not one for showing off the danglies in tights. LOL.

I like running in tights, but am getting more used to the shorts and thigh tights now (and starting to prefer them).

Ran for the first six months in just shorts but moved to using a pair of Skins A200s during running and for a couple of hours afterwards. Don't know if the effect is psychological or physiological but do seem to aid recovery.

NB - Wear no pants under them. Much more comfortable.

NNB - Still wear shorts over the tights . Not a pretty sight for innocent bystanders otherwise.

It is worth spending a bit more and getting some tights that offer compression. 

I have used Skins, UnderArmour, Nkie Fit, and they all work.

The best thing is to try it and see Flob. 

If you have problems with calf niggles, then buy a pair of compression socks. 

If you notice the difference, then consider investing in a pair of tights.

Get a pair of small tights from m&s try them after a run if they work buy posh compression stuff. Cheap solution

Oh and no, real men do not wear shorts over their tights.

Don’t worry Flob, they can’t catch you anyway!

I just picked up a pair of Ronhill 'Advance Contour Tights' which I picked up on sale.

They feel very comfortable although I've yet to try running with them. I mainly got them for the very cold days / days where it is raining, as I usually wear shorts.

The only downside is the zip pocket on the rear is rather small. I can fit my iPhone in just but it might be hard to get it in whilst they are on & I have my keys to think about too!

I've yet to decide whether or not I will wear shorts over the top - it really depends on whether I need the extra pockets & if the water is wicked away well or not.

Either way I couldn't care less what people think of me, it's purely functional... although I don't think they look bad by themselves

When I was at Uni a couple of years ago, it was quite "fashionable" amongst the Rugby players to wear full length tights & shorts in the cooler months.

Bought 2 pairs of 'Lotto' tights a couple of years ago & found them good to wear then was bought a pair of Asics Hermes for a recent birthday, you can certainly tell the difference in quality.
