I've just bought a pair of Skins Essentials MX compression calf tights. I am exactly on the size border between S and XS, and went for the size S. My question - they feel snug enough, but are pretty easy to put on. A review in Trail Running magazine commented that they were a struggle to get on, which was a good sign. Therefore, should I go for the size XS? Is the degree of struggle to put them on a good sign of how effectively they work at compression?
The sizing guide for the 2xu version suggests that if you are on the border you should go for the smaller size. I was the same and went down to medium rather than large. They are snug but nor painfully tight. I dont think you want them to be restrictive but you definitely dont went them slipping down.
Thanks for that, Chunky Gentleman. I'll order the smaller size and send these ones back.
