How tight should compression tights be?

Recommended Posts

sorry, abit off topic but i really wish to stress the point to all guys to NOT WEAR TIGHTS walking around. i've seen guys walking ard hawker centres in their tights. even if you just finished a workout or what please have the decency to not walk ard in your tights, wear a pair of shorts over, get a change of clothes. please.

Just my 2cents: Instead of asking another person NOT to wear tight walking around, did you try looking at somewhere else? You can control what you are looking at but you have no control of what another person wanna do. :icecream::give_rose: *peace*

(although I personally don't really care)

so leggings are okay on ladies as long as they wear a shirt/blouse over it?

Haha, personally I think it's fine for everybody to wear whatever they want, but I found the website hilarious that somebody took the time and effort to register the domain and create it :)

But more on topic, I wear XS full length 2xu and I believe they provide good compression and are quite tight on me but I always have great difficulty getting the end of the tights over my heels when taking them on and off, can easily take 5 mins for me to try to get them off. Do more people have the same issue and possibly any solutions.

obviously i'd want to look away but if it's in a crowded area? there has been many occasions, even if you don't feel embarrassed, i feel embarrassed. it's like wearing your underwear walking around, it's basically indecent. it goes the same for women too. just wearing an extra layer of clothing on top, is it really that hard?

i'm not trying to control what people wear but i'm raising the point that it's really indecent and an eyesore.

alright back to topic, i do encounter the same problem when it comes to removing the tights at the heels area. i'm using 2xu long XS for recovery, it's abit loose at some areas, so it's not really that effective.

recently i tried Compressport, i'd tell anyone to give them a try. it's very comfortable and i had a crampless marathon 2 weeks back (after cramping up for the last 2 editions). several of my friends used them too and the feedback is generally good. can check them out.

46123, when i "pinch" the surface of the tights, i will pinch myself too. So i guess mine is of the "right" fit. I think S will be too long for me since for XS, i have excess fabric behind my knee cap.

My dad had to wear compression socks after his heart bypass surgery. I wonder if i will get weird stares when i wear his socks out for my runs.

Compression tights arent very healthy for men who are trying to conceive. Birth rate for Singapore is already at an all time low. So Singaporean men, please do not contribute to the low fertility rate.

ya, when i try to pinch the tights, i will pinch myself too, guess this shld be the right tightness.

i heard that western markets and eastern markets may have sizing difference, even if the brand is the same. "M" for Australian market and "M" for japanese market is not the same measurement actually.

    • Now that you are excited about what is ahead of 2020, uncle shall end last post in this forum with this local video production which have inspired uncle to Run Around Singapore. Enjoy.       Wishing all, your families, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  End
    • my dear @Lady Ice, let uncle explains simply... Abbott World Marathon Majors Wanda The Abbott World Marathon Majors is a series consisting of currently 7 of the largest and most renowned marathons in the world. Wanda Group or Dalian Wanda (Chinese: 大连万达), is a Chinese multinational conglomerate based in Beijing. China's Wanda buys Ironman Triathlon owner for $650 million. Wanda 大连万达 markets and promotes those cities that are in this exclusive club. IAAF provides the sanctioned Road Race Labels (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum) Rules and Regulations to any country which want to host must meet the strict selection trial required as entry to the Abbott World Marathon Majors. Invitation to World ranking runners must be regional, not continental only. Singapore, being having the financial resources, has the advantage. The disadvantage is the size of participants. So to increase the size and qualifying runners, she needs to invite also regional runners to participate. Expect STPB (like what @lonewolf said) to aggressively promote the Hub of Marathons.  
    • Ok - so am old lah 😛 - been  on this forum for far too long...
    • Saga 1: The SA's internal carding system - which allocates athletes up to $1,200 per month based on various criteria - had expired month without the necessary follow-up. (info: https://www.straitstimes.com/sport/officials-say-track-body-must-sort-out-disputes)   Saga 2: Against paying Singapore Athletics share of award money  (info: https://www.straitstimes.com/sport/football/soh-against-paying-sa-share-of-award)   Summary: Soh (did not take part), Michelle Sng (did not win a Gold Medal), and Shanti Veronica Pereira ( Collected 2 Bronzes), the 2 Sagas will not affect Shanti Veronica Pereira because she can stay on with the $1,200 monthly allowance, happily with her Coach, and she gets her 2-Bronze Award for her Performance (and surely gladly give 20% to SA). SA will be delighted with the 2-year Excellence Peak Performance Program till 2021. The greatest loser in the Sagas is Soh because he will not have both - $1,200 monthly allowance, and already based on his PB, he could have collect a Gold Medal from 2019 SEA Games with an Award of $10,000. Even if he will be unwilling to share with the 20% to SA. SA only loss "$2,000" but save $1,200 monthly allowance for Soh for the next 2 years (savings of $28,800). SA -+$28,600 vs Soh -$10,000 - $28,800 (2020-2021) As for Michelle, she already said she wants to retire in 2017, but the surprise Gold Medal on that year makes her a defending Champion. Pain, Injury and Tears - for every jump. Plus she has reached beyond 30, and to be family-focused should be her entitlement in life. High Jump has given her a sporting life and to announce her honourable retirement from the call of Nation. It will be expected. SA - which has been controversial from the core. Change the whole SA? How many times have SA changed? Life as Usual. No change is better then to Change. Whatever. Marathon has been a Gold Medal for SEA Games. We will surely make a comeback. Without SA, marathoning is the only key spark in Athletics that even without $1,200 monthly allowance, Mok and Soh can be regional champions. So you know what Mok's Saga with SA, "Uncle, you say lah, the $1,200 monthly allowance, don't have money how to go overseas for marathon qualification mark closer to SEA Games, use personal paylah!" Now, everyone knows what is SAga is about right? "Money Not Enough, how to run overseas Marathon races." "What I win, is all Mine not yours, SA."  "SA :  gain $28,600 vs Soh minus $10,000 minus $28,800 (2020-2021)" "Ashley Liew demands S$120,000 in damages from teammate Soh over ‘false’ claims about sportsmanship act still outstanding."   Uncle wishes Soh Gets Lots of Money for the year of the Metal Rat (2020).    
    • The shorter answer may be there are many IAAF races but only 7 WMM (at the moment). So its a combination of scarcity and prestige.  And one more thing. STPB no more P liao. STPB was established in 1964. Nowadays it just STB (since 1997!)
