Disclaimer: I received a pair of SKINS DNAmic Compression tights as well as a SKINS sports bra to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to review, find, and write race reviews!


I’ve been wearing compression socks for a while now, but I have never tried any other type of compression wear.  This is one of the reasons I was so excited to review a pair of compression tights.  One of my concerns before trying them on was wondering just how tight the tights were going to be.  Were they going to be uncomfortably tight?  Were they going to fall down too easily?  My SKINS tights arrived and I tried them on…

Initial Thoughts

Comfy!  Yes, that’s right. Even though these tights are compression, they were not too tight!  As for the tights staying in place, I was not 100% satisfied with this.  I may have ordered the wrong size or I may have too much mid section fluff.  Even when I was as my peak physical fitness in 2012, I still had no waist.  I am just one straight line on both sides.  Perhaps this is why the tights did not stay up very well.  Overall, however, I am quite satisfied with the tights.

The Benefits

Did you know that SKIN DNAmic Compression Tights increases muscle oxygenation, stabilizes active muscles and reduces blood lactate build up, to enhance performance and speed up recovery time?  They do!

As stated on, “If there’s one pair of tights you need in your workout wardrobe this season it’s the DNAmic long tights. Combining the best in style with the best in our compression tech, the SKINS DNAmic long tights will keep you comfy and supported through the highest intensity training sessions. Give yourself a performance boost in the DNAmic long tights. They’ll carry you through from warm-up to cool-down and onwards to your post workout brunch date.”


Race Worthy

I ran one race while testing out the SKINS DNAmic compression tights.  It was a local 5k.  The last time I raced a 5k was back in October.  My training has been hit and miss lately, so I wasn’t really expecting anything great, but I was excited to see how the SKINS tights would impact my race.

My performance was much better than I expected!  I went into the race hoping to finish in under 30 minutes.  I ended up finishing in 27:16 which works out to be an average pace per mile of 8:44!

How did I perform so well?  I credit my speedy race to my new SKINS tights. The tights kept my legs feeling fresh and supported throughout the seedy run!
