THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO TRAINING TIGHTS

  

HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST TIGHTS FOR YOUR TRAINING

What is the difference between training tights, yoga tights and running tights? What features are you looking for? Tights with a drawstring? Low or high waist? Tights with an iphone pocket? At Casall, we know our tights. And we know that a great pair of tights is an essential part of any workout kit. Whether running, training at the gym, or yoga, we’ve got you covered with the right tights.  

1. CHOOSE THE RIGHT SIZE

Size matters - at least when it comes to training tights! Training tights should have a slim and tight fit so the stay in place during your training session. Our training tights are normal in size - meaning that you should choose your usual size. They should fit comfortable, not too tight so they won't hinder your movements.

If the tights are too big they will be in the way and you will contanstly pull them up and adjust them through your session. Make sure that the tights fit you well both around your legs but also in the waist, say for example that they are really tight on your legs but not in the waist - choose another model! Training tights have alot of stretch in them which means that you can probably squeeze in a smaller size than in regular pants - but be careful not to go too small either, if they are too tight they may hinder your mobility.

 

2. CHOOSE THE RIGHT FUNCTIONALITY

Different activities require different features when it comes to training tights. There’s no doubt that movement in yoga can be entirely different from movement in your gym workouts, so we designed specific features for your asanas and your squats—and everything in between. 

Sculpture Tights - meet the ultimate allrounder

To be honest - our tights can actually be used for most kinds of training. Even though they are designed with a specific activity in mind we use the same materials and functions in many of them. However, if you only want one pair of tights Sculpture is the obvious choice! They are our most versatile tights and we recommend them to all sorts of training - from yoga, to the gym, running or every day use.

Sculpture tights are made of the superior Sensitive material. 4-way stretch, extremly good moisture management and lightweight - they have a cooling effect which make them so great to sweat in.

Training tights for Yoga

Tights for yoga are often made from soft, warm, figure-hugging fabrics. And for yoga tights to perform well at home or in the studio the fit and feeling needs to be comfortable so you can flow freely - hence the importance of material choice.

Our yoga collection is made from recycled and sustainable materials which we call conscious choice. We often focus on seamless solutions to avoid any chafings. The waistband are often wider to give more stability in your poses. 

Training tights for Running

If running is more your vibe, take it outdoors and shop Casall running tights. These are our most technical training tights. The materials used offer great support and moisture management to help carry you through the more intense sessions. 

Drawstring in the waist, pocket for your keys, iphone and technical features that creates a superior fit. Often we also use reflective details and wind- & water resistant fabrics when it comes to running tights - to keep you safe and comfortable through your runs.

3. CHOOSE THE RIGHT FEATURES

What features are you looking for? Tights with a drawstring? Low or high waist? Tights with an iphone pocket? For running tights it is essential with refelctive details, ventilation and mositure management qualities whilst for you the material choice is often the deciding factor. Seamless or high-waisted, cropped and squat-proof, all Casall Tights are designed to make you look and feel your best.

 


Choose your fabric

Casall Tights are made with breathable, stretchy, sweat-wicking fabric to help keep you dry and moving freely during your workout.

  • Casall choose premium fabric (polyamide blends) which are high density and figure hugging  to hold muscles firmly in place and improve blood thereby boosting athletic performance. Perfect for gym training or running.
  • Our yoga collection is made from recycled and sustainable materials which we call conscious choice. We often focus on seamless solutions to avoid any chafings.
  • When it comes to our Sculpture fabric, we are using an exclusive high-tech polyamide fabric, manufactured in Italy. It has an unusually high content of Lycra making the tights supportive, strong and flexible. Plus, the fabric is constructed quite flat on the surface which evens out the skin and dries really quickly.

 


Choose your type of fit

Casall Tights should feel like second-skin on your body; snug across the buttocks, thighs, and calves. The waistband should not be too tight so that it can create the dreaded “muffin top” or too loose where you have to keep pulling them up every five minutes during a workout. When it comes to tights we have two different types of fit:

  • Slim fit - we said it before but tights should have tight fitting, not too tight but definitely tight on your body. The size can feel different in different tights and that most likely is due to the different fabrics that we use.
  • Compression fit - Casall tights made from a high density polyamide fabric; a strong and stretchy material that forms your body and produces a light compression (pressure) mainly around the calves. Numerous studies have examined the effects of compression on athletic performance and injury prevention.

 


Choose between low, regular or highwaisted tights

Our tights comes with three different waistband widths, all carefully chosen for each tights. 

  • High waist (10 cm waistband) - Bonden or with a thin power mesh inside to make the waistband flat and comfortable. High waisted tights hugs the body which makes them very comfortable. High waisted tights are perfect for yoga, but are also a favourite on many activities right now since it is quite in fashion.
  • Regular waist (8 cm waistband) - Our 8cm waistband is our most popular waist and has become a Casall classic. A soft wider elastic inside the waistband keeps the tights in place and creates a really flattering shape.
  • Low waist (5 cm waistband) - This is actually the regular waist height when it comes to training tights but we call it low waist. A soft and stretchy elastic makes the waist comfortable against your body.

 


Choose the tights length that you want

Most of our tights are either 7/8 length or full length. However we do have more options as you can see in our Essential collection: Essential Short Tights, Essential Bike Tights, Essential 3/4 Tights and Essential 7/8 Tights

WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE CASALL TIGHTS

"When someone tries a pair of Casall tights for the first time they often smile and ask us what it is that makes them feel so great. As a designer at Casall I love to hear this question, since we know that if you love wearing your workout clothes you are more likely to actually get your training done as well. It can really inspire you to train more."

MARIE FREDROS, HEAD OF DESIGN AT CASALL

 

Casall's tights are true favourites, you always look and feel great in them. The fit of our tights is magnificent, they actually make you perform like a star. This is what makes them unique:

FLEXIBLE AND ODOR-REPELLENT POLYAMIDE FABRICS  

We use polyamide fabrics beacuse it is flexible and comfortable materials. Polyamide fibers were originally made as an alternative to silk - so you can imagine that the fabric is soft and flexible - comfortable to wear and especially to move around in. Polyamide fibers don't have any odor problems. The more oleophilic a fabric is, the more it will hold on to body odor. Compared to polyester which is oleophilic and used in many workout clothes - polyamide won't smell.

SOFT WAISTBAND FOR MAXIMUM COMFORT

Our tights comes with three different waistband heights, all very soft and comfortable.

FULL INSIDE LEG PANEL

We use a full length inside panel to minimize friction and chafing while moving and with no seams in the crotch. The full length panel is straight and looks great in action

YOKE AT BACK FOR NICELY SHAPED BUM

The shape of the back yoke is important to highlight the body's own curves and to give the bum a flattering lift.

FLATTERING SEAM PLACEMENTS

Seams are placed and shaped to highlight the body's curves, creating a comfortable fit and experience that you look and feel your best.

PERFECT FIT

All of the technical solutions together creates a perfect fit to follow your body while moving.
