I need some advices on sizing. I wear most thavar and thanaz in size 29 and it fits pretty good. As for chi tights, should i size up to 30? or keep my usual size? I do not want it to be too tight like tepphar.
I wear 29/30 thavar/ shioner. And have 2 chi-tights. One 29 (brown) and one 30 (blue).
The 29 fits ok in the waist, but tight on the legs. The 30 is wide in the waist, but fits good on the legs.
The problem with this model is that it has no belt loops on the side. Only front and back. So, wearing a belt to 'keep them together', isn't going to work. Since the sides will slip under the belt. Which doen't look good and doesn't feel well, since you keep lifting them up and wearing a shirt in them looks awfull. Compare that with the strange waist/ tight measurements and you'll have a hard time picking the right size.
My advice: stick to your size and accept that they are a bit tight.
I have a Chi-Tight-A (100% cotton, no elasthine) in size 32 that fits me fine, even though the waist has loosened up quite a bit after a few wears.
Does anyone here own a pair of no-stretch Chi-Tight-A or B and can tell me if they do stretch as well, especially at the waist?
I'd be interested in the herringbone-887D-style Chi-Tight in particular, but any other model will work as well.
