Stabilyx Women's Insulator Tights

Those Stoko braces/baselayers certainly are expensive! I’m glad they may qualify as medical devices!

I'm curious about the waist fit-- I had a pair previously and even though I was quite small, wearing a size small, the waist was always a bit snug since I have little definition. (rectangle bod here) Is the waist still the 1" or so very strong elastic, or has it relaxed at all from previous years?

I can't speak to earlier versions b/c this is my first pair, but in my new pair of Endurance Insulator (size M), yes, the waistband is about 1in of slightly felted material with the drawstring inside. The waist width in size M is 13in (26in circumference) laid flat, and ~14.5in (29in circumference) when I try to pull the elastic a bit. So in my opinion, yes to strong elastic.

Also when I tried them on I found the waist comfortable, because the waist is high enough not to dig into the wider part of my hips, but it did roll down a little in front when I bent from the waist. I'm in the process of losing some pandemic weight, and I'm guessing the waistband won't do that about 5lbs from now.

I just got Bracelayer insulated compression tights (¾ length, so don't overlap ski boots) and skied with them for the first time today. Really liked them! Anyone else tried them?
I want to try these. How did you find the sizing? My Stabilyx are all M so assuming I am a M with these as well, but it would be nice to hear from someone who has them.

I just bought these in a M and will let you know about the sizing.

The M fits me well...or at least it will when my right leg is less swollen. I can tell that it's the correct size. I also wore M in Opedix and CW-X.

I think that these will provide excellent support for my knee, lower leg, my ITB and my hips. I frequently had issues with the other brands because their targeted support areas did not line up properly with my anatomy. For example, the knee support area would start out on my knee but would drift down since my legs are shorter than normal.

These seem better but it will be a while before I can try them out. If anyone sees them advertised on sale I might consider buying a non-insulated 3/4 length pair at a good price.

Whether I will also wear a brace is TBD.

I'm tall and relatively thin, and I typically wear a woman's size 12. My 3/4 Bracelayer pants are a size Large. They are nice and snug, as they should be, but the tight bands at the bottom dig into my calves and leave quite an indentation by the end of the day. The waistband also leaves its mark. I didn't wear them every day, but I was grateful for the support on long, demanding days and when my knees were bothering me.
