Fit and Fabric

We’re a little self obsessed. We LOOOOVE how our garments look, fit, feel and function. Obviously, we want you to feel the same way. Check out the below questions to pick out the right tights and size for you!

What is the fit like?

The compression fabric used for our leggings and crops takes on a second-skin like fit.

At first it will feel really firm—but the material will relax to your body shape and won’t bunch, sag or roll-down during your workout.

Just like a great pair of skinny jeans you might need to jiggle into them—but once you are in them they will fit like a glove and you’ll never want to take them off! (We don’t recommend this for a couple of reasons though - you know, like showering and personal hygiene stuff. But whatever, we don’t judge. You do you!)

What size am I?

Hello, hi, how are you? Nice to meet you. I am Active Truth’s super handy, dandy size guide.
I give an approximation of size conversions. However, as there are no standard Australian size guidelines, we suggest using the below measurements table to find your perfect fit.

If you are unsure or in-between sizes we recommend sizing up.
They don’t fit upon arrival? No worries. Check out our 100% happy returns and exchanges policy.

What is the fabric like?

We use a superior, high performance, premium, compression fabric that is the ultimate multitasker! (I know, lots of adjectives. Let us explain why.)
It’s moisture wicking, drawing moisture away from the skin and keeping you nice and cool when working out. It also has UV protection for outdoor workouts.
Our black tights are 100% squat proof so you need not fear about bending or moving and your tights becoming sheer. The finish has a light sheen, but is not shiny.
All our tights have a double-layer high-waistband which gives optimum core-support that won't budge during a workout. You won't need to keep tugging up your tights during movement as they will sit right where they should be without hassle. While you are on the move, feel supported by the two way stretch of the compression fabric.
Fabric composition is 76% Polyester, 24% Elastane

What is the difference between the Essential and the Ultimate Tights? 

The Essential and Ultimate Tights are both exactly the same fit and fabric, the only difference is that the Ultimate Tight has a zip pocket in the waistband and the Essential Tight is pocket free.

Maternity

Got a bun in the oven? Need some fab new maternity tights? I mean, we aren’t psychics, but here are some things you are probably wondering.

What size should I get in the maternity tights?

We always recommend picking your pre-pregnancy size. This way you can ensure a great fit around the legs and bottom. If you are between sizes or unsure, then it’s best to size up.

What is the maternity fit like?

Active Truth Mama Pregnancy Tights are designed with a double-layer supportive bump band that can be worn over or under your belly.

When should I wear them?


Skinny jeans have become your new nemesis when it comes to getting changed? The time has come my friend, to give our Mama Pregnancy Tights a go and enjoy your pregnancy in the comfort of maternity activewear. The bump band grows with you and will be a great fit during an entire pregnancy and as a transition piece for your post-baby body too. Don’t just restrict them to your activewear wardrobe either – our tights play well with dresses, long tops and boots too! Read more about the fit and feel of our tights

What are the benefits of wearing maternity tights?

I mean, apart from looking FAB-U-LOUS, there are lots of benefits wearing our maternity tights. The core support on these babies are amazing, the fabric used in our leggings supports shape retention and is breathable and moisture-wicking making it the best choice for hot days (or hot flushes). Our leggings are also squat proof, which means you’ll never need to worry about the fabric becoming see-through no matter how much it stretches or how much you practice your Legally Blonde bend-n-snap (well as much as you can with a baby bump!).

We’ve had plenty of positive feedback from mamas-to-be about how much the compression in our tights have helped with managing varicose veins, symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD)/pelvic pain, or just the general aches and pains of growing and carrying around a new human.

I'm post-partum, should I keep wearing my Mama Tights or purchase regular tights? What's the difference?

The Mama Pregnancy Tight and our regular tights (Essential, Ultimate and Smart Pocket) are made from the same fabric and have the same fit around your hips and legs. The difference is in the waistband. The Mama Tight has a softer waistband that curves under your bump and sits a bit higher than the regular tights. The regular tights have a straight waistband which is designed to provide firm core support.

If you are after more of a compression fit post pregnancy we recommend wearing our regular tights once it is comfortable to do so, as they will have firmer compression and be more like a recovery tight. ​
