A lot of Scandinavian women, for example, are struggling to find activewear that fits their long legs and backs – as Scandinavian women are on average very tall. The tights mentioned above are therefore customer favourites, as these are our longest.

2. 7/8 Tights

First things first, what are “7/8 Tights?”

“7/8" refers to the length of the tights. These tights have an inseam which is 1/8th shorter than a full-length style. While they are not as short as cropped tights, they typically rest higher on the leg than an average pair of gym tights – just above the ankle. This model is one of the favourites for women on the shorter side, as the ankle-length fits them as a tall girl's “normal length”.

Examples of 7/8 Tights:

We also offer a Ribbed Pants (jogger) in Black and Olive in the same 7/8 length.


3. Capri Tights

Capri Tights, also referred to as “6/8 leggings”, are tights that reach just below the knee (depending on how long legs you got).
