These tights were advertised as a midweight or medium weight product, but I would have to disagree. They are pretty thin-- feel like unlined spandex. They are comfortable and stretch a lot both throughout the body and in the waist band. I wear a size 6 but ordered the medium-- they'll be fine, but probably should have ordered the small. These have a pretty smooth profile and would be good for someone who needs lightweight thermal bottoms underneath their normal clothes or work uniform as I do. Definately a lot less bulk than my merino wool bottoms, but then they don't seem as warm or as wind resistant. Another good thing about these bottoms is that they don't have underwear-like crotch seaming, so you can probably get away with wearing them as a running tight and no one would look at you funny. So, for versatility, smooth/low profile styling, comfort, and affordable price, consider these thermals-- just don't expect them to be super warm!
This base layer bottom is thinner than I expected but is warm as merino wool should be. I shall be wearing it every weekend for my long walks. My only reservation is that I am about the same size as the model shown in the picture; I am 34-25-34 while the model is 34-26-34, and I am 5'4" while the model is 5'6". I expected to look like the model when I put it on, but I don't. It is too large on my waist by about 5 inches in circumference. There is also an added piece in between legs, which to me makes it look like men's clothing. Thank God, I can sew so will alter it myself. But this would work better on a person with a 36-30-38 figure. I give four star for the soft buttery merino wool.
