Dear Under Armour

Dear Under Armour,

I love your running clothes.  They seriously are great.  They keep me warm or cool, always comfortable, and make me feel speedy.  Which is why I was so excited when I got a pair of your running tights as a Christmas gift.  The looked and felt great.

And then I tried to run in them.

I realized, I either needed to hold my pants up, or tie a shirt around my waist in order to prevent myself from becoming a running plumber.  Not a good look for Daphne.

Today, I thought I would be smarter and safety-pin these lovely tights, like so:

Sorry for the awkward pic, y'all!

A safety-pin on each side, and a band-aid underneath to prevent chafing from the pin.  I must thank Krystal-Rose for the additional safety-pin and the excellent Woody band-aid, because just one was not enough to keep my pants up.  All this, to complete an almost 8 mile run (at 8:52 pace! woo!).  I will say it worked, but I’d like to not have to do this again.  Please start making your waistbands proportionate to the pant size.

Love & Running,

  1. Oh no! Sorry to hear they don’t fit so great, but creative fix!

  2. Dude, how goofy?! For the price they were, they shoulda fit like a GLOVE. I like your macgyvering skills and making it work 😛

  3. Baggy running bottoms are the worst! Like your make-shift belt!

  4. Hah are they mens? I bought a pair of Nike men’s tights and had the same problem!! But my underarmor tights fit pretty well (I did buy them like 3 years ago though- hey at least they’re durable).

  5. How annoying! I have that problem with pants in general….pants that fit my things and butt are always too big in the waste. I should start a brand of jeans made for athletes! But seriously, you’d think UnderArmor would fit…I love my nike capris (and they have a draw string) and my lulu pants. Yes, the lulu pants are expensive, but they do last forever…they even survived my fall off of a scooter/vespa!!

  6. I’ve never tried UnderArmour brand tights myself… I have CW-X, which, are a workout to put on, very small fitting, and I never have to worry about them falling off.
    Glad the safety pin worked though!
