New Balance Printed Tights Fit and Feel

When you first pick up the NB Performance Printed tights, you’ll notice the material feels different than what you may be used to. The material feels thicker, and less stretchy. At first thought, you might thicker material is going to bee too hot or not as comfortable. WRONG. The performance out-did any thin/typical yoga pant we’ve ever tried, and they had a better fit.

The other main difference of the Printed Tights is that they are fitted. REALLY FITTED. While most workout tights will have a few seams, or a line of stitching here and there – they aren’t fitted. Too many stretchy workout pants are like tights without feet. They might be stretchy and comfortable, and they might look good when you first put them on – but when you start moving around they move out of place. You’re best hope is to just keep pulling them, and hope they stay there for just a while.

In contrast, the NB Performance Printed tights are more than fitted, they are flattering. The NB Performance tights have a fitted waist band that is super comfortable and keeps the pants where they are supposed to be. No riding down, or riding up. Stretching the body to the limit through several yoga poses, they stayed exactly in place. Unless you are wearing high rise yoga pants go up almost to your belly button, typical other yoga pants you have to pull up after doing the childs pose. The fabric is also resilient The fit and elasticity has remained perfect through several washes and kept it’s color and shape.

Note: when buying these, as they are fitted – you need to order the right size. They fit true to size. Anyone over a size 4 needs a medium. Follow the sizing chart.

New Balance Fabric Technology & Performance

Part of the NewBalance dry collection, this moisture wicking fabric is the best high-performance fabric we have ever tested. EVER. While the market flooded with workout “high performance” fitness apparel, the New Balance Performance tights live up to their name. Pulling moisture away from the body, these quick drying workout tights keep you cool, dry, comfortable and in style.

We can say this confidently, as we tested all our high-performance the fabrics in the most extreme conditions. You won’t find a more extreme climate to test cooling moisture wicking fabric than a a Bikram Hot Yoga studio. We tested the NB Performance printed tights in several high-intensity studio workouts – heated to 104 degrees and 40% humidity.

What what so amazing, is that in contrast to typical studio or yoga tights – the fabric on the NB Performance Printed Tights felt much thicker than the typical super stretchy capris we’re all use to.

Walking into a sauna workout wearing thick”er” materials was daunting. Yet something amazing happened, the fabric is like magic! The pants actually stayed dry, and feeling my skin under the pants – it was completely dry. We won’t say brands, yet we tested the pants while also wearing a “moisture wicking” tank top, and the tank top was wet after the workout. This was especially noticable after getting into a cold car after the workout, the tank stop was still damp. The last thing you want when stepping out into cold temperatures is anything damp. The NewBalance performance printed tights on the other hand, were dry – and the “thicker” material that was suspicious as first – was a nice barrier from the elements . Based on this, these New Balane Performance Printed tights have got to be the most versatile workout/fitness tights you’ll ever find. Ideal for running outdoors (protect you from the wind), and the cooling moisture wicking ability is perfect for any workout.

New Balance Fashion Tank Review

“Fashion Tank”. That is an understatement. Why can’t all shirts fit like this? The design of this tank is chic, flirty and comfortable.

First Impressions

The ruched/gathered seams accentuate your waist without being skin-tight. This Fashion Tank will fit better, and compliment your figure more than any shirt in your closet. Wear this tank with the New Balance Printed tights, and you have the best workout get-up ever made. Don’t take our word for it. This outfit got more compliments than any other outfit – and that includes outfits that aren’t for workouts. Perfectly coordinated with dark navy and bright salmon/pink – this outfit got noticed wherever it was worn, from the Yoga Studio to the gym. “Love your shirt, where did you get that?”, “those pants are SO cute!”. Ideal for workouts, or just going around town running errands or hanging out with friends.

Fit and Feel

Most workout tanks fit tight tight, tight all over – which doesn’t really flatter anyone. On top of that, skin tight tanks aren’t very practical for working out – they don’t let you breath, can feel claustrophobic and ride-up. The New Balance fashion tank has chic straps, that let the tank “fall” perfectly. While the tank is fitted, the design of ruched sides creates more room around the midsection which is more flattering – and comfortable. On top of that, this super classy design improves the performance during workouts. The tailored look offers more room for you to breathe, and room to move comfortably.

The way the straps fit over the collar bone and shoulders/back is flirty and new. The high quality fabric is the perfect shade of navy with a touch of sheen to it. The material feels and looks expensive (without the price tag). This tailored look is something you’d typically find on an expensive blouse/shirt. The dark navy color has more personality than black – and more mature than pink. Yet the bright straps are sporty and cute. The high quality fabric has some actual weight to it, so on top of falling perfectly – it doesn’t ride up. The New Balance tank has excellent material that perfectly conforms to your figure. The look is seriously almost too classy to be workout gear.

The NB Fashion Tank is is long and slimming. Wear this tank over any tights, without having the seams of your pants showing through your shirt and without having to constantly pull down your tank. The fabric is soft, with expertly designed seams, and the under-arm hemming is just in the right place so you runners can forget about shaffing. The straps are positions just right, that you almost don’t feel them. The New Balance Tank looks better, and functions better than any other tank we’ve tried.

Fit and Feel

The soft smooth fabric has such flex to it – it literally feels like a second skin. The waist band is fitted, for a contoured design. The fit is somewhat of a high-rise, which can be a good or a bad thing depending on your preference. Yet the waist and rise of the studio tights make them absolutely more functional for Yogi’s.

High performance sweat wicking fabric, the New Balance Studio tights are part of the New Dry collection. These tights are a must-have for any serious yogi, especially if you are into Bikram yoga. The open heel design just feels good. On top of that, the “soles” have silicone grippers for extra traction (without having to wear weird and bulky “yoga socks”). Yet it’s important to note for those of you with higher arches, you may not get the same full-benefit of the grips as others (as there simply isn’t enough surface area in contact with the ground). Yet regardless of the grip, we notices a great benefit of the open-heel design. The New Balance Dry fabric literally works like a miracle, and soaks up your sweat before your even feel it. When it comes to hot yoga studio workouts, keeping a grip on the mat can seem nearly impossible unless you have a no-slip yoga towel on top of your mat.
