Breaking Muscle Appraises the Women’s KNEE-Tec 3/4 Tights

AUTHOR: Becca Borawski

Breaking Muscle, the website dedicated to providing conditioning, and mind/body wellness programs, recently threw a pair of Opedix KNEE-Tec 3/4 Tights on managing editor Becca Borawski to see what she thought of them. 

"As soon as I put on Opedix tights on for the first time, my immediate thought was, “Huh, that feels really good on my knees.”

“So, in a sense, wearing these pants is like wearing kinesio tape. These are not compression pants like you’re used to thinking about. This is part of what can make getting the right size and fit confusing at first and I had to get my head around that. While part of these pants do feel compressive, they are not compression pants. They are meant to increase your neuromuscular awareness and function and therefore trigger your joints and to move properly. Opedix describes these pants as being an ‘external muscle’ there to assist you, and, according to them, wearing their gear will result in less stiffness, better joint alignment, and better movement patterns.”
