Buying guide: Tag Rugby Tights
We offer Tag Tights for our female players looking for an alternative to our Tag Shorts. For some players buying tights can be a complicated process so we’ve put together our top tips for buying your first pair of tights.
Why should I buy a pair of Tag Tights?
You may find that wearing a pair of Tag Tights is more comfortable compared to Tag Shorts. Additionally, some players have reported improvement movement once switching to tights. While female players are welcome to wear any ITF approved Tag Shorts in Try Tag Rugby leagues, many do prefer to wear Tag Tights.
What type of Tag Tights are available?
There are two lengths available, short and mid. The mid-length are approximately two inches longer and therefore provide a little more coverage. Our black tights come in both short and mid length. All our special edition tournament tights are short length while our custom kit range is available in both short and mid length. There is no advantage to wearing one length or the other, it’s just a matter of player preference.
What size should I buy?
Sizes range from XS – XL and an inch guide measurement is provided with every size. These inch measurements equate to waist measurements in the same way as when you’re buying a pair of jeans. If you’re unsure of your measurements, you can find a guide to take your measurement on the internet.
The first time you see a pair of tights they may appear small but remember they are designed to stretch.
How do I know if my Tag Tights fit correctly?
If you’re not used to wearing Lycra sports shorts the first time you try on a pair of Tag Tights they will feel tight! It can feel strange to players used to wearing shorts however most players find they adjust quickly.
Your tights shouldn’t be loose and if they’re not tight enough you may find they are come down as players tag you. You don’t want to spend your whole game adjusting your tights! However, you also don’t want your tights to fit so tightly that they feel uncomfortable. The most important thing is to end up with a pair you feel comfortable playing in.
Can I try some Tag Tights on?
If you order a pair of tights from our online shop and decide they are the wrong size you can exchange these for another size (please see our exchange policy here). Please note that you are only able to return new and unworn Tag Tights.
If you do not want to purchase tights without trying them on please speak to your League Organiser who may be able to bring some test tights for you to try on at your league. Additionally, our tournament shops will have limited numbers of Tag Tights available to try on.
