High Waist vs. Mid Waist

Unlike most activewear brands, at RunFaster each of our prints and styles come in both High and Mid waist options. So which is the right fit for you?

High Waist

Depending on the length of your torso, our high waist options will sit above your belly button. High waist is a wonderful option for supporting your stomach and midsection. Its particularly popular with women who love the feeling of feeling “sucked in” without the tightness or restriction on your breathing (we don’t want that!).

In the words of many RunFaster fans, the high waist options are preferred to support mum-tums, or those who are or have lost weight in this area. Our waistbands do not have an elastic band built-in to the top seam which means that there is no uncomfortable digging in.

Some of the reasons you may prefer High Waist include:

  • No muffin top
  • Elastic built into the waistband sides so no slipping or adjusting needed
  • Won’t fall down when running, jumping, squatting…anything!
  • Extra tummy support – holds everything in!
  • Great for all low to high impact workouts
  • Superior coverage material to smooth any lumps & bumps
  • Breathable, moisture-wicking, and quick-drying to withstand intense workouts
  • Amazing before, during pregnancy, and postnatal too – one pair does it all!
  • Wear the waistband high or fold it down
  • Ultra flattering on all body shapes

Below is a side-by-side comparison of the mid-waist to high waist. 

Mid Waist

Again, depending on the length of your torso mid-waist will sit at or just below your belly button. Many people like having less coverage on their midsection in the warmer months or on higher impact workouts. Mid waist is also a happy option for pear-shape bodies that have curvy hips and a narrow waist. For people who have a shorter torso mid-waist is a great option where high waist may be too tall.

  • Wide double-layer waistband, sits just below the belly button
  • You’ll love the two large side pockets big enough for your phone, keys, cards, cash & more!
  • Elastic built into the sides of the waistband so no slipping or adjusting needed and no need for a drawstring
  • Won’t fall down… ever!
  • Great for all low to high impact workouts
  • Comfy casualwear
  • Superior coverage material to smooth any lumps & bumps
  • Breathable, moisture-wicking, quick-drying

The beauty is that both of these options are suitable for a large range of body shapes and sizes. Our advice is to try both and see how they feel on, you can always return them if they’re not quite right (just keep the tags on! ;))
