Wanted to love these...
I so wanted to love these shorts- they are comfortable and soft, and I love the waistband. But, as others have mentioned, they run a bit big- I wear a 2, and can't order a size down. They also don't have a pocket, and with the seaming you would definitely need to wear underwear (or risk some interesting chafing!) which wouldn't work for long runs in warm weather, especially given that the fabric is thicker.
- fits too big, no pocket, no liner and raised seaming
Love the fit and fabric - the seams and colour blocking are flattering and the shorts have a nice fit. Fabric has a good weight to it. I took the advice of a previous reviewer and ordered a size down from my normal size and I'm happy I did. As with all tight little shorts, these rode up on me during a trial run outside. Might be different on the treadmill because I get sweatier which usually helps thing stay put. So didn't totally love them for the run but did love them for the weights workout after. I think it's possible that my body type just doesn't work well for tight shorts and running.
- Fabric, details, overall fit
- Rides up, some wedgie action
Comfy but ng for running
Ordered my usual roga size and found theses shorts to be loose feeling...went out for a 7 mile run and had to go home halfway through to change because they rode up and rolled up and drove me nuts
- Waist band
- Rides up
So Close, But Not Good
I really want to love these shorts but after many runs I am pretty disappointed. These are now the shorts I wear when everything else is dirty.
I LOVE the high waist, but the shorts run huge in the legs. They roll up constantly, causing wedgies EVERYWHERE.
The fabric is also a miss. While soft and very comfortable, the fabric is not technical enough for running. It almost feels like I'm wearing cotton? I prefer more wicking and compression. Plus, the color. Soft material + gray shorts + sweat = the "I peed my pants" look EVERY TIME.
And, no pocket. Come on.
- High waist
- Color, fabric choice, fit, no pocket.

I LOVE THESE SHORTS. I FIND THAT THEY ARE THE PERFECT LENGTH. NOT TOO SHORT AND NOT TOO LONG. THEY ARE LONGER THAT THE STRIDE SHORT MINI AND SHORTER THAN THE STRIDE SHORT (AT LEAST HOW THEY FIT). THE WAIST BAND IS ALSO NICE---IT SITS FEEL WITHOUT SQUEEZING. THE FABRIC IS ALSO A GOOD SEMI-THICK WEIGHT.

Love, order a size smaller though
Love the shorts. I normally wear an 8 (have 2 pairs of the stride shorts). I wanted something shorter for this year and love the idea of a higher waist. My only issue is that fabric is stretcher that the Stride Shorts, so the size 8 fits but doesn't stay put running. The waist is perfect! But the legs do ride up for me and it can cause a little wedgy action. I also have longer less muscular legs, which may be part of it. I would have exchanged for a size 6 but had already worn on a run when I discovered this. For a tighter fit that stays put in the legs, I would recommend going with a size smaller, especially if in between sizes. Also there isn't a pocket for a house key or any gels.
- Higher waist, drawstring, super cute design!
- No pocket, runs a little big
