I bought 2 pair of running shorts from this company to see which ones were better. These shorts are cute and thin. However they are terrible running shorts. I wore them yesterday for a short 7 mile run and they were constantly riding all the way up my legs. There needs to be more elastic at the bottom of the thighs to keep them down. :( The riding up was miserable as I was trying to pull them down the entire run.
Spend your money on the long pocket jogging shorts. They are awesome and do not move at all. I hate when I waste money.
I have never been able to wear tight fitting shorts. I have muscular thighs and they always ride up and give me "sausage legs" I am training for my first ultra was having some issues with chafing. I bought these hoping they would be different, and they are! I took a chance and wore them for the first time on a 13 mile run yesterday and they were so great I wore them again the today for 23 miles. They run a little big, but are very comfortable and NO chafing. They are really light and were the only thing that was dry when I finished. They rode up a little after 20 miles but very minor and I will be wearing these a ton going forward.
Agreed to try compression shorts after losing all my groin skin in a 70.5 running race. My coach suggested these but I resisted because I have a small waist but am very "hippy". Now I have two pairs! They are very lightweight and even if the hem moves up a little it doesn't bother me. Also, the key is they are COMPLETELY seamless especially the waist band so I don't get any chafing. They also don't look too long which I was worried would be less attractive on me. 5'6.5" and 130 lbs and small size is good.
I've never been able to wear shorts for running. Even with all the Bodyglide in the world, I couldn't deal with my thighs rubbing. Finally, shorts I can wear!! These stay put - they don't ride up in the front and they are long enough to prevent thigh rub. I'm 5'6" and about 150lbs. I originally ordered a medium, but returned them for a small. They seem to be a bit big.
I love these shorts so much. I was skeptical of them not having any "grippy stuff" (technical term) on the inside to keep them from riding up but they don't ride!!! This summer humidity is NO JOKE and these shorts stay put, don't chafe and are seriously awesome. I want to try them in the blue but worry how they will look with sweat marks? They've been amazing for my long runs while marathon training-- they might even be my race shorts come fall.
I was very optimistic about these shorts because they received so many positive reviews, however my experience was entirely different. First I will list the things I do like, the fabric is soft and feels very comfortable on the skin. They are light weight and good for got weather. Now, the cons... First, fit. They run large. According to the size chart, I should be a small. I purchased a small and there is extra fabric in the crotch and waistband. It meant that the shorts either felt like they were falling down, or I had to hike them up, which made them shorter on the legs, which is exactly what I didn't want. I purchased the long version to have more thigh coverage to prevent chaffing. Next, they ride up. They don't ride all the way up and become booty shorts, but they ride up enough that I chaffed very badly on my 30 mile run. I do not recommend them, unless you are able to try them on in a store first. Very disappointed.
These shorts are wonderful. They are so soft and do not bunch. I wore them for a trail marathon and many long runs this summer. The fabric is wonderful. The medium was slightly large on me but I just rolled the top down and they worked perfectly. I'm 5'5'' and just over 130lbs. The length is perfect. Not too short and not too long.
Like so many others, I think I've tried just about every kind of shorts out there in the search for something that didn't ride up, didn't chafe or bunch, and was comfortable for long distances. I had given up ever being able to run a marathon in shorts (I usually wear capris) until I found these. I love them so much. Please don't ever discontinue these!
I'm 5'6" and around 130 pounds and the small works well. The medium also works.
