Track Fan Shorts
When the temps heat up, sometimes we want running shorts with a little less running. A pair of shorts for strolling and standing and going about a warm weather life. And so we made the Track Fan Shorts. Made from our Roga stretch woven, they're designed for leisure. The front is flat and flattering, with no elastic in the front panel. The sides and rear are gently elasticized. At the sides, are two large pockets, perfect for a phone, keys, snacks, what have you. Bonus: Roga fabrics are swass busters. Just like our running shorts, sweat is dispersed and not visible. Function is fashion!
Size and Fit
I was looking forward to these shorts. As someone who is almost 5'1", I have the hardest time finding shorts that aren't too long. These were the perfect length for me (yay!) but unfortunately, the waist was too big (dang). I think I could have made them work if there was a drawstring or the elastic was stronger. For context, I'm 102 lbs and ordered a size 2. I hesitated to return them, thinking the waistline gap wouldn't bother me that much, but every time I put them on, it did. So back they go and my quest for the perfect short continues.
I absolutely love these shorts! I wear them for everything except running. I'm sure you could run in them but I prefer a shorter short with liner for running . I didn't buy them for running anyway. I always get too hot and sweaty in non athletic shorts but don't like the look of athletic shorts for non running activities. Enter the track fan short! You can dress them up or down, look just as cute with a flowy blouse as they do with a tank top and they are so comfy! If you love the feel of athletic shorts but don't like the look of them for all occasions,these are the shorts for you! For reference, I am 5' 4" and weigh about 115lbs. Size 2 was perfect fit.
I wear these shorts with the matching print in the AVIARY HALF ZIP TANK. Together, they make such a cute set!.
2021 has been quite the doozy of a year for me. After being misdiagnosed for a condition that has been plaguing me for YEARS, I finally received the correct diagnosis and treatment my body so badly needed. While I can feel the improvements in my health, the new medication I have been taking has caused one uncomfortable and unsightly side effect: terrible abdominal bloat. And finding a comfortable pair of shorts to cover up this bloat has not been fun. But I can say with confidence that these Track Fan shorts are exactly what I need. I can even say with confidence that these Track Fan shorts will continue to be exactly what I need once I am done with treatment and my body returns back to its normal size. I have these in PNW and the color is gorgeous! Now I just have to decide which color to buy next...decisions, decisions.
