To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
So these are legitimately my most favorite shorts and here is why: 1) pockets, not one.. not two.. but THREE whole pockets! On athletic shorts! Who knew this was a thing!? 2) I have a big butt, thicker thighs and a smaller waist so finding shorts is not exactly “easy” and these fit over my butt perfectly, not too tight around my thighs so I can bend/squat/move freely - and they tie at the waist so they won’t come down! (I’m a server so when your hands are full, that’s important!) 3) the length of the short is just right.. I’m too old to be showing my butt cheeks all the time so they are modest without being “grandma-ish” 4) the material is light and airy and there’s no liner on the inside of the shorts 5) they are made with quality in mind and aren’t see through!!
MY ONLY TIP is that they run a little big.. so as I mentioned, big butt and thick thighs, I usually size up but in this case the L was perfect! Initially I ordered an XL and had to exchange them for a L instead and the L fits me PERFECTLY! For reference, I’m 5’7” and 180lbs with a more athletic build (ie more butt and thighs than most!)
These are great shorts. Super comfortable, a great, not too short but not too “mom” length, and pockets that are functional. They’re cool (like, not hot) and adjustable with the drawstring. But they do run a size big. I am a solid size 10-12, and originally ordered the large (like I usually would, because tight shorts are terrible). They’re about a size too big. I tried the mediums and they are perfect. So I would definitely order a size down.
