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.
They're pretty good quality for the price, but my main concern is that they're really short and ride up your thighs when you're running, and because of them having slits being near the front of your thighs instead of on the sides, they reveal A LOT of thigh. I feel uncomfortable running alone with these on because I feel pretty exposed, to the point where I feel like I definitely need to have my bikini area shaved when wearing them.
As others have mentioned, they are indeed longer in the back, which at least keeps my bottom from showing despite the thigh-revealing situation in the front, but they're quite unflattering; they make my moderately perky butt look like a pancake. I don't mind that for running, but I definitely won't be wearing them to run errands like I do with my more flattering running shorts.
They also sit at an awkward spot; they sit neither on my waist nor hips. It's like they want to be high-waisted because the band rides up that way on the sides, but the crotch area doesn't allow them to go up further? It's a weird situation and I'm not quite sure how to describe it, but I haven't had this happen with my other running shorts.
They run a bit small; I'm 5'5'' and weigh about 105 lb, and ordered a small, but they fit more like an extra small; I think a medium would have been more comfortable. Maybe that would have helped the weird neither-low-nor-high-waisted issue I had; not sure.
I wouldn't recommend these to a friend unless they really couldn't afford to pay $10 more for a better pair and don't mind exposing a lot of skin while running. The only other brands I've tried for running shorts are Adidas and Nike, and both of those feel way more comfortable. I particularly like the Adidas marathon running shorts (haven't tried their other styles), and they often have at least one pair on sale for around $18. That's what I would recommend to friends and to you.
I don't like these at all! I didn't realize they were a low rise, which at my size, is not practical, comfortable, or flattering for working out! You would think if they offered plus sizes, they would that into consideration and increase the rise. They give me horrible muffin top, and ride down as soon as I try to even walk in them. I don't know if it has it in the description and I just missed it, but I did not know that they have weird built-in underwear, which I also don't like. Had they fit properly and I chose to keep them, I would have cut that out. These are definitely going back, though.
It's certainly not shorts weather right now, but I did try it on just to see if it fits and how it feels. It fits just as I thought it would; a good everyday/around the house shorts. This is what I got it for. I have other shorts that I wear outside of the house, but these are the kind of shorts that I like to wear inside the house. Thx!
They tore on me immediately after trying them on!! I should have listened to reviews. I bought a size larger than my regular size so that they’d be roomy and they were, but they still ripped for no reason. I was barely sitting down and hadn’t stretched the fabric so I’m unsure what the problem is, other than very cheap material and sewing. Would NOT reccomend!
I love the fit, length, comfort of these, but they rip on the piping every single time. I have repaired them twice. I wish I could find a pair that fit like these but that are better made. Wish I could return these honestly even though I like them before they rip.
Well worth the $7 I paid! Bought a second pair because I liked them so much. Lightweight, fits as expected, have a key pouch and built in underwear. I like how the back is slightly longer to provide adequate coverage.
Needed a great pair of shorts for running, boating and hiking with summer around the corner wanted to get ahead of this weather. These are a great loose fit. When I tried them on I didn’t want to take them off so comfy. Great price and fit.
