Rated5out of5byChiGirlfromMuffintop-free shortsSince purchasing these shorts about three months ago, I've completely abandoned my other running shorts and capris. These super comfortable and flattering shorts have a wide, soft waistband that eliminates muffintops yet still holds on tight. (I've owned other wide waistband running shorts that relied on a tie string, which would loosen during the run, and had to constantly be pulled up.) The rubber grip on the undershorts is totally unnoticeable once you get the legs situated where you want them. Breathable fabric, no visible wear so far. Can't recommend more highly.

Rated5out of5byOjai flyerfromLove these shortsI don't particularly like to wear short shorts, but it is nearly impossible to find running shorts that aren't. These shorts have a flattering fit and are very comfortable. I was skeptical that the rubbery banded undershort wasn't going to chafe on a long run, but it doesn't. I have run half-marathons in them and they are as comfortable at the finish as at the start. I liked them so much that I bought a second pair, and I also have the skort. My only complaint is that the two waistband pockets are extremely small, and hard to access while running. The side pocket on the leg of the undershort is handy for a phone, money, tissue, etc. I wish there was one on the other leg. I can't really evaluate their durability yet, but I religiously wash them only in cold water, and machine dry on low setting, and so far (about 15 washes) they still look and feel like new.

Rated5out of5byJ-girlfromFor real runners!These shorts are truly a standout purchase. I am relatively short with large leg muscles, and a distance runner, so shorts that cover the area between my thighs are important. These prevent chafing with the inner short, without feeling too hot. The sticky band along the bottom of the inner shorts holds them in place really well, even when sweaty, preventing the constant readjustment game that nobody wants to play 20 miles in. These have held up well and dry really quickly (I always hang dry them). There are no annoying zippers or anything to rub on a backpack or hip hydration pack. Great shorts!
