To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not 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.
I’m a size 12-14, so bought these in a L. Seemed to fit nicely as I tried them on inside.
But when it comes to running in them, they are utterly useless.
Within 300 m of starting running, the inside leg was...well, no longer inside my leg but bunched up around the gusset.
20 minutes later and I had to stop running because where the shorts had vanished from twixt my legs, the tops of my thighs had been slowly abrading themselves and it just got too painful to run any more.
To make matters worse, on the rare occasion that the inside leg of the shorts did fall into place on the inside of my leg (rather than their default “padded gusset” position), the inside seams on the shorts are bulky and sewn with really quite rough thread, and so adding to the chafing nightmare.
So these are great shorts if your thighs don’t touch.
However, if like me and many other women, your thighs do touch and you’re not prepared to run around greased up like a Christmas turkey, then I would avoid avoid avoid. My shorts have gone straight in the bin, and I’m just left with two red raw thighs to show for it.
I wasnt sure when I first wore these how they would adapt. They looked a bit tight and tend to sit below my stomach ( for those who have a roll). Surprised how well they felt when doing a run/walk and a pilates stretch session and enabled full movement without any discomfort. I wear a top over the shorts for a better look as a larger lady ( size 16)
Love these shorts! Very attractive and comfortable. Waistband is think and lays flat, so no digging in. Adjustable inside drawstring. Inner liner lightweight and so comfortable I barely feel it. I have been wearing these for track workouts and am very happy with them.
