To be fair .. I have some jiggle weight. I am 5'6" and 190. I ordered an XL and it fit well .. except the seam around my thigh which was unforgiving and pulled in too tight leaving a noticable bulge. Personally I just cut the seam to release the tension and now I have a small slit on the side of each leg. I bought these to wear as swim shorts and the quality is very good .. and I think they are a modest length. There are 2 pockets on each side .. one with a zipper and one you can slide your hand into. There is also a draw string in the top of the band .. but it is unneccessary since the high waist is very fitted. I am happy with this purchase. I have bought several pairs of their full length stretch pants .. and Love the Fit and Deep side Pockets for my large screen phone !!
Absolutely love this brand and the addition of zipper pockets is a huge plus. I use these for trips to amusement parks and this saves me from having to buy lockers or wear a runner's belt to protect my items. I'm about 5'2", 135 lbs or so with most of the extra weight in lower belly and thighs. These do a great job controlling the muffin top without being restrictive. The 4 inch shorts can create a bit of a leg bulge, but all the more reason to keep working out before vacation! The pockets fit a large smart phone (Galaxy 10+ with case). Only wish the zipper pocket shorts came in as many colors as the original shorts!
I bought these shorts to take on our trip to Maui and do some paddle boarding. The fit was great! I didn't feel the need to go up or down a size. The pockets came in handy. They didn't weigh me down when wet and dried quickly. The fabric did not fade from the ocean water. All in all, I would say the shorts were perfect for my use.
Theses are well made heavy high waisted shorts. I did not feel like there was much compression though and they tend to fall down. I kickboxing in them and the legs tend to rise up. Maybe I ordered the wrong size? Not sure but they are good enough for me to use.
these shorts are seriously bomb. super great quality material, doesn’t roll up or slide down. isnt see through at all, but still breathable and comfortable. i love these ! i wear them for fashion and to work out in and they’re perfect for all !
