I bought these in the black jacquard and the white. I like the black pair, those for some reason fit me a little better than the white. Both pairs are size XL. The white ones are extremely tighter than the black, so it bummed me out when I put the white ones on. I am on a fitness journey and was hoping these would be my go to workout shorts, but the white ones just don’t fit as well. I would wear the black ones in public because they are acceptable to my standards, however I wouldn’t wear the white out just yet since they are tight and don’t look good. I do like how the inside liner is comfy and fits well, which is good because these fit better when you don’t have any underwear on. I am 5’5” and around 208 pounds. Both shorts are size XL. Not sure if I would buy these again, I feel these are geared more towards the slimmer body types. I may try the leggings and see how those fit next.
I live in Lululemon shorts. These are great. I’m 5’6” and 137 pounds ( thanks Covid), and I got the small white. See pictures. Fits great. No issues. Longer and roomier than lululemon. I wear a 6 in lululemon. Material is soft enough, not as soft as Lululemon but very comfortable. I’m getting more colors!
Love these shorts and ordering 3 more pairs! They fit and are super comfortable. I have a lululemon pair and these are so similar. For reference I am usually a 4 or 6 and ordered a small and they are a perfect fit!
I had eyed up some more expensive workout shorts from a high end athleticwear place but couldn't justify the price since I am not a workout guru. These looked similar so I though I'd give them a whirl.
Fit: I am 5'5" and 136 lbs.- I expected to wear a medium, purchased one and the fit was totally as expected. Inseam is 4" which, on a woman of my age (creeping up on 50) was appreciated- sporty with good coverage but not too mantronly- if you are in your 20s or 30s you may want the more traditional 2.5" inseam.
Look: These look very similar to the shorts I was comparing them to. The have a drawstring at the waist and a hidden pocket in the back. The butt seam is similar to the high end manufacturer as well.
Quality: As one who sees frequently I love the quality of these- they are very well constructed.
What I didn't love: On the real thing the front is a little higher/shorter than the back. As I went for a three mile walk in these I realized why- these didn't quite move in the same way as the front and back are the same length and sewn together together instead if having a breakaway seam. It's not a deal breaker for me but it didn't have feel quite the same.
Overall:.I would totally recommend these and will likely buy another pair in the future.
I have never written a clothing review before, but I am obsessed with these shorts. I’m very short, only 5’ tall, and I have athletic muscular legs. I weigh 115 lbs. I got a size small and they fit great. I am normally an xs or a small, but don’t like my exercise shorts to be super snug, so went with a small. They have a little room in the waist, which I prefer so it’s not squeezing on my love handles, and can adjust them to the desired fit with the waist drawstring. And they are very flattering to my waist and upper thighs.
They are comfortable, dry quickly, don’t ride up, and are very breathable. And the fabric feels like good quality - they definitely look and perform like much more expensive brands.
I’ve had a hard time finding exercise shorts that are comfortable and flattering. So once I found these, I have been hooked! I now have these in 4 colors - the mauve (as pictured), black, melanite, and navy. Don’t hesitate!!! Get these!!!
