I like the extra length in these compared to the typical running shorts that would otherwise show off the cheekies. I'm 6'2, 145lbs, 27" waist, 40" hips, and the medium/ large fit great. Didn't realize it came with a built in panty, but I guess that's cool.

I LOVE these shorts. I bought them for a costume and they were perfect. I wear them all the time. I’m 5’5 177 lbs and bought a size large and they came up to my belly button yet low enough on my leg to cover everything and more. Super comfortable comparable to Nike shorts!

I've been searching everywhere for a reasonable, non-provocative workout short that i'm comfortable in. I have a substantial butt and an hour glass shape and mid-rise shorts always look and feel so weird. These sit above the waist at my belly button, and the extra length on the back of the shorts cover my but. I feel like this is how everyone else looks and feels in those classic Nike shorts!

Will attach a picture the meantime, I'm 5'2", ~130lbs, ordered a medium and they fit great in waist and length. Will order in more colors for sure. SO glad these showed up in my search algorithm!

Ordered these because I needed lightweight shorts for hiking and working out. These are perfect! Slightly high waisted, covers butt completely while squatting. For reference, I am 5’5, 115 lbs and an XS fit me perfectly.

I had to order a couple pairs of shorts for physical therapy, and tried a longer pair in cotton knit, and these. Both were very well made, these particularly so. They're shorter than the cotton ones, but not to the point of immodesty, and the sizing was perfect. These have more of a nylon feel to them, and they're remarkably sturdy. Though I always hang to dry, never stressing Chinese clothes, they've done very well, haven't torn or shrunk. I'm quite happy with them.

Just a warning but these shorts don't have the best sewing on the inside. When I used them for a run I got a sore on the inside of my inner thighs where the seam was. Maybe that's a sign I should lose weight so they don't rub...but I have other shorts of the same type that don't do this so I can only say it was the seam not sewed together properly. I did keep them but will only wear them when l have biker shorts on under them.

Seeing how Summer weather is upon us on the west coast, I bought these shorts to go for runs in. I ended up going one size up from what I thought I needed (Large instead of Medium), since I have thicker thighs and like the extra space.
From a quality and assembly point of view, these shorts were excellent! They seemed to be made well, the fabric was soft and breathed well enough for my uses; the only issue I encountered (and the ultimate reason why I returned them) is that the white piping around the bottom of the leg holes has some stitching in the crotch region and is seamed on the inseam part of the short, almost like they used two pieces of piping around the leg-hole, and stitched it in the crotch and outside leg parts of these shorts. This is peculiar since other brands simply use one piece of piping and extend it all the way around the leg-hole, seaming it on the outside (less likely to rub) part of the leg. What this means is that if you go for a run in these shorts, there are teeny tiny 1/4" flaps of fabric that will chafe the sensitive skin high up in your upper thigh-crotch-leg region if/when the shorts ride up from normal movement. Anti-chafe sticks won't do anything to help in this situation, it's just a very painful side-effect of wearing these shorts when going for a run.

Honestly, the chafe was what prompted me to give these one star, I cannot recommend clothing that causes injury.

Not good. Even at 124lbs these made me look like a dumpy old fuddy duddy.
I wouldn't buy these for my grandma.

Love these shorts but if you’re a medium (and plan on losing no weight) I would defiantly size up cause they fit kinda snug, I’m on a weight loss journey cause I’ve gained the Quarantine 15 so they will fit better when I lose that hehe. They fit on my rather plump bottom lol but The front of the shorts is tight. Good to see these are kinda high waisted so they do cover your midsection instead of sitting on hips. Other wise I’m very happy :)

11 year old loves these shorts. Fit nice and great quality

Fit well
