Not what I expected
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought these and I have very mixed feelings about these shorts. The waist band is fantastic. It stays in place well, allows for a little extra room and the shorts don't roll. The padding is great!
However, I really hate the bottom of the shorts. The bands around the thigh (at least on me) are so tight that they make my thighs look like cut-off sausages. It is not a very flattering look. They shorts are also a lot longer than I expected. I guess I was hoping something to hit me about mid-thigh, but these are really all the way to just above the knee. While the padding is good and the shorts are functional, they are just not very flattering.
