I love these shorts. They’re a perfect length, the color is gorgeous, and for me they don’t ride up. I paired it with a peach bra and it is a cute match. I really appreciate the mix and match color palette of this set.
So I have shorts and leggings from all the collections starting at terrain so I get the evolution from front seam to no seam and moving away from camel toe. But ....now I think we've gone too far and took a turn at men's Wear. :) Lol! In the last collection with no front seam there was a small panel in the crotch that provided a great fit that moved with you. Now I don't know why but there is this new Giant sideways crescent half Moon shape panel sewn in piece going down the inner thighs that is a hop skip and a jump away from boxer shorts. I would imagine these shorts might actually fit men better for cycling than women. There's just too much fabric down there. If you pull them up as they should sit it creates this triangle bulgy bottom crotch with 2 side wedgies in both sides of the groin, but if you pull them down so it doesn't look so obscene than they sag and fall off. There's just no good way of these fitting. Because I love the bras of this collection and the colors I'm going to keep them only for exercising at home, but there is no way I could go outside in these. It's literally like wearing boxer shorts around the house. Can we please go back to when things were on track in the last collection and get rid of the giant crotch panel?
The performance level is definitely studio or below. I would consider Kettlebell swings moderate intensity, not quite high intensity, yet I got a camel toe after that work out. The legs rolled up a little and the waist rolled down a little. Would I buy them again? Maybe, but I'll probably try NOBULL shorts next. These are comfortable for walks and running errands, not exactly the best for a hard workout.
I ordered these in navy and loved them so much after one wear that I knew I needed them in a second color. I ordered a second pair in matcha and love the green! Both colors are gorgeous. I didn't have any major issues with them rolling up or down. I did notice the legs inches up a little bit when I got REALLY sweaty. No camel toe (as promised), and they're squat proof too! Absolutely love the fit (just wish they had side pockets).
So why only 4 stars? I happen to be a sweaty gal. The navy shorts are dark enough that I didn't have any issues with sweat showing. However, when I wore the matcha shorts to teach a Zumba® class last night, the sweat showed so bad that halfway through the class it already looked like I had peed myself XD
So, as a precaution, I will only be wearing the matcha shorts when I am doing a workout at home, or teaching a dance class and am wearing a leotard as an extra sweat barrier. If you are also someone who tends to be on the sweatier side, opt for the navy or maybe the green rose to hide the sweat, especially if you're working out outside of your house.
Absolutely fantastic! Color is fab, the size fits perfectly! It outlines me in a way that makes me feel really confident. It doesn't roll much, minimal adjustments needed. Fabric feels really cool. No Camel -toe!!! 🎉 My only nit-pick is that my underwear lines show throw which I didn't think would happen. But I'll get used to it, it'll be okay for me. Other than that, in love!! 😍
