Crisscross Hourglass Shortie with Pockets - Duck Egg
Think Crisscross Hourglass Biker Short, just a little shorter. The Shortie has all of the necessities like pockets, an anti-cameltoe design, our popular hourglass crossover waistband, and thigh grippies to keep your shorts from riding up.

So I think the duck egg combo is probably my favorite set as of yet. I don’t normally buy any shorts that aren’t black/dark because I sweat so much, but the bra was too cute to not get the matching bottoms. I bought a size small which is what I normally get for (most) leggings, but I found it to be a bit too small for these shorts. The waist was perfect but the thighs is what got me. I think because of that reason it rolls up and the grippies don’t work which is sad, but I’m not too torn about. The only thing I will have to say is that when it rolls up, it gets too short for wear out of the house but *especially* if I haven’t been waxed recently lol. For reference I’m 5’2” 125 lbs 34 in chest 27 in waist and 37 in hips!
I love the colour of these shorts as well as the design. I’m a big fan of the original black shorties, and wanted to get more of the newer designs.
The shorts are BEAUTIFUL, the colour is just like in the pictures, and the fabric is so soft.
I think for these newer collections, you should consider sizing up; I thought maybe I just didn’t know my own size anymore, but I compared these shorts to my other leggings and shorts, and these ones are smaller than the others. Unfortunately, these didn’t fit as well as my other ones. Like other reviews have mentioned, these shorts are see through, so it’s not squat proof like mentioned. For me personally they were more see through even without squatting, but I think that’s because I ordered the wrong size too.
I really wanted to love these like I love the matching bra but I just don't. They're very see through, they actually give me a camel toe more than other shorts, and the v-shaped waist didn't look right on my body. That said, they're super soft and comfortable! For other bodies, they might be great. Just don't try to wear underwear any darker than your skin tone underneath or they'll show straight through.
The duck egg color is so so so so beautiful. I love it so much! Such a nice color going into Spring and Summer months. I love the silicone grips at the bottom of the shorts. It really helps the shorts stay in place so I don't have to pull them down so often like I do my old ones. The material is nice, soft, and has a lightness to them.
These shorts are super comfy and fit great, but they are see through. I cannot wear dark underwear with them. Also, after the first wash, a lot of the original color was washed out, so they look more white and faded rather than baby blue. The shorts also ride up when running, the grips do not do as much as I had hoped. I have owned many of popflex's workout clothing and loved them, but I was disappointed in these. I love the color and style, however, so they do get points for that.
