I'm usually hesitant to purchase tight shorts because I have a pear shape and a booty and they usually end up riding up and showing my cheeks (not a good look!). These shorts are the first I've ever worn where I can actually stretch and go running comfortably without the inconvenience of constantly fixing my pants! The pattern doesn't stretch much on my frame; it just depends on how I'm stretching. The pockets are a MAJOR plus since I run on hiking trails and am always paranoid about my phone falling into a river. They fit true to size and I'm 5'5" and a size 8. Great shorts, Cassie!
I love the look of these and the dual pocket is a WIN. I saw a recommendation to size up so I did, but the pattern on the Dark Bloom shorts whites out when you bend in any way (or if you have booty) - so these are not squat friendly - they are not see through, but you lose the pattern entirely which sucks because it's so cute when not stretched. I will be using these for cardio and upper body days :)
Just received these in the mail last week. Love the feel of them. I used the size chart and they fit well. The pattern does seem to go a little thin around my thighs and butt where it stretches the most but you can't see through it. I was looking for something tight with pockets to run in, but these rode up my legs so bad I had to keep pulling them down so my thighs wouldn't chafe. They are otherwise very comfy and are perfect for yoga/pilates. Would buy again for those uses, but I ended up going and buying running shorts that weren't nearly as flattering.
I followed the size guide and bought a size 8 and they fit perfectly. I do get a wedgie however during my pop workouts. The pocket on the side is great. My iphone fits so well inside that I forget that its there. It fits so well in fact, that it has yet to fall out, even when I am top roping up a 4 story wall. I am looking forward to buy another pair once Cassey drops a new clothing line (hint*...no pressure Cassey)
I decided for size 8 following the size guide. I was worried about the size, when i was ordering these shorts, i usually have troubles with shorts and leggins, because they don´t fit me at some parts of my body. But i am so happy this wasn´t that case. I fell in love with the shorts at first sight and first wear. They fits perfectly! And i am also glad about the pockets :) I was also surprised by the delivery time. I am from Czech republic and it took only one week to deliver this wonderfull piece from the United states to my hometown. I am so happy and already thinking about my next order! Thank you so much Cassey!
