I am in love with these shorts. I've been searching for a functional, flattering workout short for about a year with little success. And now these!! The liquid mesh fabric is super cool and the navy is dark enough that I will wear it the same way I would wear black (though I do also intend to get the black soon). The waistband is wide and comfortable and can sit either at one's natural waist or lower around the hips. The leg openings of the shorts are wide enough to allow movement without any feeling of restriction and to leave room to put things in the pockets if one wants to (functional pockets!! huge!!), and the seat isn't too tight!! I have a much smaller waist than I do hips, so that's a big one for me. For reference, I'm 5'7" 125-135lbs and the Small fits perfectly. Thank you, Noli!!!
