If I could have drawn up a pair of yoga shorts, I would have come up with something like these. Just handling the shorts, you can tell they're well made --they're substantial but not heavy. They breathe well. They're sleek and form-fitting -- this is important when you're flowing and doing inversions, etc. -- but not too tight. The length is just right. Five stars.
These are very comfortable, inner lining is supportive. I like the looks and have had compliments. Highly recommended!
I've tried a number of shorts, and these are a clear standout. I now have four pair.
Unrestricted movement, excellent fabric "weight" (not too flimsy, not too heavy), good length and coverage, secure waistband, very little movement/riding up of the interior liner during a practice. No distractions.
My waist size is 31, normally I go with medium but here small is the ideal fit for me. My humble advice: Ignore the opprobrium toxic masculinity places on the size "small." Go with the size that fits you.
Although I am newer to yoga, I have learned that in a hot yoga class ever advantage helps. These shorts are a clear advantage for comfort and flexibility. I definitely recommend them.
I use these shorts for yoga and Pilates. The fabric, inner brief, length, amount of leg opening, all reflect a design intended to facilitate our practice with comfort and ease. Many thanks!
