Perfect. As a runner who does not have a typical runner's body i.e., I'm 5'4ish and 155 pounds. I have a lot of trouble finding shorts that are comfortable and don't ride up. Actually, I'd never found another pair until I found these. For me, these fit slightly below the waist (not truly low-rise, but not at the waist either), and the legs are indeed pretty loose, as another reviewer mentioned. For me, as someone who has fairly large thighs and who wants shorts to stay down when I'm running, this is a good thing. The lack of that extra space is exactly why I hate other shorts. The large fits me perfectly, and now it's either these shorts or long compression shorts for any warm-weather athletic activity. I've tried to find other brands that match up to these, but I haven't found anything as good after 4-5 years of searching. I highly recommend them if you are a curvy runner who has a lot of trouble with shorts riding up: while they still do it a little bit every once in a while, it's enormously better compared to any other non-compression shorts. (If you really want shorts not to ride up, get some 5 or 7 compression shorts, but these are a lot more attractive than those, and arguably more comfortable.) I also have a zillion pairs of these just for lounging around.

I found this short to be very unflattering-the waistband cut into my sides while the rest of the short was loose and baggy. I like the fit of the Nike Pacer short so much better.

Great shorts! They magically don't ride up...ever. They dry quickly, they don't make that typical noisy "swooshing" sound, and they look great. I run 3 miles every day, and wouldn't run in anything else!

Love these shorts. We had to have them for band. I ordered one night at 8:00 p.m. and received them the next day before noon. I am not sure if that is the way it always is done but I could not have been happier. I will definitely to ordering from Zappos again!

This is the second of this style I've purchased. I've tried so many different shorts and these were the only ones that fit me well and were completely comfortable. My legs are short and these were the appropriate length.

These are a little bit baggy in the butt, but the liner inside is a good fit. I have a 34" hip measurement, and I bought a small. Other brands of running shorts that I have fit much better. Normally I think Nike products run a little small, so that's why I didn't go with the XS. These aren't my favorite shorts, but I won't be returning them either. They are comfortable and good for running.

I'd also recommend: Brooks, Adidas
