I purchased these for summer
I haven't worn these yet, because I've purchased them for warmer weather during the black friday sale. However, they laundered well, and the material is a nice weight - not cheapy thin or super thick. I knocked off a star because I haven't actually worn them yet, so I can't say how they will hold up during a workout.
Great biker shorts
Very nice fabric and fit.
Love the feel & POCKETS!
I now have these in shorts, capris and full-length and they are my go-to bottoms for days when I run (M-F) because the pockets are perfect for holding my phone securely. The fabric is comfy-soft with just enough compression/stretch to feel great. (I also wear them for work-from-home, yoga, strength training, and walking the dog … basically all day/most days.)
These fit well and did have nice smoothing and shaping, but have so much compression that I felt like I couldn't breathe. I am not lean, thin, and athletic so these were too constrictive. Excellent quality and construction. For a person with no extra weight in the hips or belly or thighs or waist, these might be very nice. A size up might have been more comfortable.
The ultimate biker short
These shorts are so awesome! I am not a biker short kinda gal, but these really exceeded my expectations on quality, fit, and comfort and WAY more flattering than I would have dared to hope!
