I love a good multi-purpose comfortable short!

I’m always looking for different types of shorts to workout in. I tend to wear loose polyester running shorts. Occasionally, on longer runs, I experience chafing as a result of this type of short (and forgetting to apply body gilde!). I decided to give these well rounded shorts a try.
When I took them out of the box they were so tiny that I thought there was no way they would fit me. They are tiny little shorts when not on you. I put them on and couldn’t believe how soft they were. It’s definitely something that feels good against your skin. The 4.5" inseam is long enough that I did not experience any chafing.
I am glad I went with black; I have heard some reports of some of the lighter colors being more sheer. I’m happy to report I didn’t have any trouble with that. Zensah has stated that these were originally developed to be worn without undergarments, so that choice is up to your comfort level.
Here are the product specs:
The material is ridiculously soft. The shorts are so comfortable that I almost feel like I’m lounging around in my pajamas.
Ok now it was time to put them to the run test. I ran several times in these shorts, anywhere from 3-7 miles each time. I also did weight training and went out for a walk in them. I didn’t have any trouble with them riding up. And because they are spandex and have a snug fit, you feel like everything is nice and sucked in, but at the same time you are free to MOVE!
Another great use for these (at least for me) is to wear them under my Sparkle Skirts for races! I need more shorts like this that don’t ride up and are super comfy. How cute is this?
Bottom line, I really like these shorts and will wear them regularly for running or anything, really. My only wish is that there was a pocket. Really, really important for running! They retail for $41.99, but check out this great discount!
