Not a perfect fit for tall and curvy runners
on April 3, 2015
Tall curvy runners, be careful. I'm 5'11", hourglass shaped, with a relatively big rear/hips, and a bit of a belly. I bought these in an XL with another pair of spandex for running. The fit is a bit strange on me -- the waist falls across the widest part of my belly unless I pull them up extra high, in which case they pull a bit across my belly and ride up in the front. If I wear them lower, under my belly, then there's extra fabric that bunches awkwardly in the crotch. The length of the legs is pretty short -- I have long legs, but I'd never wear these without a layer underneath. Having said that, the waist is pretty loose, and the tie only does a moderate job of addressing that problem. In short, they're simultaneously too big in some areas and too small in others with an awkwardly placed waist. Clearly I'm in the minority here, but if you're built tall and curvy like me, you may have fit problems with these shorts.
