Love the color of these swift shorts!
I ordered navy polka dot in medium, which is where I fall on the new sizing chart. I wear size medium in leggings but large in baselines (yes, in the new sizing as well) because medium is too tight around my thighs. But I had read that the tight shorts in the swifts aren't as tight so I went with medium and they fit perfectly! And I love them. These are my first pair of double-layer shorts. I will most likely order swift 2s in another color in the future.
These are my go to shorts. They could be better as I am constantly having to pull down the liner - this is worse in the new sizing, but I like the length.
As good as it gets
I ordered these a few days ago, received them yesterday (which is quite an accomplishment, since I live in Poland!) and ran 5mi in them this morning. I think this is as good as it gets for me as far as running shorts. I'm 5'10" with a 27" waist and 39.5" hips and ordered a Medium. I love the higher rise and extra length (a low-rise pair of shorts with a 2" inseam looks like a diaper on me), and the drawstring allowed me to cinch the waist to fit. The liner isn't compressive, so my phone slapped against my hip in the side-pocket, but my keys didn't bounce around or feel like a distraction. The liner rode up a little, but it stayed in place *much* better than many of the other 2-in-1s I've tried. I maybe could size down to a Small (and if I'd looked at the size chart, that's what I'd have gone with). But all-in-all, this is the best pair of running shorts in my wardrobe for sure.
Poppy runs smaller
Generally I like the Swift 2s, but the poppy is smaller than the others.
