I’m a long time lover of the 7” Rios and I was hesitant to try the baselines, thinking how could my favorite short get any better? Well, the fabric is silky smooth compared to the Rios, they have all the high waisted goodness I love from the Rios, and surprisingly they don’t get swallowed up by my thighs. This merlot color is gorgeous - love these shorts!

Beautiful merlot color

First time purchasing the baseline short. Beautiful color and my usual size fits good. Love the length and looking forward to new colors and patterns.

Love the 5" length! Can wear a small or medium. Small is more compressive, but neither size rides up.

I think these might be as perfect as a 5” compression short is going to get for me. Only rode up a liiittle bit, and I found that my second run in them, on a hotter day when I was sweatier, they stayed put better. The color is STUNNING. Probably wouldn’t do more than 6 miles in them, because I don’t trust that they wouldn’t chafe, but I love the high waist and multiple pockets. Bought a second pair in black! 5’2”, ~140 lbs, got a medium...wonder if a large would be a little more comfortable, but also wonder if they wouldn’t stay in place as well.

I have so many pairs of these and I love them all! They are the perfect length, perfect fit. The color of the merlot is amazing, it pops great! I feel I can workout and lounge in them comfortably. Size reference 5'5" 135 pounds, 4/6 size pants I bought a small.
