My second pair of the Rio high waisted 7" shorts. These are a no brainer - no chafe, great compression, perfect pockets! These don't fall down or ride up at all on long runs, even with a big cell phone, keys and gu. I haven't run in shorts in years because of chafe but these are a game changer!
Comfy like the rest of the Rios - forest web print is fun!
I like the print on these. I thought they would be my favorite but they have no compression at all. You can see my butt jiggle as I walk. I have the 7in rios in Lux and pine stripe, those fit amazing but this fabric is just too big. It’s seems really loose in my groin area too. I plan to wear them to Barre class or just as lounge wear. They definitely won’t be coming on a run with me.
Evem though I have short legs, these shorts are the most amazing length. They never roll up like the shorter Rios do, and they feel so compressive and supportive. The high waist hits right at my belly button. I went and bought 2 more pairs after wearing this pair!
I wore these shorts to run during the summer and they are super comfortable and just perfect. I love the high waist and it stays up while running. The fabric is so smooth, moisture wicking and all of the pockets are the best. If there was a small zip pocket across the back for keys that would be even better, but the pockets on the sides are deep enough to fit my iPhone XS, keys, gel, metrocard, etc.
