These were just below my belly button and I truly liked the fit. The waist was slightly looser but that was another plus. I can workout in these or just hang out on the couch.
Overall the low rise Rios are pretty good. The low rise is just a little to low for my personal liking.
These shorts were exactly what I was looking for, and are now my new favorites! I have never bought from this company before but was searching for the elusive combo of shorter length, low rise, AND pockets, all for a reasonable price. I chose size medium based on my waist and hip measurements (not on what size pants I wear) and it fits exactly right. The length is perfect to prevent chafing but not be annoyingly long like biker shorts. They stay put for HIIT, weight lifting, walking, and running. I never have to adjust the legs or flip the waist back into place. I specifically wanted low rise because I have a short torso and hate high rise leggings/shorts, but it is so hard to find something that doesn’t cover my entire midsection! These hit just below my belly button, which was exactly what I was looking for. The fabric is high quality. Just the right balance between enough compression and stretch, and not too thin or see-through at all. And the pockets are big enough to hold my large phone without me worrying it will fall out, even while running! My only complaint is that they NEED to come in more colors so I can buy more!
FIt great, don't ride up, love them! Except the seams are tight on the thighs if you have muscular thighs.
I love these. I got them when the high waisted Rios were sold out... and I actually like these better! I’m 5’ and 145 lbs so they hit right above the belly button and they don’t roll down or ride up. I wear M in Senita pants but L in these. I wear them for lifting, running, errands, around the house, they’re amazing!
