Material is okay. Not as comfy as the stripe or wild ones! Definitely not as high waisted either. Overall a good piece.
Didn't fit him but we tried a XXL and they fit great. Luckily I have a friend that loves senita in this size. So she got a free pair. I love my Rios but the pockets are a little less secure then other pockets, specifically the 3.75 Rios have a smaller pocket. The 7 inch don't have that issue.
The answer is no. I love these shorts. Between the sassy stripes, light material (I’m talking feel not texture - these babies are NOT SEE THRU) and pockets you can run a 5k or a half in these and feel fresh and free! I got these in large for my “athletic,” “y’all” and “curvy” frame and feel like I just can’t have enough pairs of these. My only regret is that the longer pant versions of these are not available in my size anymore.
I have these in three other colors - they stay up, the pockets are bomb, and they are a great length! I bought a medium - I'm 5'3" and about 165lbs. Highly recommend!
My first pair of Rios and I'm in love! They don't budge even on the longest and sweatiest of runs. And the pockets are perfect for holding my handheld water bottle!
