I was never the type of person to wear shorts while working out. I am 5'4" with muscular legs and glutes; most shorts would ride up on me while I was lifting. I decided to give these a try after some encouragement from my husband. I am so glad that I took a chance on these shorts! They are comfortable, have a flattering fit, and are long enough to keep me covered. I loved them so much that I went ahead and bought the other pair of Cadence shorts in Aquastone. If you are looking for the next staple in your workout wardrobe, these shorts are it!
