I was so excited to wear these shorts out for a run. I tried them on in the store and wore them around the house for a bit before taking them out. They are super flattering, and I love the soft feel of the fabric. However, as soon as I started even walking, they rode up like crazy. After a mile of running, I might as well have been wearing a bikini bottom. I am 5' 7" 140lb, and I definitely do not have small thighs. I guess I should have known better that these were going to ride up, but they were so cute when I tried them on that I had to give it a shot. Unfortunately, not the right shorts for a girl with tree trunk legs like me.
I love them!
They fit me perfectly. I'm 5'1" with an athletic build. They are super flattering. I only wear them for shorter runs of max 6 miles, I wouldn't take them out for a long run but for easy days, they're awesome. They don't ride up too much on me and I don't have super huge thighs, but they are there. Maybe I just don't notice it too much. I actually went today and bought another pair since spring is on it's way in.

Fast, durable, smooth
I needed to invest in a better pair of tight running shorts that were comfortable and don't slide up as I'm working out. These shorts do the job & they dry fast! I ordered another pair after wearing them so much on the treadmill this winter. I did 8x400s and I had no issues with the shorts. I will most likely race in them too.

I love these shorts so much I bought three of them in different colors. They ride up a little before you heat up but then they stay put. I own many a pair of tight running shorts and these are by far the best, they make you look good.

Looks & Feels Great...
I wish the inseam would be shorter. Maybe somewhere between 1"-2", no more.
I only had to size up for my muscular (big) legs
I would purchase again
Always a great transaction, service & products!
I really had high hopes for these shorts. It's been warm out lately and have wanted shorts for summer instead of my usual capris. After trying a number of "traditional" running shorts that just ride up and give me the diaper effect, I decided to try something tighter in the hopes that maybe they wouldn't ride.
Tried these on in store as well as a half dozen other types. These weren't too short, had a flattering design, and super soft fabric. They passed the jog-in-place-in-the-dressing-room-test and rode up the anticipated amount on the elliptical doing a "hills" workout.
However, when I put them on for a second workout, they had apparently lost all their tightness and instantly rode up just walking. Running was super uncomfortable. Without even washing and minimal wear, I also noticed the reflective striping on the side was coming off. I'm used to this happening in time with wear and washing, but not after an hour and a half of use.
These might work well for someone with thin thighs, someone doing light activity, or someone who doesn't mind them going from boy short to booty short in one wearing. They are super cute. Just need a higher quality of manufacturing and performance for the price.
