I've been waiting for black biker shorts WITH POCKETS for a long while now. Is it me or is the black not as dark as the past collections?
Okay.. so I have mixed feelings about these shorts. They're a bit of a struggle to put on. They feel tight pulling up & I feel like I might pop a seam, which hasn't happened... yet. The leg portion doesn't roll up but it really hugs my legs/thighs that it curves in (you can see it in the picture attached). The waist band isn't as tight as the leg portion but it does roll down a little. You can kinda see it in the picture attached too. But it rolls back up on its own eventually depending on the workout I do. The pockets are crazy deep.
First, these shorts have two pockets - omg. This may be the main reason I bought them because it's hard to find pockets in compression athletic shorts. That said, I am usually hesitant to buy biker shorts because I have muscular legs. I bought the size that I always get in PopFlex bottoms (XS), but the bottom seams in these shorts are really tight. It was actually difficult to put these on. But, I am worried about sizing up because I think if I size up the waist will be too big. I am very picky about my athletic pants' waist too big because I don't want to have to pull my pants up constantly. These shorts will probably still be good for workouts and won't ride up on my legs (good), but I am not sure if I will be able to wear them for long periods of time. Only time will tell.
I was actually surprised how compressional these are! I can normally wear size L no problem. Although, I don’t regret not getting a larger size because I could still wear these after baby comes. Again, I love the fabric and pockets!
I'm a huge fan of the popflex biker short already, but I couldn't say no to the pockets!! These were perfect for a hike I went on, because I was able to hold my phone and keys without any issue!
I'm normally a L in other brands of leggings and shorts, so according to the sizing guide I'm an XL. The size guide doesn't make me feel good about my body since I'm a "size bigger" with this brand. I love Cassie, I guess just disappointed in the sizing, let alone how this fit. I was looking forward to wearing the black one for my honeymoon at Disney World but the inseam at the thighs are waaay tight and doesn't have a give compared to the Cottage Floral which I got in the same size. It's so tight it feels like it's cutting the circulation around my legs. I'm unsure if I should return or exchange for a larger size (1X 😭) cause I love how the fabric feels on the skin, it's soft and lightweight, but my trip is in less than 2 weeks and don't have the money and time to buy another one. I guess I just had high expectations about this shorts, especially they have pockets and no camel toe situation. I hope the sizing gets improved 🤞🏼
Especially pockets on the side of the leggings or in this case shorts! They are everything!
I have never been happier with biker shorts in my life. These are the most flattering and really sculpt your figure. The material is TO DIE FOR. I would order a pair of these in every color if I could.
Just as a heads up, they are sculpting! So if you don't like a tight fit, make sure to order a size up.
