Layer 8 High-Performance Shorts (For Women)
Closeouts. A workout essential, Layer 8's high-performance shorts are designed with four-way stretch and gusseted inseam to let you move freely and comfortably as you run, jump, twist and bend. The moisture-wicking knit fabric dries quickly to keep you cool, and the wide elastic waistband provides a secure, non-binding fit.
Reviewed by Amanda from California on Sunday, July 31, 2016I pretty much agree with everything that the other reviewers wrote here. The length is perfect, these are comfortable, the quality is good, I like the colors, the material feels nice. BUT, these are pretty transparent. I sized up to the medium because I read the review about the transparency issue. I'm glad that I did that because they become more transparent when the fabric is stretched. I got these specifically for indoor rock climbing because it has been so hot recently. I will just have to make sure that I'm wearing underwear with excellent coverage when I wear these because whoever is belaying me will be starting at my behind.
Anyhow, the transparency issue isn't *terrible*, but if you're a shy person, you may want to avoid these. I have yet to wear these out of my house, so if it becomes an issue, I guess they'll just become pajamas.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by LW from Colorado on Sunday, June 12, 2016I have a hard time finding shorts like this that are long enough not to make me look lumpy, not so long as to make me look frumpy, and don't ride up. These hit the sweet spot for me. And the color is a nice change from my usual black/grey.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Regn from Alabama on Tuesday, May 31, 2016Unlike the matching bra top, these are only a single layer of lycra. They are completely see-through, so much so that it is comical. I'm planning to wear dark underwear and stick to my hot yoga classes in a dimly lit room. But beware if you plan to wear them out on the gym floor or in public or whatever.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Chilly Girl from Wisconsin on Monday, May 9, 2016Bought the tops and bottoms in two colors, plan to wear them at the beach. It's nice that you can order them in different sizes if needed. Super cute!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Montana Momma from Montana on Thursday, April 7, 2016Great for yoga. Not too tight on the legs so they don't ride up.
