Found: My New Favorite Running Shorts

In my continuing quest to become a runner, I’ve conquered a number of mental obstacles, but until recently, had yet to figure out the solution to a more tangible challenge: finding running clothes that are comfortable and functional for my big-busted, short, curvy body (not exactly the shape most athletic companies cater to). After finally tracking down my dream sports bra, my next goal was to find a pair of running shorts. The requirements:

  • Thick spandex, because those flimsy nylon running shorts just don’t cut it.
  • Don’t fall down, ride up, pinch, sag, or require any adjustments while running.
  • Don’t make my thighs look like freshly stuffed sausages.
  • Have a zip pocket for my keys, gym ID card, etc.
  • Not too short.

That’s not too much to ask, is it? After buying and trying many different types of running tights, leggings, and shorts with results that ranged from “god, no!” to “meh,” I took Moving Comfort’s 7.5″ Endurance Shorts for a test run (literally), and fell in love. They meet all my requirements and more. Here’s why they’re awesome: Keep reading »

Must Haves: 12 Pairs Of Cold Weather Shorts

A few weeks ago, I wore a pair of wool shorts with tights and boots for the first time. It was a momentous occasion, as I had long held on to the belief that shorts were only for warm summer days and that is it. How wrong I was. Here are 12 pairs of shorts you can totally wear now — with tights and boots — and when the temps start to rise…

Celeb Style Poll: A Short-Shorts Story

Come summertime and we’re all sticking our stems out in the sun (or most of us. Some of us are pale goth queens forevs, which also works). Case in point, Ashley Hart, Diane Kruger, Anna Paquin, Karolina Kurkova and Beyonce were all spotted out and about with some short-shorts on. From jorts to deeply beguiling leather shorts, their looks ran the gamut. But which one’s your fave? [Photos: Fame/Flynet]

Must Haves: 10 Pretty Pairs Of Spring-Ready Shorts

Must Haves: 10 Pairs Of Versatile Fall-Ready Shorts

Ah, don’t you just love that weird in-between-seasons weather when it’s too hot to wear pants and too unpredictable/chance of rain-y to bust out the sundresses? Yeah, me neither. With humidity, precipitation, and grey skies hanging in the air, it’s hard to get excited about leaving the house, let alone putting on the clothes required to do so. That’s where fall shorts (in heavier fabrics and darker colors than your typical summer pair) come in — they’re the best of both worlds! They offer prime leg ventilation while still providing the comfort and wind protection factor (WPF) that skirts can’t, and they can be worn in today’s hyper-humid weather as well as tomorrow’s (maybe) cooler breeze: just add tights! Plus, you can dress ‘em up easily. Check out these ten pairs of fall-ready shorts that have already made their way onto my wishlist…

I haven’t worn non-athletic shorts since my age was in the single digits due to my German heritage and stocky lower body.  I am not overweight by any means; I just have thighs that love to accumulate muscle and that cupcake I ate yesterday! It would expand my summer wardrobe so much if I had some shorts to pair with all my cute tanks. At this point I’ve stopped even trying shorts on in stores because it can just be a dreadful experience, so having some pointers on the best stores to try could help me out a ton. –Short on Shorts

I totally feel you on this. The short-shorts and skinny jeans trends have not been particularly kind to those of us with larger thighs. Finding a style that actually fits is difficult; finding a pair that doesn’t resemble sausage casing is nearly impossible. The key word, though, is nearly. It takes a little extra work, but your short soulmates are out there, I promise. Here are a few tips to help you find them… Keep reading »
