But with that said, I think these appear longer on me than they do on the web model below, maybe because she's probably taller than me / has longer legs. Or just different point of view.
Anyway, so I'm actually kind of glad that they are longer than I thought. If they were shorter, they'd probably dig into the inner thigh area and make an unpleasant looking indent. They look look shorter from the back though - here is a close up on me (sorry for the bad pic):
I actually find these shorts very comfortable. There is gripper at the bottom of them so they stay in place very well. I did some running man tests and they did not move at all, like the reviews online say. I'm quite impressed with that. The 2 large side pockets are great, I think I can play tennis with these on and fit tennis balls in the pockets. The faded dot print is pretty subtle unless you look very up close. I would have preferred to order the solid black version, but that one only had size 4 left. But I don't actually mind this print.
Here are the web shots that show closer detail of them:
Kind of a bummer that these are only $10 off regular price of $54. But when I was at the store last time I only saw them on sale in the lilac high noon dot print which I will definitely not wear. I probably missed out on the dark colors. Oh well! I think I can use them enough to make them worth the price. :)
