Great material, but for women with bigger buns this…

Rating: rated 3 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new


Great material, but for women with bigger buns this may sit too low.


  • Material is great
  • Liner is great


  • Felt too low in the back

I know they advertise the inseam with this short, but the rise in the back isn't as high as I'd prefer. I'm a 10-12 and this felt like I wanted to pull them up or they'd ride down when running. I really like the material, but for curvy women, this may not be the best fit.
