Extremely comfortable and wearable running shorts
Really impressed by fit and quality of material. Wish they came in a variety of colours and I would buy more.

Loose shorts that don't ruck up
Firstly, I admit, I bought these because of the name. I am attempting to run the London marathon in 2 weeks' time and I am not going to be one to fail for want of The Right Kit.
Secondly I bought them because all the capri pants I tried on (from SB) were of super lightweight material and, basically, made me look fat in the thighs and bum. These are nice and loose and my legs look thinner than they are sticking out of the bottom of them.
I have spent all winter 'training' (in the slowest sense of the word) in SB compression tights (exhausting to get on, but super-streamlining), and when I put these shorts on after those, I feel my legs are going to float away. It's a bit like one of those nightmares where you think that you've gone outside without your clothes on. To the extent that on a long (15m run) my calves were on the verge of cramping, so I've now invested in a pair of calf-supports (compression socks without the feet), and I think I might get a really solid pair of knickers to reassure myself that my bum/tummy are firmly held in.
But if you DON'T want to be aware of what you're wearing, these are the shorts for you.
Obviously they're beautifully made, and have a nice wide waistband. As per the title they don't ruck up between your thighs (a big no no). I'm a size 10-12 (veering on the 12 as I seem to have put on more weight marathon training than losing it) and I got a medium. The small size did fit, but felt cosier (maybe in retrospect this is what I needed?).
The only downsides are the pockets. There are two side pockets, which hold jelly beans comfortably without them jigging out, though a tissue worked its way out, and it'd be much better if they had a small velcro closure or similar just to ensure whatever you put in, stays in. The pocket at the back is v small and unzipped. Would work for a tissue, maybe a gel, but not for an iPhone or any similar bit of metal gadgetry (which would probably be heavy enough to pull the shorts down, thus bringing the no-clothes nightmare to life).
But a lovely pair of shorts, and definitely far superior to anything else I'd seen.

Fantastic shorts- very flattering, super comfy and don't ride up inbetween the legs

Great fit and feel shorts
These are just lovely. Fantastic fit but look great as well. I was concerned the ends of the ribbon drawstring might be irritating, but I haven't noticed them at all. Nice and airy without flapping around like some traditional running shorts.

My new favourite running shorts!
I bought these after running in my old capris which keep slipping down, resulting in me having to hoik them up mid-run each time (so annoying!)
Once on, these didn't need re-arrangement once, kept me cool, and washed beautifully.
I'm a convert.

Love these shorts
I've been searching for a good looking, great fitting & comfortable short THAT HAD POCKETS!!! Like real pockets & not these little things they stick inside running shorts that will hold a phone comfortably. Love these shorts. My only downside is the price point. Expensive in my book.

marathon run shorts, black
Comfortable, stylish, useful pocket, drawstring waist. Wish it came in other colours at it's so easy to wear and versatile. Kept me really cool and provided just the right balance of cover and 'air flow'!

These shorts are great. I love the loose fit around the leg and they don't rise up or slip down. Perfect for outdoor running,
