    Additional Information

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from These ride up almost immediately I love SW and would normally swear by their products but this ride up to where decency is no longer an option. I’ve been half marathon training and although being able to move comfortably over a longer period is more important than the aesthetic I’m still left feeling rather underwhelmed. The fit is great and as I wrote you can run brilliantly in them. But the ride up!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for running in the sun Great print, wash well and dry really quickly. Look great with other colours from the range. Wish the inner shorts were a tiny bit longer but that may just be my chubby legs!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing Shorts These shorts are brilliant. The fit is a little snug so I would size up - they have a drawstring if they're a little loose. I love the back pocket! It even fits my phone in it (11ProMax) the only back pocket I have found fits my phone in... The under shorts are so comfy and stop that inevitable chafing and the over layer is a very nice touch! #teamsweatybetty

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quality not as good as had hoped They aren’t as tight fitting and comfy as I’d expected them to be after being recommended sweaty Betty. Also the customer service wasn’t great when trying to buy the shorts. But they are fine - just not worth the premium price tag.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lovely shorts I was so pleased with my shorts, fabric and shape fantastic , I’m a small in all sweaty Betty leggings , but shorts hung off my waist in small. Ordered extra small sadly out of stock and never came back into stock !! Gutted

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great running shorts Having only taken up running during lockdown, I was a bit hesitant to spend too much on a pair of running shorts. Having taken the plunge I am not disappointed and wish I had bought them earlier. They sculpt your bottom and thighs and are so comfortable.
