One of the older girls at my studio was quitting dance and brought a huge bag of her old clothes in for us to take. I found these shorts in the bag and really loved them. They are very good at keeping your hips warm without feeling bulky and awkward like a crotch blanket (like a pair of fluffy green ones I received as a gift). They are also VERY stretchy. They are small enough to fit onto my petite hips and bum, yet they also fit one of the curvier girls at my studio. As for durability, I would say 5 stars because the other girl had them for over a year of fairly frequent wear and washing, and they don't have any tears. The only thing is that they are a little bit pill-y. It isn't very noticeable, though.
Finally, I think they are super adorable!! (I have the black and pink) The fact that the background is black means that they don't look obnoxious like the green ones might, yet the pink argyle side detail is really cute and has earned me a couple compliments. I also like that the black is versatile, and looks good with almost all of my leotards, from white to fuchsia and black to lavender.
I would recommend these shorts to anyone who wants knit warm-up shorts that are cute, soft and durable.

I have these shorts and they are so comfy. I wear a white leo and they match perfectly! The only problem is that they ride up a little, so get a bigger size and roll them up! Over all, totally buy these shorts!
