I was looking for an eye-catching short I could use for performance instead of a black booty short, so I tried these in silver. I am curvy, so I bought the XL, which the sizing said was what would fit. These shorts run very small -- the XL feels more like a medium -- and the fabric is very thin. I have to wear another layer underneath and everything shows through. They are the look I was going for, I just wasn't expecting them to be so small!
