Here I am rocking the Roga's:
Not only cool and lightweight, but flattering and comfortable!
Here they are again. (Actually, this is really
just a gratuitous photo of KoB).
So, while I love the Roga's, I'm still a girl and I love clothes and shopping and looking as good as I possibly can, so I'm always keeping my eye out for the next latest, greatest thing. And Friday afternoon, I found it:
Meet my new favorite shorts obsession: Sun Sprinter Short
Now, I've tried Lululemon shorts in the past and on my body... they were just never flattering enough to fork over $50+ for. But, these seemed different than their other running shorts:
1. They have a higher rise than the other lululemon shorts.
2. They have no built in liner.
This sounded promising enough for me to leave work a little early on Friday and head to Lululemon (which, incidentally, I HATE going to Lululemon. The sales staff is so goddamn saccharine that I just want to barf all over the place the whole time I'm in there). They had a small rack with like 4 pairs on it and a couple of black pairs in my size, which I quickly snatched up. I tried them on and while my regular lululemon size felt a little big, it was nothing that a big ole yank of the drawstring couldn't fix.
And not only did they feel good on... they were pretty darn cute, too!
Cute little lacy side vents! Swoon!
But the true test would be... how would they feel on a 14 mile run in the swampy Nashville heat? I am happy to report, they were awesome! I loved the higher rise and the waistband sat very comfortably against my body. I was afraid that without a liner that I'd have to keep pulling the shorts out of my ass crack, but I had no issues with that, and my lower half felt so much cooler and lighter without a liner getting all sweaty and gross! Win!
I'm going to order another pair in the smaller size to see how they fit, and there's really only question left...
Do I dare try out the white/purple combination????
