So, funny story--when I bought these, I was buying them as a present for my sister-in-law who loves to workout, and as I suspected she would, she absolutely LOVED them, and since then has been almost as obsessed with Born Primitive as I am. About a month later at Christmas, I opened her gift to me and what did I find? These very shorts! So I can actually say firsthand that these are amazing. They are soft and comfy for hanging out in, and yet also perfect for a workout! They stay put, and they don't even leave marks while doing so! Big fan of this length, too. Love, love, LOVE these shorts. Just a note--I did purchase a size small, because that's what my sis-in-law wears. But I wear a medium, which is what she got for me. Just wanted to clarify because I know the size I purchased shows up in the review.
