    Please make these shorts 1 inch longer! I have searched for the perfect shorter compression running shorts for awhile and these are the best I have tried on. The waist band on these are great and do not give a muffin top look when you wear a fitted top with them. They ride up when running, so I think 1 inch longer would really make a difference and be more flattering.

    I use these shorts solely for bikram yoga. They're short and allow ease in movement. My only complaint is that they run a little small. I had to clandestinely fix the evil assault on my lady parts between most postures. I have thicker thighs for my size (I usually wear a 6) and bought a medium. The large might have fit better.

        Comments about DriLayer® Power 88% polyester / 12% spandex 4" Compression Short:

        Some women can wear 2-3" compression shorts and look great--I am not one of those women. I'm 5'4, 110lbs, longer legs, petite torso area. All of my run shorts are 4" inches in length but the cut and loose fit renders them more modest looking than these. I toyed with the idea of ordering the 7" shorts but I'd really like a shorter short to get some color/sunshine on legs. 5" would be the ideal length for me. Keeping these, but if I were to order again, I'd try the longer shorts unless MC come out with 5" shorts.

            I found them just a hair too tight and short (I'm 5'8" and 130 lbs.). I like the longer compression shorts better.

                This does not look like the photo. The inseam was MAYBE one inch. Total booty shorts. The fabric was so thin you could see the "tag" through the fabric. Definitely went back.

                  I hesitated to get these shorts. I don't like compression shorts that bind around the waist and ride up my thighs as I progress through my workouts. The shorts are GREAT! I need to get a couple more.

                    A 4 inch inseam is just a bit short to go over the largest part of my thighs. I would not wear them for running but they are good for the gym esp if I am wearing a skirt over the top. The are very flattering for my backside but too short to be really useful.

                      You know how some short shorts end up looking like really uncomfortable, oversized underwear? These are not those shorts! They stay put, and they are the perfect length. The waist is perfect height, and the waistband is very comfortable.

                      I love the bright blue color and the sale price. I wear these exclusively to bikram yoga and not for running as i feel like the material is a bit thin for real compression and a tad bit too tight and while they don't ride up in yoga i feel like they would in running.
