    Find your perfect center of balance.

    Not that a pair of shorts are going to make you automatically achieve perfect balance, but they certainly aren't going to hurt, especially if those shorts are the Patagonia Women's Centered Shorts. Great for Bikram yoga or hot days on the beach, these shorts feature a compressive fit and a fabric that wicks moisture and dries quickly. A wide waistband makes for a flattering fit, and their contoured side seams follow the shape of your legs for an even more comfortable feel.

    Great to wear under skirts or in surf

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I wear these shorts every week under dresses and skirts for a bit more warmth, structure, and the pocket. They have a high enough waistband to keep everything smooth and "pulled together" without underwear lines and have a great hidden pocket big enough for keys and a 5s phone (laying on its side) but not closable for surfing or hanging upside down.
    The inseam is too short for me to feel comfortable wearing these on their own in town, but perfect to wear as board shorts (think Central America, not California cold surf).

    Hiked in these all summer.

    These shorts are great for hiking. They are very comfortable, lightweight, and dry quickly. So far, they still look great and haven't pilled or started to show wear. I have used PrAna Audrey shorts in the past for hiking, but they do not wick moisture nor dry as quickly as these. The PrAna shorts also tend to ride up during activity, but this wasn't an issue with these shorts. I wish they made more colors!

    Summer staple.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Size Bought: Small

    The fabric of these shorts is soooo comfortable, light, and breathable, and isn't see through in the slightest. The wide waist band is super comfortable, and I love the heathered print. If you're sweating a lot (like in hot yoga classes) the legs stay put and are a great length, but unless there's some moisture on my skin, the legs definitely rode up on me and turned into underwear regardless of size (I tried S and M). If you're getting sweaty or just lounging around the house, I'd recommend them, but otherwise, I'd say beware of the ride-up factor!

    Beautiful, practical, useful!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium and Large

    I tried the Medium and Large. The Medium was more fitting to me and so I returned the large. I cannot believe how smooth and soft the material is. The colors are amazing. I like the wide waistband and all the seams. Great inseam too. I like shorts like this because I tend to get very hot even just sitting still and I need something that doesn't "feel" like it's on my skin. It's stretchy, I think a small might be better for me, but it's not available so I'm gonna stick with what I got - Medium.

    Modest for Booty Shorts

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: medium

    Let me say, the design on these are just fantastic. The seam lines for the waist band is elegant and visually interesting. These are the booty shorts you could probably wear out in public without being disowned by your parents. The fabric is soft and stretchy and the purple heather color is subtle and pretty.

    Short and Sweet

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    I love these shorts. They are amazingly soft and move great with your body. I have worn them for yoga, including Bikram and they really wick moisture. There is a sweet secret pocket in the inside waistband which makes them nice to wear for a quick run as well. I ordered a Large and they fit perfectly.
