Positive Reviews:

I love the CW-X clothing line and i'm on my third pair of bottoms. These however, fit a bit different than the pants. I wear a medium usually, but large in this fabric fits nicer. They come just above the knee, which I love (great for large thighs, it prevents the dreaded overhang from the elastic grippers on the thigh). They don't have as much stretch as the pants, which have a thin fleece lining. They offer amazing compression, but the fabric is taking a while to get used to. It is not as soft as the pants which are lined with a small amount of fleece. Instead they are very breathable and made of a thick material that holds things tight. Overall, they get the job done. I am finding that getting through the break in period of washing and wearing over and over has softened up the fabric to make it a kick butt compression short!!! I love them! They are great summer running shorts, or to save a little money for the colder seasons, i may just use them under some fleece lined pants! You will not be disapointed if you are an avid runner looking for some compression shorts to help you go longer and reduce lactic acid build up! They really do make a difference for fighting fatigue. Try 'em, you will never run with out them. I have a pair for every season. Just invested in the sport bra too (basic sport model) and it is very soft and comfortable. The bra runs a bit big. If you are looking to smash your tatas to your chest, go smaller and wear two bras. This is the only combination that works for large c breasts and cross country running! Believe me, i have tried every bra and combination on the market. The best combo and best advice for avid runners with large c breasts would be; a nike pro fit sport bra under the cwx sport bra. It holds 'em thight to your chest and does not chaff your underarms or cause the under arm love handles from your bra ( I hate that!). Hope this helps. It took me many years of trying bras and pants to meet the demands, but here you go!!! Michigan offers so many seasons, the ever changing temps. really put a hole in your pocket book as far as having the right gear for the right temp. Good luck with your choices!!!

I love these shorts! I also have a pair of the Pro Shorts, which I've had for many years. Even after many washes (cold water, line dry), they are still perfect and do not ride up or get stretched out. These new Stabilyx shorts are made specifically for the hip flexors and IT band. I got the medium shorts for me are a perfect (and snug) fit. I'm approximately a size 6, waist is about 28 inches, hips about 38 inches. These shorts are definitely worth the price--the nicest shorts I have ever run in--period.

The first time I wore them running it was uncomfortable because they felt too tight, but I am used to wearing them now. I cut out the drawstring in the waist (not needed) and the small patch of extra fabric in the crotch (I guess if you wear them commando-style?) and they fit great now. Really holds in the gut nicely.

I've been wearing these shorts for more than a year. I just bought 2 more on sale because I don't ever want to be without them. I love the strong compression and cooling vent. Take good care of them and they will last a long time.
CW-X is worth the investment.

The style is fine however they are very very tight. Maybe they're supposed to be but I'd be more comfortable with a size up. Maybe they'll be more comfortable when it isn't so hot outside. Once they're on (which requires a specific strategy) they are like a second skin.

Do What They Say

I bought these shorts for marathon training and running and they are very comfortable and since wearing them the top of my legs are less sore after a long run. Very comfortable, they are long and come to just above the knee but I like this.
Brownie at Paragon Sports on 10/10/2010
These are the best workout shorts I\'ve ever owned. Expensive, but well worth the price for the support and comfort. Very true to size chart -- if they are hard to pull on the first time, you have the right size!

This is new design of shorts I have been using for over a year. I did not hesitate to try it. This is an excellent product. It provides great tummy support and is flexible at the same time.

I love CWX tights and I love! These are high-compression shorts and seem to run a little smaller than my other CWX tights. I use these for running and gym work.

Great product

I love these running shorts. The technology behind the brand is incredible! My muscles don't seem as tired after the long 20 miler training run, highly recommend for the serious athlete.

Negative Reviews:

I purchased these shorts as I trained for my second marathon, while running about 40-50 miles a week. I am 5' 7" and 155 lbs and I wear compression shorts to prevent my thighs from rubbing while I run. The length was nice and a medium fit me well. While the tummy panel rivals most girdles, looking sleek is not my number one requirement in running gear. Function is far more important and unfortunately these shorts fail to deliver high quality. To my sheer dismay, the seams on the inner thighs of these shorts wore out after only 6 weeks of wearing them! The seams split in the middle of a 16 mile run and caused some extreme chafing and discomfort. I was extremely disappointed with the quality of these shorts for the price. However, my sadness was slightly alleviated by Zappos' excellent customer service.
