Just like all activewear, each piece is created based on the movements needed to perform that specific activity. I find it most important to buy your activewear shorts based on what types of workouts you will be taking part in. You wouldn’t want to wear a loose mesh style short to a Hot Vinyasa class or you will be in a very sticky situation, if you know what I mean.
