Model is 5’6” (168 cm) and 124lbs (56kg) & wearing size Small.
The Little Bit Longer shorts are amazing! They don't ride up at all, are compressive and supportive, and the wide waist band is so comfortable and flattering. I did find that the black material was a little more compressive than the new clouds prints so I sized up in the black. For reference, I am 5'5/130lbs and wear a S in the clouds version and a M in the black.
Perfect fit. True to size (I chose the small based on Jordan Blanco’s recommendation - I’m 5’9, 125 and they’re spot on) and the material is not shiny or Lyra-ish in feel. So excited to open the package today that I went on a second run to give them a test and they are perfect!
I really like the fit and length - in concept - of these shorts and have three pairs that are in my weekly running attire rotation (I live in a hot, humid climate and most of the year anything longer is death). I will admit that one of the pairs I own is the old Wyn Republic version and I prefer the silkier feel of that fabric - it allows a better fit when putting them on. I also think there must be a very slight variation in length bc I don't get thigh chafe on those whereas I do get mild thigh chafe in the MALO ones (a function of my thighs, not the shorts lol). These are still much better than anything else I've seen/owned, and I really appreciate the high, long waist and back zip pocket. For reference, I purchased a size S (my usual size in bottoms) and I'm 5'6", 130 lbs.
These are the only compression shorts I have found to stay put and stay comfortable on my big quads and glutes during runs. I do recommend sizing based on your hip measurements rather than waist seeing as the solids do run a bit snug. For reference, I have a 42” hip and 30” waist and the XL fits great!
These shorts are the perfect length for runs or the gym, don’t slide down while picking up the pace, and are made from great wicking fabric. My new go-to pair!
