I am looking for a recommendation for a pair of shorts to wear under other shorts or a skirt. I want something not too long, but not too short and not too tight that it will make my legs look like sausages but tight enough to not ride up <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"> Any suggestions?

Aerotech. Son1 and I have several pairs of their cycling shorts and are very happy with them. I think they run large. First pair was an XS and they fit perfect. They were "seconds", so I assumed that they were mis-labeled. Nope. Second pair is S and they are too big. Son1 has a pair of compression shorts for swimming. In the fishbowl, they havent' lasted very long, but lycra generally doesn't. They are a US company and you can email them to ask about sizing.<br><br>
If that doesn't work, check with Foxwear. They do mostly fleece, but made custom lycra tights for son1.

This might not be your "style" but next time you drive by a Goodwill, Salvation Army type of thrift store look for shorts there. They will only be $2-$4 and if they work, great, if not you are only out a couple bucks.<br><br>
I don't know where I go my compression shorts, but they were bought "2nd hand". I don't even know the brand name.

I like the longer underarmour compression shorts - they come in various inseams.

I have a pair of capri length compression tights by Underarmour, and I love them. I tried on a bunch of different brands and found that the seams on these ones were the least irritating. I don't know if they would give me sausage legs if they were shorter, but it's worth checking out.

I too have these but they aren't my favorite. I have a thicker pair of 9" Velocity Compression shorts from RoadRunnerSports that are much more comfortable. Womens come in 3.5" or 7"<br><br><a href="http://www.roadrunnersports.com/rrs/products/RRL990/" target="_blank">http://www.roadrunnersports.com/rrs/products/RRL990/</a>

I go with the basic Under Armour heat gear compression shorts. My DW prefers the women's version as well. They breathe well, keep their form and don't ride up too much.<br><br>
If you don't want to pay UA prices, C9 from Target isn't bad either.

thanks! I will look into the UA ones. I have a lot of C9 things, but i think for long races and long runs, they would be too prone to chaffing. They are great to a point.

I get mine @ WalMart or the "house brand" at Academy. Just $10 a pop either place and they're just fine. Unfortunately, don't think Sam Walton has them for the "distaff side" and Academy isn't nationwide.<br><br>
