I am fairly new to yoga, but finding clothing that stays put has been a huge issue for me. I am a size 18 and spandex is not always my friend but I found that these shorts fit more like shape wear. They also offered good support for slimming my tummy. The material is soft and thick and I appreciated the cell phone pocket. I ordered the gray shorts which are a bit shorter than the tan option, but not tok far above the knee. Just be aware of the difference when ordering.
