Product Summary

Offering a snug, compressive fit, the Senita Athletic Apparel’s High Waisted Rio Shorts are well-suited for both cardio and strength training workouts. Made from a thick nylon and spandex blend, these shorts are designed to provide support and warmth. The Rio shorts feature an inseam length of 3.75-inches, side pockets, a high-waisted fit, and are available in three sizes.

The Rio shorts do run small, and Senita Athletic Apparel recommends sizing up. Reviews confirm the small sizing as several buyers even suggest sizing up two sizes. The Rio shorts do not have much stretch so if you get a size that is small, so don’t expect it to stretch over-time. Some users found that the legs roll up on runs however, most reviews report that the waistband stays in place even when running with a phone and keys in the pockets.
