women’s crazy cat running shorts

The most looked-forward-to gift for my runners! They know they’ll fit. They know they’re comfortable. But they won’t know what they’ll look like until Christmas morning! Such a fun way to remember a funny moment or express themselves!

Catactular! But def size 1-2 up

LOVE THE CAT PRINT. Im a little crazy for cats, so this design is purrfect!

Only complaint is about sizing: I’ve been wearing various models and designs of BOA shorts over the last 6 years (7 pairs), but these are cut suuuper small in the waist. I know the description says it’s for “elite athletes” and so it runs extremely short..that doesn’t bother me, nor does the split. I’ve run on an elite racing team for several years now, and there are plenty of elite women who would still not fit their usual waist size in these 1” split BOA shorts.

Definitely read the size chart carefully! I’m 5’5, 125 ish and a consistent S in Nike, Oiselle (4), New Balance etc. But it seems I’d be more of a L in BOA (28-29” waist).

I ended up getting the men’s version, size S (also a 28-29” waist) which is MUCH more comfortable without the shorts feeling more flowy or exposed than the equivalent women’s size. The men’s elite 1” also has a slightly wider waistband with a drawstring, and sits a tad higher on the waist so the band isn’t cutting into your stomach or making a muffin top when there normally isn’t one with proper sizing standards. The only issue is a baggy-feeling liner now, but it doesn’t chafe and if adjusted a bit before running, it actually provides more butt coverage in case that split flies open more than you wanted ;)

In summary: Size at least 1 up (2 if comfort is important to you), or get a men’s small if you’re normally a women’s small!
