Favorite Brand of Spandex Running Shorts

Any Suggestions For Not-Too-Short Spandex Running Shorts?

If you're a runner, FitSugar reader sassymolassy is in need of some new running shorts. Can you suggest any good brands?

I'm wondering if anyone has a type of spandex running shorts that are both wicking and stay in place, but are not BOOTY shorts. You know the kind I'm talking about. And, since we are runners, our legs aren't too hideous so I'd like them to be not too long either. Suggestions?

If you have any other running questions, post them in the RunningSugar community group. Not a runner? Maybe you'd rather check out the Yoga Stretch and Tell community group or the Women That Rock (Climb) group, or if biking is more your thing, head over to the new group Sweet on Biking.

I just prefer the nike version of these. But usually I like the air moving so I wear the old regulars the more air, your less likely to get yeast infections or UTI's

Thanks for the suggestions, everyone! Lots of great options to check out.
TammyO TammyO 6 years has great running skirts. They are light, wicking, stay in place, don't chafe, they are short and cute but most of all the skirt over the shorts also cover your back end so you don't feel over exposed. I have two skirts over shorts versions and one skirt over capri version. Best of all they have built in pockets on the shorts.

Try training capris. Nike make some good ones.

I actually really like the Fila spandex type shorts at Khol's. They hit just above the knee, hold up well to wash and wear, and feel nice.

I was going to suggest the lululemon Reverse Groove shorts, but Gym Belle beat me to it!

I have a pair of Champion shorts that I got at Target that fit perfectly into the not-too-long, not-too-short category for me. I also have a few pairs of Champion from a regular sports store that I like.

I'm a big fan of these: They have a shorter version as well, but those look too short to me. They're wicking and they're comfy.
