It was lost in the post so I never received my order, took over 2 weeks and still no resolve so I requested a full refund, shame as I am a returning customer but felt being left 2 weeks without a replacement being sent was unfair as it was not my fault. I did receive a 20% discount on my next purchase but haven’t returned yet.

My new go to!

I've never found shorts that fit me the way these do. The waistband is the perfect fit and they don't roll. Can't wait to get them in every colour! So pleased I found you! :)

Perfect…As always!

I don’t look like a little boy going to sports day

This is a big deal - because shorts are always big on me I always feel like a little lad about to do the sack race. These feel like shorts for actual ladies - it’s nice to have that extra boost of confidence :)

I'm so pleased our shorts could give you that boost of confidence Amy, it's amazing what properly fitting activewear can do!
