Got my Tempos...hello thunder thighs

I have thunder thighs and a puffy butt in them. My new motivation to run is to look better in my new running shorts :)

Re: Got my Tempos...hello thunder thighs

    sad face. I didn't get mine.

    I placed two separate orders within minutes of each other. One was for the super discount tempos (those are the ones that came today) and the other was for another pair of tempos that were $2 more (better colors) plus a pair of running tights. The second order hasn't even shipped yet...and it's the running tights I was most anticipating.

  • I can't run in them.  I love them for non running days though.

    I ordered tights, too. Did you get the cable-knit ones, or another kind? I'm hoping to get mine before Saturday when we do a long run!

    I called them tights...I think they are technically just running capris. It was THESE.

    Ooh I love the back zipper!

  • I got mine too...they are pretty fug color-wise, but whatever. They will be like my emergency ugly underwear when all my good ones are dirty. I'll call them "laundry day" running shorts. Stick out tongue
  • OH boy I'm excited! ACcording to UPS mine should be here today!

  • I also ordered one pair of the super cheap ones and one pair of the $2 more expensive ones.  The super cheap ones shipped immediately, and the other pair has not shipped yet.  So annoying!

  • How do the tempos fit everyone?? I've never worn them before, and I ordered a M because I'm a solid medium in pretty much every article of clothing ever invented. (Size 6/8) My tempos fit perfectly at the waist but they're SO poofy that I look like I have no butt - and I'm a ghetto booty kinda girl! I don't think it's super attractive, or maybe I'm just not used to the style because most of my running bottoms are skin-tight.

    I'm considering returning them for a size S. Should I??

    I don't think they're necessarily meant to be flattering, but I find them very functional.  They're a little poofy (and I have a bubble butt anyway) but I'm not wearing them to look skinny, I'm wearing them because they're comfy to run in.

  • I love my Tempos, but they are super puffy in the crotch as opposed to the butt on me.  Weird, yes, but they get the job done. :)

    This!  They aren't the most flattering, but they're super comfy and have never, ever ridden up on me during a race.

    My more expensive ones shipped today along with the running capris.

    But I run faster when I look cute. :)

    I kept them rather than deal with returning them, and wore them to circuit training class today. They're a little more tolerable when they're rolled once or twice. They are quite functional and comfy. I caught sight of myself in the mirror and I seriously looked (to me) like i had bird legs. Since I'm actually pretty curvy and I usually feel like a fata$$ next to the skinny trophy wives at the gym, I wasn't quite sure how to feel about that!
