A couple months ago (April I think?) I ordered some shorts online. It’s been awhile since I’ve bought shorts, so I probably shouldn’t have done it online, but what can I say? I needed them and had put off going to the store to get them cause I didn’t want to spend forever in the fitting room.

I ended up deciding to go with these ones. One thing I knew I wanted in a pair of shorts was length. I find a lot of shorts just too short. These ones come to 5 or 6 inches of my knees. That makes me happy. They’re comfortable enough that I feel like I can do just about anything in them.

They’re made of a mesh fabric, so they’re nice and cool too. However the mesh does bring up a small problem. You can see through them. That makes it kind of awkward when you want to wear them in public.

Problem solved though, with the purchase of compression shorts! Now no one is the wiser that they’re see through. Plus, because the mesh ones are a little baggy, the compression shorts deal with any kind of chafing that could happen.

I’ve been using them to play soccer for the last couple months and I’m really happy with them. I usually don’t buy clothes online, but after this success I might have to try it again.

What was the last thing you bought online?
