Running Mamas

Can you recommend a pair of good but affordable running shorts? I have a pair of Nike running shorts but I also have thick thighs and the shorts seem to bunch up and make me look like i'm wearing panties while I run. lol!

Try running in a skirt instead. Target carries one.

Re: Running Mamas

Not the cheapest but I've been running in this style for years:

Lotta miles on them and no tears or rips and you have pockets to put your key and phone in.

I only run in compression pants for that very reason. They don't go anywhere! I have some Nike and Old Navy ones that are both good.

I haven't found any! I run in shorts that are tight on my thighs. But because they are not the smallest part of my body, and I hate the way plain bike shorts look on me, I get ones that are knee length or slightly longer that ate looser at the bottom. Seems to help balance things out. But I also live in the Pacific Northwest and we have fairly mild temps-usually doesn't get above the 70s in the summer.
