If you've found the perfect running capris- come on in

Hi ladies!

I'm on a quest for great capris, or preferably knee pants. I'm short so the length is better with those.

I have larger thighs so shorts are out of the question, and the tight/compression styles work best. In addition to running, I also lift, and practice yoga and occasionally join in for some zumba. The fabric needs to be fairly substantial and no cotton. With all the bending, seeing through them cannot be an option. There's also a bit of a cellulite issue that I would like smoothed rather than accentuated.

So far my favorites are the Target Running Knee pant. But the waistband folds down often and that bugs me.

Let me know your faves! Expensive or cheap doesn't matter. I just want to know what works!

Also- if you need a pair of medium nike filment capris, I'm selling some. I was too optimistic on the sizing

Man Erica, you are speedy! Although I'm not sure your skinny little thighs require the same pants as mine

Race ready. http://www.raceready.com/womens-compression/5402LD.html

The material is thick enough that it isn't see through, but light enough that you aren't drowning in your sweat. The pockets on the butt are life saving.

I've got some curves and the capris are flattering. I also REALLY love the skirt.

That ruffle thing on the butt is freaking me out!

Great info, exactly what I'm looking for.

I don't own any because of the price, but I have always heard good things about Lululemon.
