The Long Leg Short from Freya Active is designed to give you support and coverage when swimming or exercising in water and can be matched with the Freya Active Underwired Zipped Crop Top to create a supportive and sporty two piece.
These are a great length, just like cycle shorts. They don't ride up like some will but if you bigger than a size eight they are very unflattering round the tummy! I'm apple shaped and the waist band falls exactly where I dont want it to, just under the belly button just where my flabs worst. I have no real hips either but I wonder if these would fit pear shapes. The are still great for taking my little one swimming but def not beach wear, I think they wouldn't last long round sand.
I wanted these shorts as I have lost a lot of weight and needed something to cover the tops of my legs and my stomach, these shorts did just that they give you a fantastic slim look while not being tight, they feel really comfortable and have given me confidence again , I paired it with a tankini top and it looks stunning
The fit was good. Not too tight at the waist so didn't cut in as much as I thought it might do. Bought it to use for scuba diving at local pool and for the whole 1.5 hrs the shorts did not need adjusting at all.
