Being a chick with larger quads and glutes I never thought I'd be able to wear booty shorts as they'd dig in. HOWEVER! I thought I'd take the plunge and go for it. The tie up option really makes it easier to wear! I only rate it 4 stars as they do ride up but that is definitely due to my larger legs and not the design of the short itself. I size up in all my shorts due to this reason too (I'm an L in leggings)!
