In 2018 I purchased my first pair of Nikes pros; they had the thin waistband and soft material. It took me a couple months to break them in (stopped running up).
I run cross country and lift weights 4 days a week, 5'5 120 pounds; I have strong legs and always wear a medium in shorts, but the medium Nike pros cut into me so bad I sized up to a large just so I can move without restriction. I don't wear a size large in anything except for these shorts. Reading reviews leads me to think that most people are sizing up as well so they're excluding many women with the small fitting. You would think that an Athletic attire company with billions of customers would have correct sizing. I really hope in the future they do a better job representing their customers with an accurate and wider sizing range. The weird inseam on the inner thigh is awful, I throw new pairs in the washer and wear them to bed for a week before I can even attempt to wear them when I run or lift. I know that spandex are supposed to be tight but I don't know a single woman who wants to be pulling on them every 3 seconds, especially runners (it messes up your stride).
Listen to your customers, most female athletes are strong, have muscular thighs, and struggle to find comfortable clothes to workout in. Don't make this harder for us.
Please bring the old ones back, the colors and fun patterns were amazing, and the fit was so much better. I am very close to becoming an Adidas and Under Armour customer full time.
