Out of all the pole fit apparel Bad Kitty offers the competition shorts are my absolute favorite! They're short and snug enough to use for all moves on the pole, but not too short where my bum is hanging out more than I feel comfortable showing. Also, the pattern/color rocks!! I wish there were more fun designs for the competition shorts instead of solid colors. The only negative I have (and I'm sure many people who order online feel this way), is that even though I have been ordering smalls and I feel good in a small, sometimes I wonder if a medium might fit me just a little better. I'm 5'5" and about 136 lbs. with a pretty muscular body type. I don't want to waste my money buying a medium when the small clearly fits, but I think with my body measurements I'm right on the cusp, and without being able to go into a store and compare both I just have to go by what I know. Otherwise these are my favorite shorts!
