Just like that your shorts measurements are essential too, for it to serve the purpose you want e.g. if you want the shorts for a workout session then you may need to get a normal to longer length as major movement in your workout is lateral, similarly if you want it for jogging or running you would want a shorter length as the movement is majorly linear. However, length is always a matter of personal preference& so running shorts are sold in a variety of lengths. Starting with the very short 2″ and extending to 7″.
