Summer in New England means heat and humidity, and that means not melting at the gym. I had a Fabletics outfit credit, so I decided to order the Volute outfit, which is no longer available. And it was a credit well-spent.

I’ve reviewed the Dili short before, and those are awesome. But I think the Moro shorts have eclipsed Dili as my favorite resistance training shorts. The compression is spectacular! They’re also a polyester/spandex blend, and the inseam is 2 3/4″. The rise isn’t too low, meaning they hold in my loose skin nicely, and they don’t ride up (although I will end up tugging at my shorts in self-conscious moments). I chose the black and white ones, and they’re very subtly striped, which you can’t see as well on the Fabletics website. But I love the stripes.
Finally, there’s the headband. It’s a nylon/polyester/spandex blend, and it stays in place. It’s great quality, and it keeps my head from getting soaked in sweat, so it’s a win-win situation for me. I got the pink grapefruit color, which is different from the pink grapefruit of the Omemee tank.

Overall, I’m pleased with this outfit. I had also ordered a Moa jacket and Aventura tank, but I sent those back. The Moa is cute, but it’s pretty sheer and doesn’t seem like it will be useful in the extreme hot/cold of New England. Also, the sleeves seemed kind of tight, but the rest fit my torso fine. The Aventura tank’s armholes are too big for me; I just wasn’t comfortable wearing a tank like that. But both are cute – I want to emphasize that – cute, but not for me.
