Why do women run in capri tights on 90 degree days?

It seems to me that shorts would be much cooler.

Yet some of the women I see walking around town in short shorts should be wearing capris. Quite a conundrum.

I would hope that its because their man wants to take some extra time peeling off the extra clothing before they hop into the shower.

That being said when I lived in FL I would do a lot if my running around 330am and would wear zoot tights. It was a win/win. No one could see me in tights and I didn't get as sore.

Perhaps they don't want to chafe. Sometimes shorts can do that in high humidity conditions.

Wouldn't above the knee spandex shorts be cooler and still not reveal cellulite?

The cellulite around the knee is the very most ugliest of all cellulite...

They perceive their lower half to be unsightly, which it probably isn't.

Good point. I've noticed all runners (at least marathoners) have great looking legs even if there upper bodies are overweight.

capris are cute. Spandex above the knee shorts are not. More women can pull off capris then running in 'bike shorts'.

I have often wondered this myself. If it's over 60, my legs get freakishly claustrophobic if they get too hot.

65 is my cutoff point. After that I'm in shorts.

This here. Finding the right shorts is like trying to find the perfect fitting shoe. Neither come easy which is why women will wear capri pants to run or flip flops to run errands.

Honest question- how is it then that we men, who I will agree are vastly outmatched in almost any other category, are able to accomplish this feat so easily? I am pretty happy in pretty much all the shorts and shoes that I have.

I was just having this discussion with a lady friend. She was shocked to hear that when she is not over I sleep in jeans. This makes perfect sense to me. I come home from work, run, shower, put some clothes on, do whatever till I am tired and then fall asleep in whatever clothes I am wearing. Makes perfect sense to me yet she seemed to think I should be uncomfortable sleeping like this.

Do girls intentionally select clothes based on maximum discomfort?

I am constantly on a quest to find the perfect running shorts. I'll never have an upper thigh gap, no matter how thin I get. I'm not built that way. Regular running shorts are typically too short and longer, loose ones ride up so compression shorts are what work. I hear the same thing from a lot of women.

Women spend a lot of money on clothing so I do not think most buy with discomfort in mind. Many buy for functionality and practicality which is so many do not wear shorts.
I have a big butt and large thighs so to buy shorts for running is a daunting task. The liners may hug my butt showing lines, be too long so the legs riding up suffocating my triangle or just too damn short and unattractive altogether. Capri pants do none of this. Also, my legs sweat then start to itch in shorts.
I think being shocked about you sleeping in jeans is a bit much but it seems both lazy and uncomfortable unless you are wearing Pajama Jeans.
