Any recommendations for caprs for running/jogging for bigger gals? Thank you

I get my running capris at Target. They're cheap (the Champion brand) and hold up fairly well.

What do you mean by "bigger gals"? Size large, extra large? I wear a large in tights and my favorite capris are Under Armour. I know they are pricey but I found these on the clearance rack at Dicks two seasons ago and love them. I won't pay full price for them.

Jealous. I love their tights but they don't pass the see-through test with my round bottom. I always have to wear shorts over them. Or just cross my fingers that I don't have to tie my shoes in front of anyone. They do last forever, though.

I got a pair of Sugoi running capris here on TE that fit well. Not super cheap, but not super expensive, either. I wear them for all kinds of things.

Size XL. Thanks for the suggestions. I will check Target out and Under Armour(going to the UA outlet store next weekend).

I recently bought the Sugoi Jackie capri and the Brooks Infinity Capri. The Brooks are more compressive and are made of a thicker material. I like the Sugois but the part under my knee doesn't stay put very well. That said, I prefer them for warmer temps and indoor runs on the treadmill.

Ooooooh. Neato burrito.

+1 on the UA capris. I never liked spandex so much until I tried running in mine, and that's coming from someone with years of spandex experience via bike shorts.
