I was looking for a pair of cute and comfy gym shorts like these for a while. I noticed in the drop-down menu when you are picking a color, "white&light blue" is listed twice in each size. As you can see in the pictures, there is a light purple color that is not listed in the drop-down menu. I figured it was a mistake and the purple was listed as blue. I wanted the purple pair so I took a risk and ordered one of the light blue options (in the second set I believe) and it paid off! Light purple shorts came to me, the sticker on the packaging listed them as the light blue option too. So if you want the purple pair, you will have to select one of the blue options and likewise if you want blue be careful which you select because you might end up with purple.
As for the shorts themselves, they are just the right length in the crotch, so I don't have to wear them really low down. I wear them just above my hips. They are very cute and comfortable. They are tight but not suffocating and loosen up as you wear them and move around in them. Highly recommend.
For reference I am 5'2" and measure 32"-24"-34".
