I am working on designing a pair of shorts. One issue I am having with the first prototype is that the front hand pocket lining pooches out after walking for a while. The material of the shorts is a polyester/spandex blend. The pocket lining has the same material on one side, and soft mesh on the other. I've thought about tacking down the end of the pocket, but I'm not sure if that will restrict motion, and it seems you don't see other shorts/pants doing the same, so there must be a reason people don't do it? Any thoughts on why this happens, and how to correct it?
Thanks in advance!

Are the pocket bags attached to the ss? If not that will stop it. If they are then the next step is to add a pocket stay so that they are secured at cf.
Beyond that you could stitch down the pocket bag following the shape of it through all the thicknesses. You'd then have stitching showing on the front of the shorts. It's a look most people don't like, me included.
