Few trends have come roaring back into the spotlight in the same way that bike shorts have over recent years, and it doesn’t seem like their appeal is slowing down any time soon. Not only are they a warm-weather alternative to your favourite leggings, they're also a comfortable and on-trend way to put together an outfit that takes you from lounging at home to an outdoor workout with ease.
In case you needed more proof that the bike short trend is here to stay, one pair of top-rated shorts have surged in popularity this week on Amazon.
What are they?
Sales of the Souke Sports Women's High Waist Yoga Shorts have spiked a whopping 24,000 per cent, making them one of the most in-demand styles on the site. Designed with a sculpting tummy control panel and a compression fit, these shorts are top choice for the season.
Sweat-wicking and squat-proof fabric gives these bike shorts a functional appeal, so you’ll never have to worry about an unfortunate fashion mishap. They also feature a zippered side pocket to keep your valuables securely in place through any workout.
The shorts come in sizes small to extra extra large — and retail for $30. Choose from nine different colours, which range from subtle neutral shades to bold and vibrant hues.
Why shoppers love them
In addition to being Amazon Canada’s best-selling style of yoga shorts, the Souke Sports Women's High Waist Yoga Shorts have earned a 4.5-star rating from more than 100 customer reviews.
One shopper raved that the shorts passed the squat test and lived up to their quick-drying claims.
“These shorts are great! They fit perfectly and look great on,” they wrote. “They’re super soft and comfortable and are dry for material, so they don’t leave sweat marks. They’re also thick enough so there’s no show through when doing squats or stretching. I highly recommend!”
“I love these shorts, they are very flattering and the colour is nice,” shared another. “The length is perfect, it does ride up a bit but unlike other shorts this is not annoying as it is still flattering and does not flash the bum.”
One complaint that shoppers have noted is that while these shorts do come with pockets, if you’re hoping to keep your cell phone on hand you may find them too small for some larger models.
“Perfect high waist [but] forget the phone pocket. Too small, but maybe for a key or lip balm,” reads one review.
To buy or not to buy?
If you’re thinking about diving into the world of bike shorts, this shopper-approved style is a great place to start. Not only are they suitable for workouts and loungewear, they also offer a second-skin feel for weightless comfort.
If ample storage is something you look for in your activewear, you may want to give the Souke Sports shorts a pass. On the other hand, if fit is more important than pocket space, these might just become your new go-to pair.
