Two years into adopting loungewear as a uniform, we're feeling like the "trend" is here to stay. But as the flowers start to bloom, it's time to step out of sweats and into something lighter. Namely, bike shorts.

As you well know, bike shorts are about a lot more than biking. They're perfect under a short dress, ideal for warm-weather workouts and exactly what we feel like wearing around the house pretty much all the time. The challenge, though, is to find a flattering pair that perfectly marries comfort and support.

Leave it to Amazon shoppers to ID the winners. The crowd is going wild for Baleaf bike shorts, which offer everything you could ever want in a pair of bike shorts — including the right amount of compression — at a perfect price. We're talking as low as $16 for some colors (down from $26).

If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

The Baleaf bike shorts are taking over Amazon, with nearly 50,000 perfect five-star reviews. Shoppers love these shorts for their fit, softness and versatility.

The soft fabric prevents chafing. The high waist provides a bit of tummy control. And with snug side pockets deep enough to hold a phone (or even a wallet!), the Baleaf bike shorts are as practical as they are comfy. They come in a huge range of colors, so you can snap up a pair to match each of your shorter dresses (there's nothing like the security of a hidden pair of bike shorts, especially on a windy day). Prefer shorter shorts? There are five different lengths available and the sizes range from XS to 3X.

"I bought these shorts not for exercising, but actually for the sole purpose to wear under dresses to help keep the dreaded chub rub at bay. To that end, they did their job!" raved one thrilled shopper. "The shorts are soft and very stretchy, and as an added bonus they helped keep my belly under wraps as well as protect my thick thighs from chafing under the dress. You can’t tell I was wearing anything underneath."

One new mom raved: "I’m actually 6 weeks postpartum and need some comfy clothes I can start to move around in more. These are fantastic. I can do my light workouts, they don’t roll down and I love the compression they have. Oh, and my husband says he plans on getting me them in every color, so he loves them too. Definitely worth it."

"These are hands down the best workout bike shorts I’ve ever owned," said one faithful customer who owns four pairs. "They fit like a dream, the buttery soft brush makes them feel exactly like Lulu biker shorts, and they are compression fit. They don’t ride up at all and stay put. Plus the pockets are a perfect bonus. I was so shocked I was able to find literal Lulu quality shorts for this price. I’m so picky with workout wear and these exceeded every expectation I had! Definitely buy!"
