It always feels like a gamble buying workout clothes online. So when there's a sure thing, we want to let you know about it. Meet the Ododos High Waist Tummy Control Yoga Shorts. With more than 14,000 perfect five-star fans at Amazon, and gobs of descriptive rave reviews, these shorts are an easy win — and potentially an essential part of your summer wardrobe.
While they're obviously great for virtually any type of exercise, the Ododos shorts are also popular for another use: Many shoppers report that they wear them to prevent thigh chafing in the summer. Folks say they're perfect — stretchy, supportive and comfortable — and they have the added benefit of making you feel secure (protected from accidental peek-a-boos).
These top-sellers come in two lengths —short and long — and 88 different colors. They're brilliantly designed with pockets deep enough for a phone, cash and keys, and the material is unmatched: It's a four-way stretch fabric that provides tummy control while helping wick away moisture.
Right now these amazing shorts, usually $44, are on sale, starting at $20. Here are more reasons to love them — straight from the shoppers' mouths — and a few of our favorite colors.
Smooth, supportive and slimming
The reviews are in, and they're spectacular:
“Incredibly flattering and practical...[I'm a] 60-plus year old woman, struggling with a larger and larger abdomen — though in otherwise good shape, shape is changing with age. These are soft, go to the knee, and have pockets. Very flattering. And practical,” shared a happy customer.
“This is my third pair of these shorts, and they are my favorite workout shorts. The tummy band stays in place, and helps to smooth out any bulges, and the material is stretchy, allowing for easy movement in my kickboxing classes.... There are also so many color options with these shorts. I wash them in the machine, and dry them for only 30 minutes on low, letting them air dry for the rest of the time. My prior pairs have held up well with weekly use, and the fabric hasn't pilled one bit,” said one shopper.
The pockets are life-changing
“I often wear skirts and dresses when I am out for a night of dancing. I love these shorts because they have pockets, so I can keep small items like my phone, lip balm, expandable tampons, and credit cards right there on my hip without them falling out. They don't create a crazy weird bulge as long as you wear something that doesn't hug your upper thigh. I can go hands-free for the night, instead of carrying a purse or clutch around with me. If you do use these shorts under a dress or skirt, take extra care when you pull them down to go to the bathroom that your stuff doesn't fall out. The legs are long enough that they don't feel like underwear, and they don't ride up. They are pretty breathable, and the material is like most other bike shorts,” said one customer.
The softest poly-spandex blend
“These are my new favorite running shorts! I've always been a fan of spandex running shorts, but have become more self-conscious about wearing them as I've gotten older... The length of these is perfect, they don't ride up, and they don't suck you in like a sausage. The pockets are awesome and super functional. I'm able to fit my iPhone very comfortably and my house keys in the other without worry. It's also easy to access your phone during a run if you need to. I was afraid it would be a hassle, but definitely not. These are great!” wrote one customer.
No more chafing
“I love these shorts. Not only are they soft and still have spandex feel to them, but having big thighs I literally can't wear any shorts that are above mid-thigh. These go down just a little above my knees and it prevents chafing while still looking stylish. I'd 100% recommend these!” shared one happy shopper.
