The search for the perfect pair of booty shorts is over!
As females, we naturally tend to stress out or over think what we wear to work, school, parties, etc. Getting dressed for the gym should be the easy part - yet, is it really? Probably not. There are so many different styles of booty shorts on the market, chances are- you have a drawer full of ones you wore once and will never wear again (unless in the comfort of your own home). Some shorts may dig into your thighs, squish your hips giving the appearance of the dreaded “love handles”, they might be so thin they are see-through, or may even be so short that your cheeks may slip out. I don’t know about you, but I try to avoid any of these slip-ups during my workouts so I can focus on the task at hand (which is to get a good sweat and to have fun doing it).
So why do my shorts always ride up when I workout?
Fret not ladies, it can very well be issues with the shorts you are wearing and not your body! The shorts could be a skimpy size or could have a saggy inseam. It could be that the leg openings or the shorts are too small, or the rise - the length from waistband to crotch - is too long. Both of these problems lead to bunching.
What should I do?
Here’s a few tips and tricks I use when searching for the perfect pair of booty shorts.
Before even putting them on: feel them. Is the material something you are looking for? I know I want something soft, but not silky, and stretchy, but not too thin. Is there any give when you stretch the waistband? If not, there’s that chance it’ll be too tight on most hips.
Put them on. Play with the waistband (let it lay flat, roll it down a bit- whatever you prefer!).
Do the legs holes feel too snug around your thighs? If the length of the shorts are longer, maybe try pulling them up a bit or let them rest on your thighs at full length.
Move in them. Perform a few squats, lunges, or burpees- do they ride up or stay in place? Some movement is normal on booty shorts but you need to make sure you are comfortable with that movement (if any).
Turn to the side. Do the shorts support your booty or squish it? With how hard we all work for those booties, we most definitely don’t want it to get squished in a pair of shorts! A good pair of shorts will be tight enough to stay in place but not at the risk of squishing the goods ;)
An important thing to remember is that we all have different bodies. Each and every one of us. So don’t get discouraged if one brand of booty shorts fits great on the girl next to you but not on you. That’s totally normal. Do some research, try on more shorts and find the one that is perfect for you!
