How to Find Workout Shorts that Don’t Ride Up
When you’re completing that HIIT/WOD or run, the last thing you want to do is to have to pull your shorts down because the legs constantly ride up to crotch-level...or dig the fabric out of your derriere because the material is sliding up your butt crack. (And then do that over and over again…)
Can you say distraction? If you’re finishing that last set in the box, you definitely don’t want to slow down to tug your shorts down.
Even if you’re going on a light maintenance session, you don’t want the disturbance of ill-fitting shorts... your workout was supposed to be focused after all!
So why do my shorts always ride up when I workout?
Fret not ladies, the culprit is not always your rubbing thighs! It could be a skimpy size or saggy inseam.
Either the leg openings or the shorts are too small, or the rise - the length from waistband to crotch - is too long! Both of these lead to bunching.
What should I do?
In the fitting room, first, check that there's no more than an inch and a half of extra length in the crotch; then lift one leg up to hip level.
If the shorts feel tight across the top of the thigh or across the butt, try a larger size or a different style.
Finding the right shorts to exercise in is a big deal—it can actually make or break your workout. That’s why we consulted four on-top-of-their-game trainers for their favorite picks for shorts that won’t ride up when you get moving.
They considered everything that matters when making their choices, including material, fit, and waistband.
Considering the sheer number of workout shorts our experts own—they’ve tried everything—you can be sure that they know their stuff.
