If you need new workout shorts, this is your post! I’ve rounded up the very best workout shorts for every budget. I also shared why I like each of these items, so there’s more info below on each of these pieces. I LOVE leggings but once the heat of the summer rolls in, I opt for shorts and these ones are just too cute.

SEAMLESS COMPRESSION SHORTS | here
I’ve purchased these multiple times! I wore these all the time right after I had my babies because I love that they keep you feeling sucked in. I love the seamless fit… they feel amazing to wear. Now, I wear these as a liner under looser fitting workout shorts.
HIGHER END WORKOUT SHORTS
These are one of my recent favorites. In fact, I recently discovered this brand and LOVE all the shorts and leggings I’ve purchased so far. The fit is beyond flattering and they’re well worth the price in my opinion.

LULULEMON SPEED-UP SHORT | here
I recommend these to women who like a closer to the body fit for shorts. These are amazing at completely staying put while you workout… when you squat, they don’t sag down. I also love that they updated these to a longer, 4 inch inseam.

LULULEMON ALIGN SHORT 6” | here
These are it if you’re looking for a biker short. I have several lengths of these but always find the 6 inch to be a really good balance between functional for workouts and long enough to get good coverage.

I LOVE these shorts. You’ve probably seen me wear the hot pink ones (which unfortunately sold out). It’s a super popular look to wear these with a yoga/spandex short underneath as pictured. I wear mine with the black seamless shorts I shared above.
