I’m 5’5” with large quads, finding shorts has always been a challenge, generally way to long and have gotten used to folding the waist band to shorten them. Don’t have to do that with these shorts, they sit a few inches above the knee and conform to the thighs quite well. I will most likely buy the same short in different colors.
Great pair of shorts. Very comfortable.
Whatever town you live in! I use to think UA, Nike and Seven for All Mankind were my brands, but now I have just one favorite thanks to Barbell. Hoping and praying for more colorways in these, the Rangers and the v necks, all super soft and well made!
I bought them because they were on sale and I already have every other color available- “desert sand” is a bit of a stretch- the color is more like “buttery gold” - in fact, the first day I wore them two gym acquaintances had a debate over what weird shade of yellow they were. So, if you care about that, take into consideration that the color shown in the ad looks a bit less “shimmery golden honey mustard” compared to in person.
Waistband is too narrow for my partner. Weird balance of a thicker core and large thighs not fitting.
These are very comfortable shorts. They are greet for leg workouts and running. The material is very flexible and soft. I would definitely recommend these for any physical activity.
With my PRIOR shorts my phone slipped out during leg extensions and the back of my phone shattered.
BB Phantom shorts have solved that problem permanently! I confirmed that both side pockets had zippers before I ordered two pair.
* My phone stays secure in my pocket
* Shorts are very light weight and flexible -- awesome
* On a recent international trip I had regular shorts plus these BB Phantom shorts for working out. However I ended up wearing the Phantom shorts all the time. Why? My regular shorts had one side zippered pocket but if it wasn't zippered my phone would fall out. With the BB Phantom shorts I could zipper if sitting, but if walking and taking pictures I could put my phone in the pocket and not zipper it and have the phone quickly accessible for pictures; yet my phone would never fall out because of the depth of the BB Phantom side pockets. It ended up being the best shorts for both regular use and for working out. Phone in one side pocket and wallet in the other side pocket (I never use back pockets). Having a deep and zippered pocket on both sides is really helpful!
Highly recommend these shorts. Fit well. Light Weight. Flexible. Deep Zippered Pockets. Good both in the gym and outside of the gym. I have two pair and I'm set.
I always buy lululemon, I am so glad I bought these shorts extremely comfortable and fits great.
