Bought these for the mrs and she says she want 3 more! She extremely picky so I’d say that deserves 5 stars
I love these shorts. Great waist, don’t ride up. Perfecto!
I love the material. Super good quality.
I love how the waist doesn’t dig into me. I like the wider band. It is slightly larger in the waist than I expected. I would get these again, but probably in an extra small. The only thing, they are on the short side. Cheeks may show. I’m also 5’2” about 121-123lbs.
Comfortable, fit great.
I can't get enough of these shorts. They are not too tight or too loose. If I could, I would wear them to the gym everyday.
Love the way they fit.
I love these shorts. The length is perfect for big quads, they don’t ride up. The wide waist band doesn’t cut. By far my favorites!
I got these for my girlfriend and she loves them. Her new favorite gym shorts.
Super stretchy, super comfy. I usually wear a size 2-4 or XS. Ordered these in an XS and they fit true to size. Easily one of the most comfortable pair of shorts I own. Can't recommend these enough.
The shorts are so comfy, and allow me to move freely - fit snugly without pinching, riding up or creating buldges.
Please make more women's stuff.
Pretty comfortable! Best fitting shorts I own.
Definitely for thick thighs. These shorts are amazing and I will definitely be buying more colors!
Athletic Chino Shorts in Black
At first try-on, I mostly liked these. After an hour or so of wear, I love them. They really do 'break in' to be super comfortable and molded to my body. I'd personally love one more inch of inseam, but they're still great. For sizing, I'm 5'2", 125ish lbs, 38.5" hip measurement, 23.5" thigh measurement, and while the 26 probably would have fit fine after an hour or so to stretch slightly, I kept the 27s for a more comfortable fit.
Absolutely in love with these shorts in all colors.
These shorts are the best! The fit is perfect and they are so comfortable. It’s like wearing workout shorts.
I was apprehensive about trusting the size chart, but it was spot on, and the shorts fit perfectly without any gapping around the waist and provided just enough room in the thigh area. I immediately purchased another pair in the khaki the same day. The grey color is very light, more like an off-white, and I ended up preferring the darker khaki color. Every woman needs these shorts in her drawer for when she just doesn't want to look like she came from the gym.
These shorts are really comfortable and look great. I will say that they run small, I wear a size 29 in the chino pants and needed a size 31 in the shorts. Otherwise they are a great product.
They fit great. Love everything about them!! Will buy another pair.
It's not trashy shorts and it's not middle school thigh length shorts. It's just the right length, it fits perfect to your body. I wish I had all the colors. But I can't get ahead of myself because I plan on losing more weight. If I buy them now they won't fit later. I seriously hope these are in stock when I reach my goal weight.
These are not only comfy, but fit really well for my hip to waist ratio. I’ve never seen another company sell athletic built shorts that are not jean shorts, and if there was another- none would be as great as these. Sizing is perfect.
These are the first shorts that fit around my waist without a gap, and still provide enough room in the thigh area, without making me look like I just got out of the gym. I am grateful to have found these. The tan shade is fantastic, and the material is a bit more stiff than the grey. The sizing chart was accurate without adjustments necessary.
Athletic Chino Shorts in Khaki
It has always been such a struggle for me to find a nice pair of shorts. And these shorts were no joke. They fit so comfortably around my waist, hips, and thighs! A lot of retail shorts often have the waist too loose, thigh area too tight, or the sizing just doesn't fit over my large glutes! The material is beyond amazingly cozy and stretchy. Plus not to mention the style is super cute. I am definitely going to order some more!
These shorts are great. They don't dig in, they have enough room for the muscles AND fat on my thighs (I'm a size 33 with a 28 thigh). You may want to size up if your thighs have some fat on them like mine. The 32 was comfortable at the waist but dug in on the inside thigh in a way that wasn't flattering, though it felt fine. 33 fits great, though.
I absolutely love these shorts. I have been lifting for years and I always end up buying shorts too big that make me look fat, or shorts too small that make me look fat. All because I have thick thighs and a big butt (thank you squats)...but a smaller waist. It was a constant battle between buying shorts that fit my butt and thighs, or my waist. With the barbell shorts, they fit me everywhere!!! Only complaint is...they need more colors so I can have a dresser full!!
Most comfortable pair of shorts in my closet! Love them!
I've been doing crossfit for about 6 months, so I'm a relative noob in that regard. What I'm not new to is having ample quads, hammies, and glutes. It seems like no one gets the concept that not all folks have thin legs and thick waists. Also, some ladies want an inseam longer than an inch, while enjoying a slightly higher waist, for a tailored look. I feel like I've found my "forever" shorts in barbell apparel chino shorts. My only qualm is that while the stretch and lay of the material is spot on, it's a bit fuzzy/static-clingy and attracts people hair, animal fur, and any other dust in the vicinity. Not a huge deal if you have a lint roller, but it would be cool to have a somewhat smoother texture.
As far as sizing goes, I used the measurement chart to ensure I had the right size and the waist ended up still being a tad too big. Still a vast improvement from any other shorts I've tried, and I'm not complaining that these are a tad loose rather than too tight--just means I get to move down a size for my next order. :)
Amazing soft material, no gapping at the waist, unique blue that matches like a black.
Really appreciate the thigh measurement on size chart to get the fit right.
