The Cleo shorts are my new favourite shorts - the only I'll be buying in future.

As a petite girl, I've really struggled to find shorts for working out but Ally and Ava Activewear have just nailed it. I became aware of Avo through Instagram, and Ally (the founder) very kindly reached out and offered to answer any questions I might have. While I knew I was going to buy leggings, when I saw the shorts, I couldn't resist going for those first. They arrived perfectly packaged and I've worn them a couple of times since - buttery soft, amazing fit (inseam and fit on the thigh and waist is ideal) and beautiful colour; also very comfortable to work out in with good but not crazy tight compression. Love! Will be buying black and navy along with leggings too. Thank you Ally and Avo!

Highly recomend

The shorts are excellent - they are a really comfortable fit, lovely colour, tight enough to pull you in a little on the tummy but they don’t do that horrible thing where they make your thighs bulge. I will certainly buy more!

Unbelievably amazing

These shorts are so incredible. The colours are gorgeous, they’re so soft and buttery, the fit is unreal - I’m in love. I literally don’t want to wear them because I love them so much and want them to last forever. They’re so incredibly soft, theyre so flattering and I’m in love!!!!

Flattering, comfortable

High quality material - comfortable, flattering and a perfect length!
