Love it

These are good to work out in but also comfy enough for general use or under a dress.

Rachel Evans
Perfect fit and extremely comfortable

I already had the leggings and I had been waiting for the shorts to come back in stock for ages. I love them. I love the colour as they're proper black, they're super soft and comfy, and fit like a glove!

Yvonne Atherton
Very happy daughter who is fussy with clothes!

I bought for my daughter, who finds it hard to find clothes to sit perfectly on her waist, the fit was perfect, and she loved the feel of the fabric, and how it sat on her, she also said they were perfect for dance class, as she attended a dance class that day, and found them perfect. As a mum also happy as they do not ride up the leg, like some brands of shorts can do, so no need for pulling them back down. They also washed perfectly. Very happy mum and daughter, and daughter definitely wants to add to her collection, with leggings, so will be buying more, and delivery was very quick

The best gym shorts!

I normally avoid wearing gym shorts but given how hot it has been recently I thought I would give them a go. I am so pleased that I did, they are amazing, so comfortable, flattering, soft and do not budge during a workout! They are also a really nice length, I am very very tempted to get them in all three colours!

Shorts black

Love this brand!
For me the shorts are super comfy and a great material
However my personal opinion would be wearing them on a lazy day and not at the gym this is purely because I’m not a big fan of the length (like shorter shorts on the leg in the gym as they look better on me) and I don’t like the middle seam down the front 🐫.
I would definitely recommend these as a comfy pair of shorts if the middle seam doesn’t bother you!! Perfect for us petite girls
