Amazing Shorts!!!

As a larger distance runner living in the south, I cannot overstate how important having good quality shorts are to my training plan during the summer. Normally, it is next to impossible to find a pair of shorts with the proper amount of coverage to prevent chafing but still light and breathable enough to not be stifling in the summer heat during my long runs. But these shorts do it all! Plus they have an awesome pocket for my cell phone. In fact, I was so impressed by these that after a few training runs, I immediately went back online and bought 4 more pairs in other colors. Born Primitive please keep making these!!! This will be my go to for as long as you make them.

Game Changing!

I was never the type of person to wear shorts while working out. I am 5'4" with muscular legs and glutes; most shorts would ride up on me while I was lifting. I decided to give these a try after some encouragement from my husband. I am so glad that I took a chance on these shorts! They are comfortable, have a flattering fit, and are long enough to keep me covered. I loved them so much that I went ahead and bought the other pair of Cadence shorts in Aquastone. If you are looking for the next staple in your workout wardrobe, these shorts are it!

Run small

I really wish Born Primitive would have options for taller curvy girls. I was super excited for these shorts, but the stitching is so tight in all the seams, it’s an awful look. I’m 5’11” and a size 14 and am an active athlete. The seams squeeze in such an unflattering way, I have to return them. 😞

Measure Your Rib Cage:

Measure around your rib cage just under your bust. Round down to the closest inch. This is your rib cage measurement, which you’ll need to figure out your band and cup size.

Figure out your band size:

Take your rib cage measurement from step 1 and read across the chart below to find your band size

Rib Cage Measurement Band Size
25" - 27" 30
27" - 29" 32
29" - 31" 34
31" - 33" 36
33" - 35" 38
35" - 37" 40
37" - 39" 42

Figure out your cup size - This is a 2-step process:

First, measure around the fullest part of your bust. Keep the tape straight across your back. Round up to the nearest whole number. This is your bust measurement.

Now, subtract your rib cage measurement (step 1) from your bust measurement (step 3). The difference in inches is your suggested cup size. If you’re between sizes, round up.

Bust Size Minus
 Rib Cage Size
Your Cup Size
3" AA
4" A
5" B
6" C
7" D
8" DD
9" E

Calculate Your Size:

First, measure around the fullest part of your bust. Keep the tape straight across your back. Round up to the nearest whole number. This is your bust measurement.

Now, measure your rib cage. Subtract your bust measurement from your rib measurement. The difference in centimeters is your suggested cup size. If you’re between sizes, round up.

2.5 CM= A | 5 CM= B | 7.5 CM= C | 10 CM= D | 12.5 CM= DD | 15 CM= E

Fit Guidelines:

Every bra serves a different purpose for different activities and we recommend referencing each specific bra product description to determine the best bra for your body and sport. Our bras should generally fit snug. Wearing the bras too loose will not likely provide adequate support.

***Please note, a majority of our sports bras are medium support and medium coverage. If you are looking for the highest impact support that we offer; check out the X-Factor, Intensity or Moxie Sports Bra!

These shorts run shorter in length as you go up in size to more closely mimic our men’s training shorts which are a 7” inseam.
