Great stuff!

I just recently became a fan of wearing shorts during my workouts. After trying different brands, I was not sure about BP shorts. Giving them a try was the best choice I made. Great fit and material! This is my second pair and I plan on buying more in the future.

Awesome Shorts for Working Out!

These shorts are tremendously comfortable! They are lightweight, soft, flexible and breathable. They are great for doing CrossFit WODs involving lifting, biking or anything else involved in the workout. The liner stays nicely in place, and the shorts do not ride up my leg.

I love the pockets. The front two are plenty deep, and can easily hold a wallet or keys. My iPhone fits comfortably in the rear zipped pocket.

These shorts also look fantastic! They are very sporty looking.

I am so glad that my friend, Matt, who models for Born Primitive, introduced me to these shorts! I highly recommend them!

Great for running, crossfit, leg day, or any day!

I had always wanted to try these, but I'm usually hesitant to get shorts I can't try on first since my big thighs don't always mix well with the slim leg that has been in fashion lately. However, I took the plunge and I'm so glad that I did. The fit manages to be slim and flattering while still providing enough comfortable room for someone who never skips leg day. They stretch in all the right ways and the liner is snug enough to not go anywhere even on the highest of intensity workouts yet doesn't feel constricting. The length is just right. The overall sizing really is the definition of "True to size". The liner pockets don't seem like they should be big enough for a phone but they are. Zippered rear pocket is just the right size and location for my wallet. And the material and build quality is top notch. I would struggle to find and serious issues with these shorts, though my only minor quibble is that I'm not a huge fan of when the liner extends beyond the hem of the shorts, but somehow I can scoot the liner up my legs a bit to even it out and it STILL doesn't go anywhere (doesn't ride up or sneak back down), which I find to be really impressive. Seriously, some other brands could stand to learn from the design of these. I only wish they had more colors in stock right now but I'll add a couple more pairs as soon as I can. Wholeheartedly recommended!

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!
