I'm a little disappointed 😕 this was my first Popflex clothing purchase (legit obsessed with my mat!). I've been on the look out for the perfect black biker short and have had no luck. When I saw this was coming out in the Tropicana launch I was STOKED and had to order one for myself on day 1. I'm very cautious with sizing because I've had enough struggle with figuring out what really works. I chose the small, given the models sizing and the chart aaaaaand it just doesn't work for me. I'm typically a small (maaaaybe medium if not enough stretch) in active wear (5'4 and 118 lbs) yet this didn't fit in "all the right places). It was a struggle to put on, which I figured was just because it's fresh. The compression is too much for my liking and the rise is too high for my shorter torso as the compression hits right at the ribs. The look of the V shape is gorgeous, but is thick and rolls easily, and the leg holes in the shorts don't have much stretch to them so they dug into my legs. Also gave me camel toe which I was not expecting. I wore them for about an hour, so not sure if I can exchange or return :/ the material is super nice though and the length was so good. Sorry to say it just wasn't the best first impression.

why isn’t everyone talking about these shorts

I have never cared about a product enough to actually take the time to review it except for the really weird yelp review I made for the dominoes in my college town in 2014 UNTIL I BOUGHT THESE THINGS. These are the holy grail of biker shorts. I cannot stress enough how shocking the price point is. I used to buy lululemon leggings every time I got sad (10) and I was a FOOL because these are so much better. For half the price? Are you KIDDING ME? The fabric, let’s start with the fabric: Soft. Like actually butter. The sort of soft where you go to your friends and you make them rub your leg because they HAVE to know what you’re talking about. Then there’s the breathability. They are SO lightweight, but I never worry about snagging them and having them rip in half. I have no idea how they did that. And finally (and most importantly): the sculpt. Everything is sucked in. All of it. I didn’t know my butt could be that perky. Did I just eat a burrito larger than my head? Who knows? It doesn’t matter in these shorts.

Some people say they show panty lines. That doesn’t matter to me as much— just wear a thong. If anyone gives you crap for subtly taking care of a wedgie while you literally have skintight fabric on your butt they clearly do not understand the game.

Get the shorts. I hope they patented them. I would have purchased the leggings too if they’re as good as these things, but I still need to run those 10 overpriced popflex dupes into the ground.

Comfy Leggings

I sized up like Cassey said. They are a smidge too big I believe, but they are still amazing to wear and very soft. I think they are fine when working out, but they are also perfect to lounge in.

Hourglass legging 2.0

I bought the legging when I was XL as my first purchase at POPFLEX. Now I'm XS and I'm so happy this came as a short : represent a lot for me.

Turned me into a short lover

I never wear shorts because they always ride up, but these stay in place, compress my tummy and shape me perfectly. I am a believer now, just wishing there was a pocket
