Bike shorts have come a long way, baby. And they're not just for cycling anymore! 

Worn straight up for a cute sporty look or beneath a dress as a silhouette smoother/chafe preventer, they have become a summer wardrobe staple. 

And we've found a pair that goes the extra mile: Amazon's wildly popular $20 Baleaf High Waist Bike Shorts are booty-lifting, flattering and they have pockets! I repeat: Pockets!

This Amazon superstar ranks No. 1 in three women's shorts categories and has earned an incredible 37,000-plus five-star ratings!

With 28 colors, three lengths, two materials and sizes XS to 3X to choose from, you can find the exact fit and styles you want. The hard part will be narrowing down your faves. (And yes, at this price, you will be buying multiple pairs.)

And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? Let's fix that: You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And even those without Prime get free shipping on orders of $25 or more).

So many ways to love them

Shoppers rock them in a variety of ways: jazzed up with a cute top, hidden under dresses (for modesty, don't you know) or paired with a tee for exercise. 

"My kind of short," said one happy reviewer. "I refuse to stop wearing these. Not only have I found a million cute ways to style them, but they are also super comfortable.... If I could, I would order a pair for each day of the week."

Comfort is key

Customers are also grateful for how comfortable and flattering the Baleaf short is. (Note: The high, wide waistband means no more muffin top!) “I bought these shorts not for exercising but for the sole purpose to wear under dresses to help keep the dreaded chub rub at bay (you ladies with thick thighs know what I mean!)” wrote a five-star reviewer who showed off the shorts in photos. “To that end, they did their job! The shorts are soft and very stretchy, and as an added bonus they helped keep my belly under wraps as well as protect my thighs from chafing under the dress. You can’t tell I was wearing anything underneath.”

Fit for fitness 

These moisture-wicking, breathable bike shorts still serve their original purpose too: athletic wear. And they do it so well. A happy runner said the shorts are “ultra-marathoner approved,” and that they “held up every step of the way” during races in the hot summer months and even the Chicago marathon. “I wore them for the first time during a 10K race (took a chance) and they served me well. The high waist keeps my tummy in place. The eight-inch inseam is a comfortable length on my thighs — not too short or long. The legs didn't ride up, either. The pockets were perfect for my big phone.... Perfect thickness of fabric — passed the squat test (not see-through when squatting). Several of my runner friends were interested in them for themselves. I immediately bought another pair in navy.”

Whatever occasion you need them for, these bike-and-beyond shorts promise to be there for you.
