After months of quarantine, we’ve all gotten used to comfortable clothes (see: wearing the same pair of sweatpants every day for a week). The cozy trend is continuing, and for summer Amazon shoppers have found a cool alternative to sweats: a pair of $20 bike shorts that gives your booty a nice lift and has just the right amount of compression around the waist. 

Until now, the bike-shorts-as-normal-shorts look was mostly reserved for celebrities and those with an air of boldness in their sartorial choices. But we’re all starting to realize that, more than anything, this look is about comfort — and with an ultimate goal of feeling like we’re wearing pajamas all the time, we’re starting to get the appeal of wearing bike shorts with just about anything.

The Baleaf bike shorts taking over Amazon have an impressive 4.3-star rating from over 6,800 reviewers who love them for their versatility to wear out and about, under dresses or skirts to prevent chafing or during exercise. They’re available in 14 colors, five lengths, three materials and sizes XS to 3X so you can get the exact fit and style you want.

“I bought these shorts not for exercising, but actually 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!),” writes 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.”

Another happy reviewer says 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 8-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. Not once did my phone pop out. 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.”
