Even as the ongoing Summer season reaches its sweltering zenith, you can still find me in my trusty full-length black leggings. I love the idea of running shorts, but I’ve always found them to desperately cling to my legs and bunch up in all the wrong places. I have, however, started to realize their practical benefits, namely ventilation and a remedy for heatstroke.
In an attempt to loosen the everlasting death grip I have on my binding, high-waisted leggings, I’ve rounded up some curve-friendly workout shorts that don’t suck. They’re tight in the right places and loose in the right places. If you’ve got a fuller bottom, these 14 shorts were made for you. They’re so cute, you might just ditch your leggings, if only for the Summer.
