    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these high shine leggings - so flattering Really flattering leggings, totally love these! Perfect for cycling.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sexy shorts! I love these high shine shorts and wore them a lot through the summer just out and about and also for yoga.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cycling shorts Bought these for spinning. A little disappointed as they show perspiration quite obviously - especially around the bum area. Not very attractive and not the usual Sweaty Betty standard. I have other shorts from SB which are excellent. Disappointed.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from So tight! So tight and stiff I could hardly get them on, let alone cycle in them. Definitely order at least one size bigger. Sent them back, still waiting for a refund, after chasing three times now. Very disappointing all round.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the shine. Yes yes and YES! Felt fabulous wearing these for hot yoga (even if they are cycling shorts). All my items are XS from SB (I'm a size 6/8), these are on the tighter side to my others. Perfect leg length, no riding up. Definitely recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Love Love I love love love these! The fit is perfect (I’m a size 8 and I bought xs), the comfort is superb, and they’re glossy and stylish too. I’m going to get them in the blue colourway next.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely longer-length shorts I bought these shorts as I wanted a pair to run in. I'm a little self-conscious of my legs, so I didn't want SB's super short shorts. These are a really nice length, sitting about an inch and a half above my knees. To be honest, they feel very comfortable and hold everything in place that I'm even tempted to possibly go a little shorter - 7 inch maybe! The reason for only four stars is that these shorts don't have a side or back pocket. I love the pockets on my powers, as I put my keys and phone in my leggings. But overall, good purchase!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed, not the quality they preach. I bought these shorts less than a month ago and the fabric already lost its stretchy "special feature" after a few washes (following the label instructions). They look old and the shorts are longer and loose even though they are brand new. Definitely not worth the price as the quality is not as expected - truly disappointed as I thought I was buying quality products with Sweaty Betty! Do not recommend :(

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy Comfy and a good fit. Light colour means it shows every mark.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flattering shorts Really comfy great colour and very flattering though I’m an XS I bought a small it was a nicer fit around the legs I’m 5’2 so they finish just above my knees ideal for me using them for Different types of exercise

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from bring back the 90s baby! I am absolutely over the moon with these shorts. They look fantastic with a baggy tee and a really great 80s/90s vibe. Just need a matching scrunchie. Really show of tonned legs.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good fit but avoid the light blue I wanted the black version but as they were out of stock tried the light blue. The fit was comfortable and they looked good while initially on. Unfortunately after a sweaty HIIT class they had very unattractive sweat patches on the crotch! So I would only use at home or for lighter workouts. Will definitely buy the black ones if they restock though because otherwise I was very happy with them.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tight and long These are lovely shorts. Maybe just not what I wa a looking for as they are really long and the waist comes up super high. I love high waits but these are an extra level. Pro is the never fall down or ride up your leg. And are very black, not see through at all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product vs service Product is very good. Especially if you guess right with the size at first attempt. If not, you might not be refunded as it has happened with me

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for long walks, but sewing already coming un I bought these for long walks and hikes than rather than workouts, after reading the reviews. They were great for walking and very comfortable. However, after the first wash the sewing has started to come undone which is disappointing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great shorts Great light weight shorts ,I wear mine for running and yoga. The colour is lovely and they feel soft.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High shine shorts Love theses shorts for running. They hold everything in and they don’t ride up. Really comfy and on trend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable & stylish Now I have a padded bike seat, I was able to ditch my old unflattering padded cycling shorts and replace them with these very comfortable and stylish ones. Love the high sheen - just what I was looking for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for a summer workout Stylish and comfortable. I have the high shine 7/8 leggings and they are fitted and sleek. These are just a shorter version for a very hot day for running or cycling.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Figure hugging & non see through! These shorts are fab. Really thick without being constricting, wash well and you can just tell they are amazing quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Obsessed with these! I bought these as an everyday pair of shorts as it’s been so hot and I love them! They’re super high waisted and flattering, and a great length for me. The colour is different but still goes with a lot. I’m wearing these a lot! #teamsweatybetty

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I never usually write reviews but was unusually disappointed in the shorts. The fit & feel was great - good start. However, I use them for running and since I live in Texas currently I get rather sweaty on my runs. The shorts show water marks terribly so I look like I’ve wet myself each time I wear them.
    Date published: 2020-07-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the best! Worth the money, they sit perfect! You won’t go with any other brand! So comfy and perfect for yoga!
    Date published: 2020-07-17
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Favourite shorts to run in I love these. Really really comfy. They’ve kept their stretch perfectly after many many washes. The only reason this gets 4 rather than 5 stars is that a little hidden pocket somewhere would make them even better!
    Date published: 2020-07-15
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pocket please and re-stock the high shine bra top! Love these but can only wear them on the Peloton plus I bought the matching hi shine top - you seem to have run out? Why not offer them as a set? Picture - top and shorts

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shorts Really nice shorts, they don't ride up. I got a size 'M' good fit around the leg , bit big around my waist but has the built in cord. Would be perfect if they added a pocket.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect short for summer! I have these shorts in both the blue and black and they are ideal for summer workouts or just wearing casually for walking. They are fully squat proof and super stretchy which is great, plus really high waisted which I prefer. I love the shiny fabric, it just makes them a bit different. Definitely recommend, I style mine with with either a stamina bra for a sweaty workout or a white t-shirt for a relaxed vibe #teamsweatybetty

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering and comfy Been after these shorts for ages but my size was out of stock. They were worth the wait; really flattering, comfortable for running and Hiit. Just what I wanted for the summer. Go well with loose fitting t shirts as well to wear amour and about.
    Date published: 2020-07-10
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Run a little small compared to the leggings These run a bit small. I have a lot of the high shine leggings and thought the fit would be similar so got the same sizing. I got an XS and found that these are a bit tighter. Overall love the look of the shorts though. These will be my goal shorts. :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super shorts Comfortable and a perfect length. Use them for cycling and they are great.
