Biker shorts…basically leggings but for warm weather! These have been trending for a few years now, but it took a bit of time for some of us to muster up the courage to actually bring these babies into our closets on slip them on 😅! However once you try them, you probably will not want to go back because… HELLO COMFORTABLE. Between workouts, travel, or just lounging – biker shorts are here to stay in our rotations! We are sharing our favorites by inseam here along with some styling ideas!

Speaking of COMFY, have you tried activewear dresses?! See our faves here!

4″-5″ Inseam

Hannah’s Biker 5″ Shorts [5’2″, typically a XS/S or 0/2]

Biker Shorts [size up if in between, wearing in Medium] // Denim Jacket [size down if in between, wearing in XS] // Tee [size down if in between, wearing in XXS] // Sneakers [true to size]

Debbie’s 5″ Shorts [5’5″, size small or 4, Spoon Body Type]

Biker Shorts [size up if in between] // Similar Top

These 5” biker shorts from Aerie are my favorite! I love that they have big pockets on both sides! The fabric is really soft and they don’t cling and cut you off. I sized up to a medium but they have a lot of stretch so you may not need to. I’m 5’5” 135 lbs.

Devon’s 5″ Biker Shorts [5’8″, size S or 2]

Sweatshirt [true to size, wearing small] // BALEAF Biker Shorts [true to size, wearing small] // Sandals [true to size]

6″ Inseam

Erin’s Maternity 6″ Biker Shorts [5’4″]

Biker Shorts [true to size, wearing in small] // Similar Sweatshirt

If you too are expecting and are looking for a pair of shorts that won’t lead to uncomfortable chafing approximately 30 minutes after wearing them, you need a pair of biker shorts. This pair to be exact. They fit over your growing belly perfectly, are so comfortable, and a great length at 6″! I will be wearing these for the next several months as my belly keeps growing [and post-partum]!

Jen’s 6″ Biker Shorts [5’7, size M/6]

CRZ YOGA Womens Naked Feeling Biker Shorts 6″ [True to size, wearing M]

Claire’s 6″ Bike Shorts [5’5″ size M/L or 8/10]

Bike Shorts [6″ inseam, size up if in between wearing Large in True Navy] // Graphic Tee [runs big, wearing medium] // Sandals [TTS] // Belt Bag // Hat

Heather’s 6″ Shorts [6′, size small or 4]

Shorts [true to size] // Tee [true to size] // Sneakers [true to size]

Heather here with my go to biker shorts! I have tried quite a few pairs on my hourglass 6′ frame and I always reach for the Lululemon Align 6″ shorts. They are so comfy and stretchy. I love that they don’t dig in at my legs or waist like other pairs I’ve tried. The 6″ inseam is great on my 6′ frame, but they have an 8″ length as well!

Sthefany’s 6″ Shorts [5’2″, size L/XL or 12/14]

Shorts [true to size, wearing L] // Top

Old Navy’s biker shorts are absolutely fabulous! As someone with a mid-sized body, I must find a pair that fits comfortably and doesn’t ride up. These shorts are my current favorites of the season because they are extremely soft and accentuate my curves in all the right places. With a 6-inch inseam, they are the perfect length to avoid tight rubs.

Lauren’s 6″ Biker Shorts [5’6″, size M/L or 8/10]

6″ Biker Shorts // Tee [size down, wearing in small] // Sandals [true to size]

Aundrea’s 6″ Biker Shorts [5’11”, size 2X or 20]

Shorts [true to size] // Bra Tank [true to size]

Devon’s 6″ Biker Shorts [5’8″, size S or 2]

Sweatshirt [true to size, wearing small] // HeyNuts Biker Shorts [true to size, wearing small] // Sandals [true to size]

7″ Inseam

Biker Shorts [7″, size large] // Tee [size up for oversized fit, wearing large] // Long Sleeve Tee [runs large, wearing size medium] // Belt Bag // Hat // Similar Sandals

Katy’s 7″ Biker Shorts [5’4″, size XS or 2]

Biker Shorts [size up if in between] // Sweatshirt [size up if in between] // Sneakers [true to size]
