People with different body types tend to have different opinions on the same clothes. The principle is especially true when it comes to activewear — who could forget the butt-scrunching leggings that polarized a nation? Needless to say, when I decided to review a pair of Outdoor Voices’ Instagram-famous bike shorts, I knew I couldn’t do it alone. You, dear reader, deserve perspectives ranging from petite to tall to curvy and everything in between. Today, that’s exactly what you’ll get.
Below, 11 InStyle shopping writers review their preferred shorts from Outdoor Voices. Some have been wearing them for the duration of the pandemic, while others tested theirs for the very first time this month. Their words capture the good, the bad, and the ugly of the experience. Each blurb is supplemented with the wearer’s height and shorts size for context, plus a selfie because we’re feeling generous.
Of course, not every body type under the sun is featured in this roundup, but we did our best to include a diverse range of viewpoints. Keep scrolling for everything you need to know about wearing the internet’s favorite workout shorts IRL.
