Looking for exercise shorts to boss your sessions in? You’re in exactly the right place. Made with the perfect balance of performance and personality, the Bo+Tee exercise shorts are all you need to get in your workout wardrobe for hot and sweaty sessions, plus warmer weather exercise. 


Whether you’re smashing an at home HIIT circuit, feeling strong doing weights in the gym or chilling out at yoga, our collection of exercise shorts for women help keep you cool and comfortable on the go. And now the sun’s starting to appear with spring and summer on the horizon, it might be time to say goodbye to your trusty gym leggings and opt for something breezier.


Searching for the best exercise shorts for women can be a hard task – there’s all sorts of questions you want to tick off your list to make sure you find the perfect pair. For example, you might be wondering what length shorts are right for you? Do you prefer the length of mini shorts, cycling shorts or something more loose fitting? Where can you find shorts that stay put on the waist? And what fabric is best? What colours or designs will help you smash your workout and look good doing it?


Don’t panic, because we’re here to help you find the best running exercise shorts around from our very own Bo+Tee collections. Keep reading for everything you need to know and all the inspiration for finding your perfect pair of shorts.



Seamless, stretchy, squat-proof fabric.


When you’re squatting, lifting, thrusting and abducting, you want a fabric that’s going to feel as good as it looks. We’ve made all of our exercise short sets with super stretchy, seamless fabric that is designed to move with your body. If all that’s not enough, our fabrics are made with innovative properties like sweat-wicking, which helps to evaporate moisture on the go. Quick drying fabric allows you to focus on the workout at hand, keeping you super cool.


Squat with confidence in our exercise short fabric, which is thick, super stretchy and feels soft on the skin. Most of our exercise short fabrics also fit close to the body, hugging your figure in all the right places. They’ll also sculpt and contour your curves and accentuate your best bits, plus the seamless construction means no uncomfortable seams will dig in or distract you while you exercise.


While all our fabrics are super soft, we’ve varied the feel of them to suit you and your workout. Go for buttery soft, slinky shorts for that barely there feeling, or feel comfortable and sculpted in soft ribbed knit constructions. We’ve even got double layer styles to get the best of both in the gym. 



Mini or cycling exercise shorts? You decide.


At Bo+Tee, we have two main lengths of shorts you’ll love to work out in. Cycling shorts are our longer length style giving extra coverage, usually finishing around the middle of the thigh. This way, you can be sure the high points of your thighs are covered and supported but also get the unrestricted feel of exercise shorts. 


Also known as biker shorts, these nineties-inspired bottoms are perfect for wearing not only in the gym but also with oversized tees, ankle socks and trainers on rest days. Try Super Sculpt or Luxe from our collection for a fit you’ll love.


Prefer that barely there feeling? Go for a pair of our mini exercise shorts. Cut super high on the leg, these running shorts elongate your legs and are perfect for a long run outside or racking up the miles on a treadmill. Whether it’s Super Sculpt or Ribbed exercise shorts from our collection, pair your mini shorts with a coordinating crop top or an oversized sweatshirt for chilled weekends.



Go shorty! Exercise short styles you’ll love.


All you need is a quick search of our website to find just how many styles of exercise shorts we’ve got on offer. From different cuts, fits and shapes, you’ll want to check out our versatile designs to fill your kit with. From curved and v waist, high rise, tie front and bum sculpting designs, here’s some of the best features to look out for…


Stand out in our exercise shorts with bum ruching, contouring panels sculpting effects that’ll accentuate your glutes. Lots of our exercise shorts are available with booty-lifting features so you’ll be ready when leg day comes around.



To ensure you hit every workout with confidence, all our running shorts for women are made with high-rise waistbands. Not only will this cinch the waist and give you that hourglass figure, but high-waisted exercise shorts will also help you feel supported and secure during every move, as the band will firmly stay put.


Whether it’s a simple, straight waistband, flattering v shape or curved, we’ve also got a range of waistbands to suit every figure. Our waistbands with tie detailing also allow you to tighten to loosen as you like for your preferred fit.



 Colours, prints and more.


Along with great style and fit, Bo+Tee’s range of designs will perk up your sports kit. Boost your next sweaty session with vibrant colours, or keep it cool and classic in failsafe dark shades.


If you’re going hard in the gym and know there’s an intense session at hand, you can’t go wrong with classic black, navy or charcoal colours. Black running shorts are a no-brainer to work up a sweat, as the dark hue will help disguise moisture and marks. You’ll be able to power through with confidence in darker shades, so try navy, charcoal or chocolate.


Running shorts for women are perfect for spring, summer and warmer weather, so brighten things up with lighter colours and neutral shades. Our white, sand and blush shorts are so versatile to pair with lots of other different colours in your workout wardrobe. 



Go bright and bold in our most vibrant colourways; there are pretty pinks, bright blues, zesty greens, fiery oranges, sunshine yellows and more. Wearing colour is an instant mood lifter, and we guarantee choosing one of our louder colours will help you smash your workout. Plus, most of our bright shorts have crop tops or sports bras to go full matching colour, or switch it up and clash your colours for a standout exercise shorts look.


Take things one step further and shop our choice of printed shorts and speciality fabrics. There are acid wash and jacquard designs to mix up your lineup, plus zebra prints and two-tone and tie-dye styles to wear funky exercise shorts both in and out of the gym.



When performance meets personality.


Bo+Tee activewear is designed with performance in mind, so there’s no surprise that our exercise short range will help you look and feel your best. We’ve made our exercise shorts with the very best design features in a range of on-trend styles so you get the best of both worlds.


Whether it’s a stitched logo, brand tab or printing, every item in our shorts collection is also complete with Bo+Tee branding, so you can show us off while you exercise. Most of our shorts are also designed with matching items so you can look well put together in the gym with little effort.
