If you’re looking to stay active this season, going for a jog around the neighbourhood is an easy way to get moving, and doesn’t require any equipment other than a pair of your most trusted running shoes. 

We’ve come a long way in terms of performance activewear over the years, so if you did want to upgrade your workout gear there’s never been a better time. With an almost infinite amount of choices in terms of fit and fabrication, there’s a style out there for pretty much everyone to enjoy. 

One style of shorts has shoppers raving about their superior fit and comfort, and at just $58, they’re a pretty affordable way to change up your summer workout style.

What is it?

Lululemon’s bestselling Hotty Hot II Short features a loose design that fits comfortably while you’re on the move. With a low rise and wide cut leg, they have plenty of extra room for you to run freely. 

Lightweight Swift fabric contains four-way stretch to keep up with your every move, and wicks away moisture to leave you feeling cool and dry. Available in 15 different colours and patterns, the shorts come in sizes 0 to 14, and come in two different lengths - the original 2.5” inseam that hits at the top of the thigh, and a longer version with a 4” inseam for added coverage.

Both lengths do come with the same convenient features, including a secret stash pocket in the liner, a zippered pocket at the seam, and reflective details to keep you safe during night runs. 



What shoppers are saying

The Hotty Hot II Short is a fan favourite among the store’s legion of devoted shoppers thanks to its comfortable design and fun variety of colours. So far they’ve racked up a solid 4.1 star rating based on over 1,700 reviews, and are the current best-selling item.

“I bought these shorts to work out in at Orangetheory. I love the length and the style,” one reviewer shared. “They move with my body and everyone stops me and asks me about my shorts. I get so many compliments!”

“Awesome running shorts! I've recently been struggling to find shorts that don’t slip during my runs and these shorts definitely don’t,” added another. “The pockets are nifty and the shorts overall fit nicely and are good quality.”

Many reviewers noted that these shorts tend to run small, so if you’ve never worn Lululemon shorts before or have worn an older version of this style, you’re better off going up a size or two in order to find your preferred fit.

“These shorts are great! Only problem I encountered was sizing,” explained one reviewer. “I wear a 6 or 8 in Lulu leggings (all styles). With these, I had to size up to a 12! The 8's suffocated me [and] the 10's could have worked if I wanted them to be tight, but I like my shorts looser!”

The verdict

If you’re looking for a new pair of comfortable yet functional shorts that can take you from your run to the couch and everywhere in between, look no further than the Hotty Hot II shorts.

Just be sure to pay close attention to the sizing charts before purchasing, and to size up if you are loving for an even roomier fit.
