We love and appreciate a good pair of leggings, but as the weather begins to warm up nothing compares to quality bike shorts. As their name implies, these '80s-inspired staples are perfect for training and cycling, however thanks to celebrities like the Kardashians, Sophie Turner and Hailey Beiber, bike shorts have become a permanent fixture in summer street style.

When it comes to athleisure and athletic wear, no other brand does it quite like Lululemon. Thanks to their superior technical performance and design backed by the science of feel, the brand continue to raise the bar with their latest bike shorts.

Classic meets comfort with the new Align Shorts ($58), designed with the brand’s signature Nulu fabric. The buttery fabric delivers that next-to-nothing feeling with the confidence of support, coverage, sweat-wicking and four-way stretch — just what you need for the best fitness and yoga performance.

These trendy new bike shorts have been called the “best shorts ever” by Lululemon customers who have given the Align Shorts a solid 4.5 out of 5 star rating.

“The Align material is just as - or even more soft as my leggings. I love having these shorts to lounge in, especially during quarantine. They are my go-to’s for workouts and streetwear. They are definitely an easy pair to dress up or down. I’ll have to get a couple [of] pairs in different colours!” read one five-star review.

“Amazing! Have the Align leggings and they are my absolute favourite. I am 7 months pregnant and was in need of some serious comfortable shorts for summer. I ordered my normal Lululemon size and they fit so well and are so comfortable. Already debating grabbing a second pair,” another customer wrote.

Aside from their impeccable fit, the Align shorts are available in a wide range of colours, sizes and lengths: 4", 6" and 10". Each length features adjustable waistbands that lay flat, won't dig in into skin and have a hidden waist pocket.

The Align Shorts have a super-high waist - for something closer to a mid-rise, we suggest opting for Lululemon’s City To Summit Light Cycling Short ($98).

“These are AMAZING. The softest material- truly feels like butter. It basically feels like you're wearing nothing and I love it. I want to wear them all the time! The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is the inner seam is sometimes itchy and the waistband is too high for my preference. It goes well above my belly button. If these were the exact same short but just reached my belly button they would be 5/5 perfection. But they're close enough!” explained one reviewer.
