Definitely not basketball shorts…

I’d rather be comfortable yet fashionable because I don’t believe in going through any pain or discomfort just to be labeled as being “in fashion.” Therefore when I gained a few pounds and kept shoving myself in that small pair of shorts, my uncomfortable love handles were not having it so what’s a girl to do? Size up in the women’s section? Nope. Instead, I opted to wear men’s gym shorts!

First comes to mind are, basketball shorts which is baggy enough to fit me but at 5’3″ I might as well be wearing it like a skirt. Good thing I managed to find regular pairs of men’s gym shorts, better yet they were ON SALE!

I noticed the following differences between male and female gym shorts;

1. The pockets are large enough to carry a compact wallet, to include keys.

2. Gym short design provides a loose and comfortable fit.

3. The color scheme used tend to be heavy toned such as black and/or grey with only hints of lighter tone colors within its design.

4. For the best fit, personally try it on since the conversion between female to men sizes vary.
