You can pay a lot for lycra shorts, and it makes some sense if you're a cyclist - extra cushioning and the like. For running, though, these are just the job, light, non-irritating, seemingly sturdy enough, they've done me a good few runs now without any sign of chafing.

The insubstantial nature of the fabric does tend to display your goods to the world, however. I just wear them under rugby shorts.

I ordered these on Amazon from Precision Sports and they arrived very quickly within a few days.
I bought these to wear under my shorts to stop chaffing while training. They have done that. The shorts are well made but at first looked too small and I thought I'd have a problem getting them on. I've never worn Lycra shorts before and was surprised at how stretchy they are. The fit is perfect and I quickly forget I'm wearing them. I can't say or see how a significantly more expensive pair could be better as these seem perfect especially at the price I paid.

...and some of them costing upwards of £50. I bought these and they're absolutely perfect. Comfortable and they stay in place well even when sprinting, squats, burpees etc.

The only improvement would be a small pocket but at this price it's not a complaint at all. I'll buy some more now I know how good they are.

BUT.....

Now some months on after buying these shorts there is a big problem. They are fine for my circuit training and stuff like that but for long runs they actually rub at the back where the seams meet, enough to make me bleed. So be very careful when ordering that you won't be wearing them for long runs.

I bought these months ago for wearing whilst on my Concept2 indoor rowing machine. I *think* the description has changed since then but I definitely got the impression that they were seamless. That feature's important to me - a seam and a long row and I end up with a rubbed-raw sore bleeding bum! Hence to date I've never worn these things whilst exercising. The box states they're an undergarment but, again, I don't think that was made clear at the time I bought them (the online description does make it clear now, I see).

As previously explained or implied in another review of similar a product I play rugby and have recently taken up jogging on a treadmill in a gym to maintain some sort of fitness (whilst staying in the warm). I have had issues with groin strains and hamstring pulls through the years which weren't very nice. As I'm now jogging everyday I want to avoid strains and I was also experiencing friction burns from the inside seam of my shorts. Undershorts seemed the solution to everything and happily they have been, they also keep my ham strings nice and warm whilst jogging. These specific undershorts fit well are sufficiently tight without being too tight and cover my legs down to the top of my knees so keep some support on the back of the knee which is nice. I like them, they fit well, they seem to withstand constant use and do what I bought them for, a good buy, I recommend them.

Lycra shorts are so very expensive when buying any sorted of branded pair. I just wanted something that I could wear beneath my running shorts to keep me warm and prevent unwanted friction. As expected the shorts are tight (very tight) and so I am glad that I went the size above my actual waistline. They definitely would not have fit otherwise.

In terms of comfort, the shorts do have quite prominent seams running around the waist and down the leg. Unfortunately, this has meant I still have to wear an undergarment to prevent painful rubbing at the bottom of my back and on the leg (more expensive brands are seamless and so can be worn as an undergarment). Apart from that, they are like any other pair I have worn. Also, within a week, one of the ends of the toggle tie had come off and so begun to fray. It also disappeared into the waist and so I spent a good 20 minutes trying to fish it out.

Although this review might sound overwhelmingly negative, the real winner is price. They do the job and that's what you are paying for I suppose. I still wear them everyday, and after four weeks of running they are still going with no signs of wear. For that, they get the four stars - you have to compromise!

I was looking for some shorts which my Partner could use for football. He had always worn the Nike Pro lyrca shorts but you were lucky to get change from £20. We thought we would give these a go and he found them so comfortable that we ordered another pair.

Good value for money and would definitely recommend to others

Having just started to run 5K on the treadmill, I needed a pair of lycra shorts to wear as underwear, we all know the problem with cotton underpants when training, not good.
Somebody said to me have you tried using lycra running shorts as an undergarment, I hthought why not give it a go.
I have dropped down from a 36" waist to a 34" waist so ordered the 34-36" shorts.
They feel great when running, more to the point you forget about that area and can conentrate more on the running and achieving your goal. After trialling my first pair I immediately went back and ordered a second pair.
Be careful when washing as they run (excuse the pun), I handwash mine and then spin them in the washing machine, works a treat and doesn't ruin anything else in the process.

I have used these type of shorts from well known brands and much more dearer and like anything , you can pay what ever you can afford and make what you may of the benefit to justify the price paid.

I bought three (3) of these at once,and i had never used them before, and i am so glad i did. The fit is perfect, the feel is good and the comfort is wonderful. I am a 34 waist and bought the 34/36 wasit and they are beautiful. The do exactly what it say on the tin, work.

As we are all different and want different things, all i can say to anyone looking at these products is, buy one, try it and you will,undoudbtedly be ordering more, and the price is just right.It saved me money and i have several to chose from.
