Reviews for JOYSPELS Women's Biker Shorts High Waisted Spandex Yoga Workout Running Tummy Control Shorts with Pocket
People say Joyspels is really similar to Lululemon.
These are the perfect biker/workout shorts. Their quality is comparable to Nike and Lululemon. The ultra-high waist and mid-length make for a perfect fit! Anyone who is looking for great quality, trendy shorts, that are actually very comfortable, look no further! I would recommend sizing down, I originally got medium, because that's what the size chart recommended for a 26 waist, but they didn't quite hug my back as wanted. So the small was perfect!
comfy and flattering!
Just got my black pair today and I am in love. They are SO flattering and feel like butter. I am a total Lululemon lover and these honestly are pretty on par at a much more palatable price point. They ran a wee larger than expected but overall an incredible short for work out, relax, or fashion.
Before vs. after exercise - butter soft & comfortable but show sweat & underwear lines
Months later and these are still better and softer than LuLuLemon. Never pilling they’re AMAZING. I would definitely recommend these workout shorts. They’re pretty good and do the trick, just know they’re not really compression shorts and DO show sweat and underwear lines, even seamless subtle underwear. READ FOR EXPLANATION: PROS Theses are BUTTER SOFT. They are EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE AND FEEL LIKE VELVET THEY’RE SO SOFT. The lines on them are flattering and shape legs nicely to show muscle definition without adding width or bulk. They could definitely be worn as a casual loungewear short or under a sweatshirt as well as working out. They have decent tummy control and are nicely high-waisted (about 2-3” above belly button/top of hips). They are a nice length and are not loose per-se, but they’re not compressive they just sit on your body - which is nice for a casual workout (I returned a M in exchange for these Smalls which are still not compressive, but I’m 5’7” and 140# and usually a tight S or loose M). CONS They’re not compression which means they don’t really shape your bum, they kinda just sit there and don't add definition. They in-fact fit a bit loosely and just sit on your curves they don’t hug them or compress them at all so it will show if you have any lumps or bumps (see above about sizing). Secondly they’re NOT DRY-WICKING. The first 4 photos are before and the LAST 4 photos are POST-WORKOUT, and you can somewhat see I have MAJOR sweat lines showing in the front... Read More
Just what I was looking for
These are just what I was looking for! I’m picky about seams on yoga pants or shorts... these aren’t obnoxious or itchy at all, the seams on the butt are actually flattering. The waist is HIGH (thank you). I like the length because it’s mid thigh and not all the way down to the knee which I think is cute with oversized t shirts. I like the material, it’s soft to the touch, not too slick, not itchy. I compare everything to my Aligns from LuLulemon- they aren’t as soft as that material but aren’t as rough as the wunder unders. I am 2 months post partum so I’m between sizes right now but typically I wear medium so that’s what I ordered- these are tight enough but not squeeze your guts out tight- I’d be curious to see what the smalls feel like but they may be too tight.
Love at first feel
First: I’m 5’7 and 160ish. I’m usually a 6 in pants. I ordered a medium and while they fit, they’re right on the cusp of being too big. I also could’ve gotten away with a small. If you like more compression, I’d say go down. As an avid Lululemon wearer, I’m always on the hunt for comparable workout wear at a more comfortable price point. I decided to hope on the bike short trend and let me tell you that these did NOT disappoint. They are so, so soft. If you’re familiar with Lulu- they’re like a mix between Align and All the Right Places. They feel structured and thick enough to wear for squats, but they’re also so comfortable and can be worn lounging around the house. I’ll definitely be purchasing more from this line! 10/10 recommend.
BEST biker shorts!
I am obsessed with these shorts! They’re great for working out or just everyday wear. I have only had them for about a week and I have already worn them a bunch and I plan to buy more. They are fitted in the legs but not constricting or overly tight in the waist band area, which is really hard to find. I have been trying out a bunch of different options at this price range and these are by far the best. Very comfy and flattering, and not see through at all! For leggings, I typically only buy Lululemon but these have a very similar fit and feel. Overall 10/10 must buy!!
Mostly better than Lulus..
Love the feel of this fabric. Soft, buttery, luxurious, and quality-thickness. Love the fit too. Flattering and comfortable. I got two and will order more. I see a lot of people comparing to Lululemon. I’d say these are higher quality. The material is slightly thicker and stiffer, which is a good thing. However, for those more Apple-shaped, the waistband is not as forgiving as the Lulu Align material. If you have a tummy. It’ll suck you in decently, but the transition from shorts to tummy isn’t as seamless. You have more muffin top in these. A pleasant surprise is that the stitching that goes throughout the shorts is what I think gives the feeling that they’re compression. I am 5’4”, 145lbs, and apple-shaped. Usually between a M or L and I got a MEDIUM in this.
Lululemon / Athleta Dupe
I really like these! They feel almost identical to my lulu lemon and athleta leggings! I ordered a large and they fit well, not at all see through which has been a problem with other biker shorts i’ve tried. I think a medium could possibly fit because in some places the shorts are clearly a little big, but i just didn’t want to risk the medium being serious through. I wish the large fit a little more snug, i’m just worried the medium will be too small.. Bur overall, i’m very happy with these and they exceeding my expectations!
Lulu Align dupes!
I’ve been looking for biker shorts that are comfortable and flattering on my postpartum body, and these are it! I didn’t want compression, but was looking for a wide waist band. These shorts fit the mark...and I would even describe these as an adequate dupe for the Lululemon align biker shorts! They aren’t as buttery as lulu, however they are as soft and comfortable and figure flattering. The stitching also provides a slimming visual. I haven’t exercised in them, so I can’t speak to how they hold up to sweat and rubbing thighs, but they are great for lounging and fashion. Not see through!
If the In-Movement Lululemons and the Nike Pro shorts had a love child
These shorts are really a great option for those who like the fit and feel of a pair of full length high-waisted leggings but want the breathability of shorts! The waistband is high and doesn't slip down as much as some other leggings I own do. I have owned a pair of Nike Pros for years and wanted something similar but with that tummy control and a longer length- these fit the bill. Great for casual style and exercise attire. Order your normal size- they have the perfect amount of slight compression with your regular size.
