Couple of things. I love these shorts, they are very comparable to lulu as they have a buttery soft feeling and a seamless waistband. I want to note that I have 2 other pairs of these shorts that are sold in this post - the camo and the purple. I found them and decided to buy the greenish color. They fit, but the sizing is off next to the mediums I have bought in the camo and purple. I attached pictures comparing the sizes. I understand that american and china sizes can differ quite a bit due to the china sizing can be smaller than a “true” american medium, but i just didn’t like how the green one fit, the waist band is too tight and the seams dig into my legs. I am going to return and see if a Large will be the same size as the medium in camo.
For reference -
size 4 in paints
I posted a picture of my size in the purple shorts for reference as well.
Love these shorts! They are comfy and flattering while holding me in and staying put during my workout! Soft material, no uncomfortable elastic waistband and a good Lulu dupe for a great price! I wish they had more color choices! I have so many of their leggings also, one of my fave workout brands. Follow me on IG @lisamlourenco for all things health and fitness!
These were probably my favorite from CRZ!
- great length
- no elastic seam at the top!
- fabric blend is comfortable and smooth
- love bottoms with the "V" seam above the bum, make them very flattering
- fit great, but I did size up
Overall these ranked very high compared to others. I purchased 9 different compression shorts in an attempt to find the best ones.
I got a large.

I found these after doing a google search for an align 4” short dupe because apparently they don’t make them anymore.... I usually wear fleo shorts or Nike pros but I wanted something that covered my butt a bit better and something a little more high waisted. However I do not want longer “biker” shorts and I wanted something seamless at the top.
These are not a perfect copy of the align- the seams are different and the fabric is closer to the “luxtreme” lululemon fabric, but those things are fine with me.
I just finished a workout in these and they are “squat proof” and stayed up the whole time. Even though I can tell the waist stretched out a little after, it’s totally fine because they don’t fall down at all. I pull the legs up so they are pretty short so I can’t speak to whether or not they would stay down lol.
I did notice they do show sweat a little bit- but I was sweating a LOT and it wasn’t that bad; and either way I don’t mind.
Super soft, very comfortable, definitely my new favorite shorts.
These are a perfect dupe for the lulu shorts . They feel buttery smooth like an align . I am usually very particular with My workout gear and like lulu and Alo but these are so great and so AFFORDABLE!The v in the back and the high rise makes them fit the way my lulus do. I do like that these are 3” because I wear them for hot yoga and Pilates and also can wear them under a dress for some added support . These also are great to prevent chafing because they don’t rise up on the thigh even with high intensity workouts. I got a small (I wear a 4 in lulu , small in pants, and a 26in waist) and found that these fit perfectly.
