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.
