Compression Shorts

Compression Shorts are designed to be tight fitting. For those athletes that prefer a looser fit or are in between sizes we suggest going with a larger size, this will also allow for a little growing room

Velvet Stretch Shorts

Our velvet shorts fit a bit looser than our compression shorts. We suggest purchasing a size smaller in velvet shorts for a snug fit.
