The first Burnt Studios Shorts, The Manila! They really are a GAME CHANGER! These shorts are no-ride, squat proof, mid-waist and the perfect length!

This product has been a year in the making. We tried, tested and designed every aspect of these shorts to be everything you ever needed shorts to be.

We have added a feature to the short to ensure that the legs do not ride up. We have tested this with every type of exercise. Your shorts will not ride up in the gym doing burpees and lunges or for a long run!

These shorts are 100% squat proof. We used the same fabric as our long tights, giving you a firm, sleek fit. The Manila shorts are mid-length with an in-seam of 10cm. It is not at all too short and not too long either. 

Our signature white line is added to the waistband for an additional slimming effect and our orange tag adds a striking element to the design. 

These shorts also have a pocket in the back of the waistband for your keys or gym card! 

They feature a mid-rise, reinforced waistband that ensures they stay exactly where you put them and it looks very flattering around your waist! You will never have to worry about anything sliding down or running up!

Made from performance fabric that is 73% polyester and 27% spandex. This is a great combination of durability, softness, elasticity, and comfort. 

 PS *Consider sizing UP!

NOTE: The size guide for the short differs from the long tights. The shorts are a bit tighter on the thighs because of the RideStop silicone strip. We suggest that you make use of our size chart to confirm your size. But if you are unsure, opt for the larger size xx

Love these shorts!

As promised - these shorts are squat-proof! Super comfy, great quality. Would definitely recommend following instructions and going one size up on your normal fit. Also the whole purchase/shipping process was well communicated and quick. All round thumbs up.

Comfortable, No creeping up

I received my Burnt shorts over a week ago and it has been a breeze. They never creep up whilst trailrunning and plus they hug my figure so comfortably.

Just remember to check the sizing before you buy, because they have a silicone strip on the inside that make it tricky to get on if the size is too small.

But, I am usually a S and purchased a M, knowing this, and I’m happy.

Perfect!

These shorts are amazing! I'm an Irish dancer and our whole studio is in love with everything Burnt. These are the only shorts we can really wear and feel comfortable & confident in, that don't ride up or fall down when dancing! Sizing up is a must though :)

Burnt is by far the best activewear brand - comfortable and incredibly well-made, not to mention their classic and timeless style. And locally made!

Well worth saving for - you won't regret it!

Cute but tricky

Excellent style and quality, and the length is exactly what I wanted, but that silicone strip on the thigh really complicates the sizing unless perhaps you have a very straight figure. Be extra careful and check the measurements.

I'm an XS so I sized up to an S. The waist was perfect but the silicone strip made the thigh so tight it cut off my circulation and made my cellulite visible. I exchanged it for an M (great customer service here btw). The thigh fit comfortably, but the waist was looser and I can't wear it high-waisted as I hoped.

I'm petite but slightly curvy with a small waist, round bum and muscular thighs, so this design doesn't quite suit my figure, even though I like the shorts overall. Also, I don't think I've ever actually had a problem with my shorts riding up, so I wish I could have bought the Manila without the silicone strip, and I wouldn't get another pair that included this feature.

Great design

I love these for the simplicity of design and the functionality.
I would however recommend if you are gifted in the tight area like me to consider sizing up for a comfy fit.
But yet again another amazing purchase from my favorite activewear brand !
