Summer running has never looked this good. We merged our best selling fabric with the functional design of our Speed Shorts to bring you our Faster Than Light Short. These shorts fit and feel like a glove, with improved sizing adjustments from our Speed Shorts. They are a Summer training staple, and scream runner girl.

- No front seam 

- Reflective logo on the back

- Flattering back "V" seam to accentuate the glutes


Inseam measurements:

We do NOT believe that one size fits all, which is why we use a grading method for our inseam measurements. This allows the shorts to look and feel the same on all sizes. 

Inseam Grading of Spandex Shorts:

xsmall- 9 cm

small- 10.2 cm

medium- 11.4 cm

large- 12.6 cm 

xlarge- 13.8 cm



- Runs true to size. If you are in between sizes, we recommend sizing up.

Absolutely worth the hype (& money!)

Ok, THIS is the pair of shorts I've been looking for. Something without a middle seam to prevent chafing, a short that truly doesn't move. And - I don't mean doesn't move only after your sweaty (90% of all other shorts I've tried that "don't move".) No. These are compression shorts and truely don't move throughout your whole workout. I would give these 6 stars if I could! And. Duh - pockets! Just great. I can't say enough good things about these! For reference, I'm 5'1 on a good day and approx. 108lbs. I ordered the XS. I almost thought they might be too small - but I prefer that they stay put, so these fit nice and snug! I definitely prefer these over the divergent shorts. I find those shorts are not as compressive as these, and those ride up on me. Not these!


AMAZING fit, I love them! And it doesn't bunch up when running??! What? Unheard of I know! I bought them in every color because of the fit and feel! My favorite shorts ever!

The Perfect Shorts

I had been looking at these shorts for a long time and finally bought only regret was not buying them sooner! They stay in place during runs and I love that I have room for my phone, key, etc. without having to readjust them every few minutes. Can't wait to purchase another pair!

Best running shorts

I absolutely adore these shorts. I got them in blue, black, and coral. For some reason my blue pair is a bit bigger than the other two (size is the same), but I am honestly ok with it. The blue ones ended up just being my comfy ones while the other two are for running now.

I am usually a 6 at Lulu and got a medium.

These don't usually budge around my thighs, but sometimes the top comes down a small amount, but I have a fairly small waist for the size of my butt, so that is pretty expected. Overall I LOVE these shorts. I can have gummies, phone, keys, and safety stuff in my pockets comfortably.

I prefer these shorts over the divergent shorts by a long shot!

Amazing fit and comfort

These shorts and bra combo might just be my new fav! The sizing is exactly to be expected (I ordered the size I normally ordered and it worked great) The support of the bra is great, the comfort of the set is amazing. I want to wear it everyday!! Definitely need more sets!
