The Best Bike Shorts For Big Butts And Thighs

These mountain bike shorts are adorable but, ugh, there's a huge gap at the back.

If I can't wear a belt I'll be pulling them up all day or showing off my faded 20-year-old tramp stamp and ass crack to everyone who rides behind me.

Fine. I'll try on one size down to see if they fit.

Dammit. Now I can barely get them past my thighs...

Whyyyyyyy, bike short gods, why?!?

If the above scenario sounds oh too familiar, you found the right blog today, my friend.

Sometimes it can feel as though the fashion industry has overlooked women mountain bikers with hips and thighs.

When you finally find a pair of bike shorts that fit perfectly over your thighs, you have to deal with a gaping waistband. And vice versa.

Well, I'm here to share there are bike shorts that fit a curvier body. Thanks to generous waist adjustments and some roomier fabric with lots of stretch, you have options.

There are bike shorts to fit your gorgeous booty.

In fact, there's more than one. I know, right? Impossible!!

I wouldn't dare lead you on my bootylicious friend.

You may have heard me talk about these bike shorts before because I'm still elated they even exist.

As someone with a small waist and bigger butt and thighs, I can't get enough of these shorts. And there's plenty of colors and styles to choose from.

I present to you three pairs of women's mountain bike shorts that will glide over your muscular thighs, peachy bottom and fit wonderfully around your hourglass waist.

Be gone back gap!

The Neaveah

These mountain bike shorts by Zoic have everything you need to hit the trails.

Waist adjustment, yep. Big pockets to carry your phone, snacks, poop bags, car keys... and whatever else you need, you betcha!

I have the Green Camo and LOVE them. They do fit small according to the size chart. I'm considered a small in these, but I wear a medium. It givess me the room I like in the thighs without being tight around my waist.

For reference, I'm 5'9" with 40" hips.

Something else to consider is the fabric. The camo shorts have slightly heavier fabric than the Naveah and Naveah Print. But overall, you'll love how good these shorts will look on your booty and the extra roomy hips.

Savvy

These bike shorts by Club Ride Apparel are just so damn cute and they have tons of stretch which makes them easy to wear.

For reference, I wear a size medium in these shorts, with lots of room to spare. And if you remember, I have 40" hips.

One of the things I love about these shorts is their versatility. They're made of super lightweight, quick-drying material so they work awesome as board shorts or dog walking shorts on hot days.

They look fabulous with a tee or a bike jersey. Wear them biking, paddleboarding, or sight-seeing. And with eight colors to choose from, you'll find a pair you love!

Flow

I LOVE the Flow mountain bike shorts Revel Rider.

They have a long inseam - 13.5", high waist, the fabric is soft and stretchy, and they have huge pockets -- I'm talking MEGA pockets -- on each thigh to carry your plus-sized phone, trail snacks and whatever else you need to stash.

These shorts fit on the baggy side so you don't need to size up, even if you're on the upper end of the size range. The red color is no longer, but I'm anxiously waiting for Revel Rider to release a new blue colorway.
