The Long And Short Of Sports Shorts

Sports shorts provide
flexibility of movement that is crucial to any sport especially athletics.
Therefore it is very important to choose the right kind of sports shorts- one
that provides ease of movement along with breathability and comfort.

The ideal shorts

The ideal pair of shorts is one that is lined with a soft
absorbent material that allows easy flow of air.  An ideal pair of
shorts is lined with soft light weight crepe material which protects against
abrasions on the skin. The absorbent material of the lining efficiently
prevents the moisture from accumulating in the folds of the skin. The
material also allows easy flow of air, making the shorts
breathable.

Length of the shorts

The sports shorts can be worn in various lengths according to your
convenience and comfort level.  The length varies from very short to
half way up to the knees. If your thighs scrape against one another while
running, it would be better to opt for longer shorts to guard against
abrasions.

Style of shorts

Many people tend to opt for the “unisex” shorts. Now that is daft.
Men and women are physiologically different in structure. The build of the
hips and waist are radically different and so the shorts must take this into
account.  Some shorts have provision for carrying the bare essentials
like snacks while running long distances. They have broad waist band with
pockets built into it. The shorts come in myriad colors and shades. Since
recent times the younger generation has taken to wearing loose fitting
shorts. This again is a matter of one’s own choice.
