Allston Shorts

Our Allston/Bell Lap products are made from our most compressive fabric and are meant to fit close to the skin. If you are between sizes, we recommend sizing up. Measure your waist by wrapping a measuring tape around your “natural waist”, which is traditionally near the belly button and the smallest part of the waist. Measure your hip by wrapping a measuring tape around the hip at the largest part of the hip, taking care to keep the tape even all the way around the hip.

Waist 23-25" 25-27" 27-29" 29-31" 31-33" 33-35"
Hip 32-34" 34-36" 36-38" 38-40" 40-42" 42-44"

Compressive Fit

Combining sleek and comfortable compression with temperature-regulating breathability, the 5.25" Allston Shorts’ Italian-made fabric blend offers the highest performance when it matters. At the cuffs, we use silicon grippers to ensure these tights won’t ride up or dig in.

Carrying Capacity

The short tights feature simple storage, streamlined with one external drop in pocket for fuel along the rear yoke. The ergonomic design allows for easy access from the top of the waistband, an ideal entry point to complement a fast run, from the mile to the marathon.

Quality & Comfort

The silky-soft construction is finished with a high waistband, ensuring secure coverage. The Allston Shorts have also been updated to allow for a more comfortable fit throughout the waist, hips, and thighs, adding ease without impeding on the compressive quality of the design.
