Best Yoga Shorts for Men


Updated May 16, 2014

Do you wear short shorts? If you do Bikram yoga, the answer is probably yes (unless you are wearing a Speedo, not that there's anything wrong with that). Followers of other yoga styles tend to like their shorts a little longer, so here's a range of yoga shorts for men, from the long and baggy to the short and tight. If you prefer to cover up a little more, check out these yoga pants for men.

Is a long, lightweight, loose-fitting yoga short your style? Then look no further than be present's Baja Short. Made from a slightly stretchy, quick-drying fabric, these are casual shorts that you won't mind wearing out and about.

2. Prana Momentum Shorts

Your very basic, go-to cotton shorts with a bit of stretch. Unscientific data (meaning me scanning the room at yoga class) suggests this is the most popular men's short.

A shorter version of the Baja Short, with many of the same features but cut above the knee. With a built-in brief, these can also double as swim trunks.

4. Yoga Crow Swerve Shorts

Along the lines of a basketball short, but a definite upgrade for yoga. A slimmer (but not tight) cut, stretchy fabric, pockets, and a built-in boxer-brief make these a dude pleaser. Yoga Crow specializes in men's yoga wear, plus these shorts are made in the good ol' U.S. of A.
