Hi friends! After putting together a blog post about how to wear biker shorts (here), I got several questions about the difference between the lululemon, Alo and Beyond Yoga biker shorts. At the time, I hadn’t gotten the lulu biker shorts in so I couldn’t answer any questions regarding the fit or quality of them. However, I’m coming back to update you guys as I just got them in yesterday. I thought it would be helpful to share the comparisons and talk about what makes each different from the other along with my personal preference after trying on all three. Towards the end of this blog post, I’m sharing two biker short outfit ideas. Before I dive into each pair, here is a quick overview of the three biker shorts I’ll be reviewing:
The material of these is similar to the Beyond Yoga shorts. I would describe the feel as buttery and soft. These are the shortest lengths out of all three brands. These shorts are available in 6 and 10 inch. I’m wearing the 6 inch. But keep in mind, I ordered the 8 inch Wunder Under Biker Shorts and I thought they were too long. All in all, if you’re looking for a shorter length pair, I think you would love these!

At the end of the day, these Alo biker shorts are my favorite. If you guys have not bought a pair of bike shorts yet and you’re wanting just an all-round basic, I suggest getting the Alo pair. I love the length and fit of them. It comes to about mid-thigh and for reference, I am just under 5’7″. Another plus is I think these Alo shorts offer the most compression of the three. It also comes in a lot of color options.

Next to Alo, these are my favorite. I LOVE my full length Beyond Yoga leggings. If you guys have a pair, you know exactly what I’m talking about – so, so soft. These are even softer than the lululemon alight shorts. The fit is flattering and offers compression as well. These are my longest pair. They’re longer in length than the Alo shorts, but just by a little bit.
