You can wear leggings for workouts all year long. But once warm temperatures arrive, you might find yourself wanting to wear something a bit lighter. If you're currently shopping for a new pair of running shorts that have many of the same easy-to-wear qualities as a great pair of leggings, don't miss out on this best-selling pair from Amazon.

With over 2,700 five-star ratings, the BMJL running shorts are an Amazon best-seller in their category. They're made from 95 percent polyester and 5 percent spandex and designed to move with you. Plus, just like comfy leggings, they have an elasticized high waist—but with a little ruching for added style. The shorts are available in sizes XS to 3XL in 24 colors that range from bright and bold to pastel and neutral.

"Better than all my Lululemon shorts easily," wrote one five-star reviewer, who added, "I've told everyone who will listen, these are the shorts every woman needs."

The high-waisted style even has a zippered side pocket that can hold your phone, keys, and credit card while you work out. "It's very deep, so [you] can store bulky keys in it and exercise without worry," said another shopper, who titled their review "Lululemon dupe."

Plus, whether you're wearing them shorts to run, lift, or practice yoga, their soft fabric wicks away sweat to keep you comfortable.

"They are flattering, comfortable, and really breathable," shared a different reviewer, who likes to wear their shorts while paddle boarding because "they dry really fast."

Whatever you're planning to do in them, the BMJL high-waist running shorts will keep you comfortable even when temperatures peak this summer—and you might just reach for them even more than your favorite pair of leggings.
