There’s something about a matching workout outfit that just makes you feel more put together. Even if you’re spending the whole day lounging around in spandex, when you’ve got a combo that looks genuinely cute together, it’s enough to trick your brain into thinking you actually got dressed for the day. And, well, once you discover how much space you’ll save by storing these types of sets with the “burrito method,” you’ll never go back to pulling mis-matched workout-wear from your drawers again. For the warmer weather months, nothing beats the aesthetic and feel of a bra and biker shorts set.
With summer—and hopefully, a whole lot of soft-clothes lounging—in our near futures, we rounded up some of the cutest warm-weather sets you can find. Scroll through for some of our favorite bra and biker shorts set options, and prepare to feel highly styled for both your workouts and couch sessions alike.
Below, shop 10 bra and biker shorts set options for a cohesive summer workout and lounge look.
1. Girlfriend Collective
Made from recycled water bottles, Girlfriend Collective’s workout wear is just about as durable and supportive as it gets. You can mix and match the brand’s sets with different colors, sports bra styles, and shorts lengths, and with sizes ranging from XXS to 6XL, there is truly an option for everyone.
This terra-cotta-colored set would look right at home on a summer hike. All you’ve got to do is add a hat and a fanny pack, and you’ll be ready for some seriously adorable ‘we made it!” snapshots at the top of the trail.
You can’t go wrong with classic black bike shorts, and you’ll want to wear this high-waisted, squat-proof pair everywhere from the gym to the grocery store. Wearing them with a matching, longer-line tank top, like this one, will make you feel like you’re wearing a full-blown (and dare I say, Zoom-meeting appropriate) outfit no matter what activity you’re engaging in.
4. Outdoor Voices
With a 10-inch inseam, these shorts are sure to be chafe-free, and the brand’s matching Double Time Bra is known for the comfortable compression it offers. Stick with a classic shade like black, blue, or gray, or amp things up with this poppy pink.
This seamless style is just about as comfortable as it gets, and thanks to its artful design it will never, ever cause chafing. The top toes the line between being a sports bra and a full-blown shirt, and makes for easy wear for any sort of summer plans you’ve got on deck.
6. Alo Yoga
This candy-colored set will have you embracing summer brights for all your June through September workouts. Despite the bra’s delicate-looking design, it offers stabilizing support, and the shorts are sweat-wicking and stretchy enough to move with you.
7. Solid & Striped
Cult-fave swimwear brand Solid & Striped recently dipped its toes into the activewear world, and the results have (pardon the pun) blown us out of the water. This ribbed set adds a pop of colorful fun to your usual black staples with pastel seams on the sports bra, making it subtly more fun than your standard monotone style.
8. Sweaty Betty
Not the matchy-matchy type? Sweaty Betty’s bike shorts and sports bras come in a range of prints and colors, which you’re encouraged to mix and match to create a custom, DIY set that’s totally tailored to your needs.
9. Left on Friday
Forget your go-to jean shorts. This summer, you’ll want to pair your bikinis with these beach friendly bikers, which will comfortably carry you from your volleyball game to nap time to toasting marshmallows over the bonfire. Plus, Left on Friday’s tops are equal parts bathing suit and sports bra, which means you’ll feel supported in them both in and out of the water.
I acquired this particular short set earlier this month, and it has quickly become one of the only things I want to put on every morning. The fabric feels like straight-up butter, and the rosy shade earns dozens of compliments whenever I step out the door. If you’re looking for something more lounge-friendly than workout-proof, this is the perfect pick.
