less is more! how short shorts are cut for modesty too - slightly longer at the back so you can feel confidently covered. pair with a so simple tank that has a built in shelf bra for all in one goodness. the breathe-ability of our soft organic cotton will keeps you feeling fresh too!


 button thru strides are comfy and cute - the curved waistband is super flattering and sits in just the right place throughout your practice while maintaining that uddiana bandha. match with our button or fresh as tank - un-restrictive for cultivating a strong pranic breath.
