Frequently Asked Questions about Women's Running Shorts

Why do women’s running shorts have a liner?

Running shorts for women have liners for support and coverage. A liner also means you don’t have to wear underwear — underwear can chafe skin or be uncomfortable, but liners are designed to be lightweight and breathable while avoiding chafing. Longer liners, or built-in short tights, provide compression support in addition to coverage. They also help keep your muscles warm on cooler runs. 

Do running shorts matter?

Running shorts make a difference, especially if you’re planning to run regularly. Wearing running shorts matters because they’re made of lightweight materials designed to handle sweat, often with moisture-wicking technologies like adidas AEROREADY fabric. Women’s running shorts can have liners that help avoid chafing and add breathability. Running shorts are designed to make it easy to move. They often have side hem slits or overlapping hems for full range of motion. A lot of running shorts also have details like reflective hits to help with visibility and secure pockets for your key or phone.
