Basketball Shorts Frequently Asked Questions

Many athletes wear compression shorts under their basketball shorts. Compression shorts are a tight-fitting short (also called short tights, or leggings) made with stretchy fabric. They hug the body like a second skin, and stay in place so you can focus on the quick cuts and movements the sport demands. The compression fit adds a bit of pressure to the leg muscles, improving stability and endurance.
Basketball shorts are long and baggy to allow for comfortable movement in all directions, and to layer tights or short tights underneath. The long and baggy style was popularized in the '90s, and the trend has become synonymous with B-ball style since so many people love the look.
Basketball shorts for men are made out of lightweight fabric like cotton, polyester or a blend. They may have a bit of elastane for stretch. The materials come together in a variety of weaves, like doubleknit, mesh, piqué and fleece. These comfortable, sporty fabrics are why basketball shorts are so popular with men and women on and off the court.
