Sportswear, but make it fun (and ethical!) (and recycled!)
Introducing our Dustin Cycling Shorts - made from 88% Recycled Polyester (from plastic bottles) and 12% Elastane. High waisted, cropped above the knee. Great stretch, silky soft fabric in a great rich Teal colour!
Recycled polyester is great because...
- it saves plastic bottles from landfill or the sea
- it's super soft
- less energy is used to create polyester yarn from recycled bottles than is needed to create brand new polyester yarn from oil
But nothing is perfect....
- all polyester garments shed microfibres when washing them. To prevent this, use a guppy bag to catch the microfibres - we sell them at a small loss to keep the price accessible, get one here > guppy bag

I usually am over the moon with my L&Y purchases however after lusting after this pair for a while I am a little disappointed with them on arrival. The material seems very delicate and seems to snag on everything and after 1 delicate wash has already started to bobble on the leg... very sad as I was really excited for these to arrive!
The sizing on these is totally different than the long Leggins. The waist band was tiny and weirdly not stretchy at all.
The "crotch area" on these is different as well (and not better...)
Colour is pretty tho
Tried wearing them for yoga a few times but they're just uncomfortable...
These soft highwaisted longlegged shorts have become my favourite go-to for aerial training/performing - great by themselves or under/over costume, they're a perfect combination of waist-thigh coverage plus luscious colours, easy to wash (in guppy friend bag!) and super comfy!
