Happy Son

We live in the desert yet my son seldom wears shorts even when temps are over 100 degrees.

In an attempt to get him into shorts I purchased the American Defender Shorts 2.0 (Avalanche) for him!! He wore those bad boys for two days straight and loves them. He wore them out and about, wore them for his outside chores and even for his gym workout. He wants more pairs now!!

Best workout shorts out there

I have tried lots of different athletic/workout shorts over the years and these are hands down the BEST out there. Super comfortable and durable material for the toughest workouts. Love the many different color schemes of camo & patriotic colors. I normally wear a 31” inch short and the 30” size fits me perfectly so they do run a tad bit bigger than normal in my opinion. Fantastic shorts!!!!

Measure Your Rib Cage:

Measure around your rib cage just under your bust. Round down to the closest inch. This is your rib cage measurement, which you’ll need to figure out your band and cup size.

Figure out your band size:

Take your rib cage measurement from step 1 and read across the chart below to find your band size

Rib Cage Measurement Band Size
25" - 27" 30
27" - 29" 32
29" - 31" 34
31" - 33" 36
33" - 35" 38
35" - 37" 40
37" - 39" 42

Figure out your cup size - This is a 2-step process:

First, measure around the fullest part of your bust. Keep the tape straight across your back. Round up to the nearest whole number. This is your bust measurement.

Now, subtract your rib cage measurement (step 1) from your bust measurement (step 3). The difference in inches is your suggested cup size. If you’re between sizes, round up.

Bust Size Minus
 Rib Cage Size
Your Cup Size
3" AA
4" A
5" B
6" C
7" D
8" DD
9" E

Calculate Your Size:

First, measure around the fullest part of your bust. Keep the tape straight across your back. Round up to the nearest whole number. This is your bust measurement.

Now, measure your rib cage. Subtract your bust measurement from your rib measurement. The difference in centimeters is your suggested cup size. If you’re between sizes, round up.

2.5 CM= A | 5 CM= B | 7.5 CM= C | 10 CM= D | 12.5 CM= DD | 15 CM= E

Fit Guidelines:

Every bra serves a different purpose for different activities and we recommend referencing each specific bra product description to determine the best bra for your body and sport. Our bras should generally fit snug. Wearing the bras too loose will not likely provide adequate support.

***Please note, a majority of our sports bras are medium support and medium coverage. If you are looking for the highest impact support that we offer; check out the X-Factor, Intensity or Moxie Sports Bra!
