Check out our full size chart above ⬆️Our shorts are super flexible, the elasticated waistbands have a lot of stretch. If you're inbetween sizes we'd recommend dropping down for sure.
We all train BJJ at Progress and we know what you expect when you buy shorts from us: long lasting quality, comfort and style. We can say from experience, our shorts are the real deal and the real customer reviews only back us up.

Although all our shorts now have anti-bobble technology, we always recommend washing your Progress shorts on a cold wash. If you have to wash hot, please do not exceed 30 degree.
