Answers to all the frequently asked questions about SleeperBear shorts
Here's the scoop on some of the questions we get asked the most.
What's special about SleeperBear shorts?
Everything: the fabric, the patches, the pattern cut, and the construction are all originals, dreamed up and made from scratch! They're designed for all-day wear with a very comfortable cut you won't find anywhere else. Plus, the fabric is astonishingly comfortable and soft: you'll feel like you're floating in a cloud. They are individually handmade in the USA by artists.
How often do you release new shorts?
Just one each year! Every spring we release our new designs. For each collection, we do very limited runs. Be sure to subscribe to our email to find out when the next shorts drop before they sell out.
How do I wash my SleeperBear shorts?
As you would any other pair of athletic shorts. Just wash and dry with like colors.
What is the fit of the shorts?The shorts' fit is loosely inspired by boxing shorts, and they come in four unisex-friendly sizes: Small (translates to a typical women's 0-4), Medium (6-10), Large (12-16), and X-Large (18-22). They run slightly larger than typical women's shorts (especially in the leg/butt area), and have a very flexible soft waist. They're a touch shorter in length than typical men's shorts. Based on previous male-identifying customer purchases our sizing translates 1 to 1 with men's, so if you wear a men's small, you can purchase our Small. If you prefer longer shorts, go a size up. They include:
- 2-inch soft elastic waistband
- 2 deep-front pockets that can hold an iPhone and keys
- 16 inch length & 5 inch inseam (size Medium)
