What is Senita?

This brand was created by two sisters in 2015, with the goal of providing great activewear without high price tags or multi level commission structures.

I posted about my first haul (Nora windbreaker, Dynamic pullover, Swift shorts) a few months ago.

I was so pleased I went for a second and third (I’m slowly replacing my existing activewear from a different brand), so here are some of the best bottom half items under $50 I have tried recently from Senita Athletics:

Studio Skin Joggers ($43)

All of these items are under $50 and, though Senita has limited release items, there is no concerns about urgency.


  • Polyester/Spandex blend
  • Ultra-Soft, 4-Way Stretch, Skin Fabric.


  • Semi-fitted
  • Available in short (25 inch), regular (28”) and tall inseams (31”)
  • Cuffed around the bottom hem
  • Seamless waistband- lies flat like leggings (NOT paper bag style)
  • Open side pockets

Marathon Shorts ($31)

These shorts run true to size and the pocket on the lower back is big enough for your phone. The petal leg opening is very flattering and the 2.5″ inseam is perfect for runners.

Personally, I don’t love these as much as the Swift 4 Shorts (pictured above with the Dynamic Pullover) but that’s because they have a brief liner.

If that’s not a dealbreaker for you, this is as close as it’s gonna get to Lululemon Run Speeds for about half the price.

They run true to size but if you’re in between sizes, go up.

The inseam here is 2.5 inches, just like my beloved Lululemon Run Speeds, though they are half the price (and with the combination of a boyshort liner, win in my book!).

If you missed the post about the Swift shorts, here is a video review for comparison:

High Rise Rio Shorts ($26)

These shorts come in a variety of styles- low rise, high rise, maternity 5″ inseam, 7″ inseam, and even varying fabric blends (Lux, Skin).

Real talk: I should have sized up.

Shockingly, they were great for running and did not eat my thighs at all but if I wanted a pair for anything other than performance I would need a size up.

Compression is great for performance, but for daily wear? If you don’t size up you are going to have a busted can of biscuits scenario.

Even though these weren’t a sizing slam dunk for me, they remain on this list because of the variety and functionality.

It’s really hard to find a style shorts like this that doesn’t ride up.

When I partnered with this brand originally, all of my running friends nearly busted down my door over these shorts and I understand why!

Commuter Pants ($44)

These do not look frumpy, which makes them better than pretty much every atheltisure brand’s version of “comfortable workwear”.

They look sleek for work, church, or date night but can also be paired with chucks if you want to dress up casually. I love the thick material and vertical ribbed texture (read: slimming!).
