By now you probably know to do your research before trusting TikTok,  (lest you damage your under eyes with Preparation H or slurp a less-than-satisfactory "healthy coke"). Still, the allure of TikTok trends is hard to resist, and you may even end up discovering a savvy hack.

Take the Aurola High-Waisted Running Shorts for instance. Presumably created as a dupe for the Gymshark Hyper Amplify Shorts, these bike shorts have acquired a kind of TikTok stardom in their own right for their ultra-soft material and booty-contouring scrunch detail. "Oh my god, this is so freaking cute," content creator @julissa.fashionista exclaimed in a try-on video featuring the shorts. "It has good compression in the belly area, I feel like it does a good job of cinching the waist, and the back is so flattering. It makes your butt look so nice." Another TikToker, @strongarmenianprincess told followers to "run to Amazon" to grab a pair. And at $28, it's as enticing a deal as any, especially considering the Gymshark version has been completely sold out for weeks after it went on sale for just $16.

These silky-smooth shorts are stretchy, breathable, and chafe-proof thanks to their seamless design made from a lightweight blend of nylon, polyester, and spandex. Most notable is the scrunched stitching on the rear, which pulls the butt up and adds noticeable definition. The high waistband also adds extra coverage around the midriff area and lays flat along the tummy without bunching.

Better still, Amazon reviewers have confirmed that this pair of buzz-worthy bike shorts is worth the TikTok hype. "As the proud owner of five [Gymshark] Amplify shorts, let me tell you: These are better," wrote one shopper, adding that they "feel amazing" and "look so good on." Another initially skeptical reviewer agreed that the shorts are "freaking amazing," noting that the "booty scrunch isn't too tight" and can handle a full squat. A final fan called them "the best shorts ever" because they have "just the right amount of compression" and are "very lightweight but squat-proof."

To shop these butt-lifting shorts for just $28, you can head to Amazon and add a pair (or several) to your cart.
