If you know the magic of our high waisted leggings then you'll understand our need to make them up as cycling shorts. We've kept the deep doubled over, high-rise, waistband whilst reworking the seat of the shorts and legs around the thighs, to shape without digging in; giving the peachiest fit possible!

If you're new to Burnt Soul or just new to our leggings and shorts then read on! Due to the doubled over waistband, these babies will need a little wiggle to get on. Don't be scared... they're built for a lot of hugging and will soften with wear. The sizes don't vary over different styles but the fabrics do and each has its own unique characteristics. The Joan, for instance, is way firmer than her eco bestie the BFF. We have added our stretch-o-meter alongside each of the colourways to give you an idea on when is best to size up and when to size down. 

All of our custom shorts are cut and made in our Bristol studio by our small team of Lycra fairies. We try and keep a good stock of these fabrics available throughout the year but there may be the odd occasion where we're unable to fulfil a request within the time period requested. We will be in contact at the earliest possible occasion if this is the case. 

The standard process time is up to 10 working days unless you choose otherwise. As these are made as a custom product then certain fabrics will be non-returnable. We are planning on introducing the Joan, Neon Panther and BFF into stock soon so these styles will be returnable.

Hand wash your Lycra outfit in cool or tepid water using mild detergent. 

Drip dry away from direct heat and sunlight and do not dry clean or tumble dry.

Tackle stains straight away by quickly soaking the stain in cold or tepid water and rub small amounts of mild detergent to the affected area - do not use hot water as this can set the stain. 

To remove strong smells fill the sink with cold water, add a cup of baking soda and soak for no more than 1 hour. Drip dry as above.


We recommend hanging your Burnt Soul’s up when they’re not out causing mischief, especially if they’re more delicate foiled pieces.

Do not fold and put in a draw when damp - this will cause damage to any foils and could transfer fabric dye to other garments.


We love using glittery, shiny and holographic fabrics… as much as I’m sure you love wearing them! They do tend to need a little more attention than your average pair of leggings though. Whilst we always buy the highest quality of sparkles and foils we can find, if they are being worn and washed as an every day item of clothing then the foils may dull. If you’re looking for longevity or to use for fitness then it’s best to go for catsuits without liquid foil paneling. If you'd like more help choosing the right one for you then send us a message here.

keep oily liquids away from the reflective panels. The reflective panels are made by coating the lycra in minuscule glass beads. this makes it hard to get out oily substances once on the fabric. The good news is that it will have no effect on the reflective glow it gives out so you can continue shine bright where ever you go!
