by bikegirl612fromGreat idea, terrible constructionI loved these at first, especially since I could hide them under any jeans, yoga pants, shorts or skirts, but I have quickly realized the chamois in them is poorly designed. The seams are placed in all the wrong spots and have led to chaffing on more than one occasion. I also find the rubber on the waistband to be uncomfortable and sticky feeling. The overall fit is correct. I am 5'8', 140lbs and the medium fits well. I wish I would have figured this problem out sooner so I could return them, but I think it is too late for that.

by ddtheriaultfromNice But Not Good EnoughI love the fact that it doesn't have the grippers on the legs. They are really comfortable but couldn't make it on a 56 mile ride. It was good up to 35-40 miles but after that it just didn't have enough padding on the sit bones.

by PedalEverywherefromFair product, needs more paddingThe shorts feel a little loose but it is a comfortable loose. I think the padding is a bit thin especially if you are a new rider looking for something to make your ride more bearable. I like the material the shorts are made from it feels nice.
Keep in mind these are quite short and to prevent chaffing need to be worn under shorts or pants while biking.

by ceiliambfromGreat LinerUse these for casual rides, around 20 miles, and are perfect. May need more padding for longer rides. The only thing is I wish you had them in a nude color to wear under lighter colors. Everything doesn't have to be black. They really expand fashion choices for riding.

by JuJu8fromJust what I was looking for!This product was exactly what I was looking for, thin padded bike shorts to be worn inside my clothes. It's also the perfect size for the vertically challenged (short) people. I'm 5'1 and petite framed, most bike shorts are too long for me or they just don't fit right.

by Nature FreakfromNice Bike ShortsI had never purchased padded bike shorts since mine and my husband's biking is sporadic. We made a trip to the northwest where we did smooth but some hilly biking and these shorts were great! They're soft, lightweight, didn't ride up, and had padding in the right places. They're even pretty and feminine for an athletic short. I definitely recommend them.
