3 5

high rise

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

These shorts have a very high rise (crotch to waist length). Aside from being uncomfortable for any kind of bottoms, It's especially annoying when you are bent over on a bike. I liked the fabric, nice and light, with a nice stretch to it. And I was willing to forgive the awkward looking color blocking to have a lighter color pair of shorts (tan and black vs all black for riding in the hot desert sun). I wear a women's 14 to 16 depending on the brand and while I could technically wear the XXL, it was not cut very well for riding a bike unless you really like pulling your waist band up to your ribs. A touch wider in the thighs would have been nice as well.
