RTwrote a review of Giro New Road Mobility Tailored Shorts - Women's on August 6, 2015
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
To be honest, I know these are bike shorts, but I bought them as regular shorts. They are made of an incredible soft material and they are stretchy which makes them probably the most comfortable shorts I have ever owned. The length is great - they aren't super long/boyish, but they also aren't the 2in inseam that is for some reason (beyond my comprehension) the "in" style. The front pockets are for show, but don't worry, because the back pockets can fit your phone if need be. I have these in the twilight blue which is a really nice color that goes with a lot. I am considering getting another pair.
These run small, if you normally wear a 2 or 4 in generic clothing opt for a 6 (the size you probably wore before all the stores remapped sizes so we would feel better about ourselves).
I highly recommend these for general summer activities - and I imagine they are good for biking too -but I opted for the "Giro New Road Ride Tailored Overshorts - Women's" as my biking pair since they are longer and do a good job of hiding my chamois without making me look like a 12yr old boy.
