Here's what others have to say...

Fascinating...my review of these shorts was deleted. Hmmmmm. I bought these in black and in pink. The black smalls were awesome. Love the shorts, love the chamois, just a perfect short! The PINK version however fits nothing like the black. Totally different. I could barely get the smalls on because they were sooooo tight. I exchanged them for a medium. Super tight AGAIN. They "fit" enough to get them on but were awful. It was like different sizes of shorts were all pieced together to make this pair. The waist was ok, the butt/hips was very tight but possibly workable, the leg bands were atrocious and beyond skin tight...like cutting off circulation kind of tight. It was odd to say the least. I have pretty thin legs and the leg bands of the shorts were just unwearable. I am totally baffled because the black shorts and the pink shorts are supposed to be identical and there is nothing even remotely similar between the two.

I normally (90%) of the time wear a large in ladies cycle jerseys. I am thin and small framed, but busty on top so larges usually work. My bust is 35 1/2" around the fullest part. That would put me in a large Gore vest. I ordered the large as well as the medium just in case. I unpacked them and thought I had been sent the men's version by mistake because of the massive size. Double checked the tag and it was definitely the ladies one. I tried on the medium just for laughs since according to the size chart, I needed a large... it was so ridiculously huge, it looked like a square shapeless tent on me. I know it's a vest and not a racing jersey but it truly looked like I was wearing a men's vest and an ENORMOUS men's vest at that. So now I have ordered the XS to see how that one fits. I would give this zero stars on the fit/sizing as it is off by about 10 inches on the size chart...however, I liked the look/feel of it enough to try an XS. It is very, very frustrating though because now I have to pay $6.99 to send these grossly misrepresented vests back.

I am still stunned by these pants...they are not warm in the least. As in, I tried to wear them on a short 5 mile run when it was FIFTY DEGREES out and my thighs and knees were frozen. The air just cuts right through them, making you just as cold as if you had on only shorts. It was not even windy when I wore them, it would have been downright brutal. I thought they may be ok once my body warmed up, but they just got worse and worse to the point it ruined my run.

For kicks, I wore them on a short bike ride too. Not windy out and about 45 degrees. FAIL. My legs were colder than cold and the pants were literally useless. My legs were just as cold as if I were wearing just my cycling shorts.

They also fit terribly. I am 5-7, 125 and lean. The waist in these is too big and the thighs/butt are very fitted. Therefore, the waist winds up pulling down as you work out and the crotch winds up hanging down 2 inches. Pretty much the worst pants ever.

Very cute and nice quality but super short. I am 5-7 and 125 lbs. and if my cycling shorts were a low rise style, I would have been showing midriff even standing up. I got on my bike to see how it felt while I tested it just a few houses down my street and the back was also so short it almost showed the skin on my lower back. Sizing, as expected runs small so I ordered a large since I have a 35" bust. Was very fitted, arms were just right but I also have tiny little bird arms :-). This jersey is definitely made for smaller women...like a tiny gymnast type. Oh, additionally, the pink in the jersey does match the waistband of the Corsa pink/black/white shorts. BUT it does NOT match the color of pink in the sides of the shorts. So, it looks like your kit does not match in my opinion. Since the only part that does match, is covered up by the jersey, it's not aesthetically pleasing since the pink sides are much paler than the pink in the jersey. Sad because I was so pumped about this kit!

I wanted to love these but they are just not meant for a woman...I am 5-7, 125 pounds and they began creeping down after about 20 minutes into a ride. I had to keep getting off my bike to hike them up and pull my shorts back over them. I had Castelli shorts on so you would think the grippers on the shorts and warmers would work well together. I only rode 25 miles in them and they also bunched up behind my knees, causing chafing and irritation. I cannot imagine how torn up my legs would have been after a 50 mile ride even. The search continues...

I am a 5-7 and 125 pound woman and these are pretty huge with a bizarre fit. They were obviously baggy at the knees and not wearable. Additionally, the zipper pull at the bottom of the pant was VERY irritating on my skin after 2 seconds of trying them on. It may be ok if you had a taller sock on to be a barrier between your leg and the zipper, but I could not even fathom it after a ride! My ankle would have been rubbed raw! As far as the knee issue went, I think maybe someone wore them and returned them stretched out???

I am on the fence about these shorts. The chamois is great in them but the waist is very big compared to the rest of the short. I wear a size small and in a small, the shorts fit but the waist feels too big, especially by the end of a ride. They are do-able shorts as long as you do not wear warmers with them. The warmers (also Castelli) did something weird to them and made them bunch up on the leg bands. The more I rode, the higher the leg bands rode up...annoying. Additionally, after ONE delicate/cold water wash in a front loading washer, inside out and a flat/hang dry the logo started peeling off. Apparently, all Castelli logos start coming off, either cracking or peeling, within a few wears. Unacceptable.

Not really a fan of these. I always wear a size small in Castelli. I tried them on in a small in my LBS and they were so tight I thought I may rip them when I pulled them over my rear! So, I ordered them here in a medium...especially after reading the reviews to size up in these particular knickers. The medium was just plain weird. I practically had to pull them up to just under my breasts to have the crotch fit properly and I am 5' 7" tall and long waisted! Then obviously gravity made the waist gradually creep down leaving me with a sagging crotch and a shelf of padding sticking out on my bottom...not a good look. I never even rode with them. This was while I was getting READY to go on a ride. I was so annoyed with them, I took them off and put on my Castelli shorts instead. Also note, the chamois is supposedly the same as my Castelli shorts; however, it does NOT feel the same. It feels very diaper-like compared to the shorts.
