I am really enjoying my White Castelli skort! I ordered a medium (I am a solid size 6) - had to return it for a large because it was too tight on my legs. The large is a perfect fit. The short is a very nice, comfortable compression and stays put quite well without any 'grippers' at the bottom. There is a small reflective piece on the back of each leg on the shorts. The skirt opens on one side and is very flattering (lies flat in the front, some very slight gathering in the back). The waist is a LOW RISE in front, higher in back. The chamois is thick and extremely comfortable...I typically ride ~40 miles/day. The word 'KISS' is imprinted inside the front of the chamois and for whatever reason, I get a kick out of that. The only thing they failed to add to this great skort is a little pocket!
