These are super shorts! They feel supportive and are very flattering. I love the reflective piece on the hamstrings. I chose the red because I liked the contrasting trim on the thighs. The red is gorgeous, though a bit sheer. These have a tight fit and are designed for serious cyclists (typically a slight build) so I had to size up to allow for a little more room in the thighs; so far the waist has worked out but, after 3-4 rides, I'm starting to wonder if it will strech out and become too lose. My other concern is that some stitching has come loose. I am going to try them on a few more rides but this may be a significant quality issue (I read about someone else having this issue on another site but these looked and felt so good I had to try them.) Fingers crossed they don't fall apart.
