How to Measure:
For best results, take measurements over your underwear.
Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
Measure around the fullest part of your body at the top of your legs.
Using pants that fit well, measure the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg.

Best short for those sweaty days!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Thank you for making a men's style short in woman's sizing. I am always on the hunt for woman's shorts that aren't too short and have a normal crotch with out all the crazy girly colors. The material of these shorts make those hot days more bearable, they are extremely breathable and flexible. I wear these shorts more than any other bike shorts I have.

Don't trust the sizing chart!

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

My measurements put me solidly in the Large size, but these shorts are ginormous on me! Love how it costs me money to return an item when the sizing charts are so misleading... Not!

Don't trust the sizing chart!

Best Shorts I've Tried in Awhile

    These are the best shorts I've tried in awhile. I love how thew length is perfect for my knee pads, the fabric is light and flattering, and the shorts have a sleek and minimalistic look. All around very excited about this purchase!
