Emma A.wrote a review of Backcountry Empire Bike Short - Women's on May 30, 2019
These shorts clearly took into consideration the eternal female mountain biker shorts problem- too big in the waist/too tight in the thighs but maybe didn't 100% nail it. I'm 5'3", 155lbs with a small waist and thick thighs, and I got a size large. (Typically a size 28 or 6 in jeans/dresses) They're still too big in the waist but fit comfortably in the thighs. I think downsizing to the medium, which is the size I had originally thought of getting, would leave things too tight in the legs. The large works as it has the adjustable band that doesn't leave things too bunched up. Thanks for making some headway here, Backcountry.
