if you are between sizes, we recommend sizing up due to the compressive fabric. if you’re unsure which size will offer you the most comfort, contact us directly via chat or email and we'll be happy to help you determine which size will work best for you
I love these shorts! They stay right in place without being overly tight
The material is so soft! The padding is sufficient for my rides of 40-50 km. I love the wide band at the bottom to keep the shorts in place.
performance 7" short (eco-friendly)
I find the band around the legs a bit too tight in relation to the rest of the shorts.
Hi Vera: thank you for the feedback and for your ongoing support! We have found that some of the pairs of shorts need to have the ‘stay stitches’(temporary stitches that hold the pattern pieces together when the shorts are being sewn) need to be broken. Don’t be shy to really stretch out the leg elastics. You may hear the sound of threads snapping but that’s totally normal and won’t compromise or harm the shorts. Let us know if you have any more concerns.
