Pearl Izumi W Sugar Short

Overall a solid short. The leg bands are not as tight and restricting as other cycling shorts I have tried on. By far these are the most flattering because it does not cut into your inner thighs and create that allusion of excess fat. The circumference of the leg opening is larger than other brands of cycling shorts with similar inseams. The padding is definitely more bulky than a tri short. For reference, I'm 5'6" and 136 lbs, about a size 4, and I have relatively athletic quads. I purchased a M. These shorts were not exceptionally unflattering with regard to my legs. I'd recommend measuring your legs prior to purchasing these or any other cycling/ tri shorts.

I'm a dude runner (you know, uh...Short shorts?!). I bought the medium, because they're the only shorts that don't come below the knee. I really thought I might try them, be disappointed, and then return them. The fit so well that people don't even ask if they're men's shorts or women's. Added bonus -- the back comes up high enough to cover my crack at all times. Great short! Will buy again -- always in black!

These are great shorts. I like the new colors. I got them in orchid. Please ignore that first review. I hate when I read reviews from small women that make comments about a size. Lady below, you are tiny. Just measure and say it does not fit for your frame. Some cyclists have small legs and some do have huge ones.

These shorts are very comfortable. If you want a bike short with less length in the leg they are perfect. They do ride up some but that is likely because of the length. They are perfect for spinning class but I would not take them on a 3 hour bike ride. They could also use a drawstring at the waist. Overall a great short for working out in the gym and short rides.

I bought these for my hotter-than-Hades spin classes at the gym. They work great for preventing the twinges of nerve pain I was getting from the seat. They ride up a bit after an hour of wear, but they don't dig into my legs. I bought an XL, I'm 5' 8" and a size 14 with very muscular legs. After wearing these a few times, I think I could have gone down a size. These are not very attractive, but they are also bike shorts, so I didn't really expect much. My next Pearl Izumi purchase will likely be the Attack capris, just because I'd like a bit more length.
