These shorts were exactly what I was looking for! I read the reviews and ordered up a size (to a medium) and they fit perfectly. I am thinking about ordering another pair! I love the 5 inch length of this cycling short!

Acknowledging that these are on the "cheaper" end of a bike short, they do feel like they're not going to stand up to a lot of use, especially the padded section. Maybe my bits are extremely sensitive, but on an 8-mile ride, I was hoping to feel less discomfort with these. Would pass on these if you do longer rides on a hard seat.

Too skimpy. Cheaply made. Not what they used to be when they were made in the USA. What a shame.

Love these shorts but they do run small, as others have stated. I am 5’2” 106 lbs wear a size 0 petite pant and I wear a medium in these shorts. I tried the small (which according to size chart I should wear) and could barely squeeze into them. For reference I do not have slender thighs but not huge either, middle of the road. Just size up one size.

Fit is great. It can be hard to find cycling liners for under shorts with a short inseam. I bought 2 pairs and have not been disappointed.

These shorts fit as expected, but the waist sits really low - much lower than my other shorts of this same brand. When I lean over the handlebars, the waist rolls down a bit and I feel the need to tug them up constantly. I much prefer the shorts that cover my tummy more fully.

I am 5’2” 106 lbs with athletic legs. I usually have a problem with the leg band at the bottom being too tight. These were perfect! So comfy and very flattering. They do have a substantial chamois which I wasn’t sure how I would feel about but after a 30 min ride on a Peloton I was all for it. Oh, they are actually very flattering even on my short frame. A win for attractive, comfy bike shorts.

These shorts use a different material than Pearl Izumi has used in the last-less stretchy. Runs small like previous reviewer mentioned. Get a bigger size, otherwise you’ll be sharing images of the front of your body you do NOT want to share! The color will be difficult to pair with anything. Try Terry bicycle shorts, the chamois is actually positioned correctly!

I really liked this shoe and it was comfortable except that the toe box was way too narrow for my usual size, and I never have that issue. I went up a half size and the shoe was way too big. I think this shoe would probably work for most people but I was between sizes on these and unfortunately did not fit. I really liked the look of the shoe and was bummed that they didn't work for me.

This item runs very small in my opinion. I got a Medium, my normal size. I’m usually between a 4/6 in bottoms and I can BARELY fit these.

I purchased these for my Peloton bike. They work great, much more comfortable than the Peloton brand shoes. They run a half size too big.

I typically wear a size 8/8.5 in shoes. I ordered a size 40 and I thought it might be a taddd too big, so I ordered the size 39 to double check. Turns out the 39 was too small, so I decided to keep the 40. I think my toes would have been too tight in the 39s. Only been on one cycling ride with these so far, but they were really comfortable!

I did not go with the sizing chart Zappos offered. Based on review, they seemed a tad off. I’m a size 7.5 and ended up with a 39 and they fit perfect!

Jacket is well made --- perfect for bike riding on spring and fall days -- I am most appreciative of the double zipper that allows for flexible adjustments.
