Rated 5 out of 5áby CatherineG LOVE THESE SHORTS!
I bought these because I had size M's since I was a teenager and they just didn't fit anymore. These are wonderful! They have a comfortable amount of padding that doesn't bunch or feel like a big diaper. The waistband is wide, like a yoga pant, so that the shorts come up high enough on your lower back to be comfy. This creates a nice, smooth fit (no muffin top!).
The legs are a great fit too. The band isn't terribly tight and it's just sticky enough to stay in place as I cycle.
I've done two 50 mile rides and these and I couldn't be happier :)

Rated 4 out of 5áby MciFW Glad I found these
The price was excellent and the quality high compared to what I've seen in sporting good stores and bike shops. I'm very pleased.
The padding is in the right spot for me and is effective.

Rated 3 out of 5áby NPBiker Pants dont Fit Right
These bike shorts are very high quality , and the padding in them is the best I've seen. But they are cut very low in the front and they keep falling down in the front and are uncomfortable when walking around .While biking they are okay. I see from the picture above that they are cut lower in the front, but it is uncomfortable and I am sorry I paid $50 for them. So beware of this factor if you want to purchase them.

I always choose Pearl Izumi cycling shorts. They fit true to size and are completely comfortable whether you take a short ride or go for the long haul.
This newest pair of bike shorts does not disappoint.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Fishlady99 Nice Cycling Shorts
These shorts fit amazingly well, and have enough padding for a comfortable bicycle ride. I rode for an hour in them the other day and did not experience my usual soreness. I would definitely recommend them.

I love the extra padding in the seat and the nice fit. They don't ride up, either!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Runmarun Perfect
Love these bike shorts!! I've never ordered riding clothes online as I prefer to try them on. I took a chance based on other reviews and couldn't be happier. The 7" inseam falls about 2 inches above my knees which I prefer over the 5" inseam.(I'm 5'2") I wear a size 2 in clothes and decided on the medium because compression wear is supposed to be like a second skin, and they fit like a glove. The elastic around the leg is not tight at all. The seat is not bulky like some gel seats and very comfortable. Tried out a 40 miler the next morning and had no complaint. Even when the temperature hit 95, they wicked and stayed cool without feeling like I was wearing a plastic bag. I'm ordering another couple of pairs. I wish other colors were available. Like a nice bright red or hi vis colors!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5áby FLRunnergirl My new favorites!
These shorts are light-weight and very comfortable. The length is perfect for me as I prefer longer shorts, but not so long that they come to my knees. These end about 3 inches above my knees which is perfect. The padding is much thinner than my other cycling shorts, but surprisingly these are much more comfortable! I've worn them several times on my daily commute to work (32 miles round trip) and I've been very happy with them!

Rated 3 out of 5áby BeanThereDoneThat1 Elastic Tight Around Legs
Based on other reviews, I ordered a medium. I usually wear a size 8 or 10 in pants. These fit great except for the elastic band around the legs, which is meant to keep the shorts from riding up. It's too tight for me and feels uncomfortable. My legs aren't skinny but not overly heavy either. Maybe if I cycled more they would be OK, i.e. more muscle instead of the Pillsbury dough-boy look at the bottom band of the shorts. I'm sending them back. Quality seems good though.

Rated 4 out of 5áby 2thesea Waist too large
I love these bike shorts. The padding is great and the length is good. But I went by the size chart and they were too big in the waist. Exchanged for size down. I think that will be just right.
