I recently upped my workout frequency in the hot hot summer heat, and I was having to do laundry every week to keep myself in clean shorts. After checking out all the options at a local sporting goods superstore, I left empty-handed; everything was either too thin (showing what color undies I had on), too short and/or riding up (letting my thighs chafe), and/or just plain fit wrong. I came home hit up the interwebs for my good ol' Danskin stuff, and it's as good as ever.

My old pairs are all mostly cotton with a little spandex. The blend on this pair has some polyester in the mix, too. I was afraid that might make them too hot (summer in Houston is really hot and humid), but I don't notice any extra heat, and they seem to not show the sweat quite so much as my mostly-cotton ones, and/or they're wicking better. The fabric also feels like it will be a little more durable than the no-poly blend.

I've never had a problem with the legs of Danskin bike shorts riding up, and these are no exception, plus the fabric is thick enough to not show off the color of my undies. The side seaming on these is a little more flattering than your basic vertical side seams.

The extra-wide waistband is all-around more comfortable than the simple elastic band on my old pairs. My only complaint with these, and why I'm giving them 4 stars instead of 5, is that the front of the waistband is too high. It's a perfect natural waist height in the back and on the sides, but it's the same height in the front, and my (and most womens') waistline drops down a little in front. Combine that with my modest belly pudge rolls (hence the increased exercise!), and it gets a little uncomfortable in front, and the extra width of the waistband actually makes it harder to fold down in the front to sit on my waistline.

I bought my 1st pair a few months ago & I love them. I wear them for cycle and cardio & fitness classes under my shorts. i add my weight a little bit all over & these don't cut me in half. They also make my legs look nice & slim and I don't have to keep pulling the legs down. I'm back today to order a couple more pairs.

Love this fabric -- perfect for wicking away sweat but is not shiny like some brands. Material is a 'flat' black and doesn't have that sheen pointing out all my curves. Very comfortable fit.

These shorts are good quality. I am glad I ordered a medium because small is my usual size in tops and bottoms but these fit great. I like the fact that they are a good length. Not too short for a woman in her 60's. Yet not too long to not show her nice leg's!

I bought these as walking shorts to wear under a dress at an amusement park. They make great walking shorts. They never rode up and fit nice and comfortably all day. I will be buying another pair.

I bought these for rowing and they're defiantly my favorite work out short.

Size Small fit just right (I'm 5-8, 130 pounds, slender build). They aren't compression but they have a thicker feel than spandex material. Not padded in the butt (so defiantly not serious bike shorts). They are not see through at all. I like the length and the waist is high enough that to stay up when I bend over/forward during working out.

Very durable. I worked out in these about three times a week, twice a day for a good two months straight. They're starting to show a little wear in the butt and waist band. Overall though, for the amount and intensity of exercise I used them for I'm really impressed. They ride up a little (Because I'm basically repeatedly pulling my legs all the way to my chest) but because they are a decent length this has never really bothered me.

These shorts run a little small. I ordered them for jogging and find that I prefer a regular waist height. This waist line is a little low and tends to ride down with motion. The length is just long enough to keep the seems from rubbing together when I jog, but a little more length would be ideal.

With all of that said, they do seem well made and would be good to wear as a comfortable pair of shorts for walking or hanging around. I wouldn't really recommend them for jogging, but if you're trying to save a few dollars they will work.

I was looking for a pair of basic, unlined bicycle-type shorts. These filled the bill, and were exactly what I was looking for.

Will definitely wear for my half-marathon. Very comfortable in leg and waist. Will buy another pair. Great product by Danskin.

Bike shorts have padding in the crotch. These do not and therefore are NOT BIKE SHORTS. These are just thin, exercise shorts but no one who cycles would call these "bike shorts". This product is misrepresented. I sent them back as soon as received.
