I bought myself a new padded 10" wide saddle and these shorts. The shorts arrived very quickly and about two weeks ahead of the new saddle for some reason but I was very glad that something arrived to help me as I just couldn't face another day riding my bike as it was. The shorts did not disappoint me at all - they were exactly what I had hoped for and needed!
I generally ride an average of about 5-6 miles and I could tell a huge difference for the first ride wearing these. Please note that the pain was not completely gone, but much better. I was able to patiently wait for the new saddle. These shorts are not a cure all for discomfort when you are unaccustomed to riding, but they do help. I am very pleased with my purchase.
I have now received my new saddle for the bike and I continue to wear these shorts. The new saddle is much better than my stock seat but even with the combination of these shorts I still feel it after a ride but I can't exactly say it is painful but that I am aware of the experience for some hours. The next day, I am more than ready to ride again!
Sizing/Quality - I am 5' 6" and currently weigh about 175 pounds. Yes I am overweight, which is the reason for the new commitment to bicycling. By reviewing the sizing chart, to place my order, I was dismayed to discover that the sizes jumped from a Large (12-14) to an Extra Large (16-18). I needed a size 14-16. I knew the Large would be just too tight - even with the stretch but I really feared the Extra Large would be too big but I felt that I didn't have a choice. I ordered the Extra Large and when it arrived - the tag on the shorts proclaimed that an Extra Large was indeed a 14-16! Yay! They did indeed fit perfectly and appear to run true to size. Yes, there is some give around the waist (and I have a paunch in that area) but to me that makes them comfortable. I feel confident that I will not go down in-size for at least another 15 pounds.
The material is lightweight, breathable, and stretchy but not "thin" as one reviewer remarked. I would have to guess that anything that thin is just stretched too tight. I feel these are excellent quality for the price. This is my first pair of biking shorts ever so I cannot compare them to the ridiculously expensive ones available. Perhaps, there are differences in padding that I have not experienced but for the price difference I am very content with my purchase and plan to buy at least one more pair soon and more when I lose more weight. These shorts also wash very well. I prefer to line-dry to preserve their fit and shape; they do dry very quickly. I also like the fact that this company is family owned and operated right here in the USA!
And for those of you ladies wondering, bike shorts like this are designed to be worn without underwear. Once I learned that they became much more comfy as well!
For an additional $10 you can by the Women's Pro Bike Short Padded for Cycling - Made in USA which I find more comfortable than these. The padding is not as stiff and it seems to conform to my body much better which makes it more comfortable for the ride.
overall I'd recommend these shorts if you're on a budget, but if you want a better fit and feel spend the extra $10 and get the pro style.
After a 20-mile ride on a canal toe path, I felt that my sitz bones were much less tender than usual. I really noticed a difference the next day. When I woke up, I noticed that my butt and hips weren't as sore as they normally are. I was back on the bike that same day. Usually I need to rest a bit.
I like that the waistband and the bands around the thighs are lightly elastic. There is none of that weird rubber gripper stuff on the thighs. That stuff gives me hives anyway.
I highly recommend these for recreational and leisure bikers.
