I ordered L after looking at the size chart, and while belly/booty fit really well, the thigh-squeezing effect is unpleasant. I'll keep them and try to stretch them. Next, I ordered the XL. Almost exact same length as L, thigh-squeeze is tolerable, but a little loose in the crotch, so feels a tiny bit funny. I'll keep both and see how it goes. My body is the kind where it's hard to find pants that feel good, and weight fluctuates ~10-15 pounds up and down (a normal part of womanhood). Long torso, small-ish waist/belly, ample booty and thighs. Usually a size 12. But anywhere from size 10-14 depending on brands. I'd say give 'em a go! :)
I was convinced by reviews that these shirts would help me wear my sundresses with less worries and they are great! I usually get a L comfy skirt and followed the advice to go a size down. At first the M seemed a bit snug but when I put them on they were comfy and had just enough give without being too bulky. I got the dark grey ones.
I live in these shorts during our PNW summers and have invested in 5 pairs. Sure, they're a higher price than the next closest thing I've found in bike shorts, but they completely and totally blow away the next closest thing and I wear them way more and they're clearly made to last. The cotton/hemp blend is ideaaaaal for summer---it is more breathable than "athletic" fabrics you typically find for shorts like this and the fabric doesn't hang on to, eh, crotch dampness, as much as cotton alone. On hot days, I wear them under my skirts, breezy dresses or casually with a shirt without another layer of undies---the gusset cut means no chafing, no chafing at all, it's such a good design. The length is also just right for me. Of course all of our bodies are different, I'm about 5'3" with thicker upper thighs and the size L gets to the exact midthigh length that sits right under the thickest part of the upper thigh while letting the non-rubbing parts of my thigh breathe. If you own a comfy skirt, you already know this, but the stretch of this fabric is also a perfect balance between something that generally conforms to my body and doesn't shift all around, and something that doesnt constrict.
Fit great, fabric is amazing.Love to wear them under skirts and dresses. Colors are fun to. Can't have to many.
It is often amazing to me how a single piece of clothing can completely change how I dress. The gusset short became one of those pieces.
I like skirts. I wear skirts all the time. I don't love tights. I do love long socks. How can I keep my assets secure when I want to wear a skirt and cute socks but it is super windy and I don't want to flash everyone? Oh, right, shorts. Shorts that are adorable on their own and double as a cheater under my skirts. Shorts that don't constrict and don't give me panty lines. These shorts. And yes, I do have them in every color, thank you very much. I wear them almost every day.
These have saved the day for me on more than one occasion. And now that it is getting warm again I probably will be wearing them as a cooler alternative to my polyester active wear.
Pro tip: This is another style that I personally prefer in a size smaller than my comfy skirt to keep them more stream-lined and less bulky as an under layer.
