Gusset Shorts :: Long
Hemp and Organic Cotton Shorts
So you want to wear a dress or skirt and still climb a ladder, ride a bike, go on a hike, or generally move your body? The Gusset Shorts are your answer! With a stretchy gusset running from one leg hem to the other, you don't have to worry about annoying seams. They work great as a compression short, and to avoid 'chub rub' while enjoying a game of soccer or thrown on for a hot yoga session. These Long Gusset Shorts are a great layering piece to help extend your favorite outfit into the chilly seasons. So let your skirt fly high as you swing around the dance floor and ride your bike without worrying about where your dress is spinning!

Today was our first outing, and so far so good. I'll be interested to see how this fabric interacts with other fabrics (wearing them today with a flared skirt in sweatshirt fleece, and not a lot of pulling and sticking between the two fabrics). I'll also be interested to see how they handle the very hot summer. I can see the seam where the waistband meets the body of the short, given the deep waistband. I can imagine these being a real staple in my wardrobe. Ordered them in XL--maybe could have sized down, but everything seems to shrink in our wash (even on gentle in cool water and line drying; yeah, I'm blaming it on the laundry).
I have a ton of these shorts. I have sensory issues when it comes to clothing and they help make wearing clothing more comfortable! I'm really grateful that I have found them. I first found out about texture clothing through first Thursday's in pioneer square. I'm grateful that I was able to talk to Teresa and figure out what size I am.
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.
