For the past 3 years I have struggled to get cycling shorts to fit - for some reason anyone over size 14 is not truly catered for in the UK - but no more!!!

Ordered these shorts last Monday and they arrived Wednesday and they fit like a glove. Lovely lycra with plenty of stretch and a decent looking chamois, which appeared to be superior to the chamois in some of my US shorts (which cost 4 times as much). Tried them out for the first time on Saturday - a 32 mile hilly road route and the shorts never let me down - the grippers held the legs securely in place and the padding made for a comfy ride. They come higher up the waist that others I have tried, which was a bonus as stopped me getting a cold back.

I never once had to readjust the shorts and I am absolutely delighted with them - will definitely be ordering more. At this price, they are a bargain and I don't mind if I wear them out within a season as they represent excellent value for money. Plus being shiny lycra, as opposed to matt, they fit much better under MTB and waterproof shorts / trousers as they allow the over-trouser to 'slide' and therefore you remain comfy throughout the whole ride.

For reference, I'm 5'10", 34" inside leg and wear a size 20 and the 18-20 fit me perfectly :o)

Bought 2 pairs of these shorts for use on my exercise cycle. I was experiencing numbness in the nether regions and loose shorts/trousers ruckled uncomfortably. These shorts sorted out both problems and I'm now able to exercise for longer and more often. On someone in better shape than I am they would look good as well. Am very pleased with my purchase.

Really impressed with the speedy delivery. I placed my order on Thursday evening (Free Super Saver) and they arrived on the Saturday. The quality of the shorts is excellent and they are really comfortable so much so I have just ordered another pair.

Good fit round legs do not ride up, without being too tight. Very comfortable to wear. Easy to wash and dry.

Very disappointed with these shorts; the waist band on these are TINY. I had ordered a size up from my normal size 14 thinking that a 16 would afford a little room given they are compression material. I have rarely seen a ridiculously sized pair of shorts. They are just 11 inches wide! Wish I could post a photo to illustrate their idea of a size 16...

They actually fitted well around the hips and legs. However, the elastic, now stretched tight to a width of just 1.5 cms with very little give left, started digging into my sides almost immediately; I didn't last two minutes wearing them before they became really uncomfortable. That was in an upright position. I can't imagine the inevitable pain that would be caused from being in a haunched over position for even half an hour. I wish I was exaggerating.

Wanted to like these shorts because of all the positive reviews. Like another reviewer stated, they may be fine if you do have a small waist. I shall be returning them.

Edit - I have since bought a great pair of well fitting and very comfortable Endura mesh shorts for just a couple pounds more.

They are comfortable, washes well. Did a 55k bike ride and had no problems. Would definitely buy again good value and well worth the money. Padding better then some others I have purchased.

These cycling shorts are great...good quality and really help! I am new to cycling and bought a mans road bike even though I am a lady...so the saddle is a bit keen! But they have really helped and fit well too. The gel bits around the bottoms of the leg mean they stay in place and do not ride up. Great product and Tenn Outdoors service is excellant too.

Perfect. Just what was expected. Other than still getting a little sore on 20+ mile rides- there's only so much a pair of shorts can do!

I got these for a 47 mile charity cycle having experienced some pain on my seat bones and groin area doing c6miles in normal shorts on a razor blade of a saddle. The shorts were extremely comfortable and, combined with a slightly padded saddle, really worked for me. I was barely sore at all after all those hours on the road, which was a very pleasant surprise!

I'm usually pretty much a size 13 (!) but decided to go for the 14-16 in case they were tight fitting. They've turned out to be fine - slightly loose on me but very comfortable, and stayed in place for the whole day - the grips in the legs were just enough to stop them riding up, while the slightly high waist means no unflattering rear views! I think my normal size (12-14) would probably have been fine as well, just a bit of a snugger fit.

Overall I couldn't be happier with these and would definitely recommend both the shorts and the seller, who delivered them very quickly. Thanks!

Really pleased, they really work! However, I'm over 5'10 and the elastic at bottom of legs is tight... Perhaps because they are higher up my leg than some ladies?? I have now ordered the next size up and they are much better :) Would suggest this anyway for comfort and they are VERY snug! Good quality though, would recommend.
