Slim Fit, and Stretch
By Merebea Danforth x4236 July 25, 2011
I tried these shorts on and was really impressed, though the fit was not going to work out for me as a biking short. The shorts seem really well made, and the fabric is pretty light with a lot of stretch to it. However, the shorts were just too tight for my skier's booty. They looked good as normal shorts, but they were just too tight in the butt for me to feel good about wearing a chamois underneath (not included). No one needs that close of an outline of your chamois. Those who are slimmer in the butt/hip area may be a huge fan. I wanted to love these, but the fit just didn't quite work for me for biking. The Maloja Purperella (HucknRoll item# MLJ0020) is a perfect alternative for someone looking for something similar with a looser fit.
