Big fan of this Brand. Only short I wear MTB. Was so stoked to finally have a solid black color way because sometimes you just wanna run all black! I’m 5’3, and 125 and size 4 was pretty true. I do cinch up the sides still so pending if you want a more snug fit I could have maybe worn a sz 2. Thanks Shredly. Love the gear.
Functional shorts. I'm a new biker so I didn't want anything too flashy, but in hindsight the black shorts are a little bit boring. I didn't look when I purchased so I didn't realize that they don't have the same gemstone buttons as the flashier patterns....but that's my bad for not looking more closely at the pics. As far as sizing, the sizing between the chamoix and the shorts are WAY different. I'm 5'8" and 130 lbs. and ordered both the chamoix and shorts in a size 4. The chamoix's quite snug, while the shorts are really baggy and big on me. The waist of the shorts is adjustable and that's a nice feature, but I had to take the internal elastic waist adjuster band thingy in by 5 button holes on each side, so while the shorts fit and are comfy for riding, the main waistband of the shorts doesn't even touch my body and sticks out about an inch from my body on both sides. If you have a child and are familiar with the internal adjustable elastic band you'll understand what I'm saying, hopefully! The moral of my story is to size down in the shorts. :)
Love these Shredly shorts so much I Had to have the Noir as well! (SHREDLY is never borring, even in basic black) I felt the fit was slightly bigger than my previously owned Shredlys so I exchanged then for the next size smaller.
