Whimsical fabric and well-thought out design features like the thigh vents make this such a fun short to wear. They make me smile every single time!
I have found the fabric a little warm and retentive of moisture on super hot / humid days, so the wicking and breathability could be significantly improved. However, the same thing makes them pretty awesome on those cooler days and they do keep me warmer than other shorts I own.
The sizing / cut needs a bit of attention: I am 5'5", 115 lb, typically between a 4 and a 2 in every other clothing style, item, and brand, and have been for the last 20 years. I read and followed the sizing guide provided. As it turns out, the size 2 shorts barely stay up, and all of the smaller sizes were sold out. I decided to keep them and just cinch them way down with the internal waist adjuster, but they're still super baggy in other areas. I know I don't get to complain - I liked enough other parts of them to put up with the sub-optimal fit - just feedback that I hope is helpful to others when choosing shorts and sizes. With cut, I would almost prefer a little more taper / narrowness in the thigh and approaching the knee area, these shorts are awesome but as they are cut more like men's board shorts, they tend to be somewhat floppy and have more loose material available to snag on things like my bike saddle, trees, backpack, you name it.
Overall, awesome garment - I love the uniqueness of the fabric as it fits my personality and riding style perfectly - it just needs a little intentional tweaking to go from good to great.
These are the most adorable shorts I've EVER seen. Love the features, waist adjusters and THE VENTS!!! The sizing is tricky though. All signs point to "I wear a 4" based on my body measurements, what I wear in jeans and every other garment ever. I ordered a 4 and a 2, to be safe and I was swimming even in the 2. Guess I better start eating more food! I recommend sizing way down if you plan to order these shorts, otherwise you will end up super sad 'cause you love them to pieces and have to send them back. Great product - if it ever shows up again in a 0 (which I haven't worn since I was maybe 8 years old) I'll be the first one in line!
Love the shorts
Love these shorts. Comfortable, functional, and stylish! Customer service is awesome. My package was lost in transit and Shredly was on top of it immediately, giving me daily updates until it arrived. Great company and great product.
Best shorts ever. I have never loved an article of clothing like I love these.
Saw these on someone a couple years ago & finally got a pair for my birthday. They were all I hoped for. Very comfortable & fun!
I love the print! I wish I could give it 5 stars but the Velcro on the fly makes it slighlty uncomfortable. The size chart recommended a 10, normally I am 8. I went with the 8 and it fit perfectly.
Love the print and the shorts are a OK fit. The fabric is a bit stiff, however. I would like a lighter weight fabric. I have some RaceFace shorts with lighter fabric which I love. I originally ordered a size 8 as I'm 5 ft 7 and 132 lbs--but they were huge. Went down to a 6 which worked. I also ordered a couple of tank tops and also a 3/4 sleeve top which are true to size and very nice fit and fabric.
wonderful shorts...feel great on
designed to fit real shapely women
freedom of movement!
& love the detail...clip in pocket for keys, secret zip vents

Super cute, fit great!
Absolutely awesome customer service, incredible product and great price!!! Love you Shredly!!!
I love these shorts. They feel durable and sturdy, with enough give to make long rides comfortable. I felt that they ran a little small in the thigh from what I'm used to in size 14 pants, but maybe I've put on more weight during the pandemic than I've realized. The cut is otherwise great, and I love the adjustable waistband. The fabric is AMAZING, and the pattern is SO CUTE. I will be wearing these incredible shorts off of the trail too.
Love Love Love! I’m so glad I finally found your shop! Bike and jump in the ocean with these, dang! I’ve been biking for over a decade and so glad they’re are finally women's gear that are cute & functional. I grew up when you went to buy Vans or bike shoes and they asked you what size you are in men’s! Cheers!
Excellent bike shorts that fit, look awesome and perform well. Thank you Shredly for taking care of small sized women! Yay!
Super fly shorts! Length is just right ( I’m 5‘5“ ) and material has a bit of stretch. Fun pattern as well. My daughter was envious. Great riding shorts overall.
I love everything about these! The vent is awesome, the side pocket is perfect for stashing my phone or gloves, and they're the perfect length for me. At first and I tried them on without my chamois underneath I was afraid they'd be too tight but after I put them on for a ride with a chamois they are the perfect tightness-- not constrictive but not too loose where it feels like I'm wearing men's cargo shorts (classic mtb short dilemma for me haha). Fyi for sizing, I'm 140 lb and 5'4.5" and an 8 was great! :)
Love the pattern and fabric. This model is very long for me. I’m 5 ft tall and they go past my knees. They are comfortable to wear while riding.
