Like others, I've really struggled to find the correct sizing on these shorts. I'm usually a 4 in other (regular clothing) brands, so ordered a multisport shortie in 4. It was comically large (I could pull the shorts down with the zipper and button done up). I returned and ordered a 2. The smaller size still had huge gapping in the waistband, and I know I'd be constantly wanting to pull the shorts up during a ride. [Note - I have proportionally very narrow hips in relation to my waist, so maybe I don't have enough hips to keep these shorts up?? I followed the sizing guidelines though which is what led me to buy the 4 in the first place.] I'm not sure what to do... I have very short legs so the short inseam is necessary for me, but I'm reluctant to order another size down and risk yet another $8 return fee. I'm hoping Shredly will make the curvy in a short inseam since the yoga-style waistband looks more flexible for more body shapes (ironic, since I seem to be the opposite of curvy).
LOVE- LOVE - LOVE
This is the first pair of official mountain bike shorts I’ve owned. I LOVE them! They are very well made and the wide waist band is super comfy. I will definitely be ordering more!
This is my first pair of the "shorter" version of awesome Shredly shorts. I love the contrasting complimentary fabric at the waist and on the "flip" side of the leg at the bottom (when you fold the short up to make it shorter). Not a fan of how stiff the fold over section makes the bottom of the short. I would prefer to not have a fold over, rather I would like to see Shredly just make a shorter length short (2-3 inches shorter). A shorter short without the flip or stiff fabric at the bottom of the leg. That said, I always get great compliments on my Shredly's on the trail! Great prints and design.
I'm 5'9" with a 25.5ish" waist and a 37.5" booty. I bought a size 0. I was experiencing a lot of gap in the back, maybe because I was trying to wear them higher on my waist than intended. Either way, I returned these in favor of the MTB Curvy short in the teal cat print size 2. Those fit way better, and I love the yoga waistband. I do wish a size 0 was available, but these will do!
Love the versatility of these shorts and now that I've discovered the Shredly chamois liner and all the awesome shorts they make, I will probably never wear straight cycling shorts again! The curvy MTB fit me best and the multi short gives me a little gap behind the waist but not enough to bother me. I'd say they run pretty true to size. I'm an 8 with hips and thighs that test the limits of the shorts but the fabric gives enough! Love the fold up feature to shorten and provide fabric contrast.
Though I really like the fabric, colours, good construction and design, sadly for me, the sizing chart for the multisport shortie is inaccurate. I read all of the reviews and decided to size up one for the yogacham and it seems to fit well (haven't tried on a bike yet) but the multisport short is easily one size too big (more than 1" to take in waist and hip - in fact my measurements say I should order a 6, but 4 is still too large). I will have to return it - a hassle with it being in US and me in Canada but no one else in my friend/family circle fits or wants it.
The material was nice and they are the perfect length! I ordered a size 6 and usually I'm a 6 but they were too big for me. Sad that I had to return them and when I went back to order size 4 was sold out. Next time then!
I just received my order on two pairs of these shorts. As far as design, color, fit and functionality I would give them a five star. However, after wearing one of the pairs today, I have to say, I am disappointed because they are hot! The material for multi sports is too heavy in my opinion. If I had not taken the tags off and washed them, I would be sending one pair back.
They seem quite rugged for multi sports and the fit is awesome as well as the multiple pockets. . I have sent a few pairs of Shredly's back to other sites that sell these simply because the longer shorts were overwhelming on my 5"2" frame. These are perfect in fit. Another thing that would have been nice to see is the inside button adjustments for those of us that go up and down two to five or so pounds. The colors and design are spot on and far from the boring everyday biking shorts. I wish the material was lighter for warmer temperatures.
The multi-sport shortie is by far is the most comfortable Shredly short I own. I have the multi-sport short for most pairs I own, but the length of the shortie with the ability to fold it up even more has struck the perfect balance. The fabric is simply perfect and the prints are gorgeous! This short is my new favorite.
I love these shorts! They are true to size for me (size 4/27 in jeans and 4 fits great). The multisport shorties are a relaxed fit on me in comparison to the the curvy short which sits higher and compresses my waist a bit. The short length is great for shorter ladies who want a bit of knee to show (I am 5'3"). The floral Kay print is a nice juxtaposition to the masculine bikes/gear of mountain biking. The fold-able hem, the zipper pocket, and flat buttons are a nice improvement from the 2019 shorties. Highly recommend!
