These are the "mom jeans" of cycling shorts.

I am disappointed in these shorts for two reasons.

First, I am 5'7" and 117 lbs. I purchased a size small. They fit but are too short. When I ride, the legs bunch up above my knees, which is really annoying. My total inseam is 32", so my legs are not freakishly long.

My second issue is the waist. Other reviewers noted that these are high waisted. This is an understatement. Nowadays, bottoms are normally cut so that the hit just below the waist, which is flattering. These are cut so that they hit and cinch in at the waist. This makes you look like you have a belly even if you don't.

I would send them back but it would be creepy since I wore them.

On a positive note, they are well made and the padding is adequate. In my opinion, this makes them worthy of three stars.
