Junk. Get PI men's shorts instead

Pure junk. I am only a 4 or 6 but the Medium in these shorts fit like XS. They are also amateurishly short. Serious cyclists do not wear hot pants in order to get a tan on the bike. I thought i'd try the women's shorts, but I'm going back to buying only PI men's bibs and shorts -- thicker fabric, better padding, and almost knee-length. Solid. Men's Small and even medium fit fine -- maybe even more comfortably because they fall below the navel. I have a half-dozen pair of PI men's bibs and shorts and there's no comparison. It's as though the men's cycling clothes are made for Saks Fifth Avenue, and the women's, for K Mart. Unfortunately, the short-changing of quality in a manufacturer's styles for women is not exclusive to Pearl Izumi, but this is a pretty egregious example. Don't bother with the matching sleeveless jersey either.
