Verified Buyer Reviewed by Kim D from Massachusetts on Wednesday, July 23, 2014Stay comfortable and dry on the ride. Size guide was spot-on.
Reviewed by Jeannie T from Pennsylvania on Friday, May 9, 2014Was always a HUGE fan of Pearl Izumi top of line PRO cycling shorts since bought my first pair in Spring 2005. Try to buy a new pair every year since ride a lot and wear them out. Held off last few years since not a big fan of the whole hip hugger low rise style which has dominated women's clothing design, but decided to take a chance.
First, what happened to Pearl sizing?? Was always a Pearl Women's Large in cycling shorts last 10+ years and glad listened to other reviews and bought XL. They now run small like all the other women's cycle clothing manufacturers. And, NO I did not get bigger over same period, actually smaller!
Second, what happened to Pearl quality? PRO women stuff always appeared comparable to men's PRO based on my husband's purchases. Not this pair. Think I might have to switch to Pearl Men's PRO going forward. No bunch waist and leg bands seem like a good idea, but they are thin and see wear as being a problem.
Only redeeming thing about these shorts is that AWESOME Pearl PRO padding. That and less than half of full retail cost are only two reasons keeping these shorts.
Reviewed by Maggie from Delaware on Wednesday, August 21, 2013Paid $100 only to have the waist band come apart after 1 ride. Poor quality for the money!
Reviewed by Skier1010 from New York City on Sunday, July 7, 2013These cycling shorts run a bit big in the leg; and I do not have thin legs. I would have kept them anyway, except for the fact that they are sheer in the "behind" I had to return yoga pants from Athleta and Lulu lemon for the same reason. I found yoga pants from Nordstroms. I did not think Pearl Izumi would have this issue. I even sized up for this reason. I am hoping to find another brand of cycling shorts that are not sheer. I think China (if this is where the fabric is made), if is having the last laugh.
Reviewed by Pepper from MN on Saturday, July 6, 2013You know who you are. It is HARD to find bike shorts if you wear something bigger than a size 16. I wear a street size 20 and ordered these in the 2XL. These shorts are super comfortable and they have plenty of room and stretch left. The chamois has good padding but isn't super big (I have one pair of shorts that the wide chamois goes down my thighs a little and bunches up when I ride) so no bunching or moving. I would agree witht he other reviews that the leg grippers do a bizarre thing to your thighs but I'm ok with that, just don't look at them when you are riding. I liked them enough to order a second pair.
