Great shorts-super comfortable chamois, no sausage legs, no show through

I'm an avid cyclist riding 100+ miles a week but am curvy and the newer cycling short fabrics seem to be moving towards being more sheer. I do not want ANY show through on my shorts especially over my curvier parts and these shorts deliver even on the patterned side panels yet still feel breathable. The patterned side panel is more visually "catchy" than I thought it would be. (Not a big deal, but I tend to like my shorts not to emphasize my curvy hips.) They've got a very comfortable chamois (tested on a 50 mile ride-no pressure issues), the waist fits nicely (not too high, not too low so everything stays covered and the waist does not ride down when going into aero position). Be sure to hand wash them and NEVER dry them in the dryer. My Pearl Izumi shorts last for years when laundered like this. These fit as expected. I'm a curvy size 10 in regular clothing and ordered the large. These are longer shorts. I'm 5'5" and they hit the tops of my knees. The only negative is a super itchy tag which I promptly removed.
