Verified Buyer Reviewed by rockymtrider from Colorado on Saturday, April 9, 2016These are shorter than others I own and not so tight on my thighs, so they look good and are comfortable.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by wildflower from Oregon on Sunday, February 28, 2016Runs fairly true to size. Odd fit for me. Too short in legs and low waistband.
Good quality and workmanship. Nice colors.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Daisybella from Ormond Beach, FL on Tuesday, November 3, 2015Happy with product, just struggling as I am in between sizes. XL too big, large a bit snug.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by rjmac from new jersey on Wednesday, September 23, 2015my 4th pair of pearl izumi shorts - true to size -
Verified Buyer Reviewed by M+A+R+S from NY on Monday, September 21, 2015Love these shorts! The wide waistband is really comfortable and the fit is fitted without being snug. I am 5'8" 130 lbs with cyclists legs and ordered a medium. Could almost have used a Small but I think they would be too small.

Hmmm. If you ride 3 to 4 times a week, this pair of shorts should get you through. If you don't ride that often then your butt will be tired after 30 or so miles. If the 100 miles is in one day you will be better off than if spread over 2 days. No matter how thick the padding is, your butt will be sore after a 100 mile ride.
You are out of my league! I bought this for my daughter. It seemed similar to what my husband uses for 30 mile rides. No idea what you'd need for a century.
The most I've done with these shorts so far is 50, which the padding was plenty sufficient for. I think they would be fine for a century, depending how much padding you like. Of all the cycling shorts I own, the amount of padding on these is just about in the middle (or slightly more).
