    Finally Ethical Shorts

    Posted by Jay Dick on 4th Oct 2022

    I love wearing shorts, even short shorts and have a tough time finding them available from ethical brands, without considering whether those brands cater to plus sizes. I bought two pairs of these shorts, M for my daughter and XL for myself based on the sizing chart. Both pairs fit which is great and we are both happy with our shorts

    Thigh gap

    Works wonderfully to prevent your legs from rubbing together. I like that I wear the same size large in all of the types of Maggie's leggings.

    I wear a medium and they fit perfectly. Neutral color, comfortable and I love knowing they are produced sustainably. Thanks.

    The best legging ever! They are organic, very nice to the touch, they are firm unlike some other organic brands I have tried, and the price is just right. Thank you!

    These shorts are absolutely fantastic; a breathable alternative foundation garment. Highly recommended!

    A little too heavy for warm weather.

    These bike shorts are a good color, shape, and elasticity. But for me, they are too warm to wear in summer temps.

    These Are Perfect

    Posted by Shay on 26th Jul 2019

    I absolutely love these shorts. The fit is perfect- I was worried the leg opening would be too tight but it’s not. They fit me flawlessly - flatteringly snug but not tight which I hate. I did order the medium out of concern for tightness but then also worried it might be too big but washed and dried it is perfect even on my small frame although I only ever tried them on dried. I have washed and dried them several times already and they seem to be holding up beautifully. I would love to buy many more pairs in other colors, especially black as I have only been able to get the blue. Anyway, I hope Maggie’s doesn’t ever change or get rid of these shorts, as I wound be happy to keep buying them for a very long time! I am 5’8.5” with a 26.5 inch waist and 35.5 inch hips and a medium is perfect washed and dried - fitted but not too tight.

    I'll keep this short

    Posted by MRH on 4th Jun 2019

    All the stars which maybe premature: I've only worn them once. Will never put in dryer though. Pretty blue color; nicely finished seams; & cozy feel. I'd say they run small but perhaps you won't agree. I'm not using them for cycling, but with tunics & short dresses (modesty!). Maybe they can be offered in a few more colors, hmmm?

    Great bike shorts

    Lovely shorts, I just wish, I had gotten a bigger size, they run small, but I will make them work, very nice shorts for under dresses
