What Our Customers Say
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

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

This are really comfy shorts, and very well made❤❤❤

I've ordered these shorts a few times now-they work really well under dresses and skirts. I noticed in my new order that the waistband feels improved. It may be because I changed the size I usually order but it's far more comfortable being a bit wider. I hope they will last a bit longer this time because the fit is the best I've found.
bike shorts to wear all day
Posted by Charlene Becerra on 10th May 2019
I love the all cotton short leggings to wear under skirts. I only wish they had them in larger sizes. I get the extra large and I am not all that "extra large". I'm a size 12 and don't like things tight on my waist. They are still a bit tight on me. I have so many fit active friends who would not fit in them. Perhaps make a larger size and/or shift you sizing down? Thanks for considering.

These shorts are comfortable and soft. I wear them underneath dresses and skirts (I bike a lot) and they provide an extra layer of coverage without being too hot. The only thing I don't like is that the pant part sometimes rolls up and needs adjusting, but I think that's normal for this type of shorts and my body. :) Overall, they are comfy, useful, and durable!
AIR FLOWS FREE
Posted by Elli on 13th May 2018
Cotton is brilliant at letting air flow; all the synthetics out there trap moisture and make things just extra frustrating. These are snug and comfortable from when I put them on to the end of a busy day on my feet 9 hours later.
Comfortable and practical

I like to wear bike shorts under a skirt to prevent chafing, and because it gives me a sense of freedom to be active even if my skirt is a little short. These bike shorts are super soft, and I love that there's no uncomfortable inside seam.
Just what I wanted

I got these to wear under skirts and dresses since I work with children and it gets very hot in the summer. They are just what I was looking for.

These bike shorts are great. I bought them for wearing under skirts in warm weather (to prevent thigh chafing), and they are much softer than other bike shorts I own. The fit is good, accommodating the extra flesh in the back well.
They are about an inch longer in the leg than I would prefer, but that's just a nitpick.
I wish they came in more colors!

Immediately felt comfortable; it has a thicker waistband than my other leggings, so it doesn't cut into the skin as much. I run right between the medium and large and I got the medium, they're snug but I like it that way.
Great, comfortable bike shorts!

Thus far, I'm very happy with my purchase! These shorts are really comfortable and great for working out or wearing under dresses/tunics. I like that they're pretty long and, although they do ride up slightly, they generally stay in place as you move around.
great little black shorts

i love them for yoga and for wearing under a summer dress.
Posted by Becks on 30th Jul 2017
Tried them on as soon as they arrived to make sure size was accurate and they fit. Haven't used them for cycling yet.

These are great. I purchased to go under my padded bike shorts. Those foam laden pads on the other shorts are no good for the female parts. These work perfectly for what I had intended..
