Comments about De Marchi Women's Contour Short:

Due to previous comments I bought 2 sizes up (XL vs M) and glad I did. Like the chamois and the short is comfortable. Only drawback: the way the tags were sewn in made for a very uncomfortable ride....I snipped them off after the first ride and it's been nice riding since.

    Comments about De Marchi Women's Contour Short:

    The chamois shape in these shorts is different than most. It is thick, but was comfy on the two rides I've been on (first was 71 miles, and the second was the very slow Ride of Silence). It is on the hot side because of the thickness, but I still thought they were very comfortable.

    Comments about De Marchi Women's Contour Short:

    I needed another pair of bike shorts and usually wear pear izumi's but I was looking for a deal. I came across these De Marchi shorts and got a good deal. These are average shorts and glad I didn't pay full price. The padding is good, but the seams are in weird places. I can feel them running across my butt and they are not comfortable. Also the drawstring sticks out in the front of the short, it's not built in which I do not like. Last, I'm glad I read the sizing chart b/c I am a size 8-10 womens and typically wear a size large in bike shorts, but according to the size chart, it said I was an XXL. So I ordered an XXL and they did fit. Make sure you read the sizing chart or plan to return or loose like 10 lbs. Overall, not too impressed, I'm going back to pearl izumi.

      Comments about De Marchi Women's Contour Short:

      Wow, they fit! I am slender & long waisted. This is the only brand I've found that fits me properly. I especially like the placement & density of the padding. No 'breaking in' period for these shorts. Even without 'grippers' on the legs, the shorts stay in place. If washed in cold water and air dried, this brand of shorts gives me 3 seasons before the dreaded 'see through' areas start showing up. Great brand. Great value.

        Comments about De Marchi Women's Contour Short:

        This has become my favorite pair of shorts. I always reach for these first. I need at least one more pair or I need to do laundry more often. I am a size 6. They are snug, which i find comfortable. (I don't like catching a baggy chamois on the nose of the seat when I get on or am riding technical trails). I have ridden up to 120 miles in them a good part in rain without any chaffing. Can't beat that.

          Comments about De Marchi Women's Contour Short:

          I wear a size 6 in pants/shorts so I ordered a medium. These shorts are quite snug fitting, but I rode in them and they were comfortable. The elastic bands on the legs felt a bit too tight, but once again they did not bother me when I was riding. Overall, I really like the shorts.

          fits a little small, but right out of the package both side stitching were coming out without using them.
          Should have been seen by the packer.

          Buyer Beware

          • Good Padding

          Cons

          Best Uses

          • Cold Weather
          • Long Rides
          • Road Biking

          Comments about De Marchi Women's Contour Short:

          I have tried two pairs of these shorts. The seams and logo in both pair came undone after one wear and wash. The logo is not as pictured; instead of it being a small rooster between De and Marchi, it is actually a big rooster with De Marchi under it. When you put the shorts on the legs will obviously stretch, this causes the logo's edges to peel off, and after one wash, to peel off even more. The logo looks like it was ironed on and not silk screened/painted on.

          I have read a lot about how De Marchi is a great brand with superior product; I would have to say the opposite for these. Granted, they are very comfortable for long rids. I just don't see the sense in investing money into something that doesn't last longer than one wear.

          Also, they are best for cooler weather, your thighs will get extremely hot when riding in hot/direct sunlight.

            Comments about De Marchi Women's Contour Short:

            Just finished a 100-mile ride without chafing or problems (Terry butterfly saddle and Palmer's Shea Butter chamois cream). I'm 5'3 and 133 lbs (29-inch waist / size 8). The large fits perfectly. The waist is high enough to cover you adequately when you're leaning forward in the saddle. The chamois looks like the EIT "W10". It's soft and has multilevel, seamless construction. There's enough padding, but it isn't diaper-like. The seam attaching the chamois to the short is pretty flat, and it wasn't noticeable during the ride. The short has panel construction and the fabric is great. (Stretchier than my other shorts, yet holds everything in better.) Made in Italy. I can't yet comment on durability.
