        Comments about Nashbar Women's Gel Ride Short:

        I recently bought one pair of shorts in a store in a size medium, they were a little big so when I ordered this pair, I stuck with the medium size...they are significantly smaller. Different brands. So I would definitely suggest becoming familiar with how each brand runs

            I like the fit and feel of these shorts but not long after purchase the padding flipped over inside the pocket. No amount of massaging would flip it over inside. I will be returning.

            Used to wear a medium but apparently sizes have shrunk. I didn't gain any weight and now wear an X-LG.... I ordered a medium and had to go as far as an X-Lg in able to get the shorts over my thigh. Never had I had to wear an X-LG...
            Now I do....

                  Comments about Nashbar Women's Gel Ride Short:

                  I've tried a lot of different bike shorts and these are by far the most comfortable ever. I just wore them on a 70 mile loop on forest service roads and had no rear end pain after 6 hours in the saddle. My husband was so jealous that I ordered him a pair of the men's when we got home. They are on the tighter side, as most bike clothes seem to run, but I'm 5'4", 110 lbs, and the small worked fine. I'm ordering another pair now! (The padding is thick- but doesn't compromise motion at all. Doesn't feel too bulky either).

                      I bought size large and would normally buy a medium. The large size was too small. The pad is nice, but very bulky.

                          Was looking forward to using these fairly priced gel shorts and disappointed to have to return them as they were too small.

                          I was looking for a gel chamois to try. I wear a women's size 8 and medium was very tight.

                              By looking at the photo and the different views of the short, it seems like it would be normal length. It barely clears the padding. I would not recommend unless you are looking for an extremely short-short.

                                  I ride daily in all kinds of weather. The fit in the leg is too short and looks odd in between the leg.
