Perfect for the hot summer!

I live in Middle Tennessee and it can be very hot and humid. These bike shorts are keeping my legs from chafing and keeping the sweaty bits aired out. My non-wool biker shorts get very moist and smelly by the end of the day and do not smell better unless washed. My Wool& Bike Shorts can be worn multiple days when necessary. I like they are light and not too tight.

Helps with the summer heat!

I bought these shorts because I'm 7 months pregnant in summer and can really only wear skirts but kept getting too sweaty and uncomfortable under them. I didn't want to spend the money on maternity shorts that were wool and not be able to wear them later so I sized up and took a chance on these. They actually help keep me much cooler in summer from the wicking action of the wool and are the most comfortable underlayer I have! I'm hoping after the baby I will still be able to wear them but we will see. My normal size is about a medium at 145 lbs and 5'9" tall but right now I'm at about 170 and wearing a large just fine. I agree with a few other reviews that the legs seemed a bit tight on my thighs but noticed the fabric loosened after a few wears and fit fine now (I would say I'm pretty pear shaped overall).

Wonderful under garment!

This under garment is terrific with dresses & to make skirts more comfortable than traditional skorts. I’ve been wearing the Frankie in very hot humid weather & they feel dry & comfy (thank you merino wool). I find they loosen a bit with wear, not enough to size down though. I only wash occasionally in cold water & air dry. Otherwise just air out between wearing.

Nice lightweight option

I wear an XL in both the Summits and the Frankie. My hips/legs are my biggest measurements and the same size works for me in both. The Frankie legs are more snug, but not uncomfortably so, and they don’t leave a mark on my legs where the hem hits. I like both styles for different purposes. The Summits I use for travel pj shorts and under dresses and the Frankies are nice under dresses in hotter weather. I got these in rose so I can wear them under lighter color dresses.

Comfortable and attractive

They look like a second skin! The fabric is light yet supportive. The waistband doesn't twist. The legs stay put. They are cool in summer warm in winter like wool is supposed to be. Can be warn alone! Nice double layer crotch! I got the 1x. True to size but don't buy them too tight! These are my new favorite thing to wear!
