Perfect for my purposes

The fabric is slightly sheer as advertised. This is absolutely fine for my purposes. I use these Frankie shorts as PJ bottoms with a longish top over them and also as underwear beneath dresses. They are very comfortable & perfect for travel. I would also love some in a longer knee length.

Better than a slip!

I bought these to replace a short white or black slip that I wear under my dresses. I like these shorts much better than a slip. While I bought a medium - I think I also could have bought a small. The medium fits without being very snug - which is better for me since I have bladder issues.

Beautiful and comfortable

I am a dedicated pants wearer. I discovered Wool& through a link in an article about best travel pants. I now have three Wool& dresses, two pairs of pants, two tunics, one Stella, one Sloan, Roam bra and underpants, lightweight leggings and an appointment to donate 40 or so garments to a welfare-to-work nonprofit. I'm done with fake fabrics.

Now, about the Frankie bike short. For me, these a triple win. I wear my Willow, my Rowena and Sofia, but I felt a little exposed or something with bare legs underneath since I am used to pants. These bike shorts bridge the gap. They are comfortable and help me to feel just covered enough to be comfortable wearing dresses. Purely psychological, I assure you. The bike shorts are not tight but do fit firmly. Since I am still about 15 pounds overweight, when I sit down, there is a noticeable dip on my thighs where the bike shorts end, but you'd really have to be looking for it.

Also wanted to add that there are plenty of other merino wool clothing companies out there, but I've always sent their garments back. Wool& colors are just prettier than other companies. So are the designs. Wool& dresses have nicer touches like the gathered back shoulder seam. I'm a huge fan. Thank you.

Proportions off

Too large in the waist and tight in the thigh. Ordered size indicated on chart. I would need to size down one for waist and not for the thigh so will have to return. Lovely fabric.

We're sad to hear that Frankie wasn't the right fit for you! If you have any fit or style questions, we're always here to help at

My go to

These bike shorts are my perfect under dress item for comfort and, in my case, chub rub. The rose color is a nice neutral.
