fit & feel

Love how these feel, wool is my new best friend. The fit is great, just enough hug but not too much. Wear these under dresses and skirts or with a sports bra for yoga! I have the rose color for under dresses and the black for yoga. I wear them with my wool bikini undies and they are good for many days before I feel the need to wash them. Mostly I just hang them at night and they are ready to go the next day. I felt weird not putting them in the laundry every time I wore them but then I remembered my mom, who spent a good part of her youth in Europe and wore lots of Italian wool clothing. She had a top for over 20 years that had never been laundered, just spot cleaned. She said that was how they treated wool clothing and it never held a smell. I recently took a trip to Portugal and a trans-Atlantic cruise home with all wool wardrobe ( One Willow dress, one Axis legging, 2 wool t-shirts, one Frankie short, 2 wool bikini undies and 2 wool braletts. A couple of scarfs and a bit of jewelry for accessories.) Just a quick rinse when needed, I brought a small bottle of wool washing soap for any smelly bits, then rolled in a towel and then an overnight hang or a quick hit with a cool blow dryer and all was ready to go again. Best of all, It all fit in a little under the airplane seat bag. LOVED it!! Hubby thought I looked great every day.

Not the long wool boxers of my dreams, but very comfortable

I'm not sure I would have thought to buy these on my own, but when I found that all the t-shirt colors I liked were sold out in my size for the November free gift, I decided to give them a try. I'll start by noting that I am wearing these as underwear, not as shorts. I don't think they would work as shorts on their own: they're too transparent. As chub-rub shorts paired with other undies they're probably fine, but I don't want that many extra layers personally. I am much too spoiled by my 9-inch inseam gender neutral boxer briefs from another brand I won't mention here.

As a wool replacement for those boxer briefs, these have a lot of potential. They're a good length, long enough to prevent thigh chafe, and they stay in place impressively well. The fit is good, exactly as suggested by the size chart. The material is both soft and stretchy and not at all itchy (very important in underwear). The wool handles sweat better than my usual cotton underwear. While the fabric is thin, it feels sturdy enough.

The main downside here is the high waist. Yes, the hidden pocket in the waistband is nice, but I am just never going to like high waists. They always end up feeling constricting around my stomach. I can roll the waistband down, but then there's more bulk than I'd like from a pair of underwear, especially if I'm pairing them with my new Axis leggings and also rolling down the waistband on those. If you like high waists, as I know a lot of people do, I highly recommend these.

At this price point, I'm not inclined to pick up another pair when the waist isn't what I like. When warm weather comes around again, we'll see if I end up reaching for these more or sticking with my usual cotton boxers. Maybe the wool will turn out to be worth the high waist. Make a mid-rise version, especially with another inch or two to the legs, and I'll snap them up in a heartbeat.

THANK YOU!!! You made lighter colors!

Thank you so much for making lighter colors for the Frankie bike short. I wear these as undies, but black shows through the lighter color dresses. I've bought bother the Cinnamon and Light Rose colors. Thank you for listening to my previous review requesting an almond type color. I've a 33 inch waist and 40 inch hips, and the size L fits a bit loose, but I don't like tight clothing. I'm normally a M in the Wool& dresses.

Honestly the best

I recently took a trip to Europe. I’m a thicker girl and walked about 10 miles a day. Ineeded something to go under my dresses to avoid chub rub. Mind you, I have a freaking draw full of these types of shorts. None of them were wear and forget. I took a chance on these pricier shorts and can’t recommend them enough. No ride up, no roll down, stays in place, and super comfortable. I wore them several days in a row before washing. Zero smell. I did wear merino underwear underneath the shorts. A+++ Get a pair to wear under your skirts and dresses!

Needs 2 pockets and a tan color.

I've already written about how the Frankie is my all time favorite underpants. I have one pair that has 2 pockets. One on each side of the inside of the waistband. I ordered more and the new ones have one pocket. I hope you plan on making them with two pockets in the future.

Also, I'd love these to come in a tan or almond color for under lighter dresses. The black shows through on my lighter colored clothing.

wearing merino comes with advantages
