Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Yeah - great shorts but run small. Reading the reviews I went XXL - normally take an Xl - but really I reckon I could get away with XXXL - and I have not for Arnies thighs ! Superbly made shorts and the compression feeling on the thihgs is good when riding - they feel tight walking around when you first put them on but when riding they are great and help with muscle fatigue etc - like skins...
Great Shorts just go at least one size up i I have this problem in their jerseys as well - made for kinny Italians..

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous As has been mentioned above, these are very tight on the thighs - and mine are not of Hoy dimensions. I know Italian sizing is on the small size so I chose a Large as a matter of course but even then they are tight. But if you like good support without being unduly constricted, that's OK. I use them on the turbo trainer and will use them for the MTB. Fantastic value and, as with all Giordana, Italian manufactured.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Have been wearing these on the commute to and from work and found them very good indeed. The sizing might be a worry for people, going on reviews I have read, so if it helps, I am 6' 2" with a 35" waist and the XL is a good comfy,(but snug) fit. Seem a pretty good quality short and am hoping they will last well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous These shorts are built well however they run incredibly small. If you have muscular thighs you'll have true issues just pulling the shorts over your quads.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Great shorts but agree that they are on the tight side. I'm 36 in waist and should fit the XL size according to a chart on the web but think an XXL would have been a better fit.......need to lose a pound or two!!!! ;-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Sizing is on the tight side so go up a size if unsure.
