these are by far my favorite base layers. i love how they fit, i'm a size 12 and thought the women's lg was a good size. i didn't feel like a sausaga in casing and felt they were soft and super comfy. i really like how they fit just above my boot and my socks can be pulled over i didn't have any gaps. wore them out for a 3-day ride trip and i wished i had more than just one. love the shant.
