▹ Should I wear underwear with these shorts?
Pleasantly surprised at how good these are. Fit well, really comfortable to ride in and works with a variety of outers. Great value & quality.
These liners are so super light and comfy - I love them, and can't imagine wearing anything else now.
Have just been to Japan for three weeks cycling and wore my brand new dovetails under my brand new Martinis. My long lasting baggies that I first wore in 2005 were finally falling to pieces. Tip...... Clothes last longer when they don't get washed too often as often happens on long distance tours. Disadvantage is that you have to wear ****** except on the day you know you are heading to a washing machine. My bottom was very comfortable and I found the dovetails, mostly, extremely comfortable under the Martinis, very streamlined and it was great only having to take one pair of shorts as once the dovetails were whipped off at the end of the day I put the Martinis back on. They were washed once in three weeks! BUT, I wasn't used to the tightness of the dovetails's legs and I have checked and the elastic band on the legs is three times as wide as my old ones. I got used to the tight feeling except when it was particularly hot... Say 27 degrees and when it was hot and humid I did get rather bothered. When I got off my bike on such days I felt like I had a nappy on and it had had been on too long and I was desperate to get them off. On cooler days I had no such problems. Even when they were new, many years ago I can't remember any such feelings with the baggies. I'm off again in a couple of weeks and I am eyeing up my old pair! But I will take the new ones as well and keep them for the cooler/cold wet days when they will be fantastic, warm and snug.
My new Dovetails are super lightweight and a great fit. Cool and comfortable under all of my riding shorts. Will be buying a second pair very soon!
My husband bought me these to replace an old pair of Cima’s. At first I thought they were a little strange as the material was so light. But after my first ride in them under my baggiesI am completely sold. Super comfy and you barely know you have them on.
