If you like a big thick chamois, this short will probably work for you. Personally, I don't like big thick chamois, as i feel like I have a diaper on. I found over the years from cycling, that the thicker plushier chamoises are not more comfortable, and in fact I think there is an inverse relationship between the two. YEs, the first ride or two of the season, your deriere is not going to feel great in any chamois. After that, the chamois does matter. My male riding buddy could not understand why I would complain that my derriere hurts after mile 20. It is not my saddle. He insisted on looking at my cycling shorts when the ride was over one day. So, I went into the ladies room where we parked, took them off, and turn them inside out and walked out with my street shorts on. One look at them and he told me, this chamois is just too big , dense, and thick. Less is more according to him. So my next pair of cycling shorts had a smaller, less thick, and less dense chamois. ANd, guess what, my derrierer did not hurt anymore. Sorry to say ladies that I had to learn this from a man, but I did.
