Because you can’t wear your cycling kit to work
Gore Bike Wear’s Women’s Base Layer Short allows you to commute in comfort by adding inconspicuous support to your workaday wardrobe. The Base Layer short is designed to worn under your pants or shorts and is made with a thin and soft polypropylene/elastane blend that manages moisture to keep you dry. The Contest Lady chamois is flexible and uses variable-density padding to provide support and mobility where you need it most. The Base Layer shorts also feature smooth flat-lock seams and an elastic waistband that is brushed on the inside to ensure that you stay comfortable all day long.

- Q & A
Leg band a little tight
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: extra small
Unfortunately I lost my favorite chamois, so I'm stuck using this one, which was formerly my backup.
It gets the job done, but the elastic in the leg opening is not very stretchy and cuts in to my thigh.
However, I do like the shorter length, as they are disguised under regular shorts.
I'm usually a size 2, or 26 in pants.
Are these a practical choice for someone...
Are these a practical choice for someone who is short-waisted? I have a wonderful Novara cycling skirt that I love, only issue I have is that it comes up to my armpits! Okay, slight exaggeration, but my armpits and natural waist are not too far from each other. Anyone with any knowledge on this subject? P.s. I am 5 foot 6 inches and weigh 120 lbs. the Novara skirt to which I refer is a size small.
