This review is for the Danskin Now Women's Plus Active Bike Shorts. Well I have to say I do love these shorts. They are so soft and comfortable. I'm very pleased with the quality and also how sharp looking they are. The black is a nice dark shade and did not fade after the first washing. The description says these shorts have a 4-way stretch and that's exactly right. They stretch with movement 4 ways just the way they claim. I also found them very breathable and just as they claimed the shorts absorbed moisture from all the sweating. I really like how the waist band does not dig in. They sit around my waist snug but not tight. And the waist band comes up just over my belly button just like I prefer. I'd like to get a few more pairs because I love just wearing these around the house too. I do a lot of bending and squatting just around the house cleaning and doing daily chores. So I'm always happy when I find shorts like these that will allow me to do that without cutting into my stomach or stretching out of shape.
