Size Guide

 

UK Size 

(we find in practice that the sizes work out as)

Waist Hips

How to Measure?

Waist: Bend to one side to find the natural indentation in your torso. This is your natural waist. Run a measuring tape around your natural waistline, keeping the tape parallel with floor and one finger between your body and tape for a more comfortable fit.

Hip: Stand on a level surface with your feet together. Measure around the fullest part of your hips and bottom (approximately 7-9in/18-23cm below waistline), keeping the tape parallel with the floor.

Who's Behind It?

Urbanist Cycling are a small design outfit based in Austen, Texas - a true hub of US cycling. Their 'lightbulb moment' was to decide to create beautiful underwear that could be used practically and flatteringly for riding a bike.

In their words: 'We aspire to create products that enable people to live in the city and commute on their bikes. We don’t think you should have to sacrifice style, convenience or comfort to do so'. Hear hear, we say.

Others agreed. Their KickStarter fund raising programme earned them 250% of their target sum and they were off, with real inspiration and passion to produce an ever growing range. We have high hopes for them. True creative pioneers for women's cycling.

  1. Really cute and comfortable!

    Review by Lucia (Posted on October 28, 2016)

    These are actually really cute and comfortable and well made. I plan to wear them while mountain biking. It would be nice for them to expand their line to include a boy short version - with a bit more material, and with slightly thinner padding, but otherwise no complaints. Love the designs!

  2. Really pleased

    Review by Sandra (Posted on September 03, 2016)

  3. Brilliant!

    Review by crose (Posted on August 07, 2016)

    purchased two pairs of Urbanist knickers for my annual cycle tour.
    They were perfect! Excellent padding,fitted perfectly under my (non cycle)shorts and I not embarrased to hang them out on the washing line at the camp site.

  4. Brilliant

    Review by doonhamer5 (Posted on October 04, 2015)

    These are excellent - really comfortable and do not show under clothes. Great for cycling to work on a 23 mile round trip.
