    Longer shorts!

    I've had two pairs of Terry bike shorts for 6 years or so -- I think they called the Euro shorts. They are awesome, wear like iron, but all good things wear out eventually. I really really like the length on these shorts (11") and the waist is sufficiently high. They were a serious compression fit when new, so I wear a large. Now Terry has changed the fit and the things I really liked are no longer there.

    I ordered a pair of of Terry capris last fall in a Medium and they compression fit was so intense that I felt like I was in a sausage casing, so I returned those for a large, only to find that Terry has apparently changed the fit, drastically -- the back of the shorts stood out at least an inch from my bum. There was a lot of room back there, too much to be comfortable. I'm hesitant to order another pair or Terry shorts, because the shipping costs are so high if I need to return them.

    Anyway, I was wondering if any of you have found shorts with a longer inseam (around 11 inches) and have a higher-waist fit.

    Are you looking for lycra or baggies? Lots of long short options in baggies, but women's lycra shorts tend to be too short for me... I like coverage while riding MTB!

    Lycra. I found a pair of Zoic (guy) Black Market shorts that are great for general use, but I'm fine with Lycra. Like I said, the Terry shorts with a higher waist and long inseam (11") were great until they changed the fit.

    Voler makes custom shorts... I bet they could make you some women's fit shorts with a longer leg length
