Frankie stays on!

So I finally caved, after having bought a nearby endless amounts of cheaper bike shorts that kept riding up, up, up and leave you having to rearrange yourself time and time again... These one stays. I've worn them on for several weeks and they don't loose shape or ride up. Just like the other wool&-items, you don't have to worry about smells lingering on after a day's wear. I am very pleased with these, and very happy that I put a little extra money in this time. Both the black and the pink Frankie works like a charm. The only thing one has to get used to is the sensation of slightly looser waist and slightly tighter thigh-seam, which feels a bit odd at first. This, however, is what makes Frankie work better than any other bike shorts I've tried.


I love the Frankie shorts to wear as underwear, this is not my first pair...

Big waist! More or a base layer than a short

I’m exchanging these for a smaller size. First impression is that I’ll be happy to wear these under skirts, but wouldn’t wear them as shorts.

Definitely not opaque

These shorts are sadly see-through. I'm really disappointed because I'd never wear them at any point except for under a dress. I'd very much planned to wear them for sports/hiking as well as pj's too, but I won't be able to.

I usually wear an S in Wool&, although I am typically an M in other clothes. I ordered M in these shorts because I was specifically looking for them to be opaque and didn't want them stretching to the maximum. But it definitely didn't help in that area.

Unless you want these shorts only under dresses, pass on them and try one of the other styles. I wish I had.

We're so sorry that the Frankie bike shorts didn't work as expected! These shorts are intended to be worn under dresses and skirts, as they are made from our lightweight stretch jersey, a fabric intended as an underlayer. If you're interested in something more opaque, we'd recommend our Summit pocket bike short. Don't hesitate to reach out to our helpdesk at if you need any help getting an exchange started!


Very nice short, perfect to wear under dresses to avoid static

They really fit absolutely comfortably. Don't squeeze the belly and no matter how much I move (walking, biking), the legs don't roll up.
Happy, I ordered 2 and can only highly recommend.

Fabulous as underwear

I have worn these under dresses and they are fantastically comfortable. A bit pricey for what is basically underwear, but so nice!

Great for a travel capsule wardrobe

I wear the Frankie and Essential Tank under my dresses when travelling, then use them as pyjamas at night. Makes for less weight to lug through an airport or train station.
Not see-through so I also wear it for yoga or hiking and have not had a problem with the legs rolling up or bunching. The wee waist pocket is just right for a house key, lip balm or bit of cash.
I am between a Medium and Large in bottoms so got the Medium since Wooland products tend to relax and conform to my shape.

wearing merino comes with advantages
