I wouldn't trade it for nothing. I and my daughters luv the ab carver. It makes exercising your abs so much easier.
Having used a similar product in the past (brand is unknown) I feel this product performed quite well and will serve me well.
Love the removable straps and high waist. Fit really well and great quality! I love that it comes in so many color/pattern choices.
I keep replacing my Merrills with same type for 10+ years because they are so comfortable and supportive.
I was tempted to leave 4 stars because, although the fit well, the shorts are a bit long for my liking. However, that should not be a minus, it is just that I don't like shorts all the way to the knee. Other than that, the cushioning is great, perhaps some of the nicest shorts I have owned at very affordable price. These are great biking shorts.
