I got these primarily to work in - I'm a therapist and need to move freely but still look smart - I usually work in long pants but with the warm weather wanted something a bit shorter. The sizing is quite generous - I could have got small but went with medium as I wanted a looser fit over my quads (I'm a cyclist too). I'd say the medium equates to a UK 12/14 (generous 12). They fit the bill and I love the lightweight, stretchy fabric. The cuffs on the leg are very soft, so no digging in and you can wear pulled up or down. I'm going to buy a few more pairs as they are great for doing yoga in, coming back from the gym and just running errands in the warm weather. Note that this type of fabric may not be the most hardwearing - you can get little 'pulls' if you have a shoulder bag or something that continually rubs on it - but this is a characteristic of the fabric - I've had pants made from a very similar fabric (far more expensive, I'd like to add) that have suffered in the same way, but it's the price you pay for a very lightweight and comfortable fabric that dries super fast. Please don't stop making them and a long version would be great too!
The trousers are a good fit, very comfortable and ideal for what I wanted them for-running and the gym
Love my gym cropped to users.... The fabric is super confy
