Fit Type:
Fit Note: Please do not assume your size is the same as previous years, please use our size chart and if in doubt, email us at: Triathlon apparel is meant to fit next-to-skin. This is to eliminate potential chafing, and unnecessary drag during the swim, bike and run. If you’re not comfortable with this type of fit and or are between sizes, we recommend sizing up.

Women’s Carrera short

Bought the Carrera short for my wife. Fit is nice, only issue is the drawstring came out during first wash so she has to pull shorts up continually

Hi Jim, We're sorry to hear the drawstring came out in the washing machine. Please copy and paste this link for a short "How-To-Fix" For future use we recommend tying a knot prior to washing.

Women's Carrera Tri Short

Absolutely love my Carrera Tri Shorts. I’m on my second pair. I bought the first pair after trying the 400-miler shorts. I figured if the Tri shorts were only half as good as the 400-miler shorts, it would be worth it! Not half as good but just as good! Omg. The fit is perfect. And they are so stylish! Writing this review makes me want to get another pair! Haha!

Good fit. Good quality

Liked them enough to buy in another design.

I like them, but wish they were a touch longer

I ordered the small and XS. The XS fit my waist and hips wonderfully, but felt a touch short. The small fit my waist and hips a bit loser, and in order to feel comfortable I had to pull the drawstring very snug, and it left a gap along my hips, which I did not like, BUT the SMALL had a much better length (along my thighs) in my opinion. I have worn and washed them twice, and I can definitely say they fit my hips, waist and bum wonderfully - they feel properly snug when I work out and I love the new longer padding. The ONLY CON for me is that the XS is just a touch short, if they were 1/4 inch longer they would be perfect. I would say definitely buy them, you can't beat the comfort in the proper places!

Awesome shorts

I can�۪t say enough about these shorts. This was my third pair. Fabric is so soft and comfortable, they move with your body, no binding or rubbing. I won�۪t buy anything else. Worth every penny!

The size chart above should serve as a general guide. If you would like assistance in determining the proper size, please send the following information to

BUST - Fullest part of breast, measured as the largest part of circumference right over the pectoral muscle.
WAIST -  Circumference measured at the belly-button line - this is NOT the same as your pants waist size.
HIPS - Circumference measured at the widest point, NOT at your hips where your belt may go. Typically this will measure just a few inches below your hip bones and around the largest part of the glutes.


If you do not have a tape measure and you need something to measure with, use a belt, or smart phone power cord, and a ruler.
