The people who know about these things told us we need longer product descriptions to satisfy google (our overlord of online searches). Did you know A.I. can write production descriptions now?? All we have to do is give it some appropriate key words and boom! So easy! Look at this masterpiece. We got a kick out of this one.

 

"High Rise Bike Shorts Balance by Lisa Congdon combine superior organic cotton fabric, a unique array of colorful shapes and a fun print, all locally designed. The snug fit makes them perfect for both bicyclists and loungers."

 

Here are the keywords we provided: organic cotton, colorful shapes, fun print, locally, designed, shorts, snug fit, bicycling, lounging.

The Bike Shorts are sized SM - 3XL and made with the same signature 90/10 organic cotton/spandex fabric as our undies. They are designed with a 4” wide double lined waistband that sits high on the waist, and a tight fitting leg ending about mid-thigh. The Bike Shorts are perfect for wearing under skirts and dresses to eliminate the dreaded thigh rub! They can be worn alone as well, but the material might feel thinner than a traditional legging (depending on the brand) so comfort levels may vary!

Inseam measures from 8.5” - 9”, SM - 3XL

**Note: these are NOT the same as the undershorts TPNZ makes. These are tight-fitting bike shorts with a big band waist.

Thunderpants 90% organic cotton/10% spandex fabric is sturdy, very stretchy, and has great retention to give our garments just enough stretch and bounce back. It helps the undies to stay up and on, and the other garments to keep their shape without sagging or bagging. We use the same soft organic cotton blend to cut our binding into a wide strip instead of using elastic so their is never any irritating elastic against your skin. All the garments are made locally and lovingly in Portland, OR.

To preserve the vibrant colors and life of the fabric we suggest you do not soak or bleach your Thunderpants items. Use a gentle detergent in a cold machine wash and dry your Thunderpants on the line (they will survive drying on low, but may fade a bit and cut down slightly on longevity). If you do wash warm or dry, make sure not to use too much heat as heat will break down the spandex!
