GENERAL NOTES ON FIT
for swrve bottoms, we strive to be as true to size as possible. most other companies offer vanity sizing, but with us, a 32 means the waist circumference of the garment is 32". we update our size guides to provide the current sizing per garment frequently.
if you have trousers of which you like the fit, measure the waist and that is the swrve size! to measure the waist, lay them flat and make sure the front and back of the waistband lay evenly across each other, then measure from side to side (fold to fold on the inside), multiply by 2 (there are 2 layers of fabric) and voilà, you’ve got your measurement.
for swrve tops, please note our fit is a slimmer European fit similar to American Apparel's fit

attention Canadian customers! our system will offer you UPS as a shipping option that may seem attractive, but we suggest NOT using UPS for orders going to Canada as they sometimes present you with a separate and additional customs clearance bill (on top of the customs duty) for $50 or more. eek!

a staple of my closet
i’ve long been a fan of swrve knickers and these are no exception. i really like the small pocket on the regular knickers and so i requested that one be added to my skinny knickers as well. love these
Love the Knickers!!
Over the last few years they have been hard to find on stock but these are my favorite knickers!!
We will truly know when I have had them a year. I bought my last pair of knickers and I liked them enough to buy these. I am a bit portly for my height so I have some cut off. I like knickers, not Capri pants. These appear more durable than the last. I do ride and I wear out my riding gear. I expect these pants to last even longer since the material is stronger.
Great knickers but limited sizes available
These knickers are well made with quality materials. But size availability was limited and after checking the size chart for these knickers I wanted to order size 33 but were not available in that size. I have other Swrve shorts and knickers in size 32 so I went ahead and ordered the 32’s. Due to the “skinny” fit these were uncomfortably snug. I returned and got the durable cotton regular knickers in size 32 (33 was not available in the regular cut knickers either) but am happy with the fit of the regular knickers. I commute to work on bike and I think the heavier fabric will be great for the cooler fall weather.
Certainly durable - I wish more breathable
The fit is pretty great despite having reasonably big cyclist thighs. No flapping material in the wind slowing you down. However, even on 65 degree days on a 13 mile one-way commute I found they got very hot. Due to cotton material they seem to hold moisture a bit too. Probably will be great for fall conditions and appear to be very well constructed.
