    Default Irrideon Cadence Full Seat Breeches?

    For those that wear the Cadence Full seat breeches; do they stretch out at all when riding? Do they shrink up at all with washing? I have tried on a couple sizes and not sure which size to get; one size is very form fitting snug fit but comfortable, but I would not want any shrinkage, another size is comfy but a tiny bit loose, so a tiny bit of shrinkage would be o.k. Should I go with snug fit size or slightly loose fit sized to allow for a little shrinkage when washed? Thanks

    They get a bit looser after a couple of days but then shrink up again to their original size when you wash them. I'd go for the pair that are snug but comfortable. I think they are meant to be a bit snug for support.

    I agree with Vesper Sparrow. BTW, the Irideon Cadence are my new faves. Simply divine.

    I find that over time they do stretch out a little, but for the most part - the size you buy, is the size that they are. LOVE them :-)

    Me too. I have 4 pair, 2 of which I've had for years and are finally wearing out in the seat. But the stretchy material is good as new.
