I've never tried the boy short and I wanted to give it a try

I'm hoping for a boyshort for hiking/backpacking/cycling that has a long enough inseam that it doesn't ride up or create unsightly lines under tight fitting clothing (cycling shorts, running tights, tight fitting baselayers).

BEST ANSWER: Hello I will pass this suggestion on to our Designers. Thanks
I am a true size 4 but prefer a Medium in Ibex Bras and Briefs. Should I size up in the Boy Shorts as well?
A shopper on May 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I wouldn't size up unless your upper thighs are very large in proportion to your waist, in which case instead of ordering according to your waist size, you might want to go up one size. I hate underwear that binds, but I find these Ibex boy shorts very comfortalbe, and they're true to the measurements on the Ibex size chart. They don't give me a panty line, even with slim jeans.
When will this be back in stock?
A shopper on Jun 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello we will have the W's Balance Boy short back in stock on our Fall/Winter line which we will launch the first week of September. Thanks

Couldn't be happier
I love these and the briefs! They are attractive, but comfortable in every circumstance. I ordered a few pairs and have been hiking, bike-riding, and climbing in them. I've never had such a comfortable pair of underwear. They are almost life changing.

Nice
I like these a lot! Read a review that said they worked well as a swimsuit in a pinch (would work well with one of the ibex bras on top too) which sold me. They're definitely a thick enough material to pass I'm public. I think most underwear sold to women today is uncomfortably tiny and these are much more to my taste. Boyfriend says they're his new favorite too! These boy shorts don't have the same sizing issues as the bra. I'm an XS in ibex pants and the S in these fits perfectly. The M is ok, but a bit loose.

Cute base layer
These shorts are really cute and super comfortable. Great to wear as base layer to stop chafe and add warmth under river shorts. Fun to wear with every day clothes too. Black color is not transparent so you can wear them as shorts or a swimsuit if you like.

typical boy short problems
These do ride/roll up, just like other boy shorts. They are also thick. Too hot to wear in the summer or under thin/ light clothes.
