Review about items
I ordered these chausses and they came as promised. They were of excellent construction. If you live in a warm climate, however, be sure to only get 1 layer of padding. I got two layers and it was quite thick. I had my seamstress friend cut out one layer of padding. I may have her open up some vents too, but that's only because of the California heat. If thick, comfy padding is what you're after, this is the right product for you.
