Weird fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: M

I am fairly aware I have an abnormal sized body, and can generally anticipate how things are not going to fit as it should for my body type.
With shorts, the only thing I ever have to worry about is how short they will be for me because I have such long legs.
This was not the case with this particular product.
The problem for me was they were too loose. These shorts have a compression short type liner in them, though the material is very light. I always were a medium in bottoms, and was so surprised how untrue the sizing was on these.
I have a 29" (low) waist, and 39" hip. According to the size chart, my measurements do correspond with a medium.
Another thing I didn't love about them, was the waistband. It is very nice and soft and have a tie adjustment. Maybe it is because they were a tad too big for me, but the waist would slowly move up on me and didn't stay in place very well.
This definitely isn't a good product to be using for high performance running or anything of that nature.
Perhaps by sizing down it would be better...?

Way too big

    These shorts were surprisingly really big on. I am around 120 pounds and usually wear a small but the small was super big on. The spandex underneath the shorts was so loose it felt like I was wearing shorts underneath a pair of shorts. The waist band was really loose as well. I like the concept of these shorts, and they are a good quality. I was going to order the xs to see how they fit but they are sold out. So just a little heads up, I highly recommend sizing down.
