To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
These run really small. I bought them in the size I wear for everything else and I can barely fit into them. I’m 6’1 205 lbs and the xl is still too tight. Quality seems ok, but why is it so hard to make something true to size? Now I have to send them back, if I can, and get another size up, or eat the $25.
There also is a seam that runs across the back that chafes like crazy when I wear them for rowing. I wouldn’t recommend these at all.
Update: I threw them in the garbage after the second time the seam gouged a hole in my butt. These are really bad.
Based on the size chart I chose the XL as suggested. The body of the shorts seems too large compared to the elastic portion of the legs. The body part is slightly loose while the leg elastic part seems too tight. I cut out the pocket because of the bulk/pressure point it created under my pants belt. I use compression shorts like these under my regular clothing to prevent chaffing. The material and sewing look like it will hold up for a few years of regular use.
First of all I am not a slim person by any means, I have good sized thighs. Still the fit was perfect. Very comfortable compression shorts for running or any sort of workout. I will probably order different colors in the near future. They also come with a small pocket along the waist. This is perfect if I want to carry one door key when I go for afternoon runs. Another positive is that they are slightly longer than other compression shorts I have used in the past and they tend to stay in place very well. Thank you.
Love, love, love these. I normally have to purchase men's compression shorts because the women's versions are usually too short. These are perfect. They fell to just above my knee, the band didn't roll, and they are very comfortable. For the price these can not be beat. With other big name companies I have had to pay upwards of $40 just to be disappointed. I will be purchasing a few more of these to replace all of my other compression shorts.
So I accidentally bought these instead of a different brand. I have no idea what I was looking at when I clicked buy but after they came I put them on and was instantly pleased. It wasn't until I was laying on the couch (let's be honest, that's the real test of athletic gear, if they're so comfortable they make you want to stay on the couch they're perfect) that I realized the logo was not what I intended to order. Either way I love them, they do what they're supposed to and they pass the couch test. So here's to not paying attention to what you buy, thanks Amazon.
I'm a 36" waist. This fits perfectly. I don't use them as traditional "compression shorts". I use them under my board shorts when I'm kitesurfing. They fit more like lycra biking shorts and don't have the super snug compression. If you're looking for compression functionality, you might want to go to Large.
