I have been searching for several years for the ultimate in comfort in cycling shorts and at last have found" the one". For the cost, these are excellent shorts. The chamois is the perfect thickness. Some brands overpad the front, resulting in that horrible numb feeling. Others too much in the rear saddle area. Not these. For the price, they are great. The fabric is supportive and wicks away moisture on those upper 80 degree days nicely. The waist band is truly non binding. I wear a Small, it feels a little loose in the waist, but does not slip or gap, but hugs the body nicely. I plan on purchasing several more pairs. I have ridden in these at least two dozen times, and these are still comfortable at the 3 hour mark.
