Fascinating...my review of these shorts was deleted. Hmmmmm. I bought these in black and in pink. The black smalls were awesome. Love the shorts, love the chamois, just a perfect short! The PINK version however fits nothing like the black. Totally different. I could barely get the smalls on because they were sooooo tight. I exchanged them for a medium. Super tight AGAIN. They "fit" enough to get them on but were awful. It was like different sizes of shorts were all pieced together to make this pair. The waist was ok, the butt/hips was very tight but possibly workable, the leg bands were atrocious and beyond skin tight...like cutting off circulation kind of tight. It was odd to say the least. I have pretty thin legs and the leg bands of the shorts were just unwearable. I am totally baffled because the black shorts and the pink shorts are supposed to be identical and there is nothing even remotely similar between the two.
