Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Construction of this piece is brilliantly simple, lightweight, packable, and minimalist, but the fit is proving difficult.
My waist is ~33.5", so I ordered a large. The fit was perfect in the waist, but snug in the thighs (which I didn't think to measure). Since the material isn't stretchy at all, once I get riding (and pump my legs full of blood) it feels restrictive; not mobility-impairing, but too tight in the upper thighs, slightly impeding return circulation. Seems everyone else in my waist-size range thought the large was too big? Now I'm wondering if I should trade this out for an XL (and brave the maybe-too-loose waist?) or try the fusion (which claims a little stretch)?
