Castelli is an awesome, well made product in general. However, they make different lines for the hardcore racer types who have minimal body fat and relatively few curves on their bodies. Hence some of their apparel doesn't fit those of us that have the somewhat womanly curved body. However, this short works very well on my size 14 athletic woman body. I got a size XL because I know Castelli runs a bit small. These fit very well, the chamois pad stays put, no slipping side to side on long rides, the waist band is snugly comfortable. For comparison of sizing: In Pearl Izumi shorts I usually wear a size L.
