Sizing on these is tricky. Do visit Orca's website before you order-- you really need to understand what the sizes mean.
These aren't fashion shorts-- they're serious compression gear, and they're going to be tight. That being said, I think these run a little small even based on Orca's own sizing chart. Waist and the bands at the bottom of the legs are particularly tight. The real reason I returned these was not sizing, per se, though. I normally wear CW-X compression gear, and their tights come up to my natural waist. These Orca shorts have a lower rise, and I didn't like the feeling that they were slipping down. I could foresee that becoming a real issue during a long run.
If these do fit you well, I think they'd be decent compression shorts and certainly a good deal for the money.
