Consistent sizing - They run small, consistently

I have a 32 inch waist. My quad is 21 inches. Small fits just a little more snug than other bike shorts I have. I usually wear a medium. I compared this to an expensive, high quality, made in Italy short I have(custom by DNA Cycling). The pad on this G2 short is a little thicker. Not much though. The expensive short pad thickness varies more across the pad. But the position of the pads(where they're sewn into the short) and the dimensions of the pads are almost identical. The Italian pad is 1/4" longer and wider. The G2 pad is stiffer, but the Italian pad has two years of use. Maybe with use the G2 pad will become more flexible. This short is meant to be worn while seated on a bike saddle. If you are walking around in it, it will feel like a diaper, and look like one. They are made in China. 82% polyester, 18% spandex. The Italian shorts I have are 80% nylon and 20% spandex. The G2 fabric is heavier and stiffer. I think this G2 short is comfortable. I bought one, wore it a couple times, then bought three more. I ride 300 to 400 miles a month. Road and mountain biking.
