Run small

Verified Buyer Reviewed by new biker from Newtown, PA on Tuesday, June 26, 2012
I'm new to biking and decided I needed a little bit of padding because of my very uncomfortable and very unpadded seat. I ordered these in a small and they are really very small. The rise is also low, so they hit me well below my real waist (I'm 5'8") and so maybe that's why the sizing for a 25-27" inch waist doesn't apply? I have a 26 inch waist but I definitely get the muffin top effect with these. Otherwise the legs are pretty tight but not too tight, the grippies on the thighs are a little irritating on my skin but keep the legs in place. The padding is minimal which is fine for shorter rides and you don't feel like you're wearing a diaper. These were my first pair of shorts so I kept them, otherwise I would've exchanged for a medium.
