Do not rely on size charts

Verified Buyer Reviewed by cj from SW MI on Friday, July 13, 2012
I read the size charts which indicated at my size 12 I should get an XL. Reviewers said the shorts ran big so I ordered the L instead. It was still way to big in the waist and legs. I then ordered a M and it is ok but there is no way I am a size 8 (unfortunately). The legs may be cut big as thighs of avid bike riders are large, but the overall sizing is way off. The padding however is great and should be nice for longer rides. I am keeping the M even though the legs don't offer much compression, but the padding is great & the waist fits pretty well. The material is thinner than other bike shorts I own so they should be cooler in this horrifically hot weather we have now.
