I understand the criticism I read about the elastic nature of the waste band, but decided to try anyway. With use of the padded liner, the waste band works fine. I also like to wear the shorts for casual use without the liner and that is when the waste band can be an issue. I got the medium, listed waste size 31"-33". I am a 32" and fastened all the way, they are still a touch too loose, but manageable. In my opinion the medium would be best for 33" to 35" waste. Overall I liked them, nice fabric and stitching.
