I was really excited for these pair of shorts, and ordered the size that I typically wear in other brands. However, they were extremely tight and I couldn't even get them to button. I ordered the next size up, and these were also way, way too tight and very uncomfortable. I am hesitant to purchase the next size up, which would be double my current size, because I'm not sure if they will also be too tight or fit me strangely. I'm really disappointed and so sad they haven't worked out as I have been looking forward to a pair of these for quite some time now!
