I love these shorts! I also have a pair of the Pro Shorts, which I've had for many years. Even after many washes (cold water, line dry), they are still perfect and do not ride up or get stretched out. These new Stabilyx shorts are made specifically for the hip flexors and IT band. I got the medium shorts for me are a perfect (and snug) fit. I'm approximately a size 6, waist is about 28 inches, hips about 38 inches. These shorts are definitely worth the price--the nicest shorts I have ever run in--period.

I purchased these shorts as I trained for my second marathon, while running about 40-50 miles a week. I am 5' 7" and 155 lbs and I wear compression shorts to prevent my thighs from rubbing while I run. The length was nice and a medium fit me well. While the tummy panel rivals most girdles, looking sleek is not my number one requirement in running gear. Function is far more important and unfortunately these shorts fail to deliver high quality. To my sheer dismay, the seams on the inner thighs of these shorts wore out after only 6 weeks of wearing them! The seams split in the middle of a 16 mile run and caused some extreme chafing and discomfort. I was extremely disappointed with the quality of these shorts for the price. However, my sadness was slightly alleviated by Zappos' excellent customer service.

The first time I wore them running it was uncomfortable because they felt too tight, but I am used to wearing them now. I cut out the drawstring in the waist (not needed) and the small patch of extra fabric in the crotch (I guess if you wear them commando-style?) and they fit great now. Really holds in the gut nicely.

These are the best workout shorts I\'ve ever owned. Expensive, but well worth the price for the support and comfort. Very true to size chart -- if they are hard to pull on the first time, you have the right size!

The style is fine however they are very very tight. Maybe they're supposed to be but I'd be more comfortable with a size up. Maybe they'll be more comfortable when it isn't so hot outside. Once they're on (which requires a specific strategy) they are like a second skin.
