Really like these bottoms, I love boy short style bottoms so this is right up that alley. I have a smaller torso and longer legs so I like the thicker waist bands for my body type. Material is soft but stretchy. What I really like is that its pretty much seamless, so theres no "pinching". I am 5'6" average weight, I know I could fit into a small but I prefer more comfort so went for the medium and it is perfectly snug but not loose! :) I also feel like this is well made to the point that if your weight fluctuates (slightly) you could fit into these at any point in life.
