I was expecting these shorts to fit like the picture shows they fit, similiar to the way yoga shorts or bike shorts fit. These shorts are a not-breathable, polyester silky material, not short or contour fitted like shown in the picture, and they have a 2" in long bulky elastic waistband. The fit is nothing like the picture depicts. In fact, the style, cut, and material are almost identical to a pair of loose-fitting men's silk boxers I bought my husband for Valentine's day this year. They are sinched at the waist with a really large elastic srunchy band, then hang loose just like men's boxers do. If I had wanted a pair of men's boxer style shorts, I wouldn't have bought a pair of shorts advertised as tight fitted short women's yoga-style workout shorts. I will be returning these and looking for shorts that actually fit the way these shorts deceptively are shown to fit.
