These are great but check out this size chart from the actual box. Many people are getting a size too large!

For the people who say these do not have good compression you probably have the wrong size. Using the advice I read here and what I found on the 2XU website I initially ordered a medium and that is what most of my bike shorts are. When it arrived it fit but was a little loose and the legs were too long for me. I just knew it was wrong and didn't feel right. The fit chart on the box told a different story and indicated I actually need a small size. I promptly re-ordered a small and it fit great. The legs were also more than an inch shorter which was much more comfortable. The support was very good and I ran a rugged maniac 5k in them the next day. The drawstring is so much better than an elastic only waist and I had no problem keeping them up for the entire time. I liked them so much I returned the medium size for another small. These are compression shorts and you will be better off with a smaller size rather than too large. They are very stretchy and you want them to be tight to do what they are designed for. If you want slightly looser yoga pants go ahead and order the wrong size.
