I am on the larger side of 2X and bought the 2X in black because I initially forgot WW has a different sizing chart. Their stuff comes big. Usually you can't find plus size in a real plus size, and exercise shorts like these always come impossibly small. Not so with Women Within. Anything I get from them comes damn big!
If you want a tighter fit, definitely order a size smaller than what your size normally is.
A 1X would have been a tighter fit for me and good for gym use, but it turns out I actually like them loose like this so I don't mind. I decided to use them for comfy house shorts/pajama bottoms instead. They are thinner than the sweats I usually cut off to lounge in so they are actually cooler for our hot weather. Basically they are soft and thin like a t-shirt, but stretchy. They looked nicer in person. The picture on Amazon makes them look old and faded. However, after I washed them a few times, they did look a bit like the pic. I didn't even put them in the dryer. They shrunk a little and faded a little but they are still okay and quickly stretched out when I wore them again. I think they might age pretty much like an average t-shirt.
I love these for lounging about and have ordered several more in 2X for that purpose. Based on the material, I have a feeling they wouldn't hold up too well with repetitive cardio movement anyway.
I could have sent them back but I kept both pairs and figured that I'd could easily take one or both pair in a bit up the side or at the waist if need be. I washed them in warm water wondering if they'd shrink a bit but they didn't. I basically made a seam on either side and took them in. Not really a big deal. Incidentally they are nice and high at the waist. If there is anything I can't stand, it's short-waisted pants/shorts etc...
Actually what I like about these shorts is that I am using them for yardwork and stuff like that so any squatting and/or crouching will ensure that I have enough room so that they don't rip etc..I don't mind pulling them up a bit.
I actually like them so much that I signed up on the Woman Within's website and I ended up ordering a few things directly from them which ironically included 3 more pair of bikes shorts but in the medium size...
I'm glad that I was at least able to find this company because of Amazon otherwise I don't think I would have come across them...
I have them assorted colors.
They come up to the waist so they fit super comfy and have a generous bottom. I am 5'3" and they come to top of knee, rather long, wish they offered them in petite, but they are oh so comfy, I love them anyhow and deal with the knee length cause I don't have the patience to hem them up.
Woman Within overstates their sizing. If you want these to fit snug like bike pants should, then order 1 size smaller. If you like them loose then order the size they say will fit, cause it will be loose.
These bike shorts look perfect with long tunics, especially those tunics 32" and longer that cover belly,crotch and rear end.
The heather gray is my only regret, they look like gym shorts or underwear, not the look I desired.
That being said on chillier days I have worn these as underwear under jeans or skirts or dresses.
I accidentally bought a pair too big for me. When I shattered my wrist and had to learn how to get dressed with just one hand, I was able to wear the big ones and pull them up and down with just one hand. So if you are partially disabled, these might be a trendy godsend for you.
Here are some pictures of me wearing them with tunics. I also do wear them for bicycle riding.
Now the funny part is I get all my bike shorts from Woman Within but I get my coordinating tunics from Catherines because I prefer 100% cotton in my tunics or rayon but not polyester.
