Love the style and cut of pants. Was looking for fitted capri's with pockets for running. Fit is slightly loose as no spandex in the material, but the Lycra helps. The material does give off a bit of sheen and is thinner than I wanted, but overall still happy with what I got. I have similar pants from a different maker with spandex and it fits like compression pants. In those I like the large, but can wear the medium with no problems. These pants, I ordered the medium and may have been okay with even a small. Not so loose that it falls off, just prefer the compression feel. I'm a true medium and these are fine in the medium, although I find after a long set of jump roping, I will pull them up now and again.
