I’ve been eyeing these shorts for months in order to wear them for a concert. Since I’ve lost a good amount of weight this year I assumed the medium would be a good fit. My mistake was thinking they were a short of spandex material but actually it’s a very soft fabric so they are comfortable but be aware they are not high wasted as they seem. Because of the chains they do weight down but overall I absolutely love them! Just be aware of sizing because they were a big bigger on than they look.
