I tried 2 sizes on, XXL and XL ,and settled for the smaller pair. However, the inner shorts in XL are very tight, whereas the outer is quite loose. The inner is fastened to the outer with press studs, which means the outer hangs a bit loose. The inner shorts do not equate to the same body shape, so that the waist is on the hips. This means that the outer shorts are down to my knees. Separated, the outer shorts can be drawn up, but then why use the inners provided? And what's the point of a zip with an inner short so tight?
