I love these shorts. I pretty much only buy 4 way stretch shorts because they work great for Yoga as well as for surfing. Usually 32" waist with stretch end up being a little too roomy in the waist after a while and I can surf in them (they would be at my ankles). These seem to fit true to size and they are not getting bigger like others i have had. Anyway, they are ridiculously comfy and look cool too.
