I actually order the size one down because I like a tight fit in my underwear. Even this did not get the snug fit that I like. I do like the product, but would suggest ordering even smaller size, unless you like the loose fit.
Bought a Large size as I wear a 36/38 jean, and these are entirely too big. I put these on and they go up to my belly button and constantly bunch up because there is too much fabric! Now I know to get a size smaller if I every buy these again. However they feel great and I love the waistband, just very disappointed that the fit is not right.
My husband prefers these Hanes and has worn them for years because they're comfortable and wear well. He doesn't like the thicker waistbands in some other brands. But these are definitley a notch down in quality from the last time we bought some. I think they tried to keep the price down and skimped on the materials. May look for another brand next time.
I'll start off by saying that I'm a young athletic male. I am 6' tall and have built thighs but still maintain a small waist so I buy medium sized underwear. Most underwear has a flexible band for the waist AND the leg hoops. These ABSOLUTELY DO NOT! The waist band is comfortable sure, and it maintains itself in the wash, but the leg hoops are awful. The seam around the leg hoop is built so tightly and strongly that it does not expand at all, I can't even break it to make it more comfortable for my leg. Every time I sit down the leg hoops creep up my thighs and feel like they are cutting into my skin. I would not recommend this product at all. I would definitely not buy again which is a pity, because I like the fact that the underwear is a relatively thin fabric and doesn't show up in my jeans.
