To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I do quite a bit of walking (sometimes 5-10 miles in the mornings) and was experiencing all kinds of discomfort due to friction. I looked for a good solution and was very happy to find these. 😊 I haven't experienced any chafing problems since I started wearing them. I have a 39-in waist and these have a nice snug comfortable fit. I was so satisfied with them that I bought a few more. If you're someone who works out or does a lot of walking and are looking for a solution to prevent chafing discomfort, these are highly recommended.
I have a post-surgical hematoma and was advised to wear compression shorts to help reduce it. I ran out and bought a pair of Nike Pro shorts for $25 retail. When it became clear I would need more, I bought three of these for less than one Nike.
Unfortunately, the negative reviews are all true. The waistband rolls and bends uncomfortably in the middle. They run tighter than even I needed. And they are badly made. On one pair the plastic threads began coming out even before I could wash them! 2-stars because I can sort of wear them at home, but not out. And not long. Pay the extra money for decent shorts.
I use these compression shorts under board shorts when swimming. They are very good at keeping you from becoming chafed between your legs. I have that problem a lot when I'm wet for extended periods of time. When I'm on vacation I tend to spend a lot of time in the water and can become chafed. These compression shorts under the board shorts completely alleviate that issue. They are the perfect amount of thickness so they feel high quality but are still thin enough that they feel very comfy. The material is soft and can easily be worn for a long period. I will probably buy more pairs for the summer time.
