I bought the small shorts, I have a 31 inch waist. Too small, the button fly takes quite a while to fasten and unfasten. Sent them back and got a refund. Liked the style so much I decided to order the mediums. The Velcro on the sides only attached with about an eight of an inch of contact. The tabs pulled off with minimal movement. Probably would be ok if they weren't so cheap that they couldn't add an inch of Velcro. Do not buy, you will probably be disappointed. They need Evelyn back. Bird well walking shorts suck. They should stick to board shorts.
