Man was I excited when I got these. They felt like linen against my skin - no wool scratchiness. They made my butt look great, the elasticity was just right for how comfortable I want to be whilst moving as much as I do. I’d originally ordered Large but they were way too big so exchanged for a medium - out of the box the M was a perfect fit. I got a pair in black and in grey - have yet to wear the grey ones but the black ones I’ve been wearing a lot. I’ve washed the black ones in cold water, delicate cycle, air dry in the shade. A few washes and you can see how much shrinking has happened in the photo. I’d recommend sizing up. They’re a touch too small now, so a bit of a disappointment considering the price tag. I love Woolly gear and this is the first time I’ve had any issue with the quality. TLDR - size up, they shrink even if you follow the indicated care instructions.
