I'm 5' 5" 175 lbs and I'm very particular with how my shorts fit given my height and weight. I recently went to a high priced ath-leisure name brand to give their shorts a try but they did not meet my fit standards. Then I came across TLF and so glad I decided to give them a try. Bought two pairs of shorts in medium and plan to buy more. Great fit and material. Haven't worked out in them yet but so far awesome for lounging.
