Having chemical sensitivities makes me a tough customer, and I love these shorts. They’re soft and comfortable and make great underpants if you don’t like the feel skin tight panties with elastic bands that dig into your inner thigh. Obviously you couldn’t wear these under leggings or skinny jeans, but they work for me under skirts or generously cut pants. I can’t really rate the sizing, since I’d normally wear a small or extra small, but got a medium instead so I’d have a longer rise, and that’s working well for me. The elastic band is riding a little low, and the rise is generous.
