Don't be fooled by the photos!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 May 2021
Don't be fooled by the photos... and I don't mean that I didn't look like a model when I put them on.
Material is smooth and comfortable, if a little thin for this price, and I have no issues with the quality of the cut or stitching. However, given that these are sold as extra long leg, and the photos show them as significantly longer than others - including the product alone pictures - these are actually much shorter than they're made to look in the listing. Yes, they are still longer than regular shorts, but no, they do not get close to the knee, and the product alone image makes the crotch down look at least as long as the crotch up. In reality the waist is ridiculously high - I can cover my belly button without stretching them.
Overall they're ok, but I suspect they get worse the fatter you are. I bought them because not only am I well on the big size, but I have lympheodema in one thigh so was looking for the extra support. They work well enough (not that I can do a return on underwear), but I'll be looking for something else that does what it promises better than these do. For £6/pair I couldn've got my usual style from Tesco.
On the subject of size, I found them a little generous. Not too big, but I probably could've gone down a size and been ok. Not a problem but you might want to think about that if youre close to a size change point.
