I really hesitated on these because of all the conflicting reviews on sizing. Since the price was very good, I ordered 2 sets: one in XL & one in Large.
My measurements are an exact match to the sizing chart's XL. I weigh 149, and am 5' tall.
The XL fit like a walking short - very loose and with about an inch or 2 to spare in the thigh area - meaning they do not fit close to the thigh. These will be good for sleeping, general outdoor walks and house wear.
The Large fit a little more like the picture - close to the body - snug - but not uncomfortable. These will be good for my exercise classes - dance type and strength training.
If I had ordered a Medium, it would have probably fit like a compression short - which I did not want.
The fabric content is 90% cotton, 10% spandex. There is a tiny triangle of white polyester fabric sewn into the inside crotch area - noted as 100% polyester.
The fabric is a nice weight and provides adequate modesty.
I would hesitate to use these for swimming, since the majority of the fabric is cotton and it is likely to be very slow to dry. It will probably take a hard hit from chlorinated water, as well.
The length on me is about like the picture - but I'm short.
Overall, I'd definitely recommend these. Select your size depending on how you intend to wear. Definitely order down 1 size if you want them to be a snug fit (not tight or uncomfortable - but as pictured.)
Very good value - and am quite happy that I bought these in both sizes.
