While this item wasn't a good fit for my husband, I will be a lifetime customer of this company due to the beyond amazing customer service. It's extremely rare to find such kind and helpful service as this company has. When you find a company like that, you know you've struck gold!
As far as these boxers go, if you prefer a looser brief fit, these would be a good choice, but if you prefer a more true "hold it all in" snug but not tight fit, these are a little loose through the hips and rear. Sizing down would result in the waist being too snug so we had to return them in order to purchase from the company that has a better fit for us.
