For some people 1 size up is good, but others might need 2 sizes up. Reason? The leg band is not as stretchy as the waist.
While most people know their waist size, it's important to measure the thigh size too. Take out your tape, sit down, and measure the leg band at 6 inches above the top of the knee cap.
See my modified sizing chart based on my experience with the 2 sizes I bought L and XL. The lower limit is what will fit snugly without flapping while cycling, and the higher limit is after being streched but not feeling uncomfortably tight.
I am 5'9, 168 lbs, size medium. After reading the reviews, I bought size L and they fit very well. I use these to train for triathlons and duathlons, usually around 24 miles. They are very comfortable, dry quickly, don't crawl up in your legs, the quality of the fabric and seams are comparable to the top brands (I have a Pearl Izumi Select and I like these better).

I really like these shorts. For what I paid they are good quality and the padding works. I would expect to see more out of this company in the near future. I recently bought a pair of $85 bike shorts and they are similar to these Santic's. The expensive ones are built out of thicker material and don't stretch as easily. Also there is more padding in the right places. You can see in the pics the padding is thicker on the expensive shorts at the bottom hip bone area. The expensive shorts are on the left and the Santics on the right. However the Santics are OK for medium rides and the padding is adequate. I am not a long distance rider anyway..........just a recreational rider mostly so these shorts are awesome for 10 or 20 mile rides. I like how they fit but you need to go up one or 2 sizes. I am 5'10" and 175 lbs. Based on other reviews here I ordered the XL and they fit great. Overall I would say to give these pants a try. They are comfortable, stylish and the...
