When I tried these on in the store they seemed to fit. However, when I wore them to my bootcamp they kept falling down. I'm a 2X in pants but it seems like this particular one was made for women with a much bigger stomach. I have to pull them up way past my belly button otherwise they hang low in the groin area. But then as I work out they start to slide down. Maybe it's because I don't have a huge stomach. I'm bigger in the hips which is why I had to get that size. Not too happy with them, don't think I will be able to wear them for very long as I loose weight.
