I always sleep in shorts and spend a lot of my time around the house in summer in sleep shorts. I've tried a lot of brands. I was hesitant to order from Mate purely from a cost perspective. I'm so glad I finally took the plunge, I just wish I had ordered a slightly smaller size. They will stretch a bit as you wear them. I'm 5'8", 170lbs and bought an XL, definitely could've gone with an L. They've been washed and air dried, still held their shape beautifully. I can tell I will have these shorts for a long time.
