I got the 30", waist is perfect, fabric and quality are excellent.It is the fit.It's like they go concave in my crotchal region resulting in a lump with the fabric stretched over the top, in an asterisk looking fashion. It's like a crotch sunburst.I'm pretty slim, but I do ride bicycles a lot. Maybe my legs too are thick for a 30"? I don't know.I've worn Oakley bathing suits for the past decade, for reference.
Simply they vary in size. I ordered 2 pairs of 34 after losing a lot of weight and having owned a pair of the original (more stretchy fabric) shorts and these run larger than the marked size. I had to return/refund in order to get the smaller size 32 and again one pair fit great while the other was maybe a size 30 marked 32? So again with the barbaric return process from Amazon, I will try again. Good luck out there since there not true to size you need to go down a size or 2?
The phantoms have been my goto board shorts since I was in high school. Their stretchability and fit has always been a plus. These new ones I’ve purchased have the same nice ultrathin comfortable material as they used to, but are tailored in such an awkward way. It hugs my crotch and bunches at the thighs. Unless you are 40 lbs underweight, (I am 6 ft tall at 170 lbs) and have extraordinarily skinny thighs and no genitals, these might be a little uncomfortable in the lower regions of your body.
