When I tried them on, I found that I could go down a size but I prefer my tights to be smooth when on. I have a 38" waist at 212 lb 6"1'. When I wear the P.I. in an XL, I have wrinkles and am afraid the extra fabric will rub and irritate. The large size fit nice and tight, gave good compression and smooth lines.... plus I look thinner!!! Yeah, they are tough to get on but if you put them on like a woman does her stockings, I found it OK. I also put socks on before the tights to make things easier. Also, I think the tights got shorter as the size got smaller so that helped take the extra I had off the bottom. Being that I ended up not wanting that level of wind barrier and weight, I ended up with Elite Thermal and Elite Thermal Barrier tights. I got the Thermal Barrier in a Large and there was a sale on the regular Elite tights but they only had XL so I took them. Oddly enough, they were the same width so I am not sure if The Clymb sent me a mis-size or they only really get longer with size.
