Muay Thai Shorts
 
So I just bought a pair off of TitleMMA.com & I have a question: Just how short are they supposed to be? I know that they're short so you can get a good range of motion, & I've got no problem of that, but I have no way of guessing at what size I should buy. I picked large, but am a little unsure since they don't even cover my UnderArmor compression shorts. Other than this, they fit well & are comfortable.

If this normal & to be expected, then awesome. Otherwise I gotta try & get 'em exchanged I guess.

The should be relatively short. range of motion is the important thing. look up some pics of thai fighter and see if they look similar in proportion.

Yeah, I have, but it's just a little tough to tell. I mean, the UA shorts don't stick out too far (just enough to see the logo on the bottom), so I don't think it's too big a deal. I'm just always wary about buying clothes online based on what a random vendor decides is S/M/L/etc., ya know?

If your junk hangs out, they're too short.

Seriously though, as long as they have a long slit up the side, they can be fairly long without restricting your range of motion. My MMA shorts come down atleast halfway to my knees but the cut up the side of the shorts keep them from binding when I throw kicks.

I use MMA shorts for muay thai. I bought some everlast and they have the slit up the side. I love em. I'll have to try a pair of yours sometime. Crisco really liked em.
