Fairtex Slim Cut Muay Thai Shorts Size Guide
For years, Fairtex has had the same classic cut for all their Muay Thai shorts. They came out with some exciting new designs but always in a traditional Muay Thai style. Over the past year, they’ve revamped their approach and released a brand new retro style. Better known as Fairtex Slim Cut Muay Thai Shorts, these fit completely different than the classic cut shorts. Read this complete size guide below for details on how they fit and their new designs!
Fairtex Slim Cut Muay Thai Shorts come in sizes small through extra-large. We’ll hop straight to the size chart:
|Size||Waist||Across the top||Out Seam||Leg Opening|
*Please note the out seam and leg opening measurements are taken from shorts lying flat.
When compared to the traditional style Muay Thai shorts that Fairtex put out, the new slim cut style has:
- A lower rise waist band
- Shorter out seam
- Smaller leg holes
- Less fabric across the front and back of the shorts
What does this all mean?
Well, a low rise waist means these shorts will likely sit below your belly button. By comparison, classic cut Fairtex shorts usually sits at or just above the belly button depending on your body type. This may be a non-issue if you prefer to roll your shorts down. But if you prefer to wear your shorts high, be forewarned this style will not allow it.
A shorter out seam means the legs of these shorts will not extend as far down your thigh as the classic cut. They hit mid to high thigh depending on how long your legs are.
Smaller leg holes refers to the opening at the bottom of the shorts. There are slits on the side of each leg so as not to restrict movement, but this leg style is more revealing and offers a tighter fit overall. Please keep in mind that the measurements provided for the leg opening in the chart above are measured with a pair of shorts lying flat. They are not the circumference of your thigh.. so, if your hams are huge, size up!
Less fabric overall means just that. The front and back of these shorts is not as baggy as the traditional cut Muay Thai shorts. The slim cut style fits snug fit in both directions. If you like extra space in the crotch or have big glutes, size up!
Of course a lot to do with getting the right size means taking into account your personal preference. Also, there is a wide variety in sizes across brands. But, if we are comparing Fairtex to Fairtex, the general recommendation we can give is to size up in the new style. So, if you were wearing a small in the Fairtex traditional cut, grab a medium in the Fairtex Slim Cut Muay Thai Shorts.
