I bought these for my 8 year old son, to wear to martial arts classes and elsewhere. The only place they "compress" is his waist! The legs and seat and hip area are all very loose. My son is long and lean, so it's not a weight issue. I probably wouldn't order these again, but maybe these were just made wrong....?

I've owned the gamut of compression shorts, these compare favorably. At a $16 price-point you'd not expect much (in a marketplace flooded with $50+ options) but these *do* deliver good construction, good fit and moderate compression. Cup pocket is in the "right place," and the inner material allows the cup to surround, rather than "hover" over the protectees (a problem with other supporter products.) The included cup is a nice freebie; however its plastic-reinforced Styrofoam construction isn't expected to last long, and should be considered a throwaway / consumable item. FWIW, most adults will want for a little more room anyway ;-)
