The multiverse leopard print shorts are stiffer and slightly more snug than another pair of multiverse shorts I bought previously (I’m 5’2, 113-115#, 24-25” waist). My husband and I love Virus products; however, when I asked to exchange the product for the next size up, I was told Virus no longer offered exchanges. I was directed to return the pair and purchase the larger size in a separate transaction. When I asked if I was going to be charged shipping for the new size since I was not allowed to exchange the items, Virus advised I would have to pay shipping if my new order total for one pair of shorts wasn’t going to qualify for free shipping. We’re not sure when this policy changed as we have bought products before and throughout this pandemic to support the company. I’ve also done exchanges previously without any pushback or issues. But rather than wasting money, I sucked it up and cut off the tag so I could work out/test the shorts. Hoping they will eventually loosen or break in, but the fit is not quite like their other multiverse or high-waisted compression shorts. Order a size up.
