These capris are not standard fit/looseness. They're compression fit: they're noticeably tighter on your legs than average capris. But to me, that's not uncomfortable at all. In fact, it's exactly what I needed: a nice, supportive hug around my thighs and calves (I'm 5' tall, so these fit more like longer capris on my legs and cover a few more inches of my calves) while I work out. My legs love the way these feel.
If you don't want a tight fit, order one size up and they'll fit more like average capris.
My only con is the rise height. Since I'm short, I can pull these clear up to my navel. But I knew that'd be a problem when I bought these (ah, the plight of the short person). I just make sure to pull them only up to about an inch below my belly button, and they usually stay put.
The waistband isn't super tight, despite these being compression capris. It's actually kinda comfy, as long as it's not right up on my navel. The mesh panels at bottom of each leg don't hit me quite where they hit the model in the photo, because I'm short. But they're still very useful.
I wear these for any exercise that involves lots of leg movement, particularly HIIT. If the rise was lower, they'd be perfect for me. As they are, they're very good.
