I have several mini shorts. My last purchase , the Beom Soo, is definitely a lounge version of this great style. The fabric is a soft, silky satin which is NOT stretchable as in the swimsuit version of the mini shorts. They do share the same full split sides with an inverted "V". In size 2XL, the sides are 3 1/2 inches long from top of waist band to the leg opening. The front is low rise. I like the skin exposure on the abdomen, legs, and rear. The feel of the Beom Soo is slightly different. The leg openings provide more freedom and do not fit snug as with the swimsuit mini shorts. The leg openings are cut high in the front and are loose providing a comfortable airy feel. Because of the mini short's brevity, there is some risk that the penis may "peek out" occasionally from under the fabric. I am very much OK with that when lounging privately at home. Elsewhere, I easily remedy that situation by wearing a mesh black thong underneath which keeps the penis closer to the body and centered behind the front fabric. Without this support, the penis may at times choose to reveal itself in one of the leg openings. I really enjoy the Beom Soo as loungewear and sleepwear. Mategear's mini shorts are terrific. Thank you.
