Castelli Progetto Short sizing(2 posts)

I have a 32-33 waist and Castelli sizing recommends (according to colorado cyclist) size large. Does anyone using these shorts have any experience with the fabric becoming loose or stretching over time. I purchased a pair locally and the large fits OK but I would hate to find they stretch out and become too loose in a month of use. The size medium were definitely too small. I am basically comtemplating keeping these or returning them as I normally would wear PI or Garneau in size medium. The Castelli fabric is extremely comfortable and that is my reason for the purchase. Any Castelli user advise or experience would be appreciated.

I've had the Progetto Y2VT bib shorts and have experienced no stretch in the fabric over time. I've only been using them since March, but they are far and away my favorite pair of shorts. I also have a pair of Assos Campionissimo Evo bib shorts, and was surprised to find that I much prefer the Castelli's -pad, fit, and even quality. Not that the Assos are bad shorts, but the Castelli's are IMHO the best out there.
