Generally, size M fits perfect for me. In this case its very tight., realised that M size is 30 and L-32 in Decathlon!!
What should I do now.
quality quite ok
but size is not correct as mentioned

Not enough padding on the short
Sorry to hear you are unsatisfied with the amount of padding in these shorts. As these are designed to be used by someone who does leisure cycling and doesn't cycle for more than an hour at a time they won't have a great deal of padding in them. For anything over this rough time scale you'd be better with the 500 series which has a thicker and denser padding providing more comfort over a longer period.
If you are unhappy with the product you can return them to your local store for an exchange or refund with your proof of purchase.

I bought these shorts to use for commuting to and from work. They are very comfortable and do exactly what I was looking for. There's not much padding so I wouldn't use them myself for longer rides but perfect for my requirements.
Bought my second pair of these basic cycle shorts which represent good value for money. Its a case of they "do what it says on the tin". No frills but reasonably well made and of good fabric. Padded where they need to be.
Perfect for the occasional ride.
Ok for casual riding
gives you lumps in the right places
There was a rip in the seam (before husband even tried them on). The size guide is also incorrect. I had the same issue as Ian. There must be two size guides on the site - small is definitely not big enough for a 30inch waist. Husband has some other small men BTWIN cycling shorts from decathlon and they are much bigger and fit fine - what happened here?
Style is good
I'm sorry that your experience with the shorts has not been positive.
I agree with you that the sizing is not clear enough. More effort needs to be made on our behalf to improve this point.
Generally speaking a 30" waist at Decathlon is M, 32" is "L", 34 is "XL" etc....
Please return them to us for a refund/replacement as the seam coming apart means they are defective.

Had to exchange my original. The customer service over the phone and clear instructions, quick delivery is on par, very good.
The shorts itself has evolved from stringy plastic quad stranglers to hugging comfortable material at the end of the short (as you can see in the pictures). Having big quads, I've finally found a piece of cycling kit that is perfect fitting. When I compliment, you've done your job well! Thank you decathlon.
Comfortable, cheap, good customer service
Would be handy to have elastic on legs
Wash well, comfortable and lightweight
Lack of elastication on legs, don't fit snugly
