How tight should they be?
Sounds like you want a pair of lycra running shorts rather than compression shorts. A normal running pair just needs to feel like they fit and be comfortable. Compression shorts are another thing altogether. If you were sold compression shorts to avoid chafing then you were misold them. Compression shorts need to be tight to aid recovery. It will be as well that your are a bit loose if you just want a pair for running. You just probably paid over the odds for what you needed.
I think you guys are over using the question marks in this thread
