2XL I'm 6'1, 330 lbs

First off, I wear basketball shorts over these. You're welcome.
I'm a 40-44" pant depending on the brand. These are snug leggings, but are very long on me. I could probably wear an XL. Might boost my voice an octave higher but whatever. I've never worn tight anything before so I didn't know what to expect here. I'd say I saw benefit in keeping my legs dry and cool but they weren't tight enough to offer any benefit to my muscles, at least in my opinion...which is based in zero experience. They are quite comfortable though, which I didn't expect.
I'm doing crossfit to get healthy and burpies are killing me. Trainer said compression socks might help with my calf muscle strain but I bought pants to help save the skin on my knees. I'm sure if I found a pair that was closer to my dimensions I might notice more pressure on my calves and thighs, but I wasn't about to spend the cash before trying it out. I'm happy with my purchase and will likely wear these for every workout. When I drop enough weight to need new gear, I'll invest into finding the right size and maybe try a more expensive brand. But I'll still buy a set of these as they seem to be a good value.
Note for the bigger guys/gals - don't be afraid of these. I really thought wearing these would feel strange, but once I put my shorts on over them it was fine. They stretch, like a lot. I can do squats and they don't move at all. Like I said I wear shorts over them. They are slightly see through when stretched. I'm a lightly tan white guy and I'd notice my skin showing just a little around my knee when doing squats. If you plan on just wearing these, wear dark underwear.
