buns for days
Okay, so I've wanted my own personal pair of buns since I ran for my university years ago and I was so excited to see Oiselle carrying them (in not just one, but TWO colors!). I'll be honest - I haven't actually worn them for a race yet - much less a run... but as soon as I tried them on, I knew I was in love. As the other reviewers mention, they hug in all the right places and have awesome coverage, without making you feel like you're actually wearing your bikini bottoms out for a run. I for one have bigger thighs on my 5'2", 103lb frame (I got a size small), so the 'hipster' style of these buns really make me feel comfortable with my body. I can't wait to test this baby out for my next half.
- form-fitting, great coverage, color/size options
I needed a pair of dark blue shorts for cross-country season, but I hate racing in actual shorts. Finding dark blue spankies is surprisingly difficult. These are perfect. They fit perfectly, don't ride up, and make me feel sleek and fast. I have run many PRs and course bests in these spankies.
- fit, feel, PR magic
- I don't have an infinite supply of them to hand out to my entire team
I bought these over a year ago, and it has taken me all that time to work up the courage to wear them. What on earth was my problem? These are fantastic. Perfect for hot, humid weather. Kept my butt covered. Never even noticed them during the run. Priceless!
I've been searching for the competition brief in an XS for a year. The older version seemed to have an XS but I can't find it stocked on ANY website. Oiselle, PLEASE re-stock XS! I'm 5'2" and 103#.....
For anyone considering bun huggers, these are fantastic! These are a perfect fit and I felt fully covered (and confident!) during a marathon. I've spent a lot of time and effort trying to find the perfect long distance running shorts and haven't had much luck due to body shape/sizing issues (either too tight in the leg/bum area or waistband is so large that they practically fall down on the first stride even with synched drawstring, spandex is also a tug of war for me). I was amazed at how much more comfortable these really are and I am completely sold. Thanks, Oiselle for making bun huggers for the age groupers and giving us the confidence to wear them.
I wasn't sure about bunhuggers, but when I saw these I knew I had to give them a shot. Just rocked them for an hour run and they are super comfortable. Feels like I'm running in underwear though so not sure if I will run around the city in them - as I'm far from an elite runner, I might just save them for the treadmill & race day.
Please make more size small!! I love, love, love this brief; there is such a huge difference in comfort and stride when running in these versus shorts!
I am not an elite runner (yet!) but these were perfect on this morning's long run. I have been dealing with SO much sweat from our humid climate but these made my run so much more enjoyable. I returned to buy another pair but unfortunately my size is out of stock right now.
These were perfect to wear during my recent race on the track! I loved the coverage, quality, and comfort. Awesome!
