These are my go-to capris if I need to run, then run errands. They look lovely and the compression feels great. I have both navy and black. I have 2 minor issues, but still give these a 5: 1. I wish the pocket/waistband was big enough for a phone, and 2. The mesh behind the knee never bothers me during a long run, but I gardened in these and after hours of kneeling my behind-the-knee area hurt from the mesh.
- Compression, style
Better than the original!
These have a higher rise than the original Lesley, which is an improvement for me. They stay put and I don't have to worry about them inching down as I run. The stitching and design is very flattering. They have a nice, compressive fit and they don't show sweat. I wore a large in the original, and ordered an 8. They seem to fit about the same.
- higher rise, flattering design
- more than 2 year(s)
These Lesley Knickers are a perfect fit. They are not binding, they do not fall as you run or any exercise activity. They wash very well and do not pill up or snag. I would highly recommend to all. Oiselle has never disappointed me yet. Big thank you!!
- Great fit and stays put while doing exercising/running
The next best thing
These tights are spot-on. True to size, a fair amount of compression, comfortable and snazzy. I plan to purchase in more colors. A must have for fall running!
- New York NY
These are by far the best Oiselle product I've purchased so far. These stay put, regulate temperature and make my butt look good.
After reading some of the reviews I was nervous that the Charcola color would show sweat, but Oiselle must have changed the fabric with the 2015 release because I sweat a lot and this is not a problem.
- Drawstring, compression, color, mesh panels!
- I wish the pocket was a little bigger. You kind of have to jam cards in there. Minor thing.
Love the style
I have a pair of last year's Lesley and love them, thought I would try a new color. I like that there is more compression, and while I love the color I got (charcola) I am a heavy sweat-er so after a while I look like I peed myself. Now, while my mom says no one should be looking at me there, I feel a little self conscious. I may save these for evening runs, or runs in the rain, and get a black pair. Love the styling and compression!
I got these to wear for an upcoming marathon in April and I have taken them for a few long and short runs and I couldn't be more happy. They are super comfortable, and flattering. I bought a size 10, I wear a large in the old sizes ( I'm 5'4, 150lbs). Thank you for making fashionable, and comfortable clothes for runners my size.
so so different from described
So I bought the black ones, in part because I liked the black/grey contrast. I don't really understand a brushed knicker, but thought I'd go for it anyway. When they arrived, I found that the black is *not* brushed and the mesh is not a contrast grey. I prefer them as they are — just a thick compressive knit — but I did like the contrast. Anyway, not what was described.
Fits true to size, comfortable, cute, & material stays in place the entire run... Highly recommend
