waistband snug, legs large
I really wanted to love these. the fabric is great, I love pockets, but the fit just wasn't right for me. the wasteband is snug but comfortable, but the legs had way too much fabric proportionally and bunched up around the crotch. if I'd sized down, I think the waistband would've been too small. great for those they fit!
- pockets, comfy fabric
- too much fabric
I hiked about 250 miles in these shorts and they were incredible. No chafing, no riding up, no threads-everywhere, even, miraculously, no stink! Honestly incredible. Especially on that last point. I threw away everything else I wore on that trip except these shorts. These I will wear till the day I die. THANK YOU OISELLE!

not a fan of waistband
I ordered a size up and the fit is generous around my legs, but I find the waistband has too much elastic and gathers. Yes, it is wide and flat, but all that elastic makes it feel too tight. It will work, I guess, but I'm not really a fan.
- so much elastic on waist
Great fabric and length is perfect. I'm 5'4, 127lbs and ordered up a size bigger than normal to a size 6. Perfect for being casual but sporty, and excited about my first Oiselle purchase!
- Fabric, color, length
- Runs small
these run small
I'm between sizes and wished I'd ordered up.
A bit snug
Love these shorts, but they do run a bit small. I'm on the cusp between sizes, and I wish I had ordered up.
Otherwise, they're great!
- Fabric, style
- Fit -- too tight
Love these shorts!
Great shorts! Just wore them today for a marathon and I loved them. Pocket is awesome! Fit 3 gels, no problem and super easy to get to them! My new go to shorts! Need more colors!
- Fit, pocket!

Run to weekend shorts
Love these shorts. I have the '16 version and while I didn't find myself reaching for them for runs they were my go-to weekend shorts for volleyball in the park, beach cover-up, house shopping. . .basically everything! I sized down as I'm usu between a 2 and a 4 in Oiselle shorts and they fit perfectly with one roll in the waist. (I'm a shorty.)
- Fabric, pockets.
- A little long for my taste, but I'm a mac girl!

Shrinks significantly after washing
I LOVE these shorts. Such a great cut and fit I bought two pairs right off the bat. BUT I thought it'd be super helpful for other folks if I flagged that these shrunk by almost a full size in the wash (and I wash with cold water). I'm now reordering them in a size up so I can actually fit in them again.
- love the cut, style and side pocket!
- shrink considerably after first washing
I love these! I got the denim and the color is so cool, the fabric is thick, but in a good way, and the little zipper pocket is perfect for ID and a key. I am 5'2", 125, and the size 4 is just right. I want these in every color.

LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!
Oiselle, seriously?! These are amazing. I have not seen anything like these on the market. All of my friends saw me wearing them at practice and wanted to buy a pair as well.
They're definitely unique and a must try pair of shorts. Thank you for making such quality products, you guys are the best!
