These might be my favorite Oiselle shorts ever. I love Rogas. But I wanted something more form fitting and with some more pockets. I love the pockets on these shorts! I can fit my iPhone in them with no problem! And there is also room to put my key and snack in them. They do ride up a tiny bit, but I just don't care. I've never had the courage to run in tighter and shorter shorts in my life until I bought these! I feel fast and confident when I wear them. I love the length, they are short but not too short.

They ride up
They ride or roll up. A lot! Not just a little. The feelm of the fabric and the design is nice, but that is about it. The pockets with zippers don't fit a whole lot.
- Fabric and look
- They roll up!
So much YES
I bought these at a running shop the day before a marathon and didn't know the pockets were so big and unique til I got them home. I took a risk and wore them on race day and they did disappoint. No riding, chafing or drooping- and it did not feel like I was carrying a ton of stuff. I wear a size 4 in other bottoms and here as well
- Fit and function
HOLY CRAP YES
These shorts are THE BOMB. I went out on a limb purchasing them, because I don't normally go with this short of an inseam, but goodness these are SO FLATTERING, and comfortable as well. These are definitely going to be my summer running go-to shorts. I have muscular thighs, and I wasn't sure these would look great but they look AMAZING. I want ALL THE COLOURS. I wear a loose size 8 in Rogas (but could probably wear a 6) and ordered the 6 in these - they fit perfectly.
- So flattering, short but not too short
Wanted to love these...
I wanted to love these so much. The style is cute, fabric is great, but they rode up SO MUCH. It was very uncomfortable and I felt like I had to keep pulling them down every second of my run. Really disappointed.
Best Marathon Shorts Ever.
With a little trepidation, I swapped out my normal LLLLR / marathon shorts of choice (toolbelt roga, natch) for the portman short last weekend. They were PERFECT. The huge pocket in front and back means you don't have ALL the junk in the trunk and your shorts don't fall down until you've eaten all that gu. Plus, super flattering. Win. Win. Win. (And PR.)

They rode up on me...
I like these shorts but man, are they supposed to ride up so much?? I felt like I was wearing bundies! Perhaps I have the wrong size? I wear a 4 in the jogging knickers but when I tried on the 4 in these they were too tight so I got the 6. Love to hear some other ladies experiences!
- Flattering style until you start running in them
- They ride up
Very Flattering Fabric
Love the portman shorts! I usually wear the stride shorts mini (size 4) --these are great for running outside and hitting the track! The portman shorts (4) are a little more covering and better for the gym---less revealing, but still shows off the legs. I like the higher rise band becasue its super soft and comfortable--doesn't cut into your stomach either.
I think these would be great for yoga too. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
- Comfortable fabbirc! Makes your butt look GREAT
these were a little too short. seemed longer in the picture, but the 3" kind of rode up a bit, at least on me, and although they fit nicely, i would have liked if they were an teensy bit longer.
