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!
- Need more colors please!

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!
