The Story Behind the Style

Sarah Mac


Non-poofy shorts! It's this simple quest that was the genesis of Oiselle. Bottom line, we wanted shorts (and styles of all kinds!) that matched our love of the sport. Thus the Roga, the Distance Short, the Stride... all with the goal of making you feel and look amazing.

In this "your butt will thank you" tradition, we're thrilled to introduce our newest creation: The Game Day Short. Brand new for Spring, it offers slightly more coverage than the Roga, plus has the same booty flattering stitch lines as the Lesley Knicker. The Game Day is an ideal mid-length short - ready to rock any run. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. As always, we want to hear what you think, so don't be shy, shout it out! 

The inseam is the same as the Roga, the legs offer a bit more coverage as the hem hits slightly lower on the thigh.

The same rear detailing as the Lesley Knicker, with flattering flatlock seams. A pop of color on the rear zipper gives it a modern look.

Our stretch woven (same as Roga Short) offers more awesome stretchiness than any short on the market  - for comfort, movement and a flattering fit.

Question: Roga vs. Game Day

I noticed that the Game Day description outlines 'more coverage' than the Roga, though both have a 4" inseam. I was wondering if the difference is in the profile/geometry of the hem: does the Game Day not dip up so much at the side of the leg? I can't quite tell from the photos.

Game Day

Hi Dottie! The Game Day shorts have a bit wider leg coverage, and there's a back curved yoke that helps create more fullness as well. The side of the leg is similar to the Roga. Thanks for your interest! Let me know if you have more questions!

Dottie, I just wore the game day short for the first time, and it most definitely feels like more coverage than the roga. I'm tall and wide hipped, and it was fabulous on me! Even though the inseam is the same, it somehow feels longer. You should try it!
