I wanted to love these but the overall sizing is way off for me. I feel like these shorts were made for tall ladies with a booty. I'm 5'3 112 and went for a 6. They are the perfect tightness in the waist - I think a 4 would have been way too snug - but they are so baggy in the butt and liner. I'll still wear them, I just have to roll the waistband over once and then it fits perfectly. Too many concerns about chafing with that to make them true "distance'' shorts for me but they'll work for short runs and strength training. Maybe I just need to do more squats and work on the booty and then they'll fit.
What I DO love about them: the material is awesome! The design on the sides is gorgeous! Besides the sizing, the cut is great. I love the wider leg holes - it allows for a nice range of movement and air flow. Pockets are always appreciated.
Based on the other reviews it looks like I'm in the minority for sizing. I would appreciate if you could give more sizing info. The "Athlete Info" is all for ladies in the 5'8'' range who appear on the leaner side.
Zero complaints while wearing these! Bought a pair awhile ago in a cute pink color and just purchased black and I am STOKED! They are so comfortable - running, hiking, lounging, painting your living room, kayaking, you name it, these shorts will be there for you
have two pairs, about to order another, my all time fav running short!!!!!
My first pair of Oiselle shorts and exceeded my expectations! Super comfortable and love that there is a pocket on the side. Material is light and breathable. Will be buying another pair in the color Lark! For reference I'm 5'0 and 115 lbs and the size 4 fit perfectly.
I am SUPER picky when it comes to running shorts but these are the bomb dot com. I haven't taken them off since they came in the mail and am debating ordering them in every color (send help). They do have pretty wide leg openings as some people have said but the liner is pretty conservative so I'm not worried about showing too much bum. The outer fabric is substantial yet light and soft, and the seams don't chafe, and the liner is the perfect cut with flat seams and soft/not see-through fabric. Pockets are roomy and well placed - I was worried the side one would feel awkward, but nope! For reference, I am 5'4" 130# with athletic thighs and the 4 was perfect.
I've run everything from 3-60 miles in these at let me tell you y'all, these are the best most comfortable shorts I've ever worn. I've been wearing them for 5 years now and I'll never run in anything else. Even the underwear liner is comfy! And They LAST forever. I've had a few pairs now for years. Cant say anything negative honestly!
I am very very impressed! Love the fit and the material-very comfy : ) I am 5'8" and 120 lbs. size 4 was perfect. Love the 2 zippered pockets. Will probably wear these on all my long runs for both road and trail. Hands down my most favorite shorts I have ever worn/owned. Nice job Oiselle!
I'm 5' 3" and 150 pounds and wear most of my weight in my hips, but and thighs. I ordered a size 10, which fits, but the rise is just low enough that the waistband wants to ride up my hips toward my more narrow waist from time to time. They don't do it quite as badly as many other running shorts do, though. The pacific color is gorgeous and the pockets are a major plus, so I'm hanging on to them, but more to wear around the house than to actually run in. I'd probably rate these 3.5 if I could.
