Long Roga Shorts
The BFF to many a long-shorts lover, Long Rogas have been a favorite in the line for years. And as with all Roga, these bring together an ideal mix of easy function and 4-way stretch fabric. The front zip pocket is joined by an extra large, center back waistband pocket, which is even better for keeping items flat against the body. In addition to the Plya™ Compression waistband, all Roga styles come in the Roga Stretch Woven body fabric that has superior drape, durability, and a soft hand feel that just gets better with time.
I have owned several pairs of these shorts
These last 2 pairs I purchased ARE NOT of the same quality as previous shorts. The fabric is light weight, does not wash well, all creased out of machine! And the creases make the shorts look like they were slept in. My older shorts, same style, look much better than the new shorts, even though they may be 4 years old. Why did they change the fabric?? So disappointed!
Long Rogas have been my go to for several years. And that’s saying a lot being in “extended sizes” category. The last two pairs of Long Rogas I have ordered have a wait and that is entirely different and is not for the better. While there is still a drawstring, the elastic band is missing, so there is no structure to the waistband. It’s just a draw cord that floats around in the fabric, making the waist band move all around and gets bunched up on the drawcord. I went ahead and wore them for a marathon, that was a mistake, the shorts kept falling down and the waist band was all over the place, very annoying. Is this now the norm for long rogas? If so, I will not be ordering more. Extend sizes selection is already so limited compared to “normal” sizes, get with the program Oiselle, offer more selection for extended sizes and don’t limit our choices.
I love all of my previously purchased Oiselle Roga shorts! They are the BEST running shorts I have. All 5 pair are size 10 and fit perfectly. I was happy to see a limited-time weekend sale for 50% off a few weeks ago, so I ordered FOUR more pairs of the exact long Roga shorts again in the same size that I already own (purchased one year ago). I received the 4 new pair last week and wore one pair. They fit drastically different even though they are the same model of long Roga shorts that I already have in the same size. They are too small this time. They are cut differently. Unfortunately I took the tags off of that one pair, so I understand that I can’t exchange them for a bigger size 12. I figured I’d exchange the other 3 unworn pairs for a size 12 since these new size 10s don’t fit. When I went to the exchange page on the website, it states that they are not eligible for a return or exchange! I don’t understand. I’m not outside of the 30 day window and they weren’t “Final Sale” items. I am now stuck with several pairs of shorts that don’t fit. I don’t want my money back, I just want to exchange them for a bigger size since their sizing suddenly became inconsistent. If I can’t count on using my same exact Oiselle shorts that I already own as my size guide, then how would I know that buying the same shorts again would require ordering a different size? I’m really disappointed in the amount of money I spent on shorts that I’m not allowed to exchange for a different size. The shorts are worth the money if they fit. They are Very expensive shorts and a waste of good money if you can’t wear them. I am very reluctant to order from Oiselle again if this is how they operate.
Hi L.A.S., thanks for taking the time to share this feedback with us! Our customer care team will reach out to follow up with you directly.
These are my favorite shorts. I'm 5'8" and about 150bls. I have generous thighs and butt and thin waist. These fit me perfectly and they dont ride up or move. They have great pockets for keys or food or phone. Love these. I have 3 pairs.
