Interesting Fit, But Good Shorts

The waistband it stiff so it is a little bit difficult to pull the shorts over my hips, but once they are around my waist they are loose. I use these shorts for weight lifting so this does not really bother me, but if I was running in them and using the pockets I think it would be annoying. Overall I like them for working out and I would get another pair.

Stiff waistband

I’ve been looking for reflective shorts, and these are pretty good. The waistband is not stretchy so getting them over the hips is challenging. A little saggy in the crotch, very thin fabric. If I’d paid full price, I would have sent these back— but they are worth the sale price.

Found my favorite!

I have too many running tights and shorts. I also have never bought the same style twice but I will with these! They are so comfortable, especially in the waistband - finally a waistband that is high but also is smooth and not too tight. And there are so many pockets, including a zippered pocket that fit my phone AND is functional - it keeps my phone in place while running! I barely remembered it was there. I also love the reflective birds (I'm always finding ways to be more visible while running at night). Love these shorts and I hope Oiselle continues to make these year after year!

LOVE these!

I had been looking for a pair of bike-style shorts for a while but had no luck with other brands (either too compressive, legs ride up, or dreaded camel toe!). These shorts check off all the boxes for comfort, style and functionality. Lots of pockets around the waist! And the waist sits just at the right spot for me. I am 5”4. Love the reflective birds - they really work. And I had no issues with the legs riding up when running. I will be buying more in other colors.
