Disappointed in new fit

Roga shorts have been my go-to for many years now and after purchasing a couple of new pairs this summer to replace my shorts that have seen better days, I am really disappointed with the new fit. Not only do the shorts not leave a little give around my legs, but the rise is much shorter which leads to some not-so glamourous cameltoe. Please change the fit back! I loved these shorts.

More of an athleisure short

This is my fourth pair of Roga Shorts. I received my first pair around 2014 when I worked at a specialty running store, and I loved running in them back then. I used to love selling Rogas because they seemed to work well for just about everyone. Over the years, it seems like the Roga Shorts have evolved from a true running short into more of an athleisure short.

The pair I just ordered (black with white polka dots) is lightweight and breathable, but they are cut too slim to feel comfortable while running, especially if you are doing something fast like a track workout. This slimmer cut might be more flattering, but it is also less functional.

While I won't use these shorts for running, they are great for walking, travel, the gym, exploring the outdoors, etc.

I ordered according to the size chart, and it was accurate.

Roga where have you been all my life??

I have always had a very hard time finding athletic shorts that fit right, don’t ride up, and that I feel comfortable moving in. Now that I’m 52 and have birthed 3 children, that situation has not improved. I’m fit, but my hips and thighs are not small. I discovered Roga, believe it or not, from a Tik Tok video made by a woman with similar struggles. I gave them a shot and I am so happy I did!. I can run, and play tennis or pickleball in them. I even feel comfortable wearing them to the store. The 4” length is just right. They aren’t too flimsy. They aren’t snug in all the wrong places. I love the fun colors and prints. I bought my first pair about 2 months ago- and I’ve since purchased 3 more pairs. Thank you for making shorts for women like me!
PS- If it helps anyone- I am 5”4’, 135 lbs and wear size 8

This season's Rogas fit smaller

I've liked previous seasons, but the rogas I purchased this season (pinstripe and bold blue) fit much tighter in the leg than my other ones. Still love the fabric, but wish they fit like before.
