Featherweight Roga Shorts
Our lightest shorts for your hottest runs! These are Rogas for when it heats up - and you still need to get out. A brilliant 4-way stretch body is topped off with our Plya™ Compression waistband for a smooth fit, and of course, a large pocket is a must. The rear mesh pocket is easy to access, but also keeps phones secure with a strong bar tack and stretch binding.
I normally run in tights/tight shorts since I don't like the feel of fabric swishing about. These are probably the best swishy shorts I've had, and I've been running seriously for 24 years.
Reason for 4 stars: the sizing has changed considerably. When Oiselle first opened, I was a size 6 in shorts. I, sadly, haven't trimmed down as I've gotten older. In fact, I'm the same size I've been since 19. Based on other reviews that included height and weight, I decided to size down to a 4. Should have got a 2. The 4 is a little loose, so my phone bounces around in the back pocket since the waist band isn't tight to me. For reference for those who wonder about size, I am 38 years old. 5'3", 118 lbs, 32C/25/35. I have a square build, shoulders broader than hips. Thighs larger than hips. Flat (but broad) waist. Hope this helps
Roga shorts are the best and the short I keep coming back to! I was really impressed with the feather weight version-- they feel so light and free and I hardly notice they are there! The mesh back pocket is helpful as well. They are my favorite short for running, hiking, and just wearing around.
For reference, I am 5'4, 120 pounds and size 4 in the shorts.
The fit, cut, sizing is great. They are so sheer, you can see EVERYTHING. Big bummer, I was so excited for these shorts.
I now have 3 pairs of these shorts b/ I can wear them for all sorts of activities. Running, hiking, swimming, and dancing at the gym. Flattering cut for my curves (which can be hard to find)
