Size down

Sizing is off on these. I’m 5’4 130 lbs and ordered a small based on the size chart. They are so big. Size down for sure

Great fit

Have only done 1 long run in these so far, but so far so good!


I bought these from a recommendation of a friend that they won’t ride up while running. And she was right! Great waist band pocket too. I’ve never regretted an Oiselle purchase!

I bought one pair, now I own four - THESE ARE AMAZING!!

These shorts are my absolute favorite. I bought one pair and have slowly accrued multiple pair because I can't wait to wear them. I literally get so excited when these come out of the dryer because I get to wear them again! They don't ride up, offer a light weight fabric that's perfect for the summer heat, and have a generous pocket in the back for my phone (iPhone 12 Pro). I also love the added zip pocket in the back to store my house or car keys. PERFECT SHORTS. I can't wait to own more pairs and replace all of my shorts with these.
