BANANA SPLIT SHORTS
Split. Leg. Shorts. You've been wanting them, we've been listening. Okay, some of you have been wanting them (badly), and well, you know us: we like to give the women what they want. These start with the Roga-style waistband - wide, flat, and pocketed. The front leg panel sweeps over the rear to give these splits more coverage than the ones that feel like they might set sail. Made from our Roga fabric, the 4-way stretch gives extra ease and movement.
- Roga Stretch Woven (polyester / spandex)
- Plya Interlock Waistband (polyester / spandex)
- built-in technical liner
- rear zip pocket
- 4" inseam (all sizes)
The Banana Split Shorts are BY FAR my favorite Oiselle running shorts - I've tried and liked other models (Rogas, Summer Rogas, Long Rogas, Pocket Shorts), but Banana Splits are top of the list! Would love to see more colors - I have the black and red and want the navy but they are out of stock. No rubbing, flattering fit, cool and airy without being overly exposed and best of all the pocket in back holds my iphone XS Max!! For reference, I'm 5'11, 133 and wear a 4 in these. They fit true to size vs. other Oiselle bottoms I have owned.
I was hesitant to buy these shorts as my thighs rub right at the apex. In the past, loose shorts like these always rode up and created an unfortunate look and my thighs would chafe. So I tend to get compression/tight shorts as they won't move. But I gave it shot because I did like how high the side splits were. After an 8 mile run in the 6am summer weather, I can say that I love these shorts!
For reference, I am 5'4" 130lb. I usually get a size 10 in the Pocket Jogger Shorts but for these I got a size 8 and they fit pretty good.
P.S. Oiselle can you add more colors?! <3
Ordered my first pair of Oiselle shorts - the banana split! Love the look and feel of these shorts, just wish they were a bit smaller. Typically I'm a size 6: 5'9, 140 lbs, slim/athletic build. Next pair will be a size 4. Great for short and long runs!
i LOVED these shorts when they first arrived. they are super flattering and comfortable. however, i’ve only had them for about 3 months and the material has already started pilling all over - front, back, sides. bummer they look cheap and worn out now. guess they’re meant for looks, not for action. at least the red color still pops.
for reference: i am 5’2, 116 lbs, thicker thighs, and ordered the 2.
I love these shorts! They are the ideal length and weight and the red color is stunning. I’m 5’5” 140 and the 4 for perfectly!
I love these shorts. They are the perfect fit and weight. They do run a little bigger than the Flyout shorts that I tried on. I am 5'7", 135 lbs and have an athletic build with a bigger bum and "muscular" thighs :). I do not have a small waist in relation to my hips, and the waistband on the size 4 was just right on these. I ended up buying the black and the blue.
I'm new to Oiselle and ordered a few styles of non-compression shorts and these are my favorite! I found these to be significantly more flattering than the Rogas on my build (5'4", 130 lbs, with hips, glutes, and thighs, 27 in jeans, size 4 in these shorts) and the split not only creates a sense of freedom, but a little bit of fun flirtiness too! I didn't experience any issues with them riding up on a 7 mile run. Please do *not* make them shorter at all! They are a perfect compromise between the Long Rogas (which I also enjoyed, but not quite as immensely) and the Rogas! If these were any shorter, they would not be nearly as flattering and would cause chafing. Glad I discovered them - will be ordering more!
Absolutely love them! The split sides make them so comfortable and flattering. I have already gotten complements on them! I just want some more colors and maybe a summer roga fabric version! I’m a size 6, and for me they fit true to size!
