LONG POCKET JOGGER SHORTS
What's got more game than Pocket Jogger Shorts? That must be the Long Pocket Jogger Shorts. These babies have all the same bells and whistles as the Pocket Jogger Shorts (yes, five pockets! Yes, our beloved Nyelle™ fabric) but in a longer length. It's all about maximum mobility and comfort and giving women what really, truly makes them happy: style and convenience without discomfort and bulk.

Let me preface this by saying that I don’t love the high waisted leggings/shorts trend because they don’t tend to work on my body. I’m 5’10 and 155 lbs in a postpartum body. The regular length compression shorts are too short. The long are too long. Please give me a 6” inseam. I would love a mid rise but I know that’s too much to ask these days! I also would like a thinner fabric which I realize is a bizarre request. I think I was just overwhelmed with the amount of fabric - so high and so long. Way too much fabric for me during summer runs. Maybe I’d change my mind if it was cooler out. That being said, they looked great. I ordered my normal size 6 (in other brands) and think a 4 would fit better. I can see why people love these, but I have to pass.
As many others have said, the sizing is strange. I listened to the other reviewers and ordered 1 size larger. Glad I did - the waist is a little tighter than I would like. Annoyingly, the legs are looser than I would like. These shorts are also extremely high waisted. The photos in the description aren't quite accurate. The shorts rise farther than my belly button, tucked right under my rib cage. There's about a hand's width of space between my shorts and sports bra. This type of fit is annoying to me on long runs. I wish they didn't rise so high. The fabric is nice and breathable. The back zip pocket fits an iPhone 7 very nicely. The side pockets are stretchier because again, the legs are looser than the waist. Fine for storing snacks and light items.
Fun experiment, but I will not be ordering more of this particular style. These will be good shorts for my medium length runs, 6-10 miles.
I have a very difficult time with chaffing so I wanted to find some shorts that I could actually wear and stay cooler in hot temperatures. These are the best of both worlds! It's definitely time for me to order another pair. The pockets are perfect too.
I really thought these were going to be my holy grail shorts, but the fit is just not quite right. A lot of high-waisted bottoms fit me like mid rise, so I was so excited to find a pair of shorts that is actually high waisted. Also, shorter shorts often ride up on my legs so I love the longer length and of course the pockets! Unfortunately, the waistband on these is so tight that it gets uncomfortable and I feel like I'm suffocating, especially on longer runs in the summer heat. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the legs fit so loosely they actually do start to creep up my thighs. I don't think the too-tight waistband is a sizing issue, especially since the thighs are fairly loose. This is also not at all the norm for me, I usually have the opposite problem with bottoms being too loose and sliding down in the waist while being too tight in the hips/thighs. They're still useable, but they've been reserved for only shorter workouts.
I've bought a pair of these for the last 3 years and this year I opted for 2 pairs, black and green. Usually wear size 10 in most clothes but a size 8 fits great without being too compressed (5ft6in, 165lbs)! Wanted another black pair but it looks like I have to wait for next year. Please keep making these in fun colors too. Great for walks around the neighborhood, gym, short bike rides, hiking, and running!
LOVE these shorts. They are so comfortable, so many pockets, great length, great feel. They have a cotton-y feel, not a spandex/nylon feel. Thick, good construction all around, but especially at the waist. I feel like I'm going to live in these. As many reviewers have said, these are tight in the waist. I got the size 8 -- I'm usually anywhere from a size 4-8 in various clothes, but my issue is big thighs/butt, small waist, so this pair was perfect. (I'm 5'6", ~140, 27" waist, 34" high hip, 39" thighs for reference) If your body sounds like mine you will love these!
I was really hoping these would loosen up after a couple of washes, as a 12 in other Oiselle fits me perfectly. I love the feeling of compression because I am used to cycling gear, so I didn't want to size up. I have a 33" waist and 31" thighs. They fit great through the thigh so I can see why they might ride up on other folks. The waist is so small and uncomfortable, many times I need to cinch in the waist on other shorts so I was shocked at how tight it is. It was such an expensive bummer for a pair of shorts I really expected to love. Otherwise the design and material feel fantastic, but damn, this waist band is cutting. Booty looks fantastic and the legs feel great for my thick thighs. Very sad I can only wear them for short runs and never for longer runs or leisure.
I have several pairs in size 10. All the pairs I’ve ordered this year are still size 10 but all are so tight! Yes they’re new but extremely compressing unlike previous pairs. I do like the deep pockets and the length.
