LONG ROGA SHORTS
The BFF to many a long-shorts lover. And as with all the Rogas, these get a fantastic upgrade in function and fabric. The front zip pocket is joined by the addition of an extra large, center back waistband pocket, which is even better for keeping items flat against the body while running. In addition to the Plya Compression waistband, all Roga styles come in a new Roga Stretch Woven body fabric that maintains the qualities you love in the Roga (comfort, stretch) but with improved drape and hand feel.
- Roga Stretch Woven fabric (polyester/spandex)
- Plya Compression waistband (polyester/spandex)
- interior drawcord
- built-in technical liner
- rear zip waist pocket
- four way stretch for full motion
- machine washable
- 6" inseam (all sizes)
EXTENDED SIZING review. I purchased long rogas and flyout tanks. For reference I wear an 18 in jeans and 20 in dresses. I chose size 20/22 because I measure for a 24/26 for my waist and 16/18 for my hips, so I decided on meeting in the middle and going for 20/22 for the tops and bottoms. I will keep everything but next time I may go for the 24/26 for tops. The shorts are perfect. I also got the dark night runner trucker. Highly recommended! 💕🙌🏼
Pictures include a closeup of the fall floral next to the queen color. I may also purchase the green color. The other set is the cirrus print and crackle.
I had given up running in shorts in favor of capri leggings because it is way to distracting and uncomfortable when the shorts ride up. Guess what - these absolutely don't and its heavenly. All the reviews I read purchasers seemed to have bought smaller sizes so I was wary, I'm 5'9" 175lbs and usually wear a size 10 so I bought the size 10 and they are a bit loose, but barely, and I love the fit and performance. In addition to the perfect fit (which is more than enough reason for me to buy a second pair) it also has a handy pocket in the back that fits my large iphone and another zippered pocket in the front so i can carry all the things I run with easily. The feel of the fabric is lovely and they really actually truly don't ride up!
I just bought my first pair of Long Rogas this summer, after a lifelong struggle to find running shorts that didn't ride up/chafe AND fit at the waistband. Thank you, Oiselle, for being true to size AND for improving your options for all body types. I was able to buy my actual size vs. buying 1-2 sizes too big to accommodate my thighs, which has been typical for running shorts up until the LONG ROGAS! (I'm 5'6" 28in waist, 39-40hip - usually an 8 - classic hourglass with broad shoulders, small waist, athletic thighs.) These shorts have been my go-to for walks/runs and general wearing around the house. I only had the option to get basic black (other colors were sold out), so I watched wistfully as someone ran by my on the trail in the original Moody Floral version. Vowed that if Oiselle ever released a dark floral again, I wouldn't hesitate. Scooped up Fall Floral today and will, I'm sure, make other runners in my neighborhood jealous now. LONG LIVE THE LONG ROGAS!
I now have 5 pairs of these shorts and they are the best. I have thick thighs from genetics, lots of squats, and cookies -- the length keeps me comfortable during a run, a walk, or a bootcamp. They are also pretty flattering. These are my go-to shorts!
Shorts Worth Writing A Review
I've been looking for shorts that don't ride up when I trail run with no luck. I've tried two other Oiselle Rogas and their bike shorts, Patagonia's longer shorts, Lululemon and they all fit great but ride up when I run. These longer Rogas are finally the winner! They're super comfortable (just like all things Oiselle) and they stay in place. I'm so excited to finally have a pair of shorts that stay put...guess I'll be buying more. I'm 5'7", 140, size 6, TTS.
Sally recently celebrated her birthday with the FASTFAVE sale and I used that opportunity to scoop up another pair of the Long Rogas. I bought a pair years ago and they have become my go to COVID teleworking shorts adding to their normal running, hiking, "just love how comfortable they are" duties. I am not sure when they were redesigned (could have been multiple times since my first pair - LOL) but I LOVE THE NEW VERSION even more!!! Kicking myself for not buying two pairs during the FASTFAVE sale. Definitely know why the Rogas are a fav! One of the most versatile, comfortable shorts I have owned (and of course like all Oiselle clothing, they last forever)!
I love these shorts. I am 5”10 , 155lbs and finding shorts that aren’t super short for tall girls are hard to find!!! I’ve been given generous booty & thighs. Oiselle long rouge shorts are my favorite to keep me covered 💜💜. Please make more!! I missed out on the red and have all colors.except those crazy flowered ones. 🤣 I work out 3-4 days a week. They wash up & wear great! They have one zippered pocket I keep my rings if I’m lifting weights and forget to take rings off before I go to Gym. Wide waistband so comfy with drawstring if needed, stretchy, quick dry... I can’t live without these shorts!! I would buy more if I could ever find them In stock.
At the time of posting this review I came to the item to see if there were any other colors available and it made me smile that there were 35 reviews all giving these shorts 5 stars :-) Couldn't agree more and why I popped back in to check. I have these in black and a floral print and just love them, for running or just for everyday. To be perfectly honest here ladies, @ 58, almost 59 I really never thought I'd wear running shorts around town anymore but these are just fabulous. I feel perfectly comfortable love the length and the fit. I'm tall, 5'10" and these are just perfect.
