Mac Roga Shorts
For those who seek maximum legs-out freedom, but an alternative to the booty shorts, the Mac Roga was inspired by Sarah “Mac” Robinson who wanted Rogas that were “a little less.” The same semi-fitted style that defines the Roga family, including an extra large, center back zip pocket, Plya™ Compression waistband, and Roga Stretch Woven fabric that is fluid, drapey, and forms to your body!
I’ve worn Oiselle for a decade but had never tried the Mac Roga. I just thought they’d be too short. WELL. I finally tried a pair, and I *love* them. What I thought was “too short” is just right. They are super flattering and don’t feel too revealing at all. If you’ve always thought, “nope, not for me,” try them once! Magical fit.
I prefer women’s cuts but the inner lining is rarely large enough, well, this should be Unisex. Great cut. I am between M and L and I got size 6 - perfect size. I have 35 marathons under my belt and am preparing London. As a top 10% speed runner, I sweat most shorts out of shape. The Nike Aeroswift, both 3” and 5” look great until mile 4. These are my new standard. Even the back pocket is actually large enough to mean something. Serious pro men stuff and also beyond sexy without being too much to wear. The black tissue hides any bumps in front, makes this actually humble for a guy.
I love many of the previous seasons’ mac rogas but I had to return these sadly. I ordered my usual size 2(I am 5’2”, ~115#) but the crotch is unflattering as it bunches up - you can see it a bit in the model photos too. Maybe they fit others differently but these did not work out for me sadly.
