O-Mazing Power Shorts


Color: Black

Compression shorts lovers: if you know, you know! That just-right fit is a combination of fabric, fit, and features. And these are a trifecta: Power Plya™ is thicker than our classic Plya, with all the support needed to hold you in. The fit of the legs have been thought through, providing more coverage in the back where needed. And our signature 360 degree pocket design makes it easy for you to store keys, fuel, or a phone -- front, back or side. Simply O-mazing for all activities, near and far.


• Interior drawcord
• 360 waistband pocket
• 5" inseam (all sizes)

Good for pockets bad for…

I have tried a few different brands of these style of running shorts. This is the only brand that the gusset falls short and shows camel toe. The pockets around the waistband are great but after wearing them once and looking in the mirror I’m likely to stick with the other brands.

Bailed on a run because of these

I have a few pairs of the older version of the o mazing leggings and they are my absolute favorite tights, so I had high hopes for these. Disappointingly, they are horrible! I even sized down as suggested by a few other reviews without any luck. I have never had to end a run early because of my running apparel before but these were riding up so badly that I had to turn around almost immediately.

I wanted to love them!

I read a good review for these shorts awhile back in Outside or Runner’s world. I finally purchased them recently. As soon as they arrived, I put them on and went for a run. They unfortunately started riding up right away. I was pretty uncomfortable most of the run— I spent the whole time trying to pull them down. I contacted customer service and they fortunately issued a gift card covering the cost of the shorts since this was my first purchase (thank you, Oiselle!). I would not recommend these for running.


I had really high hopes for these, but they fell a little short. I understand that there is double fabric required to make the waist pockets, but it added a lot of bulk and weight that I found uncomfortable, especially in the Miami heat/humidity. Also, they started riding up before I even made it around the corner, and ultimately made me cut my run short. Unfortunately I won't be able to wear these again.
I know it's been said before but I think it's worth mentioning again that the strict return/exchange policy has made it really hard for me to take a chance on new products. Many of us can vouch for the fact that we don't know if a product will suit us until we have road tested it. Now I am in a position where I spent $50 on shorts that I wore for 20 minutes and can never wear again. Sadly, this is not the first time this has happened. I would love to continue to support the Oiselle brand but unfortunately I can't continue to afford to.
