Made from our Plya Compression (popularized in Spandos Capris), this go-to compression short is made of interlock fabric, known for being lightweight, compressive, and very soft/smooth. Its unique knit structure also prevents sheerness. The Birds Everywhere print is yarn dyed so there is no white yarn show-through. Our 360 waistband pocket goes all the way around, and is ample enough to hold everything from keys to fuel to a phone.

- Plya Interlock (polyester / spandex)
- interior drawcord
- 360 waistband pocket
- 4.75" inseam (all sizes)

Offering a solution

So cute! But they totally do ride up. Why can’t we add that plastic edge to the bottom of the leg opening like all my cycling shorts have to stop this? I have to wait until my legs are sweaty enough to hold these in place. Please let me know when you’ve solved this so I can buy one of every color.

Fabulous

These shorts are cute, comfy and the pockets are wonderful. They seem not to ride up either which is nice.

Pockets galore

Pockets galore and wide thick fabric provides subtle, gentle compression on belly. This makes for smooth lines and comfort. Please make more in size 4. So sad that they are out of stock. I'm glad I at least have 1 pair to love.

Thumbs up for comfort, thumbs down for performance

These fit comfortably super smooth and soft with no tight waist band and spot on for my usual size 6. The pockets are awesome - they hold a lot, easy access. The only issue is they roll up. I'd say they 'ride' up but really, they roll. I have experienced what others have where shorts in similar styles ride up at first a little, then calm down and stay put once you've been running a bit. But these rolled (up as high as booty shorts) right away and never stopped doing it. I'll see how they do in the gym but they definitely won't be worn for running.

Actually love the pockets, but inner seam led to terrible chafing

At first I loved these shorts, and they were great for a few 5-8 mile runs here in Miami where it is extremely hot and humid during the summer. I actually found the pockets perfect for holding my gels and didn't have any issues with them. They won't hold things vertically, but horizontally it's fine. However on my last 10 miler in extreme heat/sweaty conditions the chafing was so horrible I don't think i'll be able to wear them for a long run again. And I did use body glide. The inner seam is just way, way too thick. Not a great design. I am usually a 2/4 but got a 4, and after a couple uses they seem a little stretched out. I would like to see if the issue is solved by getting either a 2 or trying the mini, but with the return policy as it currently is, I don't want to spend more money returning things that don't fit. I did try both the regular and mini at first and thought the mini was riding up too much, so I returned it. Hope Oiselle reconsiders this policy in the future in favor of free returns.

love them

I’m so glad I ordered these! The pocket could be better but honestly I have an iPhone XS Max and it didn’t fall out so I’m not complaining. These didn’t ride up on me at all, they are going to be my go-to long run shorts from now on, thanks Oiselle!

Terrible Pockets Great Shorts

I agree with the other reviews that the pockets are terrible and don't hold items well. However, the shorts did not ride up for me. They were comfortable, lightweight, and move well. I enjoy these overall, but my favorite shorts from Oiselle are still the pocket joggers.

Wanted to love them,...

I love the color and the material, unfortunately, they ride up immediately. Like a other reviewer wrote, I felt the same, that they would have stayed out once they got sweaty. It just got worse. There’s no grip on the bottom to hold them. I kept them for casual wear around the house. Disappointed.
