I purchased these awhile ago and had to return because they were not tight around my waist/hips and felt like they were going to fall off. For reference, I purchased size 2 and I am 5'5, 105 pounds. The were thick and looked like nice quality shorts, I just wish they fit me better.
Finally! Huzzah! The perfect compression shorts. I've been looking for these for years. They have the same amount of compression on the waist/tummy as they do on the legs, so no uncomfortable muffin top experience, which just feels weird when you're running. No sausage casing at the bottom of the shorts, which again is just uncomfortable. They stay put and do not ride up when you're moving. (I'm 5'9", approx 170 lbs, recently postpartum and wear the size 10) These just make everything feel tucked in and stay put while you're running around for 17 miles, but without feeling tight and restrictive. I can move easily and freely. LOVE.
I have these in "PNW" and just be aware this will show sweat once you get going for a bit of time. But...you are running, so who cares? I am ready to get these in black too.
I also have the Long Power Pocket Shorts, and I find those to be more suitable for yoga, walking/hiking, biking or just lounging. The compression isn't as strong in the waist for me, so I feel like the top of the waist band digs in in comparison to the rest of the short. And I've found I like the slightly shorted length of the Pocket Jogger for running.
I got the Lapis and PNW colors for summer 2021. I like the new update in the design. The waist band doesn't squeeze as much , which helps to not accentuate the fat in my abdomen. The waist band seems to be similar width to the hips so there is a smoother profile.
I have 10 of the pocket joggers over the years (as well as the firecracker shorts) and this redesign for summer 2021 is my favorite so far. I agree with one of the other posters that it is a bit long (and this is the "short " version, since now there is a mid length one and a long version). maybe shave off an inch in the inseam of this one... would make it even better. I wear this under tennis dresses, so really just need enough room to put 1 tennis ball in the pocket, and would be nicer if the shorts aren't showing.
It fits true to size. I got the size 4, my usual size for all Oiselle tops and bottoms.
I have one pair of PJs from a few years ago (epic purple) and love them for long runs and trail runs. The new design is not my favorite. The legs are at least an inch longer than the old ones and the waist is uncomfortably high - they go above my belly button and I’m 5ft9 with a long torso. Oiselle, please stop messing with a good thing and bring back the old design that was a crowd favorite!
These are legitimately the best run shorts! I have them in this length and the mid length. I like this one a bit better (despite typically preferring longer shorts). The pockets are perfect, they breathe well, and there is zero chaffing. Perfect.
I was nervous to try these on because they look form fitting and I am fairly recent post partum. I was SO happy with the fit, they don't move around on me and the waist band does not dig into my extra mid section. As I regain some of my fitness the shorts seem to mold to my changing body as well. I put my phone in the side pocket with a case and it doesn't pull or bounce. Love these shorts and they are actually really flattering. For reference I'm currently 145, 5'6 with all my fat in my abs and thighs and a size 6 has been great.
These are great shorts for running and no chafing! I have 2 pairs and will get more.
I finally found a way to carry all my stuff. My giant phone has, up to this point, required a waist pack, backpack or jacket with pockets. But not anymore. These shorts carry ALL THE THINGS. The fit is good as well, I’m 5’ 6” and 140 lbs, NOT curvy. I wear a size 4. I just ran a track workout with my iPhone 6s in the leg pocket and it did not bounce out or pull my shorts off. The shorts also did not ride up over a vigorous workout. The waistband is high but it holds in my little mom pooch. I feel like a little bit of a running dork with the mid length (seems like really short or really long is more “in”) but I have capris for cool days and those shorty shorts just ride up into my business, so this length is perfect.
