10 years later, our signature super short gets its most dramatic update with regard to function and fabric. Now, across all Rogas, an extra large, center back zip pocket, Plya Compression waistband, and a new Roga Stretch Woven body fabric that has all the same stretch Roga fans know and love, but is more fluid, with a subtle jacquard weave. The fit, the shaping, the ability to go any and every mile—we’re happy to present you with a rewired classic that honors the original quest for the non-poofy running shorts!

I am 5’7” and 138 lbs and got a size 6. They are looser in the leg and butt than they appear in the picture, but sizing down to a 4 would give me muffin top, I think. I love them as they are! No chafing or riding up at all. I found the liner comfy. My iPhone 8 Plus doesn’t fit in the pocket well, though.
Finally a pair of shorts that fit! To be honest, I’ve debated buying these for over a year and stuck to LuluLemon because I knew they fit half decently. But now I realize that I’ve been missing out this whole time! Looks like I’m going to order another pair ASAP!
Thanks for making such great fitting shorts! And thanks to everyone who reviewed to say size down. Typically I wear a 6.
(Size 4 fit perfect!)
I bought my first pair of roga shorts back in 2016 and I have worn the absolute living daylights out of them. I love that the pocket is bigger and now at the low back now, not on one cheek. Oiselle has such high quality garments and you really get maximum value and style out of these items. These shorts are a great upgrade! The fit is better and I love the floral pattern and other colors! The bottom seams do curl up for me when I'm running which contrasts against the floral with the white backing, but only a little bit. When the two pairs I have wear out in another four years, I'll be back for more!
I have been wearing and loving Rogas since 2009. Some of the changes that have been made over that period I like (center back zip pocket that my phone fits into--yes! interior/infinity drawcord--yes!). Others I'm less enthusiastic about: I am not a big fan of the jacquard weave, for example, and I preferred the old waistbands that were wide but also had stitching across (I know this isn't a great description but if you had those and liked the waistband you probably know what I mean and if you didn't it's not relevant, LOL). Also, recently it seems--at least to me--like the sizing is all over the place. ALL THAT SAID, I have been loving the MF Grounded print since it came out and finally decided to go for it. I ordered a size 6, because that's what I used to wear in Rogas, and I was shocked at how baggy the shorts were. They also seemed looser in the waist than my old pairs so I decided bite the bullet on the shipping and size down--and I'm so glad I did. The smaller size gives me the streamlined look I'm used to from these shorts, and they are light as air on the run. No chafing, no riding up/tugging down. After reading the other reviews I guess I wonder if they're giving me camel toe but I haven't noticed it on either of the runs I've worn them on so far. And they are gorgeous. I love the fact that floral print isn't pink and purple!
Not a fan of the updates. I want the last version back, or the version before that. I’ve been a roga wearer since 2014 and it’s undergone a few revamps in that time frame. This latest makes it a short I’ll return. I did try the OG’s and those are nothing like my first pair either and I returned those last week. Why not just make a new sort next time instead of messing with them?
Please fix the camel toe issue. It’s mentioned several times. I want to buy these shorts again but I can’t because of that issue.
Really happy with these shorts. I've never tried rogas before, so I can't compare them to previous years' fits, but I really like these! I am 5'5", 130-135lbs, and much larger in the hips than in the waist. So, I like that these are not too tight in my thighs. I was right between a 6 and 8 by measurement. Went with the 6 and they fit perfect!
I must admit I was a bit apprehensive about ordering when I noticed the comments about the shorts being redesigned. However when I noticed that the shorts had a discount a few weeks ago, I bit the bullet and purchased three pairs (one Roga, 2 Summer Rogas). I compared the new ones to my previous pairs (summer rogas) and didn't find any concerning differences. Wearing them around town there has been no difference in performance/functionality/quality. I still love these shorts! No chafing - which is a miracle! Washing, drying and wearing my other two pairs over and over in the last year has demonstrated their quality as there is no difference in them today and the day I purchased them. If you are on the fence about ordering, bite the bullet and go for it!
For sizing, I am 5'2'' and approx 118 lbs and wear a size 4.
Oiselle - please make the summer rogas come in more colors!
