SUMMER ROGA SHORTS
For summer - or any season you might want the lightest, loveliest shorts that are also made from a stretch woven that, literally, cannot be stopped. Along with the entire Roga Collection, Summer Rogas get a refresh while maintaining their favorite fit. The original body fabric is joined to a new Plya Compression waistband, including a newly designed power mesh pocket with bar tacking for security. Wear testers noted a phone stays in place while also providing easy access. Semi- to loose-fit.
- Flyout Stretch Woven (nylon/spandex)
- Plya Compression waistband (polyester/spandex)
- Mighty Mesh pockets on back waistband
- 4" inseam (all sizes)
I'm not usually one to write reviews, but these shorts are so amazing that I couldn't NOT share. If you are debating buying them, stop thinking about it and just do it. They arrived at my house on Friday afternoon and I wore them all night, slept in them, woke up and ran in them, then wore them to Pilates, wore jeans for maybe 4 hours then back on for sleep and wore them again for my LR Sunday. Don't worry, I'm not totally disgusting, I washed them Sunday morning and wore them to bed Sunday night and again for my run this morning. I am going to need about 5 more pairs LOL.
I feel like the fit is PERFECT and the material is light and comfortable. My husband thinks they look a little baggy, and when I buy my next pair I might size down for that reason. Seriously, best shorts ever. Just buy them.
A for comfort, F for pocket. This is my first pair of Oiselle bottoms and I wasn’t unsure what size to order. I’m 5’2” 113 lbs and wear between a 25-27 in jeans depending on style, so I went with a 4 because sometimes 2s can be tight around the hips and I have a big issue with that. The 4 is a tiny bit big, I could’ve gone with the 2, but they weren’t too loose or sloppy so I decided to keep them. Running in them is a dream of comfort!
The pocket though:( My iPhone 7 Plus bounces around like crazy, and during my first run I was constantly reaching back to make sure it wasn’t about to fly out. WHY NO ZIPPER? On my next run I put the phone in a silicone case to prevent slippage and while it felt more secure, it was so difficult to get into the pocket because of the case that I don’t think it’s worth the drama. The final straw for me with using the pocket was during my last run (4 miles) when my phone was moving around like crazy and Google Play kept going to YouTube. Annoying to have to stop and reach back, fix the music, finagle back into the pocke ... only to have it happen again 1 minute later. Really killed my run.
I had to run with my phone in my hand for the last mile. Not cool.
Please, in the next iteration, use a zipper for the pocket and maybe divide it into two separate pockets rather than one long pocket, which allows even large phones to move too much. Also, why no small keys pocket in front? That stinks too!
Sorry to sound negative, these really are cute and oh-so-comfy, but I need a pocket that works at this price.
These are lightweight and so comfortable. They’re hands down the best pair of shorts I’ve owned and I’m back to buy another pair!
I have ran in shorts from many different brands and had the “ride up” issue with each one but THESE are great! I had hardly any major ride up issues and didn’t have to do the awkward pulling down of them while running. I have another style from OIselle but these are magical and plan on getting more for sure
I didn’t anything could top last years Douglas Fir shorts until the Empire came along. The cut feels similar to last year’s cut and the material is super light and the cut is reminiscent of those designer denim cutoffs I used to wear in my early 20s: enough booty to make me wanna shake yet enough coverage to act my age. 😉 Last year, I waited until the end of season to buy a second pair but this year, I have already bought two pairs!
I swear to god these are the best shorts I've ever put on.
I have never had a short fit me better in my life. I will 100% purchase in every color they make. I purchased a size 6. I'm 5'5 140 pounds. athletic/thick legs and hips. It breathes without being a total "moo moo" fit.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make more colors!!!
Loved these updated shorts in S19. The light weight fabric is fantastic at wicking sweat. So disappointed that the cut was changed in S20. The even wider waist band extended through a slightly longer out-seam makes them too loose and baggy on me. Sadly these will need to be returned this season. Wish the classic Roga silhouette from seasons past still existed. If you loved them last year perhaps try a size down, if you needed a little extra room for your muscles this season’s fit is for you!
Same fit as the regular Rogas, but the fabric is light as air. Wonderful for running in this summer heat! I noticed while wearing the blue pair that sweat seeps through and is pretty visible. This is a minor drawback on a fabulous pair of shorts!
