At Oiselle, our vision is to help all women feel strong and free through the joy of running. Our mission is to design great product, build the sisterhood, and improve the sport. May we all experience the transformative power of sports and community.
Knickers are the ultimate in versatile bottoms. All the compression and comfort of full tights, but the easy, below the knee length that makes them great for all types of workouts. Our classic flock plus Oiselle logotype kicks it up a notch - for when your legs go fast, and your heart goes free.
I am 5'2" 115lbs and the size 2 fits perfectly. They stay up when I run, but don't create a muffin top. The material feels substantial without being heavy. I also love the pocket!
Update to my previous review:
Either I lost weight or the waistband I thought at first was too tight stretched just enough over the summer to be perfectly comfortable and still tight enough that I don't have to tie the drawcord to keep them from slipping down (I don't think I lost weight!). Still love the soft, comfortable, quick drying fabric and am eternally grateful Oiselle offers knickers, my preferred length for running. When it gets cold I just put a longer length layer underneath or wear compression socks. I'm normally a 4 or 6, depending on brand, and I get these in a 6.
I own multiple pairs of Oiselle knickers and capris so I was excited for these based on reviews, but very disappointed in the fit. I ordered my usual size 4.
Pros: soft material, cute print
Cons: not enough compression in the legs/butt, material too loose in odd places, like the front under the waistband. At the same time, a way too tight and inflexible waistband. I have a small waist and muscular thighs so this type of fit for me was very strange.
Also disappointing that I have to pay to send these back and can't just exchange.
These are my favorite running tights/capris. The material is not too heavy for summer. The waist band isn't as tight as some of the other style tights. The only change I would make is adding a pocket to the other side like some of the other styles. I hope they introduce additional colors in the future.
