TRACK STAR SHORTS
Our first ever two-in-one shorts, this design has a lot of functionality in a very simple package. Instead of a traditional running short liner, the base layer is our Plya Compression (so think booty short), with the semi-fitted layer over the top. The waistband is our classic flat and pocketed design, but the side pockets are the true design breakthrough. The side leg pockets, with the opening on the outside, are attached to the compression bottom underneath, rather than the outerlayer. The upshot: when moving or running, objects in the side pockets stay secure against your leg vs. bouncing around. Power to the pockets!

So happy I bought a pair of these! Really comfortable and flattering. Plus the pockets are so practical. Ordered a size 2 and the fit is superb (27" waist, 35 hips, 115 lb). I didn't experience any rubbing. I can understand why some ladies feel sized out, because anyone a little more slender and a 2 would probably be baggy. My only critique is that they're a bit high/long. Personal opinion, I think they'd be absolutely perfect with an inch lower rise and inch higher inseam.
If the seam in the under layer changed I would buy more pairs. I really like the one pair I have but I can’t do 2+ hour runs in them or the seam rubs my skin raw.
I have Rogas too, but I like these better. These fit better, more fitted though not tight. More flattering. LOVE the side pockets, can't use for phone but great for everything else one needs on the road/trails. I do prefer the lining of the Rogas more, at least in hot weather because the compression lining is a big hotter. In cooler weather that won't matter and these are super comfortable. These are the running shorts I reach for first. I am 5'8" and 126 lbs, athletic build, narrow hips.
These are some great looking running shorts. They also double as tennis shorts b/c you can fit a tennis ball in each side pocket. the pockets are a bit small to fit a phone for running (about 1/3 of the phone sticks out), but fine for holding your phone if you're just walking around.
a lot of shorts make me look fat but this design somehow makes everything seems slimmer.
Just a heads up , it runs large ... I wear 4 in almost all oiselle tops and bottoms but for some reason for these shorts (and Roga shorts), I Have to get a 2. the 4 is way too lose . Not sure why it runs so large. I'm a rather thick person .... and there are a ton of much thinner ladies out there. What would they wear if I'm already getting the smallest size it comes in...
Love the pockets on these shorts. The side pockets are deep enough to stash your phone and it doesn’t fall out. The inside liner though has a seam right in the middle of the crotch—very uncomfortable and chafes your lady parts. Will have to make some modifications or wear underwear with them. Really disappointing considering how expensive these shorts are. Great quality otherwise.
I love how these shorts look on and are great for regular work outs and hanging out however they do ride up instantly with running. I found them true to size, I typically wear a size 6 and a 6 in these fit fine.
I really love the shorts but can’t wear them on long runs because the straight seam gives me the worst chaffe. I think updating it to a gusseted crotch would help it a lot!
I have been running exclusively in Rogas for about 5 years now and just recently bought a new pair. They don't have the same feel/fit as my older ones, so I figured I'd try a different style of the heck of it so I ordered these. I love them!! The compression shorts stayed put and they are super comfy! I wore them on my first half marathon and didn't fuss with them at all. Definitely in my regular rotation of running shorts with my Rogas. I am 5' 5", 145lb and I ordered a 10, same size as my Rogas. I could easily size down to an 8 and they would still fit but I don't like anything tight on my waist and these fit perfect and aren't too baggy elsewhere.
