Finding the right fit
l'm 5'7, 130 lbs and fall between a 4 + 6 in Oiselle leggings, so my first pair of Roga shorts were a size 4. They were comfortable, but felt so short and rode up so much. I decided to try again with a size 6 and I'm really happy with my decision. They are a little loose around my waste, but they stay on and they do not ride up nearly ride up as much as my other pair. Overall comfort is excellent and I'm happy with my purchase.
- comfort, back zipper, length
- hard to tighten down
Love these shorts!
normally I never leave reviews about clothes but I love these shorts. They are so comfortable and breathable, if I had an unlimited budget I would own so many pairs. The pocket is great!
Only issue was originally I ordered a 4 because that is my normal jean size and the waist was loose so I exchanged for a 2. I am 5'5" and 118 lbs (just to give a size reference).
- Material, fit, pocket
Love the new fabric!
Love love love the waist band on these and the weight, especially the stretch of the new Roga material is amazing. I am currently pregnant and was unsure with the new fit which size would be best, turns out my same pre-pregnancy size is perfect because the extra weight I've added around my upper legs and butt stretch nicely into these but would have needed to size one up in the fit and fabric of 2017 Rogas to not feel too restricted. I honestly don't think these are much looser, or baggier, just there's more give to this new fabric. Try them out yourself!
- fabric stretch and weight, plus the prints and colors this season are again beautiful!

Runs very large
I love wearing baggy shorts while running, but these take the cake in baggy! They really are exceptionally large. For comparison, I am a solid size 6 in LuLu Lemon shorts. I'm a solid size 6 in virtually all brands. So, I ordered size 6 in the pop color. I tried them on and they are very, very large. Like I need to pull the drawstring tight to keep them up large. I unfortunately took off the tags before trying them on, so I will keep them. Maybe just lounge around shorts because they slip down while running. Very disappointed. BTW, I love the color, but I was expecting more of a yellow. In fact, its more like florescent.
- fabric is cool
- 5 ft 4 inches
According to the size chart, I take a size 6. I ordered a size 6, I liked them when I put them on the first time, but they chafe my thighs. I probably could've easily went down a size or maybe even two to prevent this. They are very comfortable and I love the material, but I cannot run in them (I've tried several times). I don't generally chafe wearing shorts, but these shorts, probably because they do not fit me, allow my legs to chafe during my runs.

Summer Roga is a better fit
Good but not the best. I love the looser fit of the Summer Roga style and will definitely go for those first in my drawer when hitting the road or gym. I bought my usual size 4 in both styles. The Summer Roga just fits better over muscular thighs in my case with the softer and more flowy fabric. In comparing the Roga, Toolbelt Roga, and Summer Roga, the Roga was the smallest 4 and Summer Roga the largest.
For true to size! No riding up even on my 15 miler. I will absolutely buy another pair of Roga shorts!

If you have thicker thighs and prefer a longer inseam these shorts are pretty perfect. I like the long roga shorts and have two pairs for days I don't want to show a lot of leg, but given I am 5'4 the regular roga shorts are truly the perfect length. I ran a rainy, hilly 10k in these and didn't have any chafing or required adjusting with these so they are winners in my book.
Can't get size right
These shorts are everything most reviewers say: don't ride up, comfortable, flattering, functional. LOVE the coral color. But, I got a size 8 (am usually a 6-8 in jeans but always size up for shorts for my athletic figure) and they're really big. Big in the waist, big in the legs, and (weirdest part) big in the inner brief. On the other hand, they're pretty short, both as far as leg material and super low on the belly (inches below my belly button) . I may try a 6 but fear the small/short parts would only be smaller and shorter.
- No ride up, comfortable material, well made
- hard to get size right
