My Replacement for Stride Shorts!

OMG these are my new favorites from Oiselle! I am a stride short groupie, but these XC Kara Shorts take the cake for sure.

I am typically size 6 in bottoms but got both 6 and 8 to try. I decided to keep both because I accidentally got the pink not black color in 8. I've worn both and can't completely decide which size, but I think I would pick the 6's going forward for compression & competition. The best part is the little longer backside - I think this helps with the riding up.

They ride up very little if at all. I ran a faster paced race in the size 6's and didn't notice riding up. The best part is the little longer backside - I think this helps limit the riding up.

I am on the small side of size 4, somewhat in between size 2 & 4. These run somewhat big in my opinion. The cut isn't exactly great for apple shapes. The waist is super small and hips are wider than most of their shorts run. Most 2's are too tight on my waist so I decided to order up in size. The waist fits fine for me in these shorts (a little big) but the pant leg openings are very large on me. Too flowy and loose for my liking.

  • No pockets, cut isn't flattering for apple shape
