Cute & Comfy
I normally wear a size 6 in all bottoms, but after reading some comments, I sized down to a 4 and I'm really glad I did. I was nervous the waist would be too tight with sizing down, but it fits great and the shorts are just a little too big yet even with the size down. But, it is still comfortable and provides great coverage even with not fitting perfectly.
- The longer fabric in the back to provide more coverage!
- Shorts are a bit big
So close...but still not right
I was really happy to see Oiselle re-made the skirt with compression briefs. But seriously...for the 90% of adult women runners that don't have thigh gap, please make compression shorts that don't ride up! A simple gripper strip at the bottom of each leg would make a huge difference. Figure out the under short that doesn't ride up and add a couple more pockets and this will be a true winner! Love everything else about it.
- Cute style
- Shorts totally ride up, runs a little big compared to similar Oiselle sizes, needs a couple more pockets

Make a toolbelt roga skirt!
I love the idea of running skirts because they offer more coverage than shorts. I was apprehensive of how this would fit/look, but decided to give it a try. It's definitely cute - I would even wear it to run errands or go hiking, etc. I have run in it, and it's great. The material is great and I love the coverage. My ONLY complaint is the lack of pockets. It doesn't have any. I would love if they made this in the toolbelt stlye like the regular rogas so that I could store my phone and nutrition on my runs.
- fit, style, coverage, material
- Lack of storage
Nice piece for running or just for wearing
I've never owned a running skirt before, but I do love Roga shorts, and I'm glad I took a chance on these. I've worn it out as "regular" clothing more than I've actually run in it, but the few times I've run in it have been fine. The shorts ride up a little bit, but they behaved as I expected them to based on every other pair of short compression shorts I've ever run in. A little Body Glide on the inner thighs will solve that problem. I do wish that there was one more inside pocket like the version with briefs and the Roga shorts have. I wear the same size in the skirt as I do in the Roga shorts, but the waistband on the skirt sits a little higher up on me than the shorts do, so if you have a significantly smaller waist circumference than hip circumference, you may be able to size down as some of the other reviewers have mentioned.
- Versatile as a fashion item, comfortable, zippered back pocket
- Waistband sits higher than expected, liner shorts ride up a little bit, wish there were more pockets

Look great on, shorts ride up
The skirt looks great on and I love the confidence that comes with having shorts underneath, but the shorts do run up during a longer run (I'm a size 4, no thigh gap).
I would also like a second pocket.
I might try going down a size if I buy another pair.
- How they make my legs look, the short underneath for confidence.
- Shorts ride up during run, only one pocket.

Love how cute this skirt is! Perfect for a casual day at the beach as well as a run around the lake. I did size down I usually wear between a 6/8 and sized down to a 4 and it was a good fit.
I discovered this item has dual wearing options: a skirt, for before and after a run, and a brief! Yes, I wore this on a run today. As the temperature went up, I hiked the skirt up around my waste until I whipped it back down post run to grab a nice cold iced tea. Still comfortable, versatile, sporty - for running, pickleball and just hanging around town.
- Versatility, sportiness, comfort.
- Shorts could be a skoshi longer as well as the front. But with running as focal point, it's terrific.

I like the skirt a lot but the shorts ride up a lot. I think if you go down a size it would work better. I probably won't wear this on long runs, but perfect for a day of playing outside with the family.
- Skirt coverage
- Shorts ride up on the run
Love The Coverage
I wanted a running skirt for a very long time and was not disappointed when it was my first purchase from Oiselle. I love how the back falls longer for more coverage, and the same goes for the wide waistband. I feel both feminine and fierce when wearing this skirt!
I experience the same riding up of the shorts as other reviewers seem to. It isn't too bothersome at this point but I've yet to take this skirt out for anything longer than 7km (4.3mi). Overall I'm happy.
- Colour, material, waistband, the fact that I own a running skirt!
- I wanted the briefs+skirt but felt limited in colours.

My New Go-To
Very comfortable skirt, wonderfully light material. It would be 5 stars if the skirt and under shorts were 1" longer, but I realize this is personal preference (I'm 40 and have never had a thigh gap). I do really like that the back is longer than the front. I agree that it runs larger compared to the Roga Shorts. I wear medium in the old shorts, but a size 4 in the skirt. ( I'm 5 5'6" and 128 lbs.) I will definitely be buying more of these skirts. I hope they keep making different colors and maybe even some patterns.
Very comfortable but runs large
This skirt is just as comfortable as the Roga shorts but it definitely runs large. I am 5'3" and 135lbs. I buy a 6 in Rogas for a closer fit or an 8 for a little bit roomier fit, and I didn't want my Roga skirt to be too tight so I went with the 8. Big mistake! This fits larger than the Roga shorts of the same size, and I can pull the waistband well up over my navel. Definitely size down if you're between sizes!
- Amazing fabric, nice cut/styling
- Runs large

I was so excited to see Oiselle offering a running skort because I have been wearing them for years from other brands and I love Oiselle products. I wore these for the first time on my long run and was very disappointed. The shorts rode up within the first 10 steps and the waistband kept moving up my torso (I didn't have the waistband tied, and maybe that would help?). The whole run was very uncomfortable and I won't be wearing them for running any more. It's sad, because I like the style and the look. I just wish they had added a band of rubber around the leg holes like my other running skorts do.
- shorts ride up immediately, please add a rubber strip around the leg holes
