Product Details

A new and special pair of shorts! First, we wanted to honor Kara Goucher's love of the short short. But we also wanted to tackle a few common complaints about compression shorts, namely that they ride up in the front, and often in the back. This design is unique: a standard inseam and front leg shape accommodates the leg lift of running, but then is met around the back of your legs with a lower and more covering rear hem. This construction and shaping means your gluteus maximus stays maximally covered. Add a spacious center back pocket, plus owl artwork made exclusively for Oiselle by Kimberly Hall, and boom: magic Kara shorts.

- Plya Interlock (polyester/spandex)
- rear waist pocket
- owl graphic on side
- interior infinity drawcord
- 2.5" inseam (all sizes)

Cute but not running practical

Great shorts for just wearing around - tried to wear to running and also yoga but got a lot of the short riding up. My gluteus maximus did stay covered! But I was constantly pulling on the shorts because the fabric was rolling.

Don't buy

I wanted to love these (I love Kara Goucher and want to dress in her line), but buy these. They ride up, aren't comfy, and really just are pretty bad.

Uncomfortable, Unreturnable

These shorts are cute and have pockets (hence the 2 stars), but they're uncomfortable and ride up when running. The sizing FITS fine, but when you actually get out and run in them, they're not comfortable and I was pulling at them constantly. Once you realize this (by running in them...), Oiselle's unyielding return policy leaves you no option but to run in uncomfortable shorts or just throw them away. A sad waste of money.

can't decide...

This is my 4th or 5th pair of Osielle shorties. I am on the fence here. They are super comfy but a couple of things are not exactly right. The fabric, while supple and smooth, seems a little sheer. The pocket in the back is a little wonky - I prefer the fold over kind. The design is good, back coverage is adequate. For reference I am 5'8", 145 with muscular booty and quads. they seem to run just a smidge big around the waist. Still deciding but this is my initial impression.

  • design, color, fabric
  • back pocket, sheerness, needs more of a lined front?
