Fun prints, great fabric, but more like tights
I have two pairs, the Ikat Ukat and the Downtown prints. The fabric is soft and stretchy and the prints are fun. I'm 5'4" and these are full-length tights on me, not what I'd call capris. I wish Oiselle would make genuine capri-length Spandos (i.e., just below knee length), especially for spring and fall. I agree with the other reviewer that the Downtown print on white fabric is unflattering--when the print is stretched over knees and hips, it looks sheer. It's isn't really sheer but the white fabric shows through.
- soft, stretchy, comfortable fabric and cut
- too long for capris
I basically wear Oiselle leggings every day and these are one of my all time faves. I was initially drawn to them because let’s be honest the prints are awesome but the fit is just as on point: nearly seamless and lightweight make them super comfortable while still warm and durable for year-round wear. Also love the wide waistband and that there’s no zippers, making them also great for yoga (sitting/lying on zippers = super uncomfortable). Bonus: good frequency for new prints being released.

I love this print and they fit great, but no pocket!

I was disappointed when these came in. I'd ordered them in two sizes as I've heard they're less compressive than other O styles. The smaller size arrived with a snag in one leg. The larger size was a bit too large in the waist and were pretty sheer when I checked in the mirror. The floral print was beautiful, though. I'm glad they work for so many others, but your mileage may vary.

I love the way spandos feel! So smooth and light. I found myself lifting my legs high and jumping around more than necessary because I *could.*
Just wishing I hadn't been so gun shy when they first came out! I'm kicking myself for missing out on the cool early prints. Please bring them back!
- lightweight, soft material
- waist is a little loose
Love these leggings
These leggings are your typical amazing Oiselle fabric but the flowers are just sooooo beautiful! It's nice to wear such high end running clothes that are unique and beautiful. My favorite leggings.

Comfort for you, visual punch for all - you too!
Amazing softness and dries quickly, bringing warmth, comfort and a tons of color to energize a run in all weather conditions. I was initially quite gun-shy about some of the crazy prints. But, after trying them on, the fabric convinced me as "wow, these are awesome". What did drove it to my closet was discovering the surprising delight of how the design looked even better when worn.

Made in USA!
The fabric is amazing! Super soft with fun prints made in the USA.
Does it get any better?!
The fit is true to size, but because of the waist design, you can easily size down for more compression without any rollover issues.

Almost but not quite.
I have been so close to trying a pair of these, and when the Onna print came out, I finally took a chance. I ordered both a S and a M based on other reviewers' experiences with them running a tad large. (I'm 5'4" and 130# and usually a 6 in Oiselle). The M was great - not compressive but felt like it would stay put and allow for movement. The fabric is smooth and so so comfortable. Length was perfect. Waistband comfy and I don't mind the no pockets. And the print!!! It's so gorgeous in person - a midnight blue/black. However, as soon as I tested bending and stretching, the fact that it's printed on white material made it appear very unflattering (especially the hips and bum). I'm really disappointed because other than that weird effect, I loved them. Maybe it's because I'm curvy that it was so evident. But I want to feel confident to move in them and I know it's a deal breaker for me.
