Rated 5 out of 5 by from A dream come true. Do your thighs touch? Do you have a booty? Check and check. I could NOT find a running short that satisfied my vanity, and was functional at the same time. And it was annoyingly hot outside so capris and tights were out. I went through a month or two of ordering different shorts to the store so I could try them on while on location because I knew I was probably going to have to return them. I think I tried every pair that REI had to offer. These were the final pair I tried and I've never looked back. Quick to dry, so comfortable, doesn't give you diaper butt. I usually wear a six in pants but liked the roomier size eight in these puppies. Great for runs AND long hikes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Running Shorts I've been a runner for years (marathons, ironman triathlons, etc.) and can't believe I'm just now discovering Oiselle running shorts. These shorts are HEAVEN. They are not skimpy, but the added coverage doesn't result in the shorts riding up. They are tight fitting enough to not get loose when weighed down with sweat, but still incredibly comfortable and easy to move in. I can't commend these shorts enough! For sizing I am 5'6" and 137 lbs and size 6 is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Shorts! These are my favorite shorts! They are going to replace every other pair of athletic shorts I have. The flat waistband is so flattering and comfortable. The leg openings are roomy enough, but not poofy. I have run over 13 miles in them in the rain and hiked 12+ hour days in them with no problems. I would definitely recommend them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best running shorts for ladies, period. These are the only running shorts that meet all of my criteria: non-poofy, lightweight, yoga-style waistband, no weird slits up the side, pockets (!), and available in cute colors and prints. They are even a teeny bit longer in the back, which nicely provides coverage of upper back thigh / means your sweaty legs won't stick to seats in the summer. My only regret is that REI does not seem to sell the entire size line, but those can be purchased directly from Oiselle.

By Women, For Women

Women are at the center of Seattle-based Oiselle, a start-up that designs running clothes “by women, for women.” According to founder and CEO Sally Bergensen, her team is focused not just on outfitting individuals, but on building a community. “We designed the brand to bring women together,” she says. Pronounced wa-zell, the brand takes its name from the French word for bird, an allusion to the swooping, weightless feeling of the runner’s high. It’s also an apt metaphor for Oiselle’s swift rise in the industry. The brand’s fresh style, ethos of empowerment, and its own elite women’s running team has elevated Oiselle’s presence, and the voice of women runners, in the sport.
