Oiselle Stride Short Giveaway

back view of Stride Shorts

Incredible giveaway to share with you today!

I received my first pair of Stride Shorts from Oiselle in March. Before I slipped them on it was love at first sight. The fabric was so soft and durable. I knew right away these would become my favorite shorts. Here is a picture from there website and description.

Oiselle Stride Short indigo

Oiselle’s popular compression running shorts have been updated for Spring 12. Same flattering fit, new fabric. Now the Stride Short has more compression without added bulk or loss of stretch.

When you slip these shorts on you feel the immediate hug of the material, but then never feel anything but confident once you start running. They are carefully designed to never ride up. The perfect racing shorts.

– new! high compression fabric – never ride up – 4″ inseam – 90% micropoly/10% spandex – machine washable

me in the Stride Shorts

In a nutshell these are my go to shorts for all gym workouts (strength, core, conditioning) Bikram Yoga, racing and of course running. I can get into any position without a flashing my crotch to everyone. I have a similar style by another company (lets say it rhymes with juicy) and I have worn them for a few years for the same events but now they are in the back of the drawer collecting dust while I wear my Stride shorts. I am often washing them midweek so I can have them again (I guess I should order more pairs).

Here is how I would describe the fit: PERFECT.  I have a pretty toned body but after 2 babies there is always a bit extra on the lower ab area and many shorts pinch into your waist and create a nice muffin top look (Oiselle Stride Shorts do not). Also other shorts pinch in the thigh creating the dreaded sausage thigh look. They also stay put not riding up, no women wants to be running and tugging at the same time or have cheekies hanging out. There is not a pocket but a gel tucks nicely into the waist band.
I have done 2 races in them so far and loved them. The fabric has just enough compression to fit snug. I often have trouble with fit since my waist is pretty small but hips a bit bigger. The Stride short feels like it was designed for me.

The fabulous team at Oiselle is giving 1 of my lucky blog readers a free pair of Stride Shorts.

    Everything you said about compression shorts is the reason I’m wary to try them (muffin top, sausage thighs, etc!) But I have always wanted to try them and these sounds awesome. I would prefer them in black, it’s more basic and I’d be more comfy, since wearing tight shorts for the first time is already intimidating enough! 🙂
