I’m going to cut right to the chase on this one. I LOVE this skirt! Seriously LOVE it.
This skirt is advertised as a “golf” skirt, but it says it’s versatile enough for anything. I’d have to agree. This is the perfect skirt for anyone who wants a little more coverage.
I’ve been “blessed” with substantial thighs. (Note to my German grandmothers: If you were going to share the childbearing hips and the trunklike thighs, could you possibly have given me the boobs too?) I have other skirts. I like those skirts, but this is the first one I’ve found that I think I could happily run a half marathon in. There’s not enough glide in the world to prevent chafing in skirts with just undies under them and anything with a 4-5 inch short is barely long enough on me. The 7″ inseam on the shorties, combined with definite compression, keeps these shorts in place and comfortable. I’ve run 7 miles in them so far with nary a millimeter of slippage. The slightly longer than average overskirt is nice too. I like having my “assets” covered, thankyouverymuch.
There is a pocket on the back of the skirt (intended for a golf card and tee LOL). My iphone fit in it and I’m sure some gels would, but its placement does not make for an attractive look. Unlike some of their other skirts, there are no pockets on the shorties. (This skirt is the same as the Happy Girl skirt(this is an affiliate link), which does have the pocket. Updated to add: I now own many of the Happy Girl Skirts and they are awesome. The pockets on the legs comfortably hold a phone.)
So, what’s not to love about this skirt? The price. With a starting price of $70-75, you aren’t going to buy one in every color. (Ok, maybe you will, but I just can’t justify that.) Thankfully, they frequently have sales and you can occasionally find them on sale on other sites.
So, if like me, you’ve been searching for a skirt with just a little extra coverage and some major “stay put” abilities, this is your skirt.
(Disclaimer: All opinions are my own. I bought this with my own money during one of their sales. No one asked me to do a review.)
