I carry all my extra weight in my thighs. You think I exaggerate, but if I could trim down my thighs, I’d easily wear one size smaller, maybe even two. Because of that, as much as I’d like to be a skirt girl like G, T, and J, I’ve been unable to find a skirt with long enough compression shorts. I always joked that I could heat the world with the friction from my legs and that there wasn’t enough glide in existence to prevent that.
Enter my new running skirt. I was offered the opportunity to review a skirt from Mondetta (review next week). When I got it, I discovered the shorts underneath fit me like bun huggers. Uh oh. I decided to give it a try anyways on a short run in my bigger Merrell Pace Gloves (review of those next week too). I made sure to use plenty of Glide LOL.
And? I loved it. I felt cute while I was running and while there was definitely some thigh rub going on, there was no chafe. Not sure if it would work for longer runs (greater than 3 miles), but you can bet I’ll be experimenting with that.
Hmm, am I going to cross over to the dark side?

Haha….I'm a member of the chub rub club too!!!! But I've found that running in a skirt with just briefs stops it for me. I just slap on the glide and I'm chafe free! The more fabric between my pigs the worse the problem!!!!
I just got my very first running skirt and really liked it and thinking of doing more. I do like my shorts to be a little longer to avoid the chafing. looking forward to seeing how you like yours.
One you run in a skirt, you'll never go back! 🙂
Ha! We talked about your skirt issues on our run on Wednesday. Convert! You know you want to!
Ha ha! I just purchased my 2nd running skirt this week. Yes…I think I may be making the switch to the dark side.Oh…and so glad you didn't burst into flame. That's a good thing!
I can't wait for your review, I just checked out their site and CUTE STUFF!Glad you found a skirt you like, I go through bodyglide like crazy!
Welcome to the skirt club. Although, I'm not really feeling the skirts this year for some reason. I guess we'll see.
I just got my 2nd runninfg skirt. I wore the 1st one for my first half and I plan to wear the 2nd for my 2nd. I too wish the shorts were longer (to cover my thighs.BTW: yours do not look big!!
oh gawd, not the dark side!!!
I just got my first running skirt a couple of months ago. I wore it on a 10k run. It worked good, but I like to wear another pair of compression shorts under the shorts already there. I worry about people seeing my back side jiggle to much. I also wear compression shorts under my shorts. I cant stand everything jiggling. No sure am hook yet on the running skirts.
heybeer geek had to like it . . . . . no?! 😉
Awesome! Love skirts!
I am going to be the voice of dissent here. I just bought my first skirt and as much as I wanted to love it, I didn't. I just felt very aware of it. Maybe I need to wear it a few more times. I just wish running shorts came in such pretty prints and colors as skirts. I am sick of plain black shorts.
Been trying to find a skirt, gotta check it out!
I've yet to run in a skirt. If it ever warms up around here, maybe this will be the year to try it!
