I was hesitant to buy a running skirt because I knew I wanted shorts underneath. The first one I bought from a different company was too thick and the shorts didn't stay in place. A fellow runner suggested Skirt Sports and while they are pricey, they are worth every penny! I don't like wearing regular bike shorts to run and other running shorts chafe after a few miles. This is the perfect combination to hide and protect my thighs at the same time. The skirt isn't heavy and the shorts have tiny air holes in them to keep you cool. Perfect for any run. I've used it for 3-18 miles and it's perfect no matter the distance. I am about to buy my second one for an upcoming marathon.

I was nervous that the legs would ride up and make for an uncomfortable run, where I had to continually tug the shorts down. Didn't happen - even on a 10 mile run. The shorts stay exactly where they're supposed to. I love, love, love the 2 pockets on the shorts and the built-in hole for my ipod cord allows me to put my ipod in one of the pockets instead of having to wear an armband.
I highly recommend this skirt.

i have run 3 marathons and am training for my 4th half marathon...I am not a petite runner. I am 5'9", 189 pounds. I normally wear a size 10 pants...8 top...in the CWX running tights i'm a medium....I have a curvy shape...and a booty and thighs....so I had high hopes for this skirt. Alas, it is not for my body type. The skirt sits low on the waist...I don't feel comfortable that way, especially since I run with a waist-hydration-pack. The skirt kept creeping up to my natural waist. if I could cinch it with a drawstring, i think i could wear it...but there is no drawstring. So if you're hippy with a small waist, you may have issues. Also, i wasn't a big fan of the material the shorts are made of. I am used to running in CWX tights...which have a smooth feel...and these shorts were slightly irritating. They did stay in place though. I purchased a size large based on skirt sports sizing...but i think i could have gotten a medium...still, the waist wouldn't have worked for me without a drawstring. Despite all that, the skirt is comfy and cute and flattering, but i cannot run in it...i will use it to cross-train, for tennis, for errands. Fortunately i bought a sale priced skirt to see if i liked it...so i'm not out the full $65. I am interested in trying their Skirt Sports Women's Ice Queen Ultra Skirt which DOES include a drawstring waist and adjustable pant length. Or perhaps their Adventure Girl skirt....Skirt Sports Women's Adventure Girl Skirt which also has a drawstring waist. In the meantime, i'll continue running in CWX tights and a running skirt with the shorts cut out of them over the CWX tights. CW-X Women's CW-X 3/4 Stabilyx Tight

Size Name: MediumColor Name: Pink CrushVerified Purchase
In Nov, I purchased a blue Girl Ultra Skirt. I loved it! It fit great, felt great, stayed in place while I ran, etc. So I decided to order another color a couple of months later, and I ordered a pink one (same size). When I received the pink one and tried it on, it did not feel the same at all. The spandex were too tight, the waist slide down when I ran, and the fabric felt itchy. I loved the first one so much that I figured I'd wear it a few times and wash it a few times to see if that got it fitting the same as the blue one. No luck.
After being frustrated that I was now stuck with a skirt that does not fit well, I checked the tag to see what could be different. Turns out, the pink one was made in Taiwan, and the blue one was made in Thailand. I'm very disappointed to see that Skirt Sports cannot seem to get the same product and the same size regardless of which factory is making it. I would suggest trying these on as soon as you get it, and return it right away if it doesn't fit well. Don't make the mistake I did with trying to see if the fit would get better!

I just finished running 8 miles in this skort and it was great! I am 5 ft. and about 110 lbs. with an athletic build through the thighs, hips, and rear. I ordered a small and it fit perfectly through those areas. The short did not ride up on the legs and there was no chaffing. The skort is comfortable and cool. I ordered the skort in pink crush. Though I love the color, it does not hide sweat. After my 8 miles in humid, hot Missouri it looked like I had wet myself, front and back. I will defintely be ordering another one in black and save the pink skort for cooler days.

I really wanted to love this skirt. The compression shorts are are very tight and do stay in place. Most chub rub spots are on the inner thigh. Why did they make these shorts with a bulky seem running along the inner thigh? Perhaps an alternative sewing pattern where the seem runs down the front and back of the leg, vs. the inner thigh? I was very disappointed to have uncomfortable rubbing during my run. It was two chunks of fabric rubbing on each leg with every step. My other shorts ride up, but no bulky sewing to chew up my legs. I'm still searching for the perfect running shorts/skirt. This is not it.

I love the material. The compression shorts are great and don't ride up. But for my tastes, the skirt is too long and loose. I have long legs, and this skirt comes to mid-thigh. I don't wear shorts that long when I run, and I don't want a skirt that long, either. If you prefer a longer skirt, it's great, but it's just not for me.

I am so excited! I have a few running skirts and this is by far the best. The fabric is light, the compression shorts fit very well and do not ride up and the ipod pocket and earphone hole is great. This is designed very well. I did initially order the medium and exchanged it for a small. I fit the M according to the size chart, but felt the M was too big. In my skirt sports skirt with capris I have the M and they do fall a bit when I am running, so I opted for a tighter fit and I am glad that I did. I am 5'7", 140 lbs and wear a 6 at the Gap (for reference). My hips measured in at a M. That said, in the "tough girl" pant, I am a true M. I am also very pleased with Skirt Sports overall- I now have a few bottoms and some tops that I am very pleased with. They are great when running, and also acceptable to hit the store in after. I highly recommend. The other skirt that I have run in is the NB Bonita Skirt- the shorts ride up a bit, it can be frustrating and can cause chafing if you are not careful. That said, it is a fraction of the price.

My Skirt Sports skirt was not a very high quality skirt. For $60 plus shipping I'm bummed I missed the return window. Be sure you read when that is. The hem on my skirt looks terrible and basically I'm embarrassed to wear it. I love the design otherwise. The shorts do NOT ride up.

I am 5'1'', 130# with runners thighs that touch when standing. I ordered the medium based on others reviews, and was very happy with the initial fit and look while on. The pockets on the inner liner shorts are a nice idea. I wore it for a 3 mile run this morning and found that the liner shorts do ride up quite badly. If I wore this for a longer run, I would definitely have chafing issues due to where the liners sit once they have stopped creeping. I wore it around the house to do yardwork afterward, and they didn't ride up as much. I'll keep it because drifit stuff is nice to wear for outdoor work, but it won't be used for running.

Overall disappointed based on what great things I have heard about skirt sports items from some of my running buddies.
