3.0 out of 5 stars Needs Drawstring Waist, September 18, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Skirt Sports Women's Gym Girl Ultra Skirt (Apparel)
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
