The big sister of our wildly popular gym girl ultra skirt, the happy girl skirt promises to take care of you. The 17" skirt makes this style a shoe-in for any activity requiring a little more modesty (like wearing it to work!) and is embraced by women of all body types. The 7" built-in semi-compression shorts stay-put eliminating those dreaded thigh-chafing issues Forever. Three well-placed, ample pockets give you lots of secret stash options. While this longer running style was made for the roads, it can do oh-so-much more. From a 5K to a work meeting to happy hour, this skirt backs up its claim - it makes you happy.

So the top 3 things I looked for in a skort; the fit, staying power and practicality, and style.
To help describe how this skort fits I think it is useful to know what kind of body is wearing it.
I am 5'10" and 175 on a good day, and wear a 10 or 12 depending on clothing style or item. I am active but not firm bodied like I would like to be. This means I've got some working horse thighs on me and a little bit of a belly.
I bought the black in size LG and it fits perfect. The skirt and under shorts are definitely longer than most skorts I've come across. It falls mid thigh (about 4-5inches above my knees. For some this may not be a plus, but it my case I like the additional coverage. I think the length of the short is also what helps this skort stay in place. I did not find the length to be hindrance while running either.
Other reviews mentioned that it rode a bit low on the hips, and made for an unflattering look. I was worried about this as I have that belly I mentioned...but turns out it really is quite flattering. I don't know if I hiked it up higher...(I don't think so because I imagine that would cause some discomfort on my lady parts) but the skort hits just below my belly button. So above my hips but not in a mom-jeans high-waisted way. I guess more like boot cut jeans fit...mid rise. This is a comfortable fit for me, but understandably not the fit for every body type.
The fabric is not as light weight as the nylon mesh skorts I've seen, but the spandex fabric is not heavy either. I would describe it as mid-light weight which helps it fall nicely.
The pockets are a definite plus. Hidden on thighs and one zippered in the back. Perfect for carrying a key, and credit or ID cards depending on what you're up to.
The shorts do not ride! or as another reviewer said and I love "no chub rub"! I have already taken these shorts on a 12 mile hike, and 6 mile run and they don't budge...and continue to be absolutely comfy. I have not experienced any thigh squeeze or bulge from the shorts and they stay in place.
I think they are very cute...even though I only got the black...but they have a lot of versatility.
Basically I am so excited that I took a chance and bought this skort. So excited in fact that I've already bought the orange one as well and it's on it's way. I am truly now a "Happy Girl;)."
