Skirt

I am in the market for a running skirt- and there are SO many out there, wow! I know a lot of you all have them, so any suggestions would be great. What you like or don't about yours- what you would look for etc. Or if skirts aren't your thing, what is?

Thanks!

My runningskirts.com skirt is my favorite. I like the briefs underneath the best, and that is what they have. I also have a Skirt Sport skirt that I really like- it has compression shorts under it, which are not as comfy for me as the briefs. I also have a Champion brand one from Target. It is comfy, but they run big. Now that I am pregnant the xs will stay on. I did notice they added a bunch of styles recently, and they seem to be running more true to size, and have a really cute selection.

I second the runningskirts.com! I personaly own 27 of them.... I am addicted and they hold up very very well!

I have a nike "adventure skirt" or at least I think that's what it's called. Love it.

27???? Erin, are you serious? You must never need to do laundry!

I also have 2 Champion brand skirts from Target. I wore one during the SLC marathon. I love the way they look and feel.

I have a champion one from Target and LOVE it. I'd much rather wear my skirt than shorts now.

I have the champion one from Target. I have one of the last years design and one of the new design from this year. I like my last years version better simply because it has a zipper pocket in the middle of the back on the top. I'm always needed some extra storage for gel packs, gu and what not.

I had one from new balance, but the bottom of the compression shorts had a band that was kind of textured or had ridges, I don't know what you call it, and it chaffed my legs. I took it back.

I totally LOVE wearing my skirts!

I don't have one but have always wanted one. Given that Erin owns 27 of this particular skirt, I've just ordered one online. They have some on sale right now so $32 total with shipping! I love that the company was started by running sisters (twins!) and the skirt has a "brief" instead of compression shorts. Looks very comfortable and I'm really looking forward to trying it out!

SkirtSports.com makes an awesome running skirt. I love it..atalantaathleticwear makes an another awesome running skirt. These are my two favorites that I switch off every other day. I also have a Moving Comfort Skirt which I'll wear on occasion, but the boy shorts underneath are too short for long running- due to chaffing.

I also have a skirt from runningskirts.com that I like but unfortunately, it's a wee bit tight. I'm going to get another one to give it a proper go!
I have one from Target, believe it or not, which I love! It was super affordable and very comfy. Not quite sure how well it's going to hold up though because I haven't had it for very long.

This is sooo fantastic! I am going to check out the Target one today- and then try some others on this weekend. The runningskirts.com ones look great- just don't know if the briefs are my thing. We shall see.

You all rock!!! Thanks so much!

I second the runningskirts.com skirts. Love them! They are having a half-off sale right now...they are oh-so comfy and so cute too...

Another vote here for the running skirts at Target. They're relatively inexpensive (compared to skirts you can buy online) and not only are they fully functional (with the compression shorts and back zippered pocket), they're uber sassy. Because, you know... at mile 24 of a marathon, all I care about is looking uber sassy. :-P

Target has some really cute ones right now and they are not expensive. I love it!

Ang said...

Cheryl, thanks for letting me know about the sale. I can't pass up a bargain and mine is on it's way too.

Erin, do you have 27 of the skirts with briefs or the ones with compression shorts. I'm nervous about the briefs. But I guess it's too late now. :) I'm excited to try it.
