Great skirt for running. The elastic leg openings keep them right where you want them. The inner shorts are also super comfortable and breathable. I do wish they were a tad longer though. I bought a large and am a size 12 at 5'6" and 160-165lbs. I should have bought a medium because the skirt does slide down some until I start sweating and then it stays put. I also wish that the inner shorts were a darker color.

Reading the reviews I was skeptical to buy these. Im 52 and have some natural flabby areas for my age. Im somewhat active, but not anything close to a 'hard body' type, nor am I anything close to a commited athlete. I thought I'd try a skort this year. Along with the Glycerin tank tops, this skort is amazing! The skort deletes the bunching effect I get from shorts usually at the inner top of my thighs; and, the waistband elliminates all but the slightest sign of a muffin top.
I usually spend my Summers in loose tops over long shorts, which makes me look shorter and dumpier. This skirt is so cute and comfortable. As far as Im concerned, its perfect and effective in every way. If you are an older woman, or have a lot of cellulite they may not be right for you; but, if you normally see cellulite no matter what you wear, you will love this skort too!
Im 5'5", 145lbs, and the large is perfect. Brooks seems to have taken an average build womens concerns into consideration when designing this line of activewear, and Im very grateful for it. Ive almost aquired an entire collection of Brooks Activewear, and I havent been disappointed in their products yet.
Thanks Sierra Trading Post for giving me access to a wonderful product line, that fits into my tight budget! You're awesome too! :D

I love these skirts. I have ordered two so far. The shorts have the nice sticky elastic around the leg so they don't ride up. The material is really breathable and comfortable. The skirt is on the short side (I'm a little over 5 feet), but I personally think its the best length for running. I am very happy with my purchases and will being getting more colors in the future.

This is a really attractive and functional running skort. The side slit and pleats add some visual interest, and the skort is light and doesn't constrict as you run. As others have said, the pocket is too small to hold much--it won't hold a phone, but it will hold gel, a car key, and a driver's license.

I did not see in the description or other reviews that the color of the inner shorts is a very light blue (matches the waist band). They are super see-through and mesh-like so if the skirt blows up you are going to show the world everything. The shorts alone are the most unattractive thing I've ever had on so I hope the skirt stays down. I was thinking the shorts would be black which would have made this skort perfect. I wear a size 8 and the Medium fit perfectly.
