I was sooo excited for these. But once I got them I hated them. The shorts underneath are longer than the front of the skirt. The shorts also have a large elastic band in the bottom that has no stretch which makes them really tight and not attractive to wear. Sent them back

just got this yesterday and wore it on a 3-mile run today. i am not a petite girl, weighing in at a little over 190# and 5'10" tall. just started running a few months ago, so i am not as "toned" as those who have been running longer. that said, i love running skirts and prefer them to shorts. i like the inner shorts to be at least 7"long and to have some sort of non-slip elastic on the bottoms. i also need a pocket in the back for a cellphone (an old style flip phone) that i must carry with me for work 24/7. these fit all my requirements nicely. i ordered the XL and there is plenty of room, i could have perhaps fit in to a L even. the phone was not a problem, zipped right in there and it is not one of the flat flip phones. the elastic is taut on the bottoms, a little different from the non-slip silicone stuff i am used to in some of my other shorts, but it was not uncomfortable. yes, it is very close fitting around the thigh, but not bothersome for me in the least. the skirt is a bit shorter than some of my other running skirts, but no shorter than a pair of running shorts would be. would i buy another one? you betcha...

Liked the look of this run skort but was disappointed with the quality and fit. 1.) the orange is more like a neon orange, not a huge deal, still looks good 2.) there is a long zip pocket in the back waist...nice except it's so long and skinny that it is kind of pointless...too small for anything but a key or maybe a smooshed goo packet, smaller would have worked the same with less bulk 3.) and this is the dealbreaker for me, the elastic bands on the bottom of the inner shorts/briefs is tight and uncomfortable. My legs aren't pure muscle but they are moderately toned, I felt the elastic was tight and unattractive. 4.) The overal look was just kind of dumpy to me, maybe after wear or wash it hangs better. Overall I prefer the running skirts by Sugoi and other brands where the inner short is full stretch material and not just the grippy bottom band.
