Why I am obsessed with Skirt Sports Running Skirts + A Discount!

by Nellie


Running skirts are one of the best things to ever happen to fitness fashion. It took me long enough to discover the phenomenon but once I got my first skirt from Skirt Sports, I pretty much knew I was a goner.

I am SO excited to be Skirt Sports Ambassador, not only because the styles are completely awesome but because it’s a product and clothing line, that I absolutely believe in.

Short shorts were never comfortable and would always ride up and look crazy because of all the junk in my trunk (and I say this lovingly). I’ve seen women on the course with gorgeous skirts but I really didn’t think I could be apart of the Skirt Sports tribe because my hips and bum would likely make the skirt look…weird.

My First Skirt

My first official skirt I wore to the Brooklyn Half Marathon earlier this year. It is a beautiful fiery red and white piece that felt perfect when I tried it on. This particular skirt comes with built in shorts that have a lining around the bottom of them that help them not to rise when you are running.


Lioness Skirt

The shorts did not move for the entire 13.1 miles (and the afterparty too!) as a matter of fact, I got so many compliments on the skirt, before and after—It was also pretty hot out and it was nice to not have anything on my legs!

More than just Skirts

The options are endless when it comes to Skirt Sports. They have capris, tops, skirts, skirts with shorts, skirts with leggings, skirts with nothing at all—all with the best patterns and colors. Here I have on a cute white tee and these adorable vibrant capris that I can match with on a ton of tops in my workout wardrobe!

Pockets For Days

My favorite and most useful feature is the huge pockets on both legs of the inner shorts. I can fit my iPhone6 WITH my Otter Box comfortably and not have to worry about stuffing it in my bra. 🙂 It’s also a great place to store gels and other snacks–but I recommend you keep keys and other important stuff in zipped pockets.

I have always heard great things about these but I have yet to buy one. I have two skirts (one from Athelta and the other is Under Armour) but I definitely prefer shorts to skirts. Although, I have to say that I’m a sucker for pockets so I may just have to try these…in the spring 🙂
You look GREAT in them BTW!

As a fellow ambassador, you know I agree with you! Skirt Sports had me at their pockets and kept me with their continued innovations, variety of styles and cute prints!

Heck yeah! I Love running skirts. Scarlet wears a skort to play soccer and looks so cute.
The local college sporting teams sometimes wear running skirts.

I loved reading about your first skirt! So fun and so glad we are “skirt sisters”:). I have to order another pair of Redemption Capris STAT!
