To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have purchased this in both medium and small. The Medium I purchased about a year ago and the small recently. First I want to talk about fit. I am 5’6”. When I purchased the Medium, i was about 145 lbs. I tend to gain it all over as apposed to in the hips or waist. The medium was snug at the time. The waist was a tad too snug for me. It also fell about an inch above my belly button which I can’t stand. I folded the waist over and had it sit on my hip bones. This made it much more comfortable for me. I noticed that the way the shorts behaved changed on my body composition. When i first got them I was light on muscle and my legs were a bit giggly. I found that when my legs were flabby the shorts liked to scoot up and would not stay down. As I gained muscle and they firmed up the legs started staying where they should be. I have found this to be true of any spandex type of short at this length. Those who have the rolling/sliding issue either need to firm up or find a short that has a 5 inch inseam to be happy.
After losing weight i noticed that the waist was more comfortable but the shorts gave a lot less compression in the hips and thighs. I am now 128 lbs and my waist is 31inches and my hips are 37inches. I ordered a small to accommodate my new size and they fit nicely as compression running shorts should. The waist is still too tall for my liking. I wish they had a low rise option. They have held up well with washing and hang to dry. The skirt length is perfect to me. The short inseam is 3 inches and stretches to about 4 inches when worn. The skirt falls at the edge of the shorts (almost feels shorter but you can’t see the shorts) which is perfect.
I love these so much I wear them every day. The side pockets are big enough and stretch fantastically to safely accommodate my large cellphone (S8+ with room) car keys, small wallet and i could hold more if I choose to use the zippered portion in the back but since i fold them down, that pocket is pretty useless to me. I can go out purse free and have my hands free. Greatest thing ever! I love the medium for every day and lounging around the house but at this point I need the small for running and the extra compression.
I just received this and wore it on a 6 mi. run this morning. It was very cool and comfortable with a thong underneath. I own several athletic skorts and this has better compression in the shorts than most. I followed the size chart and ordered the medium being 5'7" 36" hips and somewhat athletic build. It fits great and the length is the same on me as the model in the pictures. You really need to know your measurements when ordering. I usually wear a large in compression shorts or 2 in 1 shorts and I've found skorts to run big on me in the same size. I love a skort with functional pockets so I have a place to put keys especially if I want to run in just my sports bra so I don't have to put the keys in the bra - I appreciated that this morning in the heat and humidity. It's also cute and sexy and I will be ordering another.
Trust the size chart and order your hip size. I think it runs a little small, so if in doubt order up, unless you want it super skin tight. Durable fabric, 3 nice pockets, shorts underneath have some "leg" to them and aren't too short, which is great. Can wear on errands and to work out!
Size recommendations are true, got this in an XL - would normally buy in Large. Nice fit - not too short, no puckering, etc. Nice mesh stretchy side pocket on shorts component. Note: instructs not to put in clothes dryer.
I'm 50 and I absolutely love this skort. I know some reviews said they thought skort runs small so I went up a size to a M. I ended up ordering a small. Order your regular size. Perfect for without being too tight or shorts riding up.
Love the skirt and fits perfectly. I ordered "S", am 5' 81/2" and weigh 125. THE PROBLEM IS THAT IS FROM CHINA AND I TRY NOT TO PURCHASE PRODUCTS FROM THAT COUNTRY. It is not our political climate but my anger over American companies for moving over to China and selling our America.
I bought this to wear while running, and it is so comfortable. The pockets are nice and deep and comfortably hold my phone and keys. Based on other reviews I read, I ordered a size based on my hip size instead of waist and glad I did. This fit is perfect. I’m 5’10’’ and struggle to find shorts/skirts long enough but this is a great length.
This skort fits great--my tummy pokes out, so I often have an issue with bottoms slipping down, esp. if they have a banded elastic waist.. Wore these all day, did lots of walking and biking with no slippage. Very comfortable!
love this skort. bought in in black and had to wait till small was available in grey. wish they made in white. fits true to size. skort is perfect, 2 pockets on legs ( i put phone and keys in one and mask and sunglasses in other), one small pocket in front ( key or tissue ) and one zip pocket in back ( not too deep either , credit card , id , etc ) plus a hole for cell phone cord ear plugs.
The fabric on the skirt is great quality, thick, stretchy and just as I hoped! The shorts are a tad restrictive and I would recommend you size up to make sure you have a comfortable fit! I ordered every color in the larger size and they’re better. The side pockets are fantastic, deep enough to fit my on xr comfortably knowing it won’t fall out!
