Running Skirts

If you’ve been in a gym lately, you surely must have noticed the hottest summer trend- athletic skirts! You may know it as a “tennis skirt”, a “skort”, or a “running skirt.” These days, they’re being donned by every lady in the gym world- teenagers with no hips, the lady who should pay rent and not a monthly fee to the club, older women with curves and even the “newbies” who bounce from machine to machine. The thing about these trendy skirts is that they make everyone look feminine, fashionable and fit! The athletic skirt is essentially compression shorts draped in cute athletic fabric. Wonderful combo! They help with chaffing for ladies with larger legs, they stay tight for awkward moves that reveal your lady parts and they securely hug the hamstrings during long runs. While doing this marvelous duty, they still look cute!

Here are some of my recent favorites!
