Why We Built The Olympus Skort

We made the Olympus Skort as technical and thrilling as the peak from which it draws its name. Built from performance-friendly fabrics with comfort and stretch, you can take your border collie for a run or go hiking with friends, and at the end of the day it's still stylish enough for grabbing a bite at the brewery.

  • Technical skort for adventurous trail pursuits
  • Stretch fabric offers soft comfort and wicking performance
  • Durable nylon handles well on trails and at the crag
  • Semi-fitted runs small, sizing up is recommended
  • Wide waistband provides active coverage and a secure fit
  • Internal pocket ideal for a phone, zip stash ideal for keys or cash
  • Tulip-vented skirt offers plenty of style for more casual outings

Great Fit but Disappointing Shorts

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Large

I was so excited for this product based on the reviews but was so disappointed when wearing for the first time, the compression shorts underneath started fraying and pilling badly; one wear on a short bike commute into work and the skort looks like it had been worn consistently for a year. The edge of the short is unfinished and could benefit from a seam in my opinion.

Will be returning and hope it was just an odd one out. I also found the Large to be a little on the bigger side and would have found a Medium at a better fit (29cm waist, typically size 8-10 for reference).

Am I the odd woman out?

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: L

So from the reviews saying that this skirt runs small, I ordered a size up and got a large instead of my usual medium. Very comfortable fit, the waistband is stretchy, and honestly I think I can go a size down because it doesn’t feel tight at all. Maybe this item has inconsistent sizing? Really debating returning for a medium or should I just stick to what I have?

One of my Favorites!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I am in love with this skort! It is so cute, so flattering, and so fun. This skort is great for any summer activity whether that's hiking, rafting, tennis, or picnics at the park. Its definitely a shorter athletic skirt, but I find it so versatile. The only downside is that the inner short seems to ride up pretty easily when sitting, but thats not the biggest deal. I have the orange color and it so fun and bright, I love it. Seems like they have updated their sizing to be more true to size compared to last season. I am 5'2 and 125lbs and the small fit me great! I am tempted to snag this in another color now!

These are just what I needed for the Summer. Love them! Wear several times a month.

Must be a mistake

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XS

This skirt is absurdly small. I order an extra small, as that is what I wear in every other skort I have. I couldn't get it past mid thigh. I'm 5'6", 118 lbs with a slim athletic build. The waist band measures 11" across, so 22" unstretched. And it doesn't stretch, as the flatlock stitching at the waist prevents any stretch at all. I have attached a picture of this skirt compared to another that I have in an extra small, for comparison. It is equally absuredly small compared to my other two skorts, as well. I offered the skirt to my 12 year old daughter, who is 5'1" and 78lbs, very slender. It was too tight on her also. It would be a beautiful product if it was sized more accurately, but I think this one needs a complete do-over. And I will have to pay the return shipping cost on a product that seems to be a complete misjudgment by the design team.

Comfortable & Cute!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: SMALL

I'm 5'3, 125 lb, bought the Small in both blue & black. Love them both, true to size! If you're in between sizes like the other review says go up. The shorts part have a hidden phone size pocket & the skort itself has one on the back. Very comfortable breathable & quick drying. I have a slight muffin top, this hides it/ it holds it well. Not that anyone ever needs to hide a muffin top because everybody's beautiful!

Wonderful

Who knew I'd be buying a skort after elementary school, but here we are... I will be living in this, it's absolutely wonderful. Lightweight, flattering, and a pocket big enough to fit a phone. Sold

If you're between sizes, order up (5'9" 135 lbs and a M fits great)

Cute Versatile Skort

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: small

I gave this as a gift to my younger sister who was getting into paddleboarding along with other sports. She is a fashionable gal and I thought it would be perfect. She Loves it! She traditionally wears xs or size 0-2, and in this skort we purchased the S, and it fit her very well. It is very versatile because of the moisture-wicking fabric used. She wore it while hiking and reported it was flexible and easy to go up and down Mnt Olympus in! We also went on a river rafting trip recently, and she wore this skort the entire time on the river. It dried well, and kept her warm in the cold water. We would recommend this cute outdoor option to any cute gal out there!

Cute Versatile Skort

Great quality, so-so fit

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XS

I love the fabric, length, cut, and quality of this skirt, but unfortunately the fit wasn’t there for me. I have a slender/athletic build and am usually in between a XS and S. I purchased both sizes here; the XS was way too small to even pull on, and the S fit great in the waist but was snug enough around the hips for the skirt layer to ride up and pucker on either side. I ended up (sadly) sending both back. I didn’t try a M, but I have a feeling the waist would have been too big based on the fit of the S. All that said, I’d recommend giving this skirt a try to see if it works for you; it’s well made and seems very versatile!

Runs Small

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: M

Runs very small, I'll be returning and maybe ordering a larger size.

The Season of the Skort

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

I haven't owned a skort in YEARS, but this is a game changer. This skort is super stretchy and comfortable–you'll never want to take it off. Wear it for light activity or just around the house. Fits true to size but is definitely a snug fit.

No stretch in waistband

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Small

There’s no stretch in the waistband. Usually I’m between a small and medium. I have a 27.5 waist and I couldn’t get this skirt up over my hips. I would recommend sizing up.

That being said, the skort is really cute and great material. Thick waistband to hide all imperfections and help suck you in.
