I was really excited to receive this skort, but it turned into disappointment as soon as I put it on. The skirt part is very light-weight, which would be great, except it was also very static-y. It static-clung and outlined every curve, line and crack (both in front and back). I did my best to smooth it out with my hands, maybe the static was a fluke it picked up during shipping. Smoothed out was just as bad, because it's cut in an unflattering A-line flair that just hung funny on me. The elastic-like band (it's not elastic, I don't know what it is) around the edge of the shorts liner was also just a bit tight. And that was just standing in it. I can only imagine how uncomfortable it would be as soon as I started running it. Sadly, it's going back.

Ah, I forgot to wear shorts today!

Nope. Just rockin' the Better Than Naked skort today. Phew, I was worried there for a sec!

But seriously, this thing rocks. It's incredibly cute and comfortable, it's light (hence

Sexy and Feminine

I really enjoy running in this! I like feeling feminine and pretty when sweating and working hard. I bought an extra small because I didn't like how big the small felt. I gave this four stars because I didn't feel as "naked" as the other products in this line. I sort of wish the under part was a bikini cut to help it breathe, so I pull it up that high when I run. I do loooove the pockets though! My phone stayed put my entire run. They did a good job designing this skirt!

Unanswered Question

Do the interior shorts have any type of elastic or treatment on the leg so they don't ride up?

Wore this skirt on a quick backpacking trip at Mt. Everett on the AT in Mass.

Wow... i'll keep it short and sweet... LOVE! Dries fast, breezy which helps on hot days, perfect length, awesome to hike in and love love love the pockets on the liner shorts. After camp is set up, i throw my phone in the pocket to go explore and take pics. The pocket seems pretty secure too because i've actually carried my iPhone 6 in it while hiking up and down hills, rocky terrain, etc. and it's stayed secured. I wanna get another one!
Originally I ordered a medium... got injured, was off my feet for a bit and gained a bit so ordered a large. The large is a bit big in the waist but it's very comfy in the thighs. I hate anything constricting and tight on my thighs so the large fits perfectly.
