What’s so great about a Skort?

Well, in short (pun intended), a Women’s Fitness Skort provides the best of both worlds – when the issue is skirt vs. shorts. Of course, many women who love exercise and active lifestyles love the freedom of movement a skirt can provide. And like many things in life (and apparel), there can be a downside or two. A main complaint is chafing during active workouts and a lack of comfortable coverage.

When it comes to a pair of shorts, users enjoy the simplicity of this option. But active movement may be restricted in many cases. That does not help you win that tennis match when you can’t easily leap across the court! But a Skort from Skirt Sports provides the perfect hybrid of all the best features of skirts and shorts! No need to choose when you have a beautiful, well-made Skort. Also, Skorts have a cuteness factor you won’t get with those old shorts. Really like shorts and want something different? Check these out!

Built-In Shorties!

An awesome Skort is designed with a soft, breathable, chafe-free “shortie” underneath. Carefully crafted for durability and exceptional comfort, this built-in shortie eliminates the dreaded chafing and helps even the most modest athlete move freely without worry!

Beautiful, On-Trend Patterns that Reflect Your Style

As the athleisure market has developed and grown immensely in the last few years – women have learned one thing in particular. Figure-friendly, functional athletic apparel does not have to be dowdy and boring as in days past. Absolutely not! You’ll make a fashion statement in no time when you visit Skirt Sports online.
