Disclaimer #1: My husband was hyped up on three cups of coffee when he snapped these pictures with my iPhone. If you notice any blur, shaking or otherwise strangeness, we’ll just blame it on the caffeine.
I’ve done something wild and crazy. I’ve ventured out of my comfort zone and tried something new.
I bought a running skirt! Yes, a skirt.
I have seen them around and I’ve secretly longed to have one, but been afraid.
First of all, I’m self-conscious of my legs. I’m not just a white girl. I’m a WHITE girl. ::snort::
Secondly, I have chafing issues with my inner thighs. I had no idea how ladies wore running skirts without their inner thighs rubbing against one another. Did only women who don’t have that issue wear running skirts?
They have a note under the description of the skirt that some of the “built-in no-creep shorties” with certain prints run tighter. Right now, I’m wearing a size 12 across the board – dresses, skirts, jeans, etc. I decided to go ahead and purchase the large, which is a size 12/14, even though I thought it would be a little tight. I’m hoping the pounds and inches continue on their downward spiral, so I wanted to make sure I would get my money’s worth out of the skirt ~ even if that meant starting out with it being a bit snug.
The shorties are definitely snug. They aren’t made of the same material as my running capris, so there isn’t as much stretch and give. I felt like I had to work to get them in the perfect position, but once I had them on they felt great. Just snug.
Did I mention snug already? ::snort::
Now, the skirt itself is not snug at all. It fits perfectly.
It’s made a full inch longer in the back to ensure coverage. I like that. Some girls have big butts. I won’t name names. ::cough Moi cough::
I was a little nervous it would be too short for this prudish chick, but I’m happy with the length. I felt comfortable the entire time I was running. I never felt “exposed” . . . Ha! It was weird for me to see more of my legs while I was running.
I kept looking down and thinking, “Wow! Those white things are my legs . . . do I spy a little muscle there? Underneath the flapping skin?”
The shorties stayed put throughout my run and there was absolutely no chafing.
Overall, I would say it’s a winner!
I ended up buying my skirt through Amazon. It was about five dollars cheaper and I was able to get free shipping.
