Brooks Infiniti Skort

Brooks has a slogan of "Run Happy" and this skort is one that makes me Walk Happy. I love the lightweight yet flattering fabric, perfect for warm-to-hot weather. The outer skirt is 10 inches long, with lightweight liner shorts that are 3.5 inches long. Both layers wick away moisture to keep you cool. The liner shorts are lightly supportive and have bonded seams to reduce the risk of chafing. The 3-inch wide waistband gives you a flattering fit with power spandex for tummy control. Notches at the side of the skirt allow for leg motion, and are trimmed with contrasting and reflective fabric. There are two pockets. One is a drop-in pocket on the back of the waistband, and one is a tab-closed pocket on one thigh of the liner shorts. Both are big enough to hold my iPhone, but are listed as ID-sized. They come in sizes XS to XL. I love the royal blue color, and they also have a bright pink as well as the basic black. Buy from Amazon »

This combo will prevent chafing with an inner bike short and an outer tennis skirt. Feel feminine and fresh as the fabric wicks away moisture and prevents chafing. The skirt is slit at each side for easy motion. I found the skirt fabric in front to be annoying; I prefer shorts. On the other hand, the skirt helps hide your lumps and bulges, so it may give you more confidence when exercising in public. Skirt length 16 inches, short inseam 5.5 inches. Available in plus sizes XL to 6X.
