Product Reviews
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very tough to get on I love everything about this skort - fabric, feel, color - and really, really wanted it to work, but it's very hard to get on. That sounds crazy, I know. Should be easy peasy to slip on a skort, right? But not in this case. I have very slim hips and had trouble pulling the skort over my hips and there's no give in the waistband to help. I can't imagine these fitting true to size for anyone who has even a hint of hips. Once you get past the over-the-hips struggle, they fit like a dream (really nice, really comfortable, really flattering) but who wants to struggle that much to get that to that point? Bummed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Size up! Great skort for narrow hip gals Absolutely SIZE UP on this one! I have 3 of these skorts from 2021 and just purchased another in June 2022. I have LOTS of OR clothing and have always worn a size small/ 6. Even though I have narrow hips, the small fits like an XS and I could barely get it on. The Medium fits perfectly. It is true the waist doesn't stretch so if you have larger hips or booty it might not work. It is not the easiest to get on. The black skort sz Med from 2022 fits identical to the black and purple sz Mediums from 2021. Super comfy and lightweight, I wear these all the time for anything. Hiking, teaching kids, yoga and more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed Feelings CONS: I hate having to do the Pillsbury doughboy shuffle to get it on. Based on my measurements and the fabric specs, I ordered the medium. I'm more athletic than curvy but trying to get the waistband over my thighs/butt/hips had me eyeing the Crisco in my pantry. It feels like 98% nylon and 2% spandex. PROS: Once the skort is on, I LOVE it and the versatility it provides. After wearing it last week: -9:30 am meeting with management, received compliments from them and coworkers. -*after lunch* pm building pallets in our oppressively hot and humid warehouse, didn't suffer from swampy lady bits and also didn't have to worry about being unladylike. -6:00ish pm sent my first V5 at the gym without summoning Satan, is this skort witchcraft or placebo? I'll keep wearing it but I'm not sure I'd recommend this to a friend or buy another before trying out skorts from other companies.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not stretchy enough I really wanted this skort to work because the length is great, but if you have any hips at all it's impossible to get the skort up to your waist (or past your knees). If you go up in size, then the undershorts and waist won't fit either. The waist itself has absolutely no stretch making it impossible to put on--this needs an elastic waist or a button and zipper closure to work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality Comfortable and functional. I'm a large but ordered XL and I'm happy I did. The fit is perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs some improvements I agree with the other comments -- this skort is on the small side. It does fit me (mine is a medium and I'm almost always medium across the board) but squeezing myself and my hips into this makes me feel fat (I'm not). If this were just a bit bigger and stretchier, I'd give it 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy for me! Wriggling is involved, but I wore these on 5 days of a 7 day (could have worn them on all) backpacking trip (summer in the Olympic peninsula) and loved them. I wrote the Elk on my trip and decided to get the light blue too when I got home. I do wear them around town too but they are my go-tos for hiking. I know that others dont' feel the same way but they work for my non-curvey, not extremely slender but yes petite frame (5'3, ~130 lbs, hips ~5 inches larger than my waist)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Active Skirt! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love being able to be cute and feminine when I'm active, and this skirt is just perfectly easy to wear. It feels really good on, moves very well, and always looks like I just put it on! Great active piece that will last a long time.
