I am not a runner who likes every running skirt. This one is spot on. Most compression shorts ride up underneath the skirt. This one finally just has the little panties like running shorts, so they can't ride up, or pinch your thighs. Maybe that's not the best for sitting down for a cup of coffee with the running group, and not somthing that can transition to the gym if your going to lay down at the bench press. Be sure you are sitting very lady-like. However, we're talking about running, and it is perfect if you don't like messing around with your clothes while you run. It's light and airy with venting, so ideal for a long or short run on a hot day. The little pocket in back is just enough for a key and energy gel, but it has a width that won't force you to cram everything in and make it look like you have a large bump in your rear. The slits are flattering, and prevent the fabric from getting bunched up between your legs. I picked this one for the color (needed red white and blue outfit for a short 4th of july race with the kids) without much expectation, but I think this is going to be one of my favorites for training and racing!

Long slits, little panties, no bunching!
I am a 190lb. 5'9" 32 yr old woman training for my first half marathon. No matter what running shorts I wear, with inner thighs like mine, there is always some degree of fabric riding up between my legs.
This skirt banished that problem for me! This skirt is basically two flaps which overlay at the sides to provide a very wide range of motion with no bunching or sticking. The skirt just flutters cutely as you run and lets cooling air in, without gaping too much.
There don't have compression shorts, but a pair of elastic panties. Unexpectedly, the front coverage of these panties is actually fuller than in the rear. More like "hipsters" or a wide thong. I thought the lack of brief-like coverage on my butt would annoy me, but I didn't notice it at all. Might have to rethink my everyday underwear cut!
All in all these are very flattering and have improved my confidence and stride consistency. Give em a try.
Best skirt I've found
I've bought several running skirts and they have all been uncomfortable. The shorts always ride up and I do NOT have large thighs. This is the best running skirt I've found. My only complaint is that they run very small, or at least the brief was way too tight. I always wear a small or even an extra small (depending on my weight fluctuation) in the Nike running shorts. I'm 5'7" and weigh about 126 and the briefs are just too small. A medium would have worked better.
