There are two camps in ladies fitness apparel: those who prefer shorts, and others who prefer skirts! What side we are on? Both! By marrying the two to create the unconquerable, invincible skort, we not only get the best of both worlds, we get a little more as well. Athletic Works women's core active jersey-knit skort comes with built-in shorts made out of a poly-spandex blend that will keep your legs from rubbing together, without which often results in painful chafing. You can also feel secure knowing that no matter how strenuous the exercise, the skort will remain in place (it won't ride up!). The fabric is breathable, featuring Dri-Works Wicking Technology. As you perspire, it allows your skin to breathe while simultaneously absorbing the moisture, keeping you dry and comfortable. The reflective logo on the back (Dri-Works) will help keep you visible in low-light conditions. There is also an inseam pocket in the back of the waistband where you can carry the bare essentials (phone, credit cards). An elastic waistband with drawcord helps you adjust fit as needed. A slit on both sides of the skirt also gives you a greater range of motion while also adding a touch of femininity. Athletic Works Women's Core Active Dri-Works Skorts is the clear winner for both camps!

Danskin Wins Again!
I've been purchasing Danskin products for years...back in my 30's for high impact aerobic dance and still now that I'm a senior doing a little less active forms of exercise. I definitely love and trust Danskin products. Their items hold up beautifully for years and always make you look good. This Danskin Now skort is a delightful step up from a regular skort. This garment has both the full short underneath and a full skirt portion on top, as opposed to routine skorts that are essentially a pair of shorts with a fabric panel that resembles a skirt covering most of the area around the shorts, but flaps open and blows around where not completely covered.
You get the best of both worlds in this neat little skort. The outer skirt panel of cotton jersey-knit is 90% cotton and 10% spandex. The inner short is 90% polyester and 10% spandex. This inner short uses moisture-wicking technology that Danskin calls Dri-More. This inner short has a more silky feeling to it that is breathable and not only helps to wick perspiration away and dry quickly, but it will prevent your upper legs from rubbing together and chafing as can happen during strenuous activities. The inner short also has flat seams which further help not to rub against moist skin. When wearing this skort, there is no need to apply anti-chafing cream to the the inside of your upper legs. This skort features an extra-wide elastic waistband with a working drawstring on the inside front. The waistband is 2 3/4” wide, which is important to me. There is nothing worse than a thin waistband digging into your abdomen...especially when you might be doing activities that cause you to perspire...further causing a greater chance of chafing. Danskin's nice wide waistband prevents the skort from riding up and is also great for holding in the tummy or for securely tucking in a top. I have this skort in black soot size medium. My skort measures 14 5/8” from the top of the waistband to the bottom of the skirt portion. The top of the waistband hits me about 1” below my belly button. This might vary a little depending on the length of your rise. The shorts underneath the skort are approximately 2” shorter than the length of the skort. Another nice feature is a slit measuring 3.75” on each side seam of the skirt portion of the skort to provider a greater range of motion. One special feature of this well-designed skort is that the waistband inside the back of the skort features a hidden 5” x 2 3/8” stretchy pocket where you can stash away your keys and cash...or even a smaller size cell phone. The “pocket” has a stretchy top flap that covers the bottom portion of the pocket to keep your items secure. Danskin thought of everything! As if that wasn't enough, Danskin has added a reflective Danskin logo on the front top left of the skort and a reflective “Dri More” logo on the top back right of the skort in case you are outside in low-light conditions. This item has a tag-free label on the back waistband, which I always appreciate to further reduce irritation. The laundry instructions indicate to wash this garment in cold with similar colors and to tumble-dry low without using fabric softener. No ironing needed. I have laundered this item once so far. There was no pilling or shrinkage. My skort came out as good as new. This item was made in El Salvador. This is a very packable item. It would roll right up into very little space in your suitcase. I am using this item to play tennis in, but I plan to buy a couple more maybe in a dark color, white, and a fun color to be my go-to pieces for casual wear on summer vacation. Personally, I think this skort could be used as a swimsuit bottom in a pinch. To me, purchasing this skort is a no brainer at less than $12! It would be great for ladies of any age.Kitteagirl
Great Quality and Perfect Fit
The Danskin Now Women's Core Active Dri-More Skort is comfortable, fits perfectly and is light breathable during long walks. I ordered mine in navy and washed it upon receipt to check for colorfast and shrinkage etc. It washes perfectly and the color remained strong. I'm a long distance walker and always on the lookout for clothes that are breathable and won't cause rubbing on mile 6 or 7 - a problem I've dealt with in the past. These were perfect and we've already had temps in the 90s! Recommend Danskin Now Women's Core Active Dri-More Skort for anyone looking for quality, affordable work out wear or even good wear abouts.tkmcnair
