by fromFlattering I really like the style of the skort, but the shorts under the skirt ride up as I'm walking which allows my legs to rub together and chaff. I have larger thighs which contributes the the shorts riding up, but still, it's uncomfortable and annoying. It would be perfect for me if the shorts part was spandex. I get compliments every time I wear it so of course I like it enough to keep, but probably won't be buying another.

by fromVery Cute and Flattering! I bought this skort to take on a cruise in a few months. It is absolutely perfect! It's so perfect that I want to wear this now! I might have to buy more. The fabric is great for being active - and for packing - no wrinkles! The style makes me feel "girly". It's very flattering to your figure - even at a size 12 or 14. IF I had to say one complaint it would be that ths shorts are a little too short - I wish they were longer - I am not one of those size 0 girls with no thighs. This is the reason for only 4 stars and not 5.

by fromAlmost perfect! The first weekend I wore these I didn't want to take them off. Wore them hiking all over up and down mountains, through lakes and rivers, and even the next day after a good rinsing, out shopping. The fit and style is perfect, and I often have trouble finding things that don't gap since I tend to be curvier on the bottom. That being said, for me, the reason I wear a skort is to have the flattering appearance of a skirt while keeping my legs from chafing, and this had one feature and and not the other.

by fromgood for petites I'm five feet tall, 37-29-38, and bought the size 6. It fits great in the waist and hips and I didn't even have to hem it!

by fromMy FAV piece, but dryer destroyed it! I bought this skirt for a trip to Florida and wore it basically every day for two weeks. I had other skirts, but this one fit so perfectly and was so comfortable for hours of walking that I didn't want to wear anything else. I have also worn it to work with a nice top and gotten several compliments on it. Tragedy struck last night when it came out of the dryer half melted, though! The clasp must have gotten stuck some where and despite the low dryer temp, completely melted a chunk of the skirt off!! Lesson learned - air dry when possible! I'm purchasing another, though, because its worth it.

by fromPerfect skirt for every possible use I bought this skort as a shorts alternative for a trip to Disney World. I'm so pleased with this purchase in every possible way. It's incredibly comfortable and very flattering. Nothing tight or binding or pinching or leaving red marks around your waist. It packs like a dream and comes out of the dryer perfectly ready to wear. It looked fine with t-shirts on vacation and I even wear it to work as a skirt with a dressier shirt! For theme park visiting in the summer, the moisture repellent features were another added benefit. I went on a wet ride and then just shook the beaded water droplets right off the skirt - nothing wet or clingy at all. My only very minor con is the lack of pockets. There is one back, zipped pocket and that's all. I'd like to have a small hip pocket.

by fromAwesome Skort Love this Royal Robbins skort ... I bought it in tan, green, and black and wish it came in more colours because I would scoop them up. Perfect for hiking, biking, chillin' with friends ... is casual but sharp. Price is good too.
