I know, I know. I was very skeptical about the practicality and look of workout skirts when I first learned about them. Can I actually run long distances in a skirt? Can I do intense workouts or even stretch in a skirt? More importantly, will I look silly wearing one? Those were all questions that ran through my head before I invested. Now, I’m a believer because I know they are a modest and fully functional alternative to the standard sportswear we’re accustomed to. Read on to learn my top 3 reasons you should invest in a workout skirt, particularly this dark heather gray workout skirt from Snoga.
REASON #1: IT’S COMFORTABLE
This is the ultimate reason I love this workout skirt. Despite having more layers than 90% of workout skirts or leggings, this Snoga is super comfortable – so much so that I often forget there is skirted portion (even I shot the above photos in 80-degree temps).
REASON # 2: IT’S CUTE.
For modest activewear, Snoga makes some of the cutest workout skirts I’ve seen yet. I was also pleasantly surprised with how flattering my Snoga is. It may be comprised of layers of poly/spandex performance fabric (with wicking properties!), but it doesn’t feel or look dowdy.
REASON #3: IT HAS TRULY MODEST COVERAGE
’ll be honest. When I wear activewear that isn’t modest, I usually spend too much time either thinking about a) how self-conscious and uncomfortable I am in tight or revealing clothing, or b) how to highlight the best-looking parts of my body. I’m certainly not thinking about how to maximize my workout for optimal results. If you’re like me, then a skirt like this will be a major relief. You can be comfortable, confident, and modest – better yet, you can actually focus on your workout rather than your body.
Now that I’ve outlined some of the highlights of the Snoga workout skirt (and by extension, workout skirts in general), I must admit there is one area for improvement:
I wish Snoga carried petite sizes. While my Snoga had a surprisingly nice fit, it would’ve fit even better if it was made with petite sizing in mind. I had to tuck at least two inches in the hems of the leggings because they were too long, and the length of the skirt was several inches too long for my 5’3 frame.
