MaryAnn B.: "I'm a 63-year-old retired PE/Health teacher. I coached several sports, including Track and Cross Country. I taught Aerobics and ran mountain trails for so many years, but finally I had to slow down. So now I'm a personal trainer, playing league tennis (four teams this year) and teaching Water Fitness at a local gym. I wear your Lotta Breeze Capri for teaching because the little pocket holds my mic receiver and the skirt nicely covers my almost 64 year old butt! On chilly tennis days, I love this attire as the ball pocket is perfect for the tennis ball and the capri length adds a bit of warmth. When I'm 64, in a couple of months, I'll still be wearing my Skirt Sports Lotta Breeze Capri!
Anonymous: "I have always believed there are only 2 reasons to run:
1. Something is chasing you
2. You are chasing something
But, 7 years ago, I decided I had to make a change in my life and I started running ... again. I didn't like it. OK, I hated it. One of the reasons I hated it was because I hated the clothes. The shorts were too short. My thighs chafed. If I wore spandex shorts, the bulge above the knee was unsightly. There was never enough coverage for the backside. Then I found Skirt Sports. I could cover up with the Lotta Breeze Capri. I was comfortable and I could wear cute outfits for running....Seventy pounds ... and a few sizes ... later, I'm still running. Some people might think I have a Skirt Sports "problem." I think the only problem is that I can still find room for more in my closet.
I have found another reason to run:
3. The opportunity to wear cute running outfits"
Robyn P.: "In 2011 I got pregnant, and my skirts were my go-to outfits most days of the week throughout my pregnancy. I also got hooked on Nicole's blog, as we were preggers at the same time, and she and other readers offered all kind of great advise along the way - thank you! Another baby in 2013, and the body has taken a beating, but my skirts have given me the confidence to get back out there and run, as they are flattering where they need to be, plus they are cute and comfy :-).
I am sure my husband curses every time you come out with a new style or new fabric design (I HAD to get a pair of capris in the new snake skin print, even though I already have 4 pairs"
Erin A.: "I can’t live without the Gym Girl Ultra, or the Lotta Breeze Capri’s! I would say I’ve worn one or the other in every race since I can remember, running, mud runs, duathlons, you name it I've worn a skirt in all of them. It’s all about the pockets! Yes, you can carry gels if necessary, as well as your cellphone, or IPod, plus a car key. To me these are perfect, and no other company compares."
Julie S.: "I use an insulin pump to manage Type 1 diabetes. I had always fussed with finding a way to wear it during exercise where it wouldn't get in the way or fall. I searched all kinds of accessories and clothing options. When I finally stumbled upon Skirt Sports I was so excited. The pockets on the thighs are a perfect place to keep my pump secure and out of the way. I use shorties under my skirts now, keeping my pump in place. I have two lotta breeze Capri skirts that I frequently receive compliments on. A friend of mine said, "these have revolutionized your wardrobe!" I've even referred my endocrinologist to your site so she can tell other patients about your products."
Jennifer P.: "Dear Maker of extremely cute and comfortable skirts,
The day I found your lotta breeze skirt/capri I was hooked ( also a fan of the tough girl set for winter months)! As a Physical Education teacher, I love to dress comfy (others are very jealous) but I also want to look stylish. Well, my slick suit, warm up days are over! I want cute and fun!
I teach at a very large elementary school (1100 kiddos) and am the only female PE teacher. My students have always noticed what I am wearing....Every time I wear a Skirt Sports outfit, kids and colleague's are always complimenting on how "cute" I look. I am young at heart!
I have noticed that the girls will come dressed for PE in their cute skorts and tights. They make sure to dress the part for a PE day.
As we all know, when we feel like we look good, our day, attitudes and EVERYTHING is just better.
Thanks for making such fun clothing that I can wear to work and feel confident in. Please continue making these awesome patterns for many years to come. I have a "lotta" teaching years ahead of me and I need to be dressed in fun clothing!"
Aleasha L. (Ambassador/blogger): "The lines on the Redemption Capri accent curves in a positive way. There is NO thunder and lightning strikes (referring to my thighs!) other than compliments. And of course, my biggest pet peeve is chaffing which the Redemption Capri prevents.
Though design is not just what it looks like when referring to clothes, looks are always a plus. Though design is not just what it feels like, if it's comfortable and cute, that too is a bonus! Design is how it works, the redemption capri do not chafe and the wicking material works! So they are a definite recommend!" Read Aleasha's full review here.
Sami B. (Ambassador/blogger): "The Redemption Capri is designed to help you tackle any workout in comfort and style with lightly compressive fabric that hugs your muscles and keeps them fresh from warm-up to cool-down. Every part of the capri flatters your figure, from the waste band to the curving lines." Read Sami's full review here.
Erika H. (Ambassador/blogger): "Here’s what I like about it:
The skirt is long enough to comfortably cover my rear (13? front, 14? back)
Mesh semi-compression capri hits just below the knee (the mesh is warm enough, but also comfortable on days when you should be wearing shorts)
A pocket on each thigh that comfortably holds my cell phone and gu
