B.O.A. Running Skirt Product Review & Giveaway

While wandering around a marathon expo earlier this year, I came across some fantastic running skirts that I had never seen before. They had some awesome prints, were a little longer in length and seemed not to fit and snug as the others. We were on a tight budget at the time, so I wasn't shopping. Months later, I browsed the internet and found them ... B.O.A. (HERE). Take a look ... you'll be pleased! .... OK, I'll wait ....



The Fit Skorts (HERE) come in plain colors for $45 or some fantastic prints for $47. They come in sizes XS to XL. They are available in eighteen fun prints, to express your style out on the course. I chose the Poseidon print. I typically wear a medium and was sent a size medium. It felt comfortable, but may run a little large, as it shifted slightly during my run. However, I have lost seventeen pounds in seven weeks and that could be a slight factor, too!!

"Sensor" 88% Polyester / 12% Spandex for outer body fabric AND compression brief!
3" vented panesl on side body for comfortable range of motion
Wide assortment of custom print patterns to choose from
Compression brief has gusseted crotch and anti-microbial insert
Wide, comfortable waistband with slotted entry for MP3 player
Reflective logo on left front hem

The fabric was comfortable and the fit was awesome, awesome, awesome!! If you've never tried a running skirt before, this would be a great one to try. It was comfortable. I loved that the skirt was a bit longer than other running skirts out there on the market. I have more "muscular" legs than some of you tiny little running gals out there. I like to cover up my thighs when I can, and this worked perfectly. My only gripe is that there isn't an inner or outer pocket for gel, keys, etc. The waistband was also very comfortable, as was the compression brief.

These would be fantastic for you ladies running the Disney Princess Half Marathon next month!!!! (Note: I'm sporting the skirt with my Disney Princess Half Marathon top from last year, ladies!)

I am even told that they are even coming out with a pink animal print that matches my blog ... exactly ... sweet ... can't wait!!
