I bought this skirt because it DID NOT have attached shorts!!! This skirt is light weight and shortless. Therefore I can easily wear my own choice of compression shorts underneath the skirt to keep me comfortable while running. This skirt allows me to dress modestly and comfortably by covering up my rear end wearing the compression shorts. Black goes with all the bright colors of shirts and shoes. The small is too small for me. The medium is a tad too loose. There is a gripping strip inside the waistband. However, sometimes the skirt does move around my waist the longer I run. The Nike swoosh will move from front to back even though I don't feel that happening. Love this skirt!
This skirt is made of a nice thin, easy fabric. However, much to my surprise, the skirt does not have a built-in brief and it is slightly shorter than the other Nike skirts I wear. It also has a thin silicone strip in the waistline to help keep it in place, but it rubbed on my skin and left a red mark after I was done playing tennis. All of my skirts are Nike and, unfortunately, this one was not what I had expected.
