Great so far...
January 12, 2010

I am glad that I listened to the other reviews and purchased a small. I am usually a S/M, and so I thought I might go up to medium. It would have been too big! I have only worn this around the house as it is winter here in MT. I really like the lightweight, but stretchy fabric. The pocket seems to be positioned a little weird, but I will see how it works out a little later. The only thing that I don't like about the skirt is that it doesn't look to flattering in the back. I would say that I have a regular sized booty, but the fabric does come up a bit in the back...

Super cute - runs big

Very cute, light weight skort. Runs quite big and with cinch waste you can't really drawstring it tight without a bulky gathering. I usually wear a size 6 -- I initially ordered a medium, but exchanged for a small. Very happy with the small.


Very comfy and cute! Does run large

This is the cutest skirt! Love the fit, but it does run a little big. Haven't used it yet, but plan to wear it on the river and around. It looks like it will dry quickly, and stretchy to move with me.

Snazzy Little Skort
October 06, 2011

I am 5'2, 125 lbs and a size Small fit perfectly. The skort stretches over my bottom .. with a small amt of wiggling. The length fits 3 inches above my knee. The Medium was way too big, perhaps the skort runs big . The material is flattering and feels great on. Very sporty, durable, fun little skort won't dissapoint !

awesome skort
October 16, 2011

best skort i have bought by far.. love the comfortable material and the versatility of it! definitely a must buy if you're looking for a skort.. already have the black.. too bad the other colours aren't available anymore because i wanted to get another one! if you don't already have one, it's a great buy..

Pros: comfort, material

My favorite skort ever!
April 21, 2012

I lived in this skort last summer and hardly ever wore shorts because of it. I hiked all over the mountains, taught yoga in it, played at the river with my little boy, and just about everything else. It's super lightweight and comfortable and great looking. I agree it's a little tight getting off/on but worth the extra effort given how great it is. The outer skirt material is very silky, lightweight, and water resistant; the inner shorts are silky smooth and very lightweight so you do not feel them.

Wonderful skirt
July 22, 2010

Extremely comfortable, great for travel, and also unbelievably cute. Even though it has shorts underneath, you can't tell at all. Highly recommended. My only complaint is that it's a little tricky to get on and off, but worth the trouble.


Cute and comfy!
March 15, 2013

Very nice skort. This is the first skort I have purchased that the shorts underneath are truly comfortable and do not bunch up or feel bulky. Nice material also.

Runs large - super cute and comfy

The best skort ever!
June 01, 2012

I purchased this skort for an upcoming trip. I wasn't sure i would like it because it slips on with no zipper. I Love it! The material is so light and the shorts underneath are so comfy! I purchased another one in the gray color. I will wear these all summer. They even have a lifetime guarantee !!

Very comfortable, good value.
April 11, 2011

This skort is great for Hawaii and for my body shape (barrel with legs); I can keep cool, look put together, and not wear shorts that creep up in the middle. They do run large and maybe a tad bit short for some; I was happy to fit my usual XL bottom into the L. A little wiggling to put on without a zipper, but love the clean lines. The shorts underneath are black, lightweight and very stretchy - can't barely feel them; the skirt is woven, stretchy, flattering, very lightweight. I bought three pairs and am back for my 4th. They've lasted well over a year with repeated washing/wearing, with no odor retention and no staining - they look new! Great value for the money.

great skirt
March 12, 2012

I'm 5'9'' and 135 pounds and the size 6 fits well. Very compfortable and light weight. I would agree that it's a little hard to put on but after that it fits great!

Pros: fit, light weight

average, but in a nice way
January 10, 2010

They're shorts under a skirt. Who doesn't love that? They do run large, which is a bonus after the Holidays. There's not much opportunity to wear them outside in January here in Chicago, but they're fine indoors so far. I'd recommend them.

Just what I was looking for
December 14, 2009

Super lightweight, great cut and fit. I love the low rise and not too short length. Ease of movement all around.

Comfort & fits well
October 16, 2009

I am glad I read the previous reviews before making my purchase as it was helpful in selecting the size accuratly. This runs a little larger than the usual "medium" so that worked just right for me. Also soooo comfortable to run in! Thanks!!

Love the freedom

I have really been enjoying skirts with built in boy-shorts but not all are created equally. The Expressa is wonderfully stretchy & resilient enough to hike in.


Great active skirt.
June 23, 2011

Great lightweight fabric. Good for hot weather. It's a little hard to get on, but once you pull it on; fits great. Nice lightweight short underneath and fits great.
