Rated 5 out of 5 by LyneV Perfect in every way!
Great fit, perfect length, waist is right where I want it (not too low), comfortable shorts underneath that don't ride up when you're moving, superb quality, LOVE the color (I ordered Dark Fuchsia/Ruby Coral Multi)... I just want to wear it EVERYWHERE!!! So happy with it I'll order a couple more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SPRasse Just what I was looking for
So happy I took a chance with these. I am short and chunky and have been losing weight. Needed more athletic skorts and took a chance that the XL would fit and it does! I feel slender, they look great and it worked great during my fitness session.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CTDawgMom Perfect Skort
I have 8 of these in solid black and every pattern I can find; it's become my summer uniform with a tank. The length is perfect--not too short, not too long. Shorts fit perfectly--not too tight and don't ride up. Comes to my true waist rather than the typical idiotic placement of low-rise waistband right in the middle of my (ahem) problem area. Love the full size pocket which holds iPhone in case, full set of keys and pheromone spray for dog walks.
Please, I'm begging you L.L. Bean. Don't a change a thing...and make more patterns and solid colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RunningMom2 So comfortable and flattering!
This skort is exactly what I was looking for. I ordered a medium- I'm 5'7", 155 pounds and quite muscular. It fits perfectly! The length is just right, not too short, not too long. I really like the shorts underneath. I was afraid they may ride up when I walk, but they don't. They are substantial enough to feel like good coverage, but not heavy. They stay put without being tight. The color nice and bright- accurate when compared to the picture. I will be ordering more of these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BotticelliBabe My newest archery essential
I have this skort in last year's print, but same model. Like it so much I'm buying another.
Since retirement I've put on a lot of muscle doing outdoor work and sports. Always have had an hourglass figure, and run to the nearctic peasant body type. So "I'm looking for a reproductive mate" clothing styles especially don't work for me. I hate clothes shopping. Plus I don't need foofy fabrics for bashing around in the backwoods.
So I bought this skort with some reservations last winter and wore it this summer for field archery, layered atop leggings (protection against midges) with a close fitting hip-length top for brush protection and my field boots. It was a gamble...and it has turned out to be wonderful.
I have full range of movement, especially on steep trails (which I can't get with denim). The close fit doesn't interfere with either my bow or quiver. I could conceivably wear it without the tights, and will try that in the fall after the mosquitos and midges have died back.
The fabric, like my dance skins, can get wet and will dry out quickly both hanging and on the body (perfect for a dip in cold water to rinse off the trail salt), and launders up beautifully. I expected the back skirt to ride up on my curvaceous natural bustle...but it doesn't!
Archery demands no-nonsense, close-fitting clothing, and I don't like wearing the corporate gear largely available to people in our sport. As much as I detest the portmanteau word "skort," I love the garment!

I purchased the fitness skort at the LL Bean store. The first time I wore this skirt I received numerous compliments. Please make this fitness skort in more dark tones (gray, navy, etc)

I play tennis. Most of the tennis skirts/skorts are just too short for my liking. So, surfing the internet, I found these.
Good quality, built in shorts, moves with you fabric, nice pattern, and very comfortable. Length was just where I like it! Price was very reasonable compaired to the cost of tennis apparel. Many compliments.
I am ordering another pair, and color. Highly recommended. And not just for tennis............
