The activewear skort is exactly what it sounds like: a garment that combines the flattering styling of a skirt with built-in shorts. Typically the skirt top layer has a semi-fitted silhouette that allows for unconstrained mobility while still being flattering. The short under-layer may have the added benefits of compression and muscle support as well as shaping panels for a toned, trimmer look. Activewear skorts are typically made of high-tech fabrics that are lightweight, quick-drying and moisture-wicking similar to shapewear to keep you comfortable during workouts. Some styles are also anti-microbial for odor control. Covered elastic waistbands are comfortable against the skin and the wide waistbands of some styles is figure-flattering too.
