Tribute to the Skort: Active-wear and Beyond


I’m not just an Ulla stylist, I’m an Ulla customer. As I write this message, I’m comfortably wearing Ulla’s Must-have Skort, and I might add, looking sleek and fresh. This is not always an easy accomplishment as the weather gets warm. Today, I want to get personal; I want to talk about chafing.

I want to tell you a story in the words of one of my first clients.

I was shopping in the mall and wearing a denim skirt. I was hot and uncomfortable and squatting every few steps (separating my thighs) because I was developing painful welts between my thighs as I walked. I thought I was being discreet, but I guess I wasn’t.

This big, beautiful stranger came up to me, looked me straight but compassionately in the eye and said, “Follow me, I can hook you up with relief in about 10 minutes.” I followed her to a lingerie department where she introduced me to biker’s shorts (a shaper that comes mid-way down the thigh.) AHHH!!! I haven't chafed since. When we parted she said, “We don’t have to chafe anymore.” And when she said “we” - I knew she meant it. (Debra B.)


Girlfriends, I share this story with you because Ulla offers some great products that are an antidote to chafing:

Please share any suggestions or tips you might have for sisters who deal with chafing. This is truly the stuff upon which we can build our community.

Feel good in what you wear.

Skorts ARE great! I'd like to see more choices and especially in softer fabrics.

I agree with Betsy, some softer fabrics would be nice. I like to throw on a pair of shorts or a skort in the evening after a long day at work, so something soft and comfy would be great.

I love skorts too! I love being comfortable and feeling like if I need to go out, run an errand or meet someone for coffee or even dinner. I'll look fine and won't have to change my clothes. Skorts work in the warm weather for everything.

I'm curious, does anyone use skorts for playing sports like golfing, riding a bike, etc.?

I'm retired and live to play golf. I would love to have fashionable skorts with coordinating tops to wear for golf. Babe's right, chaffing is an issue.

I just love when this blog captures the ear of U.P. leadership!! My understanding is that another skort is being developed as we speak! Yay!
