    Wrap around skirt

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    I'd like a skirt that I can put on when we stop at a gas station and such on our bike tour. I thought I'd heard of a wrap around skirt just for this, but not finding it so easily. Any suggestions? It'd be nice if I had more options than just black, too.

    I thought I had seen awhile ago that Terry sells a skirt like that. Otherwise I'd try Athleta or REI.

    Terry has several cute ones, although they don't fit me quite right (the waist is too big). I bought their pull over one, to wear last year when we did a ride in mystic, CT and then went out to dinner afterwards. Pulled it on in the car, after stripping my shorts under a towel (after my trailer park shower!), which totally horrified my friend. She went to Starbucks to change.
    I've worn the pull over one both as a stand alone skirt and over shorts. I like it.

    I'm always seeing these on rides and they are very cute.

    What about a sarong? Lots of color choices with those, and you just wrap/tie to fit

    Those are adorable -- I've never seen them anywhere we ride. Tres chic -- but a bit pricey for me.

    I have one of the Terry Wrapper Skorts, and I use it all the time to wrap around my shorts if I'm running into the bank or a store on a ride.

    I've never seen anyone wearing the Sweetspot skirts. I have seen them advertised a lot. In fact, I don't recall ever seeing anyone, ever, riding in a skort or wearing a wrapper, besides me!

    I'm dubious of the sizing on sweetspot skirts. One size fits 2-14.
    Each day is a gift, that's why it is called the present.

    If you watch the video on their site it's not as crazy as it sounds. The skirt fits on the hips, and it overlaps a LOT on the girls demonstrating the skirt, as in double material along the entire front half. They have snaps running along the top and recommend you use at least three.

    Ah, that makes sense, lph. I didn't watch that as my budget doesn't allow for "frivolous" items at the moment. I just spent my recreational budget on two much-needed pairs of cycling shorts (from TE, of course!) instead. They sure are cute, though!

    Have you ever worn one? I like the idea, but I've never worn anything that sits on the hips like that, and it seems like it could be crazy uncomfortable. But my old overskirt's elastic just gave up the ghost, so I need a new one. I don't wear them much of the time, but if I'm stopping for a real lunch stop I'll pull one on. (The skirt sports ones look like they might be a bit bulky, too, when not on me.)

    Wish I were craftier; I'd make a retroreflective one. XD

    No, I'd never seen them until now. They look supercute, though :-)

    Zoic has some cute skirts. I just got one for like $29.00 on here not too long ago. They come with an attachable (via pieces of fabric) liner short. I wore one on a 30 mile ride once and it was great. They are a lot like the sweet spot skirts.
