I have a really, really awesome review and giveaway for all of you today. With almost any type of sports, the hardest thing to do, is to find something that is athletic enough (light material, breathable fabric, etc.), but that is also modest enough (wide enough you can run, leggings or something underneath the skirt so that if your skirt comes up you are still covered, etc.). I found all this and much more in the Swim/Sports Skirt with leggings from Modest Poppy!
Here is a little bit about Modest Poppy and how they began... "The Modest Poppy began in the mind of its owner and operator, Cindy Hill, a few years ago as she struggled to consistently find quality and affordable modest apparel for every day use. There were some fantastic boutique shops that sold modest apparel, but the basics for layering and casual wear could be difficult to find. It was also difficult to find active wear and swimwear that was both affordable and modest. The goal of The Modest Poppy is to provide quality, affordable, and fashionable modest essentials and casual wear for modesty conscious ladies and girls. This includes: skirts, tops, layering pieces, activewear, swimwear, and accessories. Cindy has explored various manufacturers, both domestic and international, to find quality, modest apparel. She has also scoured the Dallas wholesale markets to provide a good variety of modern, modest, "everydaywear." She continues to search for additional manufacturers who provide apparel that meet The Modest Poppy's high standards. Cindy operates The Modest Poppy from her home in Bixby, OK and lives a very active life with her husband, Brandon, and her daughter, Claire (now 3 years old). She is actively involved in her home church, The Lighthouse Church of Tulsa, and firmly believes that our relationship with Christ should impact every aspect of our lives, including our clothing choices."
Before I received this skirt, I was using a pair of denim culottes for training each morning. Since they were denim, they were obviously pretty heavyweight to wear while running, so this skirt made a BIG difference! A nice lightweight material that is also stretchy. I can do kicks in this and it just stretches and goes back to normal size. Loving it!
|Sorry it's a little blurry. This is on race day (I am also wearing a pair of compression socks - runner's shins! :||
I obviously wore this skirt on race day, and it was nice to be properly covered, but still have a nice sporty look. Don't think that you have to look funny or out of place if you are dressed modestly... It's not true!
So, the Monday after the race our family went to an amusement park, and the second ride we took was a water ride. Now, I have to tell you that this made me appreciate my skirt even more, and made the others even more envious. While all of the others came off soaked and having splotches of water visible all over their clothing... You couldn't even tell with mine! I seriously wrung water out of my skirt (so you know it was soaked pretty good!), and you couldn't tell at all that I had just gotten off of a water ride.
Another plus is that when riding the roller coasters even if the skirt came up a little bit, I still had the leggings underneath to make sure that I stayed covered. It was really handy to have this, and my sister have decided that they want one this year, and have added it to their wish lists. :)
|Again, sorry it's a little blurry!|
