I wondered about bearette's comment, too. What does it mean? I wear dresses and skirts to the parks because it is my choice. I feel more comfortable in dresses and skirts. Not everyone wears leggings or shorts underneath for fashion. For some of us, it is because we want to be modest, whether it be due to personal preference or religious reasons.

While I don't wear skirts or dresses to DLR I DO wear them to work at the bar, and since I'm dancing most of the night I wear shorts underneath. In fact, I wore a really cute black and white skirt Saturday night, the kind that flares out when you spin in circles, I wore black Spanx underneath. So I guess I'm the "type that wears shorts with skirts". Whatever that means....LOL

Athleta over spenders unite ! Last trip to WDW I had a skort, yoga top, and Chaco sandal outfit for each day. It was so fun and comfy. My favorite was my purple and red outfit ........

The "Whenever Skort" looks cute, too, but I don't own one (yet! ).

Thank you!! I went and looked at the web site and then found the only store in MD was only 10 minutes away! I bought a Whatever Skort today and may be back soon for a Whenever Skort.

I'm so glad I could help! I was so happy to discover these skorts myself, and I've gotten so addicted to them that I practically live in them in the summer! I love that they are so easy for travel, too. I get a lot of compliments on mine...and I think I'm up to 7 different colors now! I like that Athleta rotates in a new color every now and then.

Ah this has turned into an Athleta thread. I am a big fan of their merch. They offer lots of great travel wear. I do like their summer skirts and breathable moisture wicking tops (and bras and undies) for my summer visits to Dland. These items are made from sports material that keeps you cool and dry in the heat and that work well when you get off GRR and you are drenched. I will never again wears jeans and a cotton T to Dland in the summer - it makes no sense.

So I bought one of the Wherever skorts that everyone's talking about. I like it. Only complaint is that the shorts under the skirt are slightly too short for me. But, the fabric is so nice and lightweight. Thanks to all of you who have been talking about these skorts. I love it!

the sweet spot skort ( for me in tall) is a more fitted silhouette , but also comfy. I do not order the tall in the "whatever" because it is too long ! I really like the bottom zip pocket in the SP. The whatever is so water repellant it is not that it dries quickly.....it just doesn't get wet. a miracle ! Paired with Chaco sandals and I just laugh and say bring on the water !

Just got back, and I wore my whatever skorts each day we were there. One strong argument for wearing a skort or bike shorts under your skirt is Luigi's Flying Tires! There is air blowing up from the ground as you get on and off, and DH was dying watching me try to keep my skirt down! We were laughing so hard by the time I made it off the attraction floor!

Also, we noticed in our ride photo from Splash that without my shorts underneath, that pic would have been part of the "Flash Mountain" collection!!

Thank goodness for cute skorts!

I actually went out and bought a cute dress for my upcoming trip because of this thread! Lol. I too will join the majority of you and wear shorts underneath....For me it's a personal preference. I keep thinking Im gonna trip at some point and eat dirt...haha...So I rather be safe than sorry but thats just me. :-)

Continue on with the Athleta recommendations, everyone! I also love the sweet sport skort. The whatever skort is too much material for me, so the more fitted sweet sport skort works better. I bought it in black last year and I'm considering getting an additional color.

For running, just got the second wind skort, which I love! Too short for the parks, but great for the DL 10K! And for a comfy running top, the velocity tank is great.

Kohls has some great skorts online. Just look under the women's "skirts" section.

Agree with this! Title Nine also carries great dresses and skirts (not just skorts) that work great for trips to the parks. The clothes pack without wrinkles, wash in the sink or tub and drip dry, are comfy and very adaptable for modesty needs, and come with great customer service!

I hate shorts, they never fit me right (I'm 6'2, so even some of the longer off the rack shorts make me look like a hoochie mama)... so as soon as its too warm for pants or capris, it's skirts and dresses for me! Sometimes with leggings, sometimes not. As long as you pay attention to what you're doing, you shouldn't have any problems on the rides. I personally wouldn't go mega short though.
