Would You Run in a Dress?

I won't lie to you, I love running in a skirt. They are flattering, cool and not to mention cute. Plus there are many styles out there to choose from making it easy to find one your iPod fits into perfectly.
Originators of the current running skirt phenomenon, SkirtSports has just upped the ante and they are now making running dresses. The aptly named Footloose Dress ($62.50), comes in a variety of motivational bright and feminine colors and offers a built in shelf bra for support (A-cup through small C-cups only). Shorts are not provided, so if you plan to be active, footloose, and fancy free in your running dress you best pair it with your athletic undergarment of choice. You can buy a Footloose Dress (and shorts) directly from SkirtSports.

The concept of a running dress is certainly unique, but I am more of a separates gal. What about you . . .

NO! These are stupid. Why do you need/want to run in a skirt or dress when you can wear shorts. I can't envision ANY positives to this and hope the trend dies a quick death. This looks idiotic. I like wearing a run post-run, but definitely not during one.

I totally plan on trying a running dress out. It looks cute and seems like it should be comfortable. I have no problem looking girlie while I run.

If it was more comfortable than a tank/tee with shorts, yes, I would. However, having to wear a skirt, which is long and constantly slapping against my legs PLUS shorts...TOO MUCH. My step-sister is a tennis player, and she's done it before, so I guess it's do-able!

could you really have any credibility as a runner in a dress? I have problems not exposing myself when just walking in a dress, i can't imagine running in one...

No, of course not. Wouldn't a dress or skirt naturally hike up when I run?? Or flare up at the back? I don't think a dress would work.

people don't dress to run up here and this outfit would make me feel overdressed when I'm huffing my way through my route.

I'm too non-standard shaped, to wear a one-piece like that; it would pull in all sorts of places. But I did recently get a running skirt, and I really enjoy it! It's actually a skorts; the moisture-wicking tight shorts underneath. LOVE.

I'm not sure...I'd have to see how comfortable it was and how it looked on me. I'd consider it though.

I totally agree with skinnymarie. I feel like I would laugh at myself in this, which doesn't bode well for others thinking I'm a loon for running in a dress. I'd just feel way too ridiculous.

I think this is adorable! I agree that people would stare and think it was weird, but I bet it'd be comfy.
